Cranberry Christmas Cake

It feels weird posting a cake with a Christmasy title in May, but here we are.  Many people think of cranberries as a seasonal, holiday time ingredient, but I refuse to accept that.  As the season for fresh cranberries ends, you will find me in the grocery store, taking full advantage of the sale prices… Continue reading Cranberry Christmas Cake

Eggnog French Toast

Today, I’m posting a breakfast food that I make for my kids alllll the time, but “Christmas-ified” You know that scene in Love Actually where Billy Mack says “Yes… but we changed the word ‘love’ to ‘Christmas…”  Basically, I just change my french toast recipe to include eggnog instead of milk.  I’m very clever.
