blood orange and sunflower seed loaf
this was a dense and hearty loaf. full of fragrant flavor from the blood oranges and a perfect crunch from the sunflower seeds. littlefoodie had 2 huge slices for breakfast this morning...i am pretty sure he loved it although he was hauling sweet booty so he could get to see that giant easter bunny so you never know these days.
when i have bigfoodie daddy tell me why the camera is producing raw, strange photos i will be posting picks once again! have no fear.
