PUMPKIN YOGHURT CAKE

October 22, 2016

Summer is officially over! And after two warm and colorful autumn days the sun seems to have said good by until next year. From my office window I can already see the snow level taunting me from the nearby mountain while it’s pouring rain down here.
So I decided to give up on hoping for warm weather and rather focus on my favorite holiday – Christmas!
Let the countdown start: 9 weeks till christmas eve! Go get the cookie cutters and bring out the spices – it’s time for comfort food!
