Bisquick Cranberry Bread Recipe Makes Great Snack For Cancer Patients
When going through cancer treatment, sometimes it is easier to tolerate small meals or snacks. In my cookbook, Eating Well Through Cancer cookbook, I have a chapter devoted to Snacks and Smoothies. This bread makes a great snack. Also, this yummy moist bread freezes well. Then, you can pull it out of the freezer for breakfast or snacks. Did you know fresh cranberries also freeze up to one year? I always pick up lots of fresh cranberries this time of year, because I want to freeze them for year round recipes. You can use dried cranberries but there’s nothing like fresh!
