Melissa and I were invited to speak in Lexington at the Regional Cooperative Extension Holiday Meeting and we had the pleasure of seeing Tootsie Nelson speak and cook!  She hosts a Cooking Show on Channel 18 in Lexington, KY.  Cranberry Nut Bread with Orange Cranberry Delight was one of the recipes that was cooked for us!  It was WONDERFUL!  It is perfect for a Holiday breakfast or brunch.  The topping is amazing!

    This bread looks so delicious and I think I should make it for my daughter. She just had a baby yesterday (which I got to witness) and tomorrow, I am going to stay with her for a few days and want to make her special things. She would love this.
