Learning to make stollen and feel at ease with baking bread.

Cranberry Orange Bread
Delish! I made muffins and baked for 20 mins at 375 like suggested. I got 18 perfect muffins. I followed the directions to the letter, except I did add a cup of OJ like some reviewers suggested. I also added the zest of an entire orange and topped each muffin with a sprinkle of sugar before baking. Perfect accompaniment to coffee.

Pizza Casserole
It was bland and too dry.

Sloppy Joes II
This is our fave recipe for sloppy joes. I like my joes more soupy so I add a 14 oz can of diced tomatoes. I swipe out the green pepper for 2 cups of diced celery. I also add a tablespoon of white balsamic vinegar. It adds another level of flavor but it does not taste vinegary at all. I do this to cut the sweet flavor of the brown sugar. I brown hamburger buns in butter. Yummy
