I've loved to cook since my grandmother helped me stand in a chair and "fry" toast when I was 4. I've been a nurse for 18 years, and my husband and I and our daughter recently moved here to Bristol, Tennessee from Bristol, Virginia—the state line runs down Main Street!

"This was a very tasty, moist bread. Especially loved the apples and raisins that give sweet bites. And I diced the apples really fine which worked well for slicing. Everyone enjoyed it! Only thing is that it probably fits better to make it into one loaf. I'll definitely be making this again."

"This has delicious flavor!! My only problem with it was I think I chunked up my apples too big so it wouldn't slice. I had to serve it as cake. That was OK, but I didn't get 16 servings out of one loaf then. Next time I think I will shred the apples. Again, this flavor was wonderful!!"
