Orange Cranberry Almond Bread

Orange Cranberry Almond Bread

I’ve been playing around with the new White Lily flour blends lately, which combine wheat flour with grape seed flour for a unique (and tasty) alternative to plain flour in baked goods. One of their newest additions to their line of premium flours is Wheat & Almond Flour Blend, which blends a small amount of almonds into their non-GMO wheat flour. The almonds bring in ...

How to Make Candied Cranberries

Cranberries are often described as being both tart and sweet, but they definitely lean more towards the tart end of that spectrum. While they do contain sugar, cranberries typically have to be cooked in some way to bring out that sweetness. One unique way to sweeten them up is to candy them!

Crazy Crust Cranberry Sauce Pie

Crazy Crust Cranberry Pie

“Crazy crust pie” is a style of pie that I discovered on the back of one of my grandmother’s recipe cards.

Cranberry Pistachio Pound Cake

Cranberry Pistachio Pound Cake

Buttery pound cake is always welcome in my kitchen. Pound cakes don’t usually get too “dressed up” for the holidays and are served quite plain, more often than not. There are few things that I enjoy better than a great vanilla pound cake, but pound cakes actually make a fantastic canvas for many different flavors. Their dense, tight crumb will support the weight of all ... Read More »

Cherry Cranberry Pie

Cherry Cranberry Pie

Around Thanksgiving, I start to incorporate a lot of cranberries into my baking. While they’re available frozen all year long, they can be found fresh this time of year – and relatively inexpensively, as well. The sweet-tart berries have a flavor that tastes great in everything from homemade cranberry sauce to cranberry muffins, and a bright red color that makes baked goods look unusually festive. ...
