Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread

 Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread
Meet the Cook: When I was married, 26 years ago, I bought two popular cookbooks to learn the "basics". Now, I have over 2,000 cookbooks, booklets and recipe magazines I read like others read novels! I take my bread - which I've been making for 20 years - to potlucks and parties. Plus, my family's always loved it. My husband and I have two grown daughters and one granddaughter. -Helen Richards
