5-Minute Recipe for Fresh Cranberries

If you’re making a Thanksgiving turkey dinner, try making fresh cranberries this year. This recipe is as simple as it gets and it takes about five minutes. Check the ingredients in the canned stuff – it has high fructose corn syrup and …isn’t it really cranberry flavored jello? Make the real deal and you’ll get all the health benefits too.

It makes an impressive bring-along if you want to impress your mother-in-law. She will love this dish but she’ll still think you’re not good enough for her baby! Oh well…

I made granola bars!

I tried making granola bars a few years ago and they were, let’s just say… a little crisp. It took some effort to actually bite into them but there was no way to determine if the extreme crunch was the bar or one of my teeth. So I gave up, but only for a while because I am not a quitter. I challenged myself to make a healthy, crunchy, chewy granola bar that wouldn’t double as a tire iron. I did it. It took a few tries but I finally came up with this easy recipe and you can customize it a bunch of different ways with different nuts, dried fruit, even chocolate chips. I use the mini chocolate chips but Denis always wants the big ones. Maybe when the garage gets cleaned out…
