a twist

barbara from Littleton, CO

I made this with dried cranberries and fennel seed. Fennel is both sweet and savory so it is a good blend. yumm

Super Easy To make, Super Quickly it dissappears!

Marilyn from Cape Cod, Massachusetts

This recipe is a home run. It's so easy to make and it's a huge crowd pleaser. I've made it 4 or 5 times now and it never lasts long. I'm thinking maybe next time I'll add some oange zest to give it another interesting dimension.

best ever irish soda bread

This recipe is so easy & quick to make. I've made a lot of irish soda bread recipes, this one is the best. Everyone loves the cranberries instead of raisins.
