Introduction

I have been cooking for years and writing about

food for almost as long. I love easy and satisfying

recipes and as a special thank you for joining my

mailing list I want to give you this free copy of

Grandma's Best Quick Breads.

Quick breads are so easy to make and you can

put them in the oven and go away and do other work

for nearly an hour and then come back and check on

them. They also keep well and freeze well. You can

always have one tucked away in your freezer in case

unexpected company shows up. Then you can at least

offer them tea and a slice of your quick bread.

All of the recipes in this cookbook are ones that

my family and I have been making for years. They're

tried and true and all are easy to make and turn out

exceptionally well every time.

You don't have to fuss with these recipes, just

whip them up, put them in the pan and bake. And

you'll have some great treats.

Enjoy!
