CRANBERRY NUT BREAD

Cranberry Nut Bread - TSLCThis Cranberry Nut Bread made with fresh cranberries is one of my favorite Christmas breads.  I love this bread with coffee during the holidays or just anytime.  It can be frozen without the topping and keeps well for several days in the refrigerator with the topping.  Just reheat in the microwave for breakfast or anytime you want a treat. The fresh cranberries really make this bread.

BREAD:

2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup white granulated sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon orange zest

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup butter or 1 stick or 8 tablespoons, melted

1/4 cup sour cream

3/4 cup buttermilk

1/2 cup orange juice

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 eggs

1 cup chopped fresh cranberries

1 cup nuts, chopped (walnuts or pecans)

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugars, orange zest, baking powder, salt and baking soda.  Add the melted butter, sour cream, buttermilk, orange juice, vanilla extract and eggs mixing well with a spoon. Fold in the cranberries and nuts.  Spray two 8 x 5 loaf pans with cooking spray or one 9 x 5 and bake in preheated 350 degree oven 40 to 45 minutes. (I like to make two smaller loaves because I give one of them away or you can make the one larger loaf)

TOPPING:

3/4 cup powdered sugar

3 tablespoons milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (Optional)

Whisk together and drizzle over bread. Can add more sugar or more milk to get the consistency you like.

Your friends and family will love this bread.  Enjoy!

CABBAGE ROLL CASSEROLE

Cabbage Roll Casserole - TSLCThis Cabbage Roll Casserole is one of my favorite cabbage recipes. My family loves this dish with cornbread.  This is real comfort food and a recipe that most men like. If you like cabbage, you will make this dish over and over again. It keeps well in the refrigerator and can be reheated in the oven or microwave.

1 pound ground beef

1 medium onion, chopped

2 teaspoons minced garlic

1/2 medium sized head of cabbage, coarsely chopped

1 cup rice, uncooked (I use long grain, could use minute rice, too)

1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce

1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained

1 (14.5 ounce) can beef broth

1/4 teaspoon ground thyme

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons vinegar, white or apple cider

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

3 tablespoons white granulated sugar

2 cups shredded cheese (I use Italian style, can use whatever you like)

Brown hamburger, onion and minced garlic in a skillet on top of the stove, drain.  Whisk together in a bowl until well mixed tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, beef broth, thyme, black pepper, salt, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and sugar.  Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray and add half the chopped cabbage, half the ground beef and onions, half the rice and half the liquid tomato mixture for the first layer. Make a second layer and pour on the remaining liquid mixture.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven, uncovered, for 1 1/2 hours or 90 minutes.  Remove from oven and sprinkle cheese over top.  Put back into oven for about 20 minutes to melt the cheese.  Makes about 8 to 10 servings. Enjoy!

Note: Make sure you mash the rice down on the top layer so that it is wet and not dry. You can cover the last hour if you think the rice is not cooking or getting soft. I make this most of the time with long grain rice and it is always done in my oven at about 90 minutes.   I have not tried freezing this casserole.
