Cranberries are a symbol of winter. The festive, cheery red color, the sweet sauce (hopefully homemade) that gets slathered all over your Thanksgiving dinner, and the piles of bags of cranberries that you see placed at the front of the produce section of the market, basking in their 15 minutes of fame, until Christmas passes and they’re replaced.

And this year, prepare for cranberry overload, because I’ve been having too much fun playing with cranberries in the kitchen! I’ve always adored the tart, sweet bite that cranberries add to any dessert, and I’ve always fondly remembered how much I loved these browned butter cranberry lime muffins that I made way back when Bakerita was only a few months old. The tartness of cranberries adds a flavor to dessert that I find absolutely enticing, and if you’ve never tried it, well…you’re in for a major treat. [Read more…]

I would have said that exactly 9 days ago, but unfortunately my New Year was rung in asleep in my bed (where I had been since 7:30 P.M., thank you very much), with the beginnings of a nasty bout with tonsillitis. It was a rough 8 days, and yesterday, when I was finally able to get out of the house (because I had literally not stepped foot out of the house in 8 days), I was exhausted by 11 A.M., took a two hour nap, and was still in bed at 8:30 P.M.

This recovery thing might take a while.

While I was sick, I couldn’t even do anything. Like at all. I watched TV occasionally, but even that got to be strenuous and I would get turn it off, roll over, and go to sleep so I was unconscious for my misery. [Read more…]

Cranberry Apple Honey Crumble

Sometimes, I make things at night. Actually, this happens a lot. Usually, it’s fine and I can save some/all of what I made until the next day so I can take pictures of things to share with you all before I let my family and friends pounce on it. However, when we’re having a family get together, forget about it. I like to serve things fresh so the cookies and cakes and pies are usually coming out of the oven as people start to arrive. Things get eaten before I can even attempt to step back and snap a shot. Usually, it’s not too big of a deal. Either I remake it again to share with you if it was that good, or it just never gets posted if it wasn’t incredible (oops). Occasionally, if I’m lucky, I can hide a few to photograph the next day. That’s a rare occurrence.
