Apple Cranberry Chutney

I made this for Thanksgiving with baked brie. It was so good Kelly asked me to bring it to Christmas. Here is a new favorite. Apple Cranberry Chutney. I used apple/pear mix and dried cranberries instead of raisins.

Freezing Scalloped Potatoes?

Can you freeze Scalloped Potatoes? Do you bake them first?

Pumpkin Bread

When I was first working in New York City, my friend and co-worker Bridget brought her Mom's Pumpkin Bread in for Thanksgiving. It has been a favorite fall treat of mine, every since.

Thanks Spunky. I think of you every fall!:)

 3 1/2 c. flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinamon
1 tsp nutmeg
3 c. sugar

Add in:
1 c. vegetable oil
4 eggs
2 c. pumpkin
2/3 c. water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Pour mixture into into 2 greased 9X5X3" loaf pans.
Bake 1 hour 15 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.
Cool before removing from pans.

It is so moist and delicious.
It is also great to make mini-loaves and share as gifts. My kids love to bring them in for teachers.
