Comments from the Cook – Heather McCoy

I love apple cinnamon bread especially at Thanksgiving - mostly because I absolutely do not like pumpkin anything. This is a great desert to have for those who don’t like pumpkin anything, like me. My littles haven’t tried this yet; but knowing them, I am sure that they will love it. I think my boyfriend, Eddie will like this too even though he picky with his sweets.
