Good morning! We're having burgers but if I have time I'm also going to make this ahead for tomorrow. I have no clue how much a "bunch" of spinach is though.

Thanks Christina. I have fresh in a bag but I usually sub that for frozen ounce for ounce, so that helps.
 
Bibi
Dec. 6, 2012 3:55 am
Good morning, linda2d! If this is like the bunches of spinach in our grocery, I'd say about 5-8 oz., so half of a bag should be about right.

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Submitted by: JOYCE 
Home Town: Louisville, Kentucky, USA

This is the way to get crisp bacon without having to constantly turn it, watch over it, or get burnt by splatters of grease. It 'fries' up flat and doesn't curl, which looks great beside a breakfast plate of eggs, and makes BLT sandwiches much easier. Very nice when feeding a family or crowd.

Good morning! I've got beans! Anyone want a bowlful? My daughter would not eat them last night, no bacon. My son sis eat a little. He said the bacon made the flavorful and I do have to agree. I do like the beans by themselves. So, I'll put these in the freezer for another time. I'll save my hubby a bowl.

Cranberry Orange Loaf

Orange juice and zest really emphasize the fruity quality of this cranberry-nut bread. 
Recommended by: Elle
Dec. 6, 2012 3:47 am
Good morning! I got home late last night, so tonight I'll try for lasagna again. I had a few slices of this, buttered, last night for supper. Not bad, but not as good as I remembered. This has more baking powder than the recipe I've used for years and I missed the nuts I didn't add. I used my one-cup processor to cut up the cranberries; nezt time I'll cut them by hand. d The tartness of the cranberries just didn't come out in this loaf with the processed cranberries.

Bibi: http://allrecipes.com/my/recipebox/default.aspx?folder=-4&searchwords=holiday%20bread This is a McCormick recipe. I usually add nuts-walnuts or pecans. The recipe is very similar to the one above; I just remember the tart-er taste of the cranberries when I cut them by hand. And I used dried citrus zest and a diluted orange concentrate so I had more orange flavor in it. This is a pretty good recipe, but I'm always hoping to find something better!

Linda2d-You read it right. I was "elle-oh" (read "hello"!) first, but the Viet-nam era spirit in me couldn't resist long. I wasn't sure if it would be acceptable, but it's been two days and Godzilla is the first to comment.

Would Orange extract give you the (orange enough taste over fresh?) I can't use OJ fresh due to the acid? but really want to make a loaf

My daughter and I made this fudge last night. She is in Relay for Life club at school and they are raising money for the cause. I didn't have the marshmallow creme and it's very crumbly. I did use a candy thermometer. Oh well! It tastes good but crumbles in your hand.

How many does it take to make fudge? 2! The handle on one side of the pot broke. My daughter was stirring and holding the candy thermometer in the other hand while I was holding the pot by the one handle (so it wouldn't slide off of stove top)
