I got this recipe from an aunt who is a gourmet cook - classy! Great before or with dinner, in a gift basket with wine and cheese, part of a brunch, maybe even a football party, lol.

This recipe worked well but I wouldn't give it rave reviews. I made mine BTW in a regular loaf pan and it was great. The flavors were too subtle to make it outstanding but for a simple dinner bread it is fine.
