Fresh Cranberry Bread.

A thick slice of moist fresh cranberry bread, bursting with tart berries, and slathered with butter.

Moist, sweet, tender bread stuffed full of bright, tart cranberries – this is the most festive little loaf! Who wouldn’t want a slice for breakfast? Or a snack? Or as a bribe to make your children eat fun dinner component? I love holiday baking, but so many of my favorites require individual rolling of cookies (like gingersnaps), or individual rolling plus not-one-but-two powdered sugar dustings (see Russian tea cookies) or individual rolling plus a melted chocolate dunk (see cookie dough truffles) <–all 100%, utterly worth the effort, btw. I’m thrilled to add something to the lineup that you can stir with a whisk and even make ahead and freeze! Fresh cranberry bread would make a great gift for neighbors or friends, too.

And then you slather it with honey butter with a hint of salt and sweet-salty-soft-crusty magic happens. Continue reading “Crusty No-Knead Bread (with salty honey butter).”

I love it so much that I usually want to have the same exact meal in the same exact proportions a second night. Also: open-faced turkey and gravy sandwiches. Also: all of the pie.

Cheesy Squash Casserole.

This is not a casserole blog. I’m not a casserole person. But I love this squash casserole. So it’s not exactly representative of what I typically cook, but after toying with the idea of having a food blog for…years…for some reason, this was the day. Because, you know, nothing screams “take on a new project!” like having a 10-week-old baby. Continue reading “Cheesy Squash Casserole.”
