Mini Cranberry Sauce Cobblers

When it comes to repurposing, I love to find new uses for some things. Others, like clothes and my husband’s tools I see no use for, I’m fine letting go of. Call me sentimental, but I can’t just chuck a good cranberry sauce! It’s one of my favorite parts of the traditional turkey dinner. However, we always end up with leftovers.

So, why not turn something good into something great? Mini cobblers have been my longtime go-to dessert for everything from a fancy dinner to kicking back on the couch. They are such a simple way to use whatever berries you have on hand – strawberries, blueberries, raspberries… and even cranberries! Or, in this case, a cranberry sauce or relish.

Homemade Breakfast Hostess Gift

Roasted Butternut Squash and Brussels Sprouts with Cranberries, Apples and Onions

1

Even if it’s only the two of us at the Thanksgiving table (which it might be this year), I tend to go overboard on the side dishes. My challenge has always been trying to fit in a little bit of everything. Something green. Something oniony. Something with cranberries. Something butternut squashy. Instead of...

Soft Cinnamon Swirl Bread

1

Last Friday, I woke up feeling terrible. I tumbled out of bed at 4am and, ignoring my sleepy, sick feeling, worked on my laptop until the sun rose. I couldn’t shut my mind off. And it really came to bite me when it was time to approach the...

Quick & Easy Cranberry Orange Relish

When trying to pick a favorite Thanksgiving dish, I find it impossible to avoid considering the meal as a whole. Yes, I’m the one who stacks a bit of everything on her fork – turkey, mashed potatoes, butternut squash… and the cherry on top. Which I consider to...

Cinnamon-Sugar Spiced Pumpkin Pie Donuts

  When I was growing up, we had a Sunday donut tradition. The friends I had staying for a sleepover would come thundering downstairs with the anticipation of fresh, warm donuts. It was an unspoken rule who got the glazed, who got sprinkles, and so...

Cheesy Skillet Pizza Pasta

Best Ever Sausage, Sage and Apple Stuffing
