Just in time for Thanksgiving


In the kitchen with Sharon this week is my new friend Debbie Hicks with her delicious pumpkin bread. Not only did she make it, she brought me in two loaves to work ( I shared it, of course). It didn’t last long.

This recipe is just in time for Thanksgiving. It was a pleasure to meet you Debbie. Please stop in and see us at The Times-Gazette any time. Please bring in some more of your great recipes and we will be glad to sample them.

Enjoy this wonderful recipe, and send me your favorite recipes and I will put you in the kitchen with Sharon. Send them to [email protected] or call me at 937-393-3456.

Have a great week!
