#CranberryWeek: Cranberry Apple Pecan Bread

I think I’ve told you all about my little problem of hoarding fresh cranberries, right? At any given time throughout the year there are at least three full bags of frozen cranberries in the freezer.

When I found out that there was a blogging event called Cranberry Week, I knew it was right up my alley to join in and showcase those tart little buggers. Cranberry Week is being hosted by Caroline of Caroline’s Cooking. Check in all week to see what I and tons of other bloggers have shared!

I love fruit filled breads that are quick to make. The bread is delicious, especially if you steal a slice still warm, but I think adding in more cranberries or even using fresh ones would have made it even better.
