Fittergal's Cranberry Pumpkin Bread

Okay, I know this isn't really a desserty dessert, but it's sorta sweetish so, it fit best in here. It's so yummy. Tastes like that last bit of pumpkin pie that you scrape off your plate leftover from Thanksgiving dinner...and you get a bit of pumpkin, a bit of cranberry. Yum!

Dry Ingredients:

2 1/4 Cups flour
1 Tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix in bowl, make a well in the center. Set aside.

Mix in seperate bowl:

2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup oil
1 cup solid pack canned pumpkin

Combine and mix well.

Pour pumpkin mixture into the dry mixture. Mix till moist.

Stir in 1 cup chopped cranberries.

(I have made this bread both in mini loaf pans and in the typical 8 inch sized loaf pans. I have found that with my oven, I need to bake the ones in the mini loaf pans at 350 for about 45 minutes. The ones in the 8 inch loaf pans took about 70 minutes. Start checking early though, my oven may be off!

Hope you enjoy it, it is easier than it sounds and it smells so yummy while it's baking!

shana 123 has announced the following:

Hi everyone!! I have been asked to post an announcement for some of the roomies. They would like to get together in Womensspace to do a recipe exchange. They would like to do a Christmas goodies or favorite recipe exchange so that people can have some different ideas for Christmas. Since you all know I don't cook I offered to be the messenger.
So On Saturday December 16th at 10 pm Pacific or 1 am Eastern time they will be going to the room to exchange ideas and recipes. Hope to see everyone there.

You can post recipes here before or after the exchange. If you can't make it to the chat, post something here, or copy the recipes down afterwards!

Have fun everyone!

Recipe for Fudge

Here is a very good recipe for fudge!
I prefer the peanut nut
butter myself but you can add chocolate chips to make chocolate fudge.

4 cups sugar
1 can of carnation milk
1 stick of butter
Use a dutch oven size pan as this is a lot of liquid. Cook over meduim
heat stirring constantly until sugar is disolved.
Cook til soft boil stage
(this is when a small amount dropped into a cold cup of water you can
form a nice soft ball.
remove from heat
Add:
1/2 package of minature marshmallows and half
jar of peanut butter and beat until all is melted.
Candy will start to lose its gloss.
Pour into a 9x12 pan or use to pie tins.
Cut into desired squares
when cool.
This keeps really well.

Hope you enjoy this recipe.

WHITE CHOCOLATE-CRANBERRY BARK

This is such an easy christmas confection....

You melt 6 oz. (or whatever amount you want)white chocolate in the microwave, add to that 1/2 cup (again, I just use as much as I want) dried cranberries, or craisins. Spread thinly onto a waxed paper lined cookie sheet, and regrigerate. Once hardened, take out and break up like you would peanut brittle.

So easy, and always a hit. It also makes a nice neighbour or teacher gift, if you put in a nice baggie with a ribbon.

The deli down the street from our office sells lemon bark that is FANTASTIC. I wonder if there's a recipe for that somewhere?

Hi....I have a recipe.....STOP LAUGHING!

Okay, actually Mr.Cod found this recipe recently, made it, and ate it by himself. I'm not fond of peanut butter fudge, but evidently HE is! The first 2 words of this recipe IS up my alley though. ;-)

NO COOKING Peanut Butter Fudge:

1/3 c softened margarine, 1/2 c karo corn syrup, 3/4 c peanut butter, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp vanilla

Mix together and stir in 4,1/2 c powdered sugar

Knead until well blended. Roll out and cut into squares.

The End.

((((Everyone))))

My mother was a woman who worked outside her house, so Christmas baking for her often happened at night. Then, she could whip up a batch of her famous divinity--or these very easy brownies. This recipe is so old and so easy that I always assume everyone knows it. If you don't, enjoy!

Special Brownies

Mix together:<br>
2 cups graham cracker crumbs<br>
7 oz. chocolate chips<br>
1/2 cup chopped walnuts<br>
1/2 tsp. vanilla<br>
1 can Eagle Brand milk<br>

Bake in an 8X8 well greased pan for 45-60 min. Cut into suqares and watch them disappear.

Merry Christmas!

2 lemons cut up ( don't peel )
1 pound of Honey

1 bottle of Four Queens ( blended whiskey)
In a large pot, put in the Oranges Lemons Honey Ginger Ale Cinnamon Sticks

The best Hot Chocolate you've ever had!

2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
2 cups milk
1 cup heavy cream
6 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Melt the chocolate in the top of the double boiler. In a separate pot, heat the milk and the cream on low heat until hot but not boiling. When the milk is hot, slowly add a bit of it to the chocolate till you have a thin paste. Then stir in the rest of the milk and cream, the sugar, and the cinnamon.

In a bowl beat the egg and the vanilla with a rotary beater. Add a very little of the hot chocolate to the egg ( you don't want to "fry" the egg in the hot chocolate)and then stir the egg mixture into the hot chocolate. With the double boiler still on low heat, beat the chocolate mixture with a rotary beater for about three minutes. Serve immediately.

Chicken Tortilla Soup

I think this was destined. I was just checking the boards and saw this post, Mo, and there on top of my pile of papers to file was my recipe for Chicken Tortilla Soup! This recipe came from the Legends Rancho Deluxe and chef Micheal Hanrahan. I've adjusted it slightly to suit our taste.

1 tablespoon cooking oil
8 whole corn tortillas - cut into 1" strips
1 large chopped onion1&1/2 tablespoons jalapeno pepper - seeded, washed, and finely chopped
5 cloves garlic - crushed and minced
2 large cans crushed or diced tomatoes with juice
1 tablespoon ground cumin
8 cups chicken broth
2 cups boneless skinless chicken breasts cooked and shredded
salt and pepper to taste (you won't need much if any)

Heat oil in large Dutch oven over medium/high heat. Cook tortilla strips about two minutes until they are crips stirring occassionally.

To the cooked tortilla strips add onion, pepper, and garlic and saute a few minutes to soften.

Add canned tomatoes and cook until onions are transluscent.

Stir in cumin, broth and chicken. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer approximately 40 minutes.

Many people prefer tortilla soup to be creamy. If so at this point pour half of soup into a blender and process until smooth. Pour into a large bowl, and repeat with remaining soup. Return to pan to heat thoroughly.

(I prefer my soup to be somewhat chunkier, so I simply whip it with a wire whisk to break it into smaller pieces but keep the integrity of many of the ingredients...besides it looks better to some people.)

To serve, ladle into bowls and top with any combination of broken tortilla chips, shredded cheddar cheese, chopped onion, chopped tomato, or diced avocado.
