Honey & Champagne Cranberry Sauce

by Lauren

Here it is, that Thanksgiving recipe I promised. It involves champagne. You know you’ll have a bottle of that open on Thanksgiving morning. If you can spare a cup, swap it for the water in your classic cranberry sauce and try this out.

I think a handful of chopped walnuts would also be fantastic in this.

bread

Not only had I yet to use my brand new loaf pan but I’ve also been dying to make pumpkin bread. I finally had the time last weekend and after brainstorming a variety of flavor combinations for the recipe, I came up with this one. Maple and pumpkin, a match made in heaven.

And yet again I discover…I do not truly enjoy the process of baking. Although I enjoy the result of baking enough to struggle with it and fulfill my cravings.

Bran muffins have been on the mind for quite some time, and I finally built enough confidence to whip some up.

I love, love, love bran muffins but do not love raisins. I shamelessly eat around them in just about every trail mix (and bran muffin), going straight for the chocolate … Read more...

Cranberry Coconut & Almond Oatmeal

by Lauren

We aren’t the type to buy prepackaged oatmeal. In case you are unaware, it’s loaded with sugar and fake flavoring. Pretty please skip that section at the grocery store and make your own batch starting today!

It takes just a couple seconds more to make your own. You can even make multiple servings in a large batch and simply dish up your desired amount each morning.
