Fruit Round 2


Hey again! I dropped into see you twice in one day! Thanks to everyone who voted for me in round one! I advanced into the second round of the Better Homes and Gardens Ultimate Baking Challenge and today I am up against Marla from Family Fresh Cooking. The winner of this round will head to Iowa to the BHG offices for the final four bake-off!

My Cranberry Orange Pull-Apart Bread is my first homemade yeast sweetbread. It is flavored with lots of orange zest and dried cranberries! It is topped off with an Orange Cream Cheese glaze. It is quite the treat if you ask me!

Voting is only open today, November 21st!

Thank you again for all the support! Truth be told, I was not expecting to make it past the first round! This is truly an amazing opportunity and I am honored to be competing against such an amazing group of bloggers.

    Cranberry and orange is a great combo. My Thanksgiving is made of cranberries, orange and Gran Marnier. You’ve got my vote.
