While I always host Thanksgiving for my large, extended family every year, this year has a fun, extra celebration we’re throwing in. My dad is turning the big EIGHT-OHHHHH before the end of the year and we plan to put together a special dinner for him here at our house. The bulk of family get togethers often default to my house, but I always enjoy the preparation that leads up to these things. My husband laughs because entertaining equals another excuse to redecorate here and there...of course it does, right? Check out how I’m starting to get things spruced up in the living room below.

Pumpkin and Pecan Dutch Baby Pancake

This Pumpkin and Pecan Dutch Baby Pancake will be the highlight of your fall breakfasts...forever!

Pumpkin and Pecan Dutch Baby Pancake | Easy and FUN show-stopping fall breakfast!
There's a really good chance this dish goes by a different name in your house. I made (a different version of) it for my mom a couple of years ago and I thought she was going to come unglued. Being of German decent, she just couldn't fathom why I would call it a Dutch Baby?!? 
"THAT is a German Pancake...not a...whatever it was you called it." Ouch. 
"And furthermore, it should be in a cast iron skillet..."
That was a very fun and informational morning...ha! My mom really tells it like it is, y'all.

However, I started out calling this a Dutch Baby, so it kind of stuck, you know? And, y'all...I'm just a casserole pan kinda girl. There's no shame in preparing this in a 9x13. While yes, cast iron is the traditional method, a casserole dish still gives you the same big "puff" when it comes straight out of the oven. And then it can go straight into the dishwasher. Ahem...cast iron can not. I'm also a dishwasher kinda girl. 

Check out this amazingly fun (and EASY) showstopper of a dish below>>>
