Cranberry/Banana Bread

Michelle Harris


Made real cranberries this year for Thanksgiving and I will never buy a can again!! Mmmmmm... Made so many that I needed to find ways to use up the leftovers so I added some to banana nut bread and WOW!!! Just the right blend of sweetness, tartness and nuttiness. Decided to wrap large and small loaves in pretty seran with cute Christmas ribbons for gifts to family and friends this year. Hope you enjoy it as much as we have. Now back to my diet, darn it ;)
