Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah...

If you remember Dinah Shore then you are probably as old as me. Spending the day in the kitchen made me think of the lyrics Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah. Someone's in the kitchen, I know. Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah. Strumming on the old banjo.

The kitchen was my domain today. Four loaves of pumpkin bread - I have the best recipe in the world, one apple pie, one banana cream pie - for the kids, and two pumpkin pies and some homemade dog treats. Did something different this year...stole this idea from my 'happy hour' neighbors...made one of the pumpkin pies without the crust and with non-fat carnation milk. This was done for several reduce fat for those who are watching their weight and for those that don't like crust. Put a little whipped cream on it and you won't even miss the crust. Happy Tday!

Pumpkin Bread (makes 2 loaves)
3 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
1 can (16 oz) pumpkin

3 cup flour
1 teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg,
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt

-Mix together eggs, oil and sugar, then mix in pumpkin. Sift together dry ingredients.
-Slowly add dry ingredients to pumpkin mixture.
-Spray two loaf pans with Pam.
-Bake at 350 for 1 hour and 10 minutes (mine actually comes out around the 1 hour mark). Use a toothpick to test several areas in the middle of the bread – if toothpick comes out clean bread is done.
-Cool in pan on rack.
