I have an early present for you...

You don't have to wait to open it...

I hope you enjoy it...


They are both great this time of year...

When the weather is nippy...

And you want something a little special...

I got the first recipe from a very sweet friend named Barb...

I think of her every time I make it...

And give thanks that she was my friend...

Barb's Cranberry Bread

Topping Ingredients
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup pecan pieces

Dry Ingredients
2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon salt

Wet Ingredients
1 egg beaten
3/4 cup orange juice
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons orange peel

1 cup cranberries
1 cup raisins

Combine dry ingredients and wet ingredients until moistened.  Fold in cranberries and raisins.  Put 1/2 of the combined mixture in a greased loaf pan and add 1/2 of the topping mixture.  Repeat.  Bake at 350 degrees for 65-70 minutes.  Enjoy!

Now, for some bone-warming White Chili.  Several years ago, we were invited to a casual evening with friends and this was served.  We've loved it every since!

I add a torn up flour tortilla after I heat up the soup...
Janet’s White Chili

2 cans (15 ounces each) great northern beans,

rinsed & drained

In a soup pot, sauté onion in oil until tender.  Stir in garlic, chilies, cumin, oregano and cayenne.  Cook and stir 2-3 minutes.  Add broth, chicken and beans.  Simmer 15 minutes.  Serve with Monterey Jack cheese and tortillas.
