Spelt Flour Bread Machine Challah
I make this every week now, Love it! I don't braid it anymore, just plop it into a baking tin and let it rise then bake it for 40 minutes. My family just loves it and it is healthy, the gluten in spelt flour is easier to digest than wheat gluten. Thanks for an amazing bread recipe!

Party Cranberry Salad
I took this to pot luck. Everyone raved about it.It was very easy to make and looked beautiful in a glass trifle bowl. I will make this a lot more!

Blue Ribbon Mincemeat Pie Filling
I would hesitate to call this a "mincemeat" pie, seeing how us Brits know that there is NO meat in a mincemeat pie.(mincemeat is the Victorian name for a mixture of fruit) Call it a "minced meat" pie and it was OK. Neede something else, could not figure out quite what. Will make it again and experiment.
