Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe came from our Great Grandma Jean. She was a spry 99 years old when she went to be with Jesus. She loved to cook and more importantly she loved to share her love for the Lord.
Even though she lived all the way in Michigan, she did an amazing job loving her family all the way over here in Washington! Enjoy the bread, we know we do!
