Spinach, Tomato and Cheese in Puff Pastry

This simple recipe is quite delicious and the servings can easily be doubled and then used as a simple hor d'oeuvres at a party.

Banana nut raisin bread

This recipe was modified from another Else.com. Also I've made these portions quite generous at 8 slices per loaf and included optional raisins and walnuts. I've included the calorie counts for more servings but all include the nuts, without them you save 152 calories per slice (8 slices) or 1216 for the whole loaf.
