Cranberry Orange Nut Loaf

O.K. I have officially lost it.  I inherited a combination
 convection/conventional oven.  I was so excited , but
couldn't find any recipes for a convection oven.  I went
to the library and checked out a book with this recipe in it.
I bought all the stuff, put it together, and placed it in the oven.
As was my habit, I turned on the convectional oven.  Oh well,
I'll try it again. This was an awesome  recipe that I will try again.
If you use  a conventional oven, be sure to cook it longer.
