Cranberry Oatmeal Drops
Good recipe. I used half whole wheat flour and half all-purpose flour and added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon rather than 1/2 teaspoon. I also used fresh cranberries I had in the freezer which I thawed, drained well and chopped. The cookies did not flatten so I know to flatten them in the future. Oh and I did not make the icing.

Tomato Garbanzo Soup with Rice
I reworked the recipe. Decided that two cans of tomatoes was too much. I also didn't want to use the rice and used onion instead. The response I got from my family was that it was better than they thought it would be. But, I wish the garbanzos had absorbed more of the spices. My guess is this recipe would be better served one or two days later. 1 onion or 1-1/2 cups, chopped 4 cloves garlic, minced 1 (14.5) oz. can Del Monte tomatoes with basil, garlic & oregano (no salt added), pulsed lightly in the food processor 2 cups broth (I used pan drippings/broth left over broth from baking cornish hens the night before) 1/4 cup celery, finely diced 1/4 cup carrot, finely diced 2 tablespoons green pepper, finely diced 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon chili powder 1/2 teaspoon red pepper 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste 1/2 teaspoon black pepper or to taste 1 (15 oz.) can garbanzo beans Saute onion in oil in skillet until onion begins to brown. Add garlic, cook and stir until lightly browned. Transfer to a stew pot and add tomatoes, broth, celery, carrot, green pepper, seasonings and garbanzo beans. Simmer on low heat for about 30 minutes or until carrot is tender.

Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies
I made this recipe verbatim except that I used light brown sugar. I used also fresh chopped cranberries. I formed the cookies, placed them on a cookie sheet, covered them with plastic wrap and set them in the refrigerator to bake after dinner. When I pulled them out they had turned green. I do NOT know what happened. Would have been perfect for St. Patrick's day! I might try it again. Not sure yet. I did do some research though and learned that there was a chemical reaction between the baking soda and the walnuts. I tasted them before and they were bland. This recipe definitely needs work.
