  1. Debbie - thanks so much for the apple bread recipe! Someone left a box of apples at the post office for people to "help themselves" and I took a bag of them but didn't know what I was going to make - and you decided for me :) Took half a loaf to work, the other half got gobbled up at home and the other loaf - I froze for later.
