RECIPE BACKSTORY
This recipe is from the most "stained" page of my Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook. I can't even imagine how expensive the cranberries are going to be this year, but it will be worth it for this bread. I always triple the recipe and give the bread as gifts during the holidays. It is so pretty and so delicious!
