My grandmother's Apple Bread is my favorite quick bread recipe. It's simple, fast and scrumptious. It freezes well and makes a wonderful hostess gift, teacher gift or holiday gift. Can you tell I love this bread? Even though it's wonderful on it's own I couldn't help but wonder what it would be like with cranberries added for the holidays. I'm so glad I did. The sweetness of the apples and bread with the tartness of the cranberries goes perfectly together.
Last year my son had a Zombie Apocalypse birthday party. I wanted to have aged paper for the invites but I also wanted to save on printer ink so I decided to hand stain the paper myself. Tea is so much cheaper than printer ink or store bought scrap book paper. It's surprisingly easy and I bet you have all the supplies you need on hand.
