Cranberry Orange Walnut Bread

 Cranberry Orange Walnut Bread
Cranberry Bread is a natural coming from Oregon, a state famous for its cranberries. And each fall my husband and I go out and scrounge around picking up the walnuts for this delicious bread. A lady was presenting this bread at a food fair when I had the "nerve" to ask her for the recipe. She obliged, and it's been a steady item in our menu ever since. But not just at Thanksgiving&mdas
