Easy Cajun Jambalaya
Followed the recipe exactly but did add a can of tomatoes and cut the recipe in half because it is only my hubby and me. I also had to cut back on the cayenne and hot pepper sauce because my husband can't take spicy food. I did douse mine with a generous portion of hot sauce. This was very good. My only complaint was that the rice was a bit mushy, but that is probably my fault because I added the tomatoes. Good, cheap and filling.

Cranberry Nut Bread I
This is a wonderful recipe and it turned out very good. I was a bit worried about it being too dry with only 2 Tbs. of oil in it, so I added an additional 2 Tbs. of oil. I also needed to use up an apple that had been hanging around too long, so I grated the peeled apple into the batter as well. I didn't have fresh cranberries (and didn't want to run to the store), so I reconstituted 3/4 cup dried in a bit of water to sub for the fresh. Thank you again for the awesome recipe!
