Michigan Balaton Cherry Focaccia

Mouthwatering and festive, this recipe from my Cherry Home Companion cookbook is killer for breakfast or dessert.

Scratch Cranberry Bread

Make this ultra-moist bread from scratch or take the shortcut that my sister, Judy Perricone, loves. Every year she makes 12 loaves for her appreciative friends at work.
