Cranberry Orange Bread

I just love eating warm bread on a cold fall day. Too bad that only happens when I go visit family..but that's okay because today I made this fragrant bread that filled the entire house with the sweet smells of orange, cranberry,....and fall! Yes, to me this bread smells like fall. Along with pumpkin pie or pie in general (something I have still never made) and anything with cinnamon, maple, or nuts.

This bread was delicious on its own for breakfast, or snack, or dessert. Wait no, not dessert. I guess you could eat it as a dessert, but I don't think it would last that long! The tangy orange juice flavored this quick bread quite nicely, and I just love it when breads are studded with anything, in this case cranberries! Simply delicious!
