Cranberry, Sausage and Apple Stuffing
I made this today and only did a few substitutions. First, I am vegetarian so I substituted pears for the sausage and veggie broth for the chicken broth. I was making a Maple Dijon glazed Quorn brand Turk'y roast to go with it. After cooking the Turk'y roast for 20 minutes on 425F, I added the stuffing mix and placed the turk'y on top and brushed on the glaze. I let it all bake for 15 minutes at 400F, added more glaze, then baked it for another 15 minutes. This made the turk'y and stuffing perfect! Even the ladies at church were shocked to have a vegetarian turk'y and stuffing there, but it was definitely a hit!

Vegetable and Feta Latkes
I made this last year for Hanukkah and plan on making it again this year! It totally puts to shame boring old plain potato latkes! I think I will try it with onions this time too. Long metal tongs and a well seasoned cast iron skillet make this recipe even tastier!

Spiced Applesauce Bread
I adjusted this recipe just as bit similar to everyone else's. I used 1/4 c oil, 1 1/2 c of my own homemade applesauce (one sweet apple chopped, 1 granny smith apple chopped and cooked in water, brown sugar and cinnamon and then pureed in my mini processor) 1 c of flour, 1 c of pumpkin pancake mix from Trader Joes, 1/2 c sugar, 3/4 c of brown sugar, cardamom, allspice, nutmeg and cinnamon. Then I made a crumb topping of brown sugar, chopped walnuts, TJ pumpkin pancake mix, cinnamon and butter. Baked at 350 for an hour. So tasty and delicious! Very spicy with the allspice and cardamom. I didn't measure the spice, just added and tasted.
