Mrs. Maylee’s Pumpkin Bread – SJ Maylee

After I got married, my MIL introduced me to pumpkin bread. Oh my, it’s so good, a perfect side to my favorite cup of coffee and the story I’m writing. I make double batches because it freezes so well. For this, I use real pumpkin.

¼ teaspoon allspice

¼ teaspoon ginger

In a bigger bowl beat together:

16 oz. can pumpkin

In the Blind 200x300


Jane thinks she’s ready to take the risks her business and love life desperately need. Rob’s still punishing himself for a broken relationship that wasn’t meant to last. When the pair let an opportunity pass them by, fate steps in and throws them back together.

An evening of pitch black unrestrained passion at Club Blind opens her eyes to life’s possibilities. Now, if they don’t fight past their personal demons, they might never truly discover what they need most. If they can open their hearts, it might lead them directly to each other where they can discover their truth. If not, they may forever stay in the blind.
