Reviews forSpicy Cranberry Nut Bread
"Maxine Smith if you get a chance try my Mushroom Spanish Rice receipe I had printed. And then rate it, let me know how you like it. OK Thanks Stephanie"
"I read a review from Nov. 09,2009 paininthebut. This woman probably didn't bother to try this receipe. I thought the same thing about some liquid being missing from this receipe. But the cranberries, sugar and orange peel does make a great tasting liquid. I would recommend this receipe to anyone. Maxine Smith you did a great job with this nut bread. It very moist and very flavorful, and it's not a pain in the butt to make, it's very simple. Stephanie Papachristos Manchester, NH"
"How can you boil cranberries, sugar and orange peel ? I think some liquid has to be missing from this recipe."
