Strawberry Cream Cheese Bread ~I saw this recipe for Strawberry Cream Cheese Bread and I immediately knew I would be making it. The strawberries in the garden are just starting to get ripe and sweet and I have some cream cheese in the refrigerator that needs to be used up. I am seeing my sister this weekend and I am going to take her a nice warm loaf. Don’t you just love when someone stops by with a great homemade item still warm from the oven?
