  1. Janice,
    I wish you could come to my house and cook for me sometime. This apple bread looks delicious. And the picture of the two women - oh, how I love your pictures!

    You know, I think I like this Header the best of all, as it has deep purples in it. I'm not sure I ever told you, but purple is my favorite color.

    Have a relaxing weekend, dear Jannice.


  2. Wow, that does look amazingly delicious! I'll have to try it sometime soon. Thanks for sharing the recipe, Janice!!
