If you live within driving distance of Hollywood, do yourself a favor and go visit the beautiful monastery and wonderful nuns, and buy some of their fantastic pumpkin bread. This small community is struggling to survive, and what better way to help them than to support their baking efforts. With all the greed and excess of Hollywood we need to keep this community as its spiritual balance. If you don't live nearby, this recipe is quick and easy, and the results are great. But, not as good as the real thing.

I live in a wooded hillside area of Los Angeles where it feels like being out in the country. I grew up in Rhode Island, and came to LA after graduating from URI. I recently retired from my job as an environmental specialist. So now I have time to collect internet recipes. My hobbies & interests are aquatics, shell collecting, my cats, feeding stray cats, home improvement projects and cooking. I love to travel and, years ago, lived in Mexico for several months. My favorite cookbooks are the ones written by Diana Kennedy; they are all great; and I have them all, some signed by her when I was enrolled in her cooking classes. I have a lot of cookbooks; some of my other fave authors and their books are: Madhur Jaffrey (especially World Vegetarian, World of East Vegetarian Cooking and A Taste of the Far East), Faye Levy, Martha Rose Shulman (especially Mediterranean Light, Provencal Light and Mexican Light) and Paula Wolfert.
