"Bring a piece of fall and winter indoors with a natural centerpiece that evolves with the seasons. Rebekah Northway from San Francisco’s The Petaler shows us how to create a foraged fall and winter vignette for the dining table with ingredients that can be collected while leaf-peeping. Later, add evergreen cedar foliage and red-tinged eucalyptus to evoke winter."~Houzz

Double Chocolate {Marbled Pumpkin Bread}

Delicious Autumn Family Treat

I can't think of anything better biting into a piece of warm pumpkin bread laced with chocolate. Spread with some butter or cream cheese, and you have a mid-afternoon snack to die for. Oh yum! 

If you want to invert the combination, try baking a batch of chocolate brownies topped with swirled pumpkin (click bottom photo for the recipe). Either way, this unbeatable combination is the ultimate autumn comfort food treat.
