  1. I made this for potluck dinner, and it got RAVE reviews. I let the leftovers sit out overnight (covered) at room temperature, and it's just as good, if not better, the next day. The combination of flavors is really nice - the lemon and orange made a difference, as did the cranberries.
  2. I made this for Thanksgiving one year in lieu of the traditional pumpkin pie ... it was a HUGE hit.


hey there, jenny here! i'm 28, married and a SAHM of Isabelle (1/13/07). i love to cook and try new recipes. i watch food network and read recipes everyday and must admit that i have much more food knowledge than actual cooking skill, but i'm getting better. my hubby never complains and loves that i bake when i get bored (his co-workers don't complain much either!) other than cooking i spend my time chasing after my VERY high energy toddler, reading, and watching my favorite shows (thank god for dvr) i love to shop also but have to limit that quite a bit to be able to stay home and raise babies! my dh and i try and have date night once a month or so and enjoy going to new restaurants, visiting a casino, or just joining up w/ friends for a couple drinks. <img src="">
