Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage
I've used this recipe for the past 3 years and everyone loves it! I think the only thing I'm going to do differently today is boil the potatoes separately from the roast, only because all that time in the slow cooker makes them very mushy, and the flavor in the potatoes is a little overwhelming. What I prefer is the flavor of the cabbage when you put it in with the roast an hour before it's done, I think it is fantastic and it made the people in my family (who don't like cabbage) actually want to eat it. The problem has been that there was never enough space in the pot to put very much in because of all the potatoes in the bottom, so I would have to boil some of the cabbage separately, and that's the stuff that no one would eat, lol. This will give me more room in the crockpot to do ALL the cabbage, and I'm looking forward to that. :)

Cranberry Nut Bread I
This is my first time making cranberry bread, and I read the reviews before trying it myself. I noted that several people said this recipe made the bread very dry, so I added 1/3 cup of sour cream to the mix as well as a teaspoon of vanilla and 1/2 tsp nutmeg for flavor. I reduced the cranberries to 1 cup and increased the sugar to 1 1/2 cups. I also sliced and smashed the cranberries before adding them. I must agree that it is much better after it has cooled. If you try it when it's warm, the cranberries do over power the flavor of the bread. We chilled it before eating it, and it turned out absolutely wonderful! My husband and my son both love it, so I will definitely be making this for our Thanksgiving family get-together. The only thing I would do differently next time is add some melted butter to the top of the loaf while it's baking because the crust did come out pretty hard, which I usually like, but it was a little tough to bite into the corners. Otherwise, I'm really glad I found this recipe!
