Reviews for Cranberry Orange Walnut Bread
"I made this bread for my husband, while we were dating. He loved it so much that I made him another loaf, this time sharing it with his family as well. His mom, now my mother-in-law, enjoyed it so much that I shared the recipe with her."
"A very tasty bread great for the fall/winter months. A typical comfort food."
