  1. I made strawberry lemon muffins several weeks ago and loved the flavor combo, so I know that your bread must have been so delicious. If I were there, I'd even eat the crumbs. Thanks for linking this up to Sweets for a Saturday.

  2. It looks and sounds yummy! Im baking some Butterscotch flavored bread right now! It will be up tomorrow!

  3. I am going to make this weekend, and post to my blog, and link you! Thank you!
