May Recipes

~ Apricot Bread ~

This Apricot Nut Bread recipe was given to me by my Mom, and probably tops the list as "one of my favorites!" For some reason, it seems like I mostly bake it during the winter at Christmas.

Due to the fact that spring is finally just peeking around the corner, this is a great chicken salad recipe that I create on a sunny summer day. It makes me think of vacation, with a little hint of "south of border." I sometimes omit the clove ingredient.

The Chicken Salad recipe w/ dressing sounds really good! I bet it would be perfect for the summertime...with a tall glass of ice tea with wedge of lemon on the rim of the glass.

Thanks everyone for your birthday wishes. I should mention that to really liven up the apricot bread, add 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts at the end. It is a wonderful recipe if you like apricots. Hugs, Nancy

Hi all, I just noticed I have a serious typo in this recipe. Where it says 1 cup clove pressed garlic, it should read 1 clove of pressed garlic. Holy cow...now that would have been a dish to scare away vampires! Have a happy day!! Hugs, Nancy
