Apple-Cranberry Crumble

Rating: Unrated
Original recipe is a twist on my Mom's version. Fast and easy dessert, great for fall season when apples are freshest and the cranberries come in. I have made it without the apples or using frozen cranberries. I enjoy it as a dessert and as a breakfast treat around the Thanks-Mas season. Loaded with antioxidants! I have also made a wheat-free version using nut flour. Serve plain or topped with ice cream, whipped cream, or a drizzle of heavy cream.

Cranberry Orange Rolls

A different take on sticky cinnamon rolls! I like to frost these cranberry buns with a simple vanilla glaze, but feel free to use any kind of icing you like!

Bacon-Wrapped Cranberry Walnut Pork

Rating: Unrated
This amazing roast pork recipe is more than festive enough for the fanciest of holiday menus, but it's also fast and easy enough for any old weeknight. Just keep that last part to yourself, so as not to ruin the mystique. Beyond being able to adapt this to your tastes, another advantage is that we can prep it ahead of time, and just pop it into the oven when we're ready to rock, and by "rock," I mean impress our guests.

Apple Cider-Cranberry Bread

This is a sweet and slightly tangy apple cider bread for breakfast, snack, or just when you need a little something... Happy baking!

Cranberry Sauce with Orange Juice

Rating: Unrated
The warmth of the ginger and cloves and the brightness of the orange zest come together to make this a family favorite! You can use frozen cranberries if you can't find fresh - just simmer a few minutes longer. Make this ahead of time, and save yourself some stress on the big day!

Cranberry-Orange Shortbread Cookies with Apricots

Rating: Unrated
I was searching to make the perfect citrus-y cranberry shortbread cookie, but it always felt like something was missing. So on a final attempt, when I didn't have enough dried cranberries to make a full recipe, I threw in some dried apricots and bam! That was it! They add the perfect backdrop flavor to these shortbread cookies!

Cranberry Orange Cookies

A nice thing to have around during the holidays, but don't expect them to stay around long. These orange-flavored cranberry cookies are tart and delicious, not to mention beautiful. Not really a favorite of kids.
