This blog originally started as a place to put the recipes that I have been trying on my quest to lose weight. I've decided to add some of my thoughts as well as some of the exercises I've been doing, and even some of the recipes that are just down right good. You'll find healthy recipes I've tried, and even some I haven't. I hope this will keep me honest, and I hope it will also be helpful to you!

Orange Cranberry Bread
This bread is a favorite in our house around the holidays... you can make it any time of the year (as long as you have cranberries - which could of course be frozen)... we just like it best with fresh ingredients :-)
I have to be careful and give some away because my darling hubby and I like it too much!!!
Orange Cranberry Bread 1 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. Salt
2 large eggs
1 large orange
4 Tbsp. butter melted
2 cups cranberries, coarsely chopped
3/4 cups broken walnuts
Preheat over to 375. Grease 9 x 5 loaf pan. Grate peel from orange and squeeze 1/2 cup juice. Combine dry ingredients. Beat eggs, butter, orange peel, and juice. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture. Fold in cranberries and walnuts. Bake 55-60 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan.
