Betty Watkinson's Cranberry Bread
A magical cranberry bread recipe that was found on the floor of my mother-in-law's apartment shortly after she passed. This was one of David's favorite childhood goodies. It might sound funny but I always feel a loving presence when baking a loaf of Betty's Cranberry Bread.
