Orange Blueberry Quick Bread


Oh my gosh, the smell of blueberry muffins cooking in the oven reminds me of General Conference weekend with my family, gathered together and listening to the Prophet.  So this morning, I got extra excited when I smelled the sweet smell of this orange blueberry bread!  Conference is coming right up, and as much as I love love love blueberry muffins, I think this year I will making this bread instead!  The orange flavor adds such a nice touch, and my kids just loved it!  Another thing I love, is that it whips up in seconds because it calls for a muffin mix, which I almost always have on hand.  
So good.
So easy.
