Walnut Rosemary Bread

When I think of giving home-baked goodies as Christmas gifts, I tend to always think of sweets first. But this year, I’m trying to include some savory options as well.

This Walnut Rosemary Bread would make a beautiful gift. The bread bakes up tender and full of flavor, with a gorgeous golden brown crust. I think it would make a wonderful accompaniment to a jar of homemade soup mix.
