Cranberry Orange Bread

A friend of mine gave me this recipe some years ago. Sadly, we have lost touch, but I do think about him when I make this bread. It is delicious and I give it away every year at Christmas!

6 cups flour
2 3/4 cups of sugar
1 tbl baking powder
1/2 tbl baking soda
3/4 cup butter (I use 1 stick) room temp
3 eggs room temp
2 1/4 cups orange juice
1 bag of fresh Cranberries, chopped (I learned the hard way, use your food processor for this)

Mix dry ingredients, cut in butter.

Whip eggs and orange juice together, adding to dry goods slowly while mixing.

Fold in chopped cranberries.

Divide mixture into THREE greased bread pans

Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until tester pulls out dry

This is always a good festive bread to give at Christmas. Yours looks so pretty and was so good.

How to spatchcock a chicken or turkey!

Finishing some of Cheryl's drafts... Keeping spatchcocking simple. Using a VERY sharp cleaver or kitchen shears -- not scissors, carefu...
