Can we agree that we’re all Thanksgiving-ed out? If you don’t celebrate it, you’re like, “Shut up with your dumb national holiday already! And PS those Pilgrim hats look stupid.” And if you do celebrate it, you’re like, “I have 647 things to buy at five different grocery stores today and a whole house to…

Cranberry White Chocolate Sweetie Pies | From SugarHero.com

My dad was the pie master in my family growing up. For a large man, he sure had the delicate touch with pie dough, and his crusts were always a buttery, flaky delight. After pressing the dough into the pans, he would roll the scraps of dough into “sweetie pies,” our name for little hand…

Me? I’m doing all of the above, and finishing it off with a bit of cranberry orange bread pudding, made with leftover Thanksgiving rolls and cranberry sauce. Three cheers for holiday…

TWD: Cranberry-Lime Galette

For many of us, the capital-H Holidays are approaching, and I don’t know about you, but I feel like I’ve already been run over by a festive seasonal truck and it’s barely mid-November. The last few months I’ve felt like Wile E. Coyote frantically churning my legs in midair, trying to run across the sky…

TWD: Cranberry Shortbread Cake

Yesterday afternoon, as I was spoiling my husband’s dinner by force-feeding him cranberry cake and whipped cream, he looked me in the eyes and said, with great feeling, “Miy WOUFF Troiusdapes miff Rorfty!” Fortunately, we have been married long enough that I’m able to translate Full Mouth into English, and knew that he was saying…
