Butternut Squash Lasagna

If I were to be one hundred percent transparent right now eating a salad mid-winter is as much fun for me as a trip to the dentist.

Cranberry Orange Crumb Bars

I’m sharing my current favorite sweet treat just in time for the holiday season, cranberry orange crumb bars, or as Emerson calls them “cobby ahjoo pum bars”.

Cranberry Sauce

If there’s something every Thanksgiving table needs it’s cranberry sauce! What better addition to your turkey than the tart perfection that it is that little red berry. Contrary to what you may think it’s actually quite easy to make, too! This simple, clean recipe uses just three simple ingredients and is ready in 20 minutes!

This recipe also makes the perfect topping for my Cranberry Turkey Meatloaf and as the perfect tart layer for my Cranberry Orange Crumb Bars!

Helpful tips:

  • You can use fresh or frozen whole cranberries for this recipe. Note, that if using frozen you’ll have to simmer for a few additional minutes.
  • If your need a little more sweet rather than tart you can adjust the amount of maple syrup. However I suggest adding by the tablespoon until you reach your desired taste.
  • If you like a bit chunkier sauce only mash about half of the berries. Leaving some while gives this sauce a great texture and a more “homemade” appeal!
  • For a larger ground simply double the recipe!
