Cranberry Orange Nut Bread

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon grated orange zest
1 1/2 cups fresh (or frozen) cranberries
1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup margarine, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
3/4 cup orange juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9×5 loaf pan.

In medium mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir in orange zest, cranberries, and pecans. Set aside.

In large mixing bowl, cream together margarine, sugar, and egg until smooth. Stir in orange juice. Beat in flour mixture until just moistened. Pour into prepared pan.

Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until the bread springs back when lightly touched. Let stand 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool. Wrap in plastic when completely cool.

Fancy Coleslaw

5 cups shredded cabbage
1/2 cups almonds, toasted
1 1/2 cups dried cranberries
1/2 cup celery, diced
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1 1/2 tablespoon honey
Salt and pepper

Combine all dressing ingredients, adding salt and pepper to taste, and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Combine cabbage, almonds, cranberries, celery, green onions, and green pepper in a large bowl.

Pour dressing over slaw just before serving. Stir well.

Notes: You can purchase already shredded cabbage in bags in the produce section at the grocery store. This really cuts down on time and effort, without adding too much extra expense (which is worth it).
