Cranberry Orange Loaf
I was on my third piece before I could stop myself - SO GOOD. I followed the advice of many reviewers and doubled the recipe, then divided into three loaf pans (and then tossed two in the freezer, ready for unexpected company). I loaded up on extra cranberries because I love them, and left out the pecans because I'm not a fan of hard bits in a soft delicious bread, just my personal preference. Oh and used butter instead of margarine. Perfect! Now the only challenge is keeping those two frozen loaves for company....

Easy Lemon Cookies
Great texture and very fast/easy - whipped these up in about 10 minutes total when I found out company was on its way for coffee and dessert. However, I like the taste of lemon, not faux-lemon cake mix. Therefore, I found if you want a more "authentic"-tasting cookie (i.e. not so much like fruit loops, which one person below compared the taste to - very accurately in my opinion!), make it with white or vanilla cake mix, then add as much fresh or bottled lemon juice and lemon zest (if you have it) as needed to make it taste fresh and lemony enough for you. Add some flour if needed (one small handful at a time until you have a dough texture you can work with), to compensate for the extra liquid you've added in the form of lemon juice. For an extra boost of taste, I added about a tablespoon of culinary lavender - thus making these into very dainty and convincingly "homemade" lavender-lemon tea cookies, with a soft soft texture and a lovely coating of crackly icing sugar. Yum!

Apple Oatmeal Crisp
Love this, thanks for sharing! Have made it about 5 times in the last few months with little regard for amounts/measurements and it ALWAYS turns out so great. The recipe is very forgiving, very basic (great for adding your own twists) and very easy! Hooray for fewer dishes to wash!
