Apple Bread
I made this tonight after purchasing 50 gala apples from someone who was selling fruit as a fundraiser. As Jillian suggested, I did half white sugar and half brown and added a generous teaspoon of vanilla extract and nutmeg. It turned out heavenly! I used an apple corer/peeler tool and chopped the apples into smaller pieces from there. I didn't puree the apples in a mini food processor like I do for zucchini bread; I left them chunky and it turned out amazing. I made two loaves as the recipe is written, as a reviewer recommended I baked at 350 F for 1 hour and it was perfect. Thank you so much for the wonderful recipe, I will definitely be making this again!

Vegetable Pasta Salad II
I made this for the family this evening and doubled the recipe since I had 6 adults to feed and I had plenty of rotini pasta. I had some green peppers, tomatoes and eggplant from our garden that were amazing in this. I didn't have any zucchini so I omitted it. I used freshly grated Parmesan cheese rather than feta and balsamic vinaigrette in place of the Italian dressing since that is what I had on hand and it turned out just fine. This was a hit with the family, I will make it again for sure.

As many others have previously said, I too have fond memories of drinking Glühwein at many a Christkindlesmarkt when I was stationed in Germany. I recall being so surprised that I liked it because I typically drink Spätlese and find red wines such as Merlot too bitter. I made this with Shiraz, as a few reviewers suggested, to keep things on the sweeter side. I also used orange juice in place of water as many reviewers suggested. I think using a cinnamon stick and whole cloves are genius as ground versions would overwhelm it. I have tried many other Glühwein recipes and been sorely disappointed, however, this tastes just like the Glühwein I remember. Thank you, Else for sharing!
