Simplicity in Blogging and Baking

The title of my first Blog Entry includes the word "Simplicity"-such a beautiful word that masks over the reality :-). The reality being that I am computer-challenged and have absolutely no idea how to write a blog. Thanks to a dear friend, I now have a beautiful blog that I hope to be able to actually post on. So, if you are reading this, please pause to rejoice! I did it! I actually posted a blog entry :-)! In the previous paragraph, I shared with you my passions and hopes for this blog in simple terms as will be the tone of most of my blogging-simple and sweet, because I have not the slightest idea how to make it complicated, professional, or pretty :-). That being said, I thought I would share with you one of the simplest yet must temptingly tasty recipes I have-Scrumptious Strawberry Bread. Things just taste better when you attach the word "Scrumptious" to the beginning of the description, don't you think?

Strawberry BreadIf you love berries as much as I do, then this is a slice of heaven.

3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
2 cups sugar
4 eggs, beaten
1 ¼ cup oil
2 (10 oz) packages frozen strawberries (thawed in juice)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Make a hole in the center and add the beaten eggs and oil. Add the strawberries. Pour into 2 greased 9x5x3 inch pans and bake at 350 degrees for 60-70 minutes.
