    1. Texas weather is all over the map these days Mona. We have had one week of really cold temps with snow and ice, then in the 70's right after that! This apple bread is so easy and really good. I added chopped pecans to mine even though the recipe does not call for them. Please enjoy and as always, I thank you for stopping by!
