Cranberry Nut Bread I
I didn't have fresh cranberries, so I used dried ones. The bread is moist and remarkably orange flavored even without adding orange zest. I'm going to try it again using fresh cranberries and I'll bet it will be a 5 star with the extra tartness.

Slow Cooker Red Curry Beef Pot Roast
I have made this type recipe for years like one other reviewer, but I learned to make it using sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes, and I have to admit that the sweets are still my favorite but the whites were very good. Oh,and I'm going to try the garbanzo beans next time, because that sounds yummy too!

Best Ever Pie Crust
I made this recipe for the first time today and followed it exactly as written, except that I only rested the dough for about 30 minutes in the fridge. Leaving it the full time will only make easier to roll, although I had no problem rolling it after only 30 minutes. One negative reviewer believed that there is too much shortening, but I don't agree. It's pretty standard in crust recipes and it wasn't hard to handle at all. I would suggest if you are a novice pie maker you need to use some tips to help you, such as chilling the fat first (I didn't do thatbut it never hurts) but I do typically place the cut-in flour/fat mixture in the fridge for 30 minutes or so BEFORE adding the water, while I work on the filling. I always put ice cubes in the water and chill it very cold, and then sprinkle it on a bit at the time, because it will not always take as much as the recipe calls for and it may take more a little more sometimes. I never touch the dough until it can pretty much be formed into a ball with your spoon or spatula you mixed it with. The less you touch it the more tender it will be.
