When you think of spring break, you usually think relaxation, right? I know I do. But, this spring break has been anything but relaxing, I actually can't wait for it to be over. It's been a week of extra kids at our house, birthday parties, tween girl drama, and to top it all off, prom dress shopping. I never went to prom, so I didn't realize how freaking stressful shopping for that perfect dress would be. Those of you who only have boys, consider yourself very, very lucky.
When I feel overly stressed, like I have this week, I like to calm myself with baking. I am trying my best to shed 10 pounds before summer hits, so baking up cookies or cake wasn't going to cut it. Quick bread sounded like it would be a good option, so I browsed around on Golden Blossom Honey for a bit, until I ran across this Orange Walnut Bread recipe. It looked like a warm, satisfying comfort food that I so needed to end my week with.
The warm, citrus notes in this bread are so satisfying. And, your house will smell incredible as it is baking! A slice of this and a warm cup of tea put me in my happy place. It makes a perfect snack when you need to steal a few minutes away for yourself.
