An Autumn Romance – the Movie!

Hi everyone,

My newsletter went out today in which I shared more details about The Tycoon’s Kiss movie which is now called An Autumn Romance, starring Jessica Lowndes and Chad Michael Murray, and premiers on the new GAC family network on October 23rd!

If you received the newsletter but didn’t see a tv channel option that works for you, here’s a longer list of places that carry the GAC network –

I am so excited for the movie and am planning to get completely in a Fall-ish mood by baking my delicious pumpkin bread, which is a family favorite, especially for my 12 year old, Mac! If you’d like to try it out too, here’s the recipe.

Jane’s Favorite Pumpkin Bread


2 cups all-purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup, leveled off
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1-1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) unsalted butter, softened
1-1/2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 15oz can 100% pure pumpkin (I use Libby’s)


Preheat oven to 325°.
Grease 2 8×4 loaf pans with butter and dust with flour.
Combine flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Whisk well and set aside.
In a large electric mixer bowl, beat butter and sugar on medium speed until just blended.
Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until light and fluffy.
Beat in pumpkin. Mixture should look grainy and curdled. That’s okay.
Add flour mixture and mix on low speed until combined. Turn batter into prepared pans.
Bake for 65-75 minutes or until done.
Let loaves cool in pan for 10 minutes then turn out onto wire rack to cool completely.
Fresh out of the oven, the loaves have a deliciously crisp crust. If they last beyond a day, you can toast individual slices to get same fresh-baked effect. Enjoy!

I’m celebrating the premier of The Tycoon’s Kiss movie (aka GAC’s An Autumn Romance) with a fun giveaway. For a chance to win, leave a comment below and let me know what’s your favorite thing about the Fall season!

I have more good news coming soon so I’ll pop up again in your inbox in a couple of weeks to share. In the meantime, stay happy and cozy and enjoy the pumpkin bread!
