Cranberry Bread 2018 AFTD Food For Thought Campaign #endFTD

This is something we always had at Thanksgiving. Orange and cranberry have anti-cancer properties, too, and our mom is being treated for sarcoma again this year. Order some wine bottles from Grapes & Hops for your family to go with your meal. They have a great selection and if you tell them you are trying to support the Food For Thought event, 25% will be donated. A win-win.

In honor of this year’s AFTD Food For Thought campaign, I will be posting some of Lydia’s favorite recipes. She liked cooking, watching Anthony Bourdain, the Cooking Channel, the Food Network, Gourmet Magazine, Saveur, Martha Stewart and many, many more. I have her cookbook collection at my house, plus there is a stash of hers at our parents’ house, too.
