Every Christmas, we whip out the family cookbook and start baking. I don’t know what it is about our old family recipes, but nothing ever seems to stack up against them. One of our favorites is cranberry bread. Not too sweet with a wonderful crunch, it makes for a tasty treat or scrumptious breakfast bread. My dad baked up a batch for the neighbors this week, so I snapped a photo before it was shipped off. It may not be the best picture, but I promise you will love this bread.
