  2. Hi Nee,
    Wow, your Walnut - Carrot -Lemony Bread looks so appetizing. Love breads made with nuts and warm spices. What I love about this bread is that you used the cereal, never would have thought of that. So it is not only delicious but you are getting your bran as well. Wonderful combo!...Thank you for sharing...Blessings on this Tuesday...
