CRANBERRIES FOUR DIFFERENT WAYS

easy cranberry sauce

Cranberry’s signal the start of the holiday’s. I serve them continuously throughout the season with leftovers, drinks,  sandwiches, side dishes, and desserts!

I buy many bags of fresh Cranberry’s while they are available at the market and freeze them. They are seasonal, and you can’t get fresh Cranberries in the spring or summer. That’s when having my stash of frozen Cranberries comes in handy. They can stay in your freezer for up to 9 months! I use fresh Cranberry’s all year long. Read more »

 CORN CHOWDER

CORN CHOWDER

Perfect summer time meal, chilled corn chowder served with a simple salad on the side. My favorite salad to serve with this soup is butter lettuce with extra virgin olive oil, and fresh lemon seasoned with kosher salt and cracked pepper! Simple, clean and satisfying!

This soup can also be served piping hot for the cool fall and winter months. You can still have that summer time flavor by using organic frozen corn. Read more »
