@imera that advent calendar looks very tempting.
I have been baking today
Project @MistressJennies moms orange and cranberry loaf. There were fresh cranberries in the shop so I took the opportunity to grab them and make this. It is delicious and the cranberries give it a lovely sharpness. The recipe is here, c&p from another thread
*Ok @Edel, my mum’s Cranberry Orange Bread. I have no idea where the recipe came from. She has it handwritten in a binder that she’s had since I was a kid. I have a handwritten copy I made of hers, when I moved out.
2 cups All Purpose flour
1 cup sugar (I usually use a scant cup, like 7/8 cup)
1.5 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted (mom always used margarine)
1 egg, beaten
zest of 1 orange
3/4 cup orange juice*
1.5-2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries (chopped in half)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Mix the wet ingredients in a medium bowl. Whisk together the dry ingredients, and add to wet ingredients. Fold in cranberries.
I made two kerchiefs and matching scrunchies for a miniature schnauser and a friend of my acquaintance. They wanted christmassy fabric.

I made 20 pairs of earrings for a craft stall as a fundraiser for our cancer support centre. All sorts of designs and colours. Much like house unity, everyone is represented.
