So, are we good, or what?? :evillaugh:

:shh: and yes, I have both Kim and Bob's permission to use both the recipe and the image :nod: :D

:new: EDIT: If you want a no mixer version of this... that is really easy :clap: check out this recipe, too:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Kim's Cranberry Fruit Nut Bread

Makes 1 large loaf or 3 baby loaves.

Note: You will need a chopper or grinder to chop up the cranberries :nod:

2 cups all purpose bleached white wheat flour
1 cup granulated white cane sugar
1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking POWDER
1 tsp. salt -(optional)
1/2 teaspoon baking SODA

2 Tablespoons vegetable shortening (solid Crisco)
1 Tablespoon grated orange peel -- I don't always put in, but adds some tang to the bread, if you like a more tart bread.

3/4 cup orange juice
1 well-beaten jumbo size egg
2 Tablespoons water
1 cup chopped cranberries
1/2 cup chopped nuts - (optional)

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Stir in orange juice, peel, water, shortening and egg to dry ingredients. Mix until well-blended.

Stir in cranberries and nuts. Turn into 9 x 5 inch loaf pan, greased on bottom only. Bake 55 to 65 minutes at 350 degrees fahrenheit (180 degrees celsius), or until a toothpick inserted in the top, comes back clean. Remove from pan about 10 minutes after removing from oven.

Cool thoroughly before serving. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap (if shipping, or gift wrapping) then wrap in aluminum foil, so that the bread will stay moist :nod:

For our international friends :hug: there are easy to use conversion charts available on the web, for converting cup measurements to grams :nod:

This bread keeps well, and ships well, making it a great addition to holiday presents! :clap: and is very yummy when the slices are buttered and warmed slightly in the microwave! :w00t:

Oh, drats!

I just cooked up the last 2 bags of cranberries a week ago and made a juice with them. Had I seen this I'd have made the bread. I :heart: cranberry bread. I'm going to keep all of your and Bob's recipes in my devwatch area so it'll remind to try them. :hungry: I know my two guys will love the cookies especially. :nod:

:hmm: it might be better to put them in a special collection in your favs :nod:

The bread is really yummy... I just made our first batch, and I'm going to make a minor edit to the recipe (as soon as I can get my comments and such to a respectable level :giggle:) so when you have more cranberries and orange juice on hand, be sure to re-check the recipe :D

Thanks for stopping by babe! :glomp: Bob is really enjoying the Popular Photography magazine :thanks: :hug:

I don't do too much bread baking due to not being able to eat wheat but I've recently found some alternative flours that I'm going to try with this as it sounds just too good! (I actually ate cake for the first time in close to 20 years last week! :faint: it was soooo good - a lemon poke and pour one with a pack of jello in it and a powdered sugar/lemon juice glaze :drool:)

Do save me a slice....

and happy christmas to you all once more! :)

Regards to Bob.... I have not been well for a few onths so am way more behind than usual!!!

You guys are never too far from my thoughts though!

Hope the cities comp went well... Sorry I didn't get there in the end.... Might take some nice Amazon shots for you in January though.... I want to visit the Shipibo shaman for a while and hopefully meet Pablo Amaringo (ex-shaman turned excellent psychedelic artist - worth googling) so I'll definitely be photo hunting too! ;)

and I totally get the being behind! :evillaugh:

:slow: it took me a sec to get what you meant by "cities comp" :laughing: yes, this year's contest went extremely well :clap: the hardest part was judging... for competition was stiff for the top 6 spots :w00t: After the holidays, I'm going to feature the winners... so you'll be able to see their other works :eyepopping:

We'd love to have you in next year's contest :nod: I just hope we'll be able to garner the same level of prizes :fingerscrossed: they amazed even me! :faint: :w00t:

Oh, YUM! I LOVE cranberries and this looks delicious! :drool: I will have to try this one!

Those candles are gorgeous, Bob! I miss having pretty candles around the house, but I can't handle the scented ones with my allergies and the only non-scented ones I ever seem to find are plain old white.

Bob says thanks for the kudos :dance: and says to tell you that his candles don't always have scent :nod: which is the beauty part about pouring your own :D Neither one of us is big on the usual potpourri scents that most candle makers want to infuse their candles with... for the stuff gags us :giggle: so we make our own! :clap: but, Bob is much better at cool color combinations and designs than I am :wow:
