Pumpkin Week: Pumpkin-Cranberry Bread

What to take to school tomorrow as refreshments for an after-school meeting?

Pumpkin-Cranberry Bread, of course!

Healthy (it's from Prevention magazine) and perfect for an autumn afternoon.
You can find the recipe here.

Here are some of the things I like about this recipe:

Half of the flour in the recipe is whole wheat.
No walnuts (one of the teachers is allergic).

The recipe calls for orange juice...I didn't have any on I substituted a mixture of (mostly) lemon juice and (a little) lime juice, and it worked fine.

The recipe was easy to double so we could make a loaf to eat or freeze here at home.

And for a perfect "go-with," I made a quick batch of...

Homemade Coconut Macaroons

Quick, delicious, lo-cal! What more could you ask for? The recipe is here.

Looks delicious...although I'd probably add walnuts. ;)
