Janet's Rich Banana Bread
I really like it, few changes, I used 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar, added some golden raisins along with the walnuts and about and extra tablespoon of the sour cream. Really good bread, it's a keeper and will share.

Spinach and Tortellini Salad
Excellent, easy, delecious. But of cours I always tweek it a little bit. Instead of sliced olives I used chopped olives, they stick to the pasta in a really nice way, also added some green onions to it. Make sure you go easy on the salad dressing, and of course I used fresh baby spinach.

Cranberry Nut Bread II
Very tasty, easy bread to make, did a few changes. I doubled the recipe, hate to go thru all of that work for one loaf. Then I added and extra egg, and instead of the butter added 1/2 cup of vegtable oil, also added about a tablespoon of cinnamon, hey what is a holiday bread without cinnamon!!! I baked 4 loaves, 2 little ones and 2 bigger ones, perfect, delecious, pretty and great last minute gifts.
