Cranberry orange loaf is a easy to make festive treat to have around the holidays. Filled with fresh cranberries and orange zest it is fresh and fruity. Try pairing the loaf with your favourite tea or eggnog.
Fresh tomatillo salsa is great on corn chips, baked potatoes or other vegetables. It whips up in less than 20 minutes and is better than the store bought versions. Adjust the sugar to the level of acidity you prefer.
When November rolls around I start baking cookies to put in the freezer for Christmas. Raspberry Almond Swirl Cookies freeze well and are delicious. They’re pretty on a Christmas platter or tasty just for tea time. For a different flavour cranberry jam or marmalade can be substituted for the raspberry.
I don’t often eat cereal for breakfast but when I do I tend to eat granola. This granola recipe includes coconut oil, honey and dried apricots. For a surprise cocoa nibs are added for a chocolatey kick. Enjoy morning granola for breakfast or on top of your favourite crumble.
Lemon is one of my favourite flavours. Zingy lemon muffins are full of the taste and smell of lemon and citrus. They’re great for a treat any time of year and are especially good with strawberry jam. Try baking mini muffins for take a long treats.
Easy banana bread has many uses. Sliced with peanut butter and a few banana slices it makes a great breakfast. Use in bread pudding or toast cubes to make croutons for fruit salad. Don’t forget to have a slice on its own. It’s delicious!
Freezer Biscuits are ideal for those times when you want something light but don’t want to cook. The dough is made and frozen for the future and then simply placed on a cookie sheet and cooked in the oven.
