Aunt Theresa’s Pumpkin Bread Recipe

For those of you who’ve already read Convergent, you might have noticed a scene where our heroes enjoy a special treat–Mrs. O’Gara makes a few loaves of Aunt Theresa’s famous pumpkin bread. Well, this happens to be inspired by a real recipe that’s been in my family for generations… and if you want to give it a try, it’s absolutely perfect for the holidays! This is what Thanksgiving and Christmas smell and taste like in my house… and in Marsha’s. 🙂
