A bike ride through Sonoma inspires me to bake more.

Happy Friday!  

I am finally getting caught up after being in California last week.  

I went on a bike tour through Sonoma for three days, and I was worried about going so late in the season.  That the weather would be bad and the views would not be as gorgeous.  

I was so wrong. Our guide stated over and over how now is the best time to go.  The weather is cool, but not cold and the grapes have all been picked so there was no traffic transporting workers or grapes.  

Let me just tell you.. the colors… speechless.  Because of the different kinds of grapes, the leaves change to different colors.  You would be riding past an orchard of grapes that shined with the colors of red, burgundy, gold, and yellow. A true buffet of color for the eyes. GORGEOUS!

All the delicious wine we drank didn’t hurt either.

I tend to overcook for Thanksgiving.  Who’s complaining?

Now that I am back home I am on the Thanksgiving train.  I have been writing the menu, making a schedule of when to cook what. I can’t wait for all my boys to come home.  

I am trying to not over cook this year.  I tend to make A LOT of food for Thanksgiving.  Since I love baking my guests will be ensured to have plenty of cakes, pies, and cookies to choose from.

When is a cake dessert or breakfast?

That brings me to this gorgeous, let me tell you how moist, cake.  This beautiful cake is flavor packed and dense with all the perfect flavor combos of fall.  The pumpkin and ginger compliment one another and maple syrup sweeten the deal.  What is not to love.

Pumpkin and Ginger Pound Cake would be a great addition to your holiday menu, or just to enjoy during the week.  It would also make a fabulous holiday gift.
