Dried Cranberry Dinner Rolls

Thanksgiving is only a week away and I don’t know about you, but I’m already starting to think about what I’m going to serve. I don’t usually do “test recipes,” making up a batch of something before I intend to serve it, and this isn’t one. Instead, these rolls came about as al the ideas that I had for different courses and ingredients were floating ... Read More »

Cranberry Citrus Cornmeal Cookies

I would have been tempted to simply call these “Alliterative Cookies”, were it not for the fact that alliterative does not start with the letter “c”. I like the way the current name just rolls of the tongue, though I will admit that I spent a bit of time switching the order of the words around. This is an adaptation of a recipe found in ...

Cranberry Cherry Crumble

I really like crumbles because they can be mixed up on a whim. Fruit in the bottom of a baking dish topped with a mixture of flour, sugar, butter and oats is just about as simple as a dessert can get. The crumble mixture can even be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator for a few days, which keeps the butter nice and firm ... Read More »

Fresh Cranberry Relish

Countdown to Thanksgiving: T-3 days. I like to be able to check things off my list in advance. There’s always so much to do on Thanksgiving Day. Oh, I don’t have a problem with the cooking, but it does get annoying to clean out bowls and appliances every 5 minutes when doing prep work for various dishes. This relish, from Food and Wine magazine is ... Read More »

Cranberry Buttermilk Loaf

I love a versatile recipe. It’s fun to mix up fruits and flavors without having to sweat the details of flour, leavening, etc. This recipe makes a great tasting loaf no matter how I mix it up. Since the fat – butter in this case, though you can use vegetable oil of you prefer – is melted, no creaming is necessary and it only takes ... Read More »

Fresh Cranberry Orange Scones

The tartness of fresh cranberries with the tart-sweetness of orange juice on a buttery background makes these really bright breakfast treats. Well, that just sounds like a description that you’d find in a catalogue, doesn’t it? Even better, it’s true! Drop scones are always fun to make because they’re just so simple to miz and there is no shaping required. Put everything into a bowl, ... Read More »

Cranberry and Cabbage Soup

Somewhat unseasonably cool weather sparked a desire in me to make soup . Generally, during the summer, I stick with cold soups. I love gazpacho, for example. Elise has an excellent recipe for it, though I like mine on the thick side, so I cut down on the tomato juice that she calls for. But the cool weather made me think of fall, which made ...

Orange Cranberry Bread

orange cranberry bread

Orange Cranberry Bread is one of my go-to quick breads that I make several times every year. I make it for myself, for my family, for gifts and for no good reason at all, just to share with friends. It is quick, easy and really outstanding as far as flavor goes. I first started making it when I was little – very little – using ... Read More »
