Cranberry Orange Oatmeal Bars

Cranberry Orange Oatmeal Bars

I use a lot of cranberry and orange throughout the holiday season, starting in November and going all the way into the new year. Part of the reason is that fresh cranberries are readily available this time of year, and while you can always rely on frozen, I feel a lot more motivated to use the fresh ones when they’re in my kitchen. The other ... Read More »

Cranberry Apple Crisp

Cranberry Apple Crisp

A fruit crisp is the perfect dessert when you want to make something that is both delicious, comforting and not too time consuming. As long as you have a bunch of fruit in your kitchen – and you can usually use fresh or frozen – you can make a crisp. Apples are one fruit that I always have around, no matter what time of year ...

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 »

Around Thanksgiving, I start to incorporate a lot of cranberries into my baking.

Christmas cookies don’t have to be complicated, but it is always nice to put a little something extra in them that you might not include the rest of the year. For instance, instead of baking a batch of plain sugar cookies, you might opt for a batch of these Cranberry, Cherry, Macadamia Nut and Pistachio Sugar Cookies. They are packed with red, white and green ... Read More »

Cardamom Cranberry Muffins

Cranberry Muffins

Cranberries are one of my favorite berries to work with in the fall. Their bright color and sweet-tart taste compliments a lot of different ingredients. Dried cranberries are the easiest to use, since you can incorporate them into just about anything, but whole cranberries pack a lot more of a tart punch and also add a lot more color, so I will go out of ...

Homemade Cranberry Vanilla Vodka

Cranberry Vanilla Vodka

There are many things you can make at home that are fantastic holiday gifts. I’m always a big advocate for homemade food gifts, such as plates of cookies or nicely wrapped loaves of bread. But food gifts typically need to be used right away and it is nice to give something that has a slightly longer shelf life – like homemade flavored spirits. Making your ... Read More »
