I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Cranberry Orange Bread

The combination of fresh orange juice and bursts of zesty cranberries makes this the perfect holiday loaf!

4 cups flour
2 tsps baking soda
1 1/2 tsps salt
2 cups sugar + 1/4 cup to toss with cranberries
3 cups fresh or frozen cranberries, halved
2 tbsps orange zest
2 eggs
1 cup fresh orange juice
1 cup water
2/3 cup vegetable oil

First cut the cranberries in half and toss with 1/4 cup of sugar. Don't chop them as you'll lose the beauty of the berry. Set aside.
Mix the flour, baking soda and salt together.
In a large bowl combine 2 cups sugar, orange zest and oil, then add the eggs. Alternate adding the flour mixture, orange juice and water to the bowl. Once combined fold in the cranberries. Oil your pans and pour the batter in. Bake in a 350°F oven. See times and pan sizes below.

Choice of pan sizes to use:
8 - 3 X 2" mini loaves + 4 - 5 X 3" small loaves.
The minis take 30 minutes and the small loaves take 45 minutes.
Or your could choose 24 muffins at 20-25 minutes or simply 2 regular loaf pans and bake them for 60-70 minutes.

Let cool on racks a good 15 minutes before turning out to cool completely.
