There's Nothing Like Family

Happy Birthday
to my beautiful
Mom, Oct. 1 !

So, I consider this blog a form of "sharing," but I do have to brag for just a minute about my wonderful family.  We've got gorgeous mommies, elegant and intelligent sisters and brothers, a Coast Guard Academy Cadet, international missionaries, business owners and BEAUTIFUL BABIES everywhere!  Today's recipe is from my sister-in-law, Heidi.  She's helping me put together our family and friends cookbook which should be out within the next six months.  Let's just say I've never left her home unhappy or hungry.  This bread is so delicious, you won't believe its so good for you!
