Gingerbread Pear Cake
This is easy to make, especially if you have silicon or easy-release baking forms. It would be a shame if this stuck or got torn - the fruit on top is very pretty. As another person recommended, I used honey instead of corn syrup, since I don't stock that. Turned out great!

Cranberry Hootycreeks
Everybody loves these when I bake them. I also give them as gifts in the layered, jar form. I personally prefer walnuts instead of pecans.

Schweinebraten Pork Roast
Oops! I doubled the spices because I thought that would be a good idea, but then realized my roast was half the size the recipe called for - so I had quadrupled! My husband enjoyed it, but I thought it was a bit over-spiced, but still edible. A wonderfully easy thing to throw together while working at home. I put it in the slow cooker on low, made it a theme dinner with the German red cabbage and gingerbread pear upside down cake.
