Persimmon and Toasted Walnut Bread

I think I went thru some kind of post holiday withdrawal. Holiday withdrawal + sugar withdrawal = not good. I’ve been feeling blah all week. All the Christmas decorations have been taken down and packed away until next year 😦 It was a sad sight when I saw all our neighbor’s Christmas trees left on […]
