Cranberry Sticky Buns

2013-12-16_CranberryStickyBuns-300px

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Red Star Yeast.  As always, all opinions expressed are entirely my own. Sticky buns on Christmas morning are a tradition in my family.  When I was growing up, there was a sweet woman in our church who would deliver freshly baked sticky buns each Christmas…

Gingerbread Granola with Cranberries and Pumpkin Seeds

Most years I try to hold off on getting into a holiday mood until after Thanksgiving… I usually have a very strict “no Christmas music until after Thanksgiving” policy. The Christmas season would start with going shopping with my mom on Black Friday. The house wouldn’t get decorated until later that weekend, or sometimes even…

Cranberry Muesli Bars

I think I’ve mentioned before that I’m not really a cereal eater. I can’t really explain it… I’ve just never really been into cereal. I think it has something to do with the way it gets mushy in milk.  I am one of those “texture” people… And, the texture of cereal in milk is not one…

Cranberry Coffee Cake

I have always loved baking in the mornings, especially in the colder months of the year.  There’s just something about heating up the oven on a chilly morning and baking something for breakfast in my PJs. Since Miss Madison arrived, though, I haven’t been doing as much early morning baking. Morning baking has been replaced with…

Cranberry Salsa

I’m not going to be making Thanksgiving dinner this year. I thought about attempting it, but my mother offered to cook and I decided to take her up on it. I’m not so sure that everything would have gotten done in between snuggle time with the baby.  She likes to snuggle.  She also likes to scream…

Cranberry Coffee Cake Muffins

Coffee cake has been one of my favorites ever since I was a kid. It was always a great treat. And, I loved the fact that my mom would make a cake, something typically reserved for dessert only, and serve it for breakfast! Even though I’ve had a copy of my grandmother’s cinnamon flop coffee…

Friday Favorites – Episode 119

The second week of January is here… In fact, it’s almost over! And, I’m still waiting for some snow. I’m one of those crazy people who really enjoys snow in the winter. I could go for a foot or two right about now. Instead, it’s just been kind of dreary and rainy here. All of the…

Individual Entertaining – Cranberry Bread Pudding (WFMW)

2011-12-07_CranberryBreadPudding-250px

It seems that tasting parties and small plates are all the rage right now. And, I couldn’t be more thrilled. I am a big fan of small portions (and the ability to try lots of different dishes without needing to be rolled away from the table!). Not only is it great to go to a…

Friday Favorites – Episode 114

Thanksgiving is now less than one week away! Oh my! Despite the fact that I’ve been thinking about food for Thanksgiving for a few weeks now, it seems that I haven’t really made many decisions regarding what I’m actually making. Fortunately, I did remember to order a turkey ahead of time, so I’ve got that much covered. But,…

Cranberry Nut Yeast Bread

Sure, turkey gets all of the attention for Thanksgiving… But, I have to say, I have always associated Thanksgiving with baking more than with turkey. Of course, I love to bake, so I guess that makes sense! For as long as I can remember, my family’s Thanksgiving table always head a great assortment of homemade…
