Hi there! I’m Kadee and I blog over on Oh So Delicioso where we loooove food. You’ll find beautiful photography, food tips, party ideas, and lots and lots of delicious recipes. I’m excited to be a guest blogger and share one of my favorite recipes with you all.

Lapis Loaf Pan ,Pumpkin-Bread

I am a big Fiesta fan and have a particular love affair with the bakeware. There is something about have a beautiful baking dish that makes preparing and eating food so much better. I’m pretty much in love with this beautiful loaf pan in lapis.

Lapis, Pumpkin-Bread

Today I wanted to share one of my favorite fall flavors – pumpkin! I don’t discriminate when it comes to pumpkin. I’ll take the cakes, the cookies, and pies, and the bread! Which is what I am going to be talking about today – bread. I love quick breads – but there is something about pumpkin that is so special. I adore that earthy flavor combined with the spices of the season. For a little punch of creaminess I added in a cream cheese filling. You’re looking at heaven on a plate right here.

The only thing I don’t like about this recipe is waiting for it to bake! I wish I could snap my fingers and have a perfectly baked quick bread in seconds. There is a plus side though – by the end of the baking time your house will smell like heaven.

If you can wait long enough for this baby to cool, you’ll cut into perfectly moist, flavorful pumpkin cream cheese bread. This recipes makes 2 loaves, so you won’t have to worry about sharing. You’ll have one for you, and one for a neighbor.

DIY Father’s Day Edition

Father’s Day is right around the corner, and this year, we want to show dad just how much we appreciate him. Nothing shows your dad how much you care like homemade, DIY gifts. Now, we’re not talking homemade cards that we would make in our elementary days; although, your dad probably has a pile of them stashed away to look at from time to time. We’re talking about quick and simple gifts that dads of all ages can and will enjoy, and that we enjoyed making ourselves. So, put away those markers, crayons, and construction paper, and break out the glue guns and scissors; it’s time to channel our inner ten year old and get to crafting!

The first gift that we will be making for dad is the perfect sweet treat that is sure to satisfy any chocolate craving; a bouquet of your dads favorite candy. We found that the perfect piece to display this bouquet is in our Fiesta® utensil crock, which dad can then use to store nuts and bolts in the garage. What you will need for this gift is:

-A foam ball

-A hot glue gun

-Wooden rods

-Candy bars

Bouquet SuppliesTo start, take the hot glue gun and glue the wooden rods halfway up the back of each candy bar, pressing gently to secure the rods to the wrapper.

Glue gun

Once the glue has dried and the rods are secure, place the foam ball into the Fiesta® utensil crock, and firmly press one of the glued rods into the middle of the foam ball. You may want to cut about an inch and a half off of the rods so that they sit lower in the utensil crock. Continue to place the rods into the foam, strategically surrounding the first rod, making sure to press them all the way to the bottom of the foam.

To finish up this DIY project, fill the remaining space in your Fiesta® utensil crock with pieces of your dad’s favorite bite-sized candy. We chose white chocolate peanut butter cups and chocolate covered caramels. To add another simple touch, chose some ribbon in a pattern that complements the utensil crock, cut it to the proper length, tie it in a simple knot, and watch your dad’s eyes light up as you hand over this sweet treat.

Finished Bouquet

If your dad is more into something sweet and salty, we have just the gift for him! This simple gift can be completed in just a few short steps. What you will need for this gift is:

                -Peanuts

                -Bite-sized candies

Latte

It’s really that simple. For this gift we used our Fiesta® Latte Mug and our 16 ounce Tervis Sunny Dots Fiesta® Tumbler as containers for the peanuts and your dad’s favorite bite-sized candies. Alternating between peanuts and chocolate covered candy, pour layers of each into both the Latte Mug and tumbler.

Finished Latter

Once you have filled both to the brim, dress them up by adding a creative cutout saying “Dad’s Stache.” This gift will leave your dad snacking all day long.

Our next Father’s Day gift is one that we think would be a hit with dads everywhere: shot glasses. These are not just your run-of-the-mill shot glasses, though. We have transformed the timeless Fiesta® AD Demitasse Cup into a shot glass. Pair a few cups with your dad’s favorite liquor and you’re sure to have a winner.

Shot Glasses

Last, but certainly not least, is another gift that is an all-time favorite: a platter of your dad’s favorite cookies. For this gift we used a Fiesta® Medium Oval Platter to display our cookies. We baked the classics for our dads this Father’s Day: chocolate chip and oatmeal cookies. How can you go wrong with those? However, if these are not your dad’s favorite, feel free to substitute them for his go-to’s.

Cookies

If these gifts don’t seem to suit your dad, check out some of our Fiesta® Hacks for other gift ideas that are sure to please dad.

Happy Father’s Day!
