I love the holidays and all the cooking, baking and decorating that comes with November and December. I love making boxes and baskets filled with goodies for friends and family. This bread is just one of the recipes I use. It is easy and delicious. This bread is great warm, spread with butter or cream cheese and a big cup of coffee or hot chocolate.
