TWD - Cheese Puffers

  This week in Baking with Dorie I chose cheese puffers.  With the busy holidays upon us, these were perfect to add to our weeknight dinner.  They were quick and very easy to make.  While having the appearance of an ordinary muffin, these were light and cheesy….more like a popover.  We loved them and will definitely make again. Hope you all had a lovely holiday.  Happy New Year! You can find this recipe in Dorie Greenspan’s latest book, Sweet, Salty, Simple or  Here

GFGF - cranberry Orange Walnut bread

This week in our Good Friends Good Food group our theme was Season of Blessings which gave us a choice.  I chose to make a holiday bread using the fresh cranberries that were included in my vege coop this week.  The recipe I used is below. The recipe made two loaves so I took one to a friend and kept the other for us to enjoy.  It is an easy recipe except chopping those cranberries proved a challenge.  I did it by hand and they kept rolling off the cutting board.  Quite amusing!  This seemed like a pretty bread for the holidays!  We love anything cranberry .

Baking with Dorie - Mokonut’s Rye Cranberry Chocolate Chunk Cookies

In our BWD group this week, I chose to make the Mokonut cookies.  I had never used rye flour before so this was a first for me.  The problem was finding it in stock.  I think I visited five or six local grocery stores before finding it.  Sprouts had one bag left and I got it! These cookies were easy to make and with the holidays upon us, I am really into making cookies.  These did not disappoint!  My husband and I loved them!  The cranberries, the chocolate and the rye flour came together to make one awesome cookie!  The rye flour gives a bit of nutty taste.  Winner for us!  I am now obsessed with these cookies!   Out of respect for the author, we do not publish recipes in this group.  We encourage you to buy the book and join our group.  Or, you can find the recipe here   If you would like to join in, just make it, bake it, and leave a link to your post at the  Tuesdays with Dorie  website:   click here

Good Friends Good Food - Butternut Squash, Apple, Cranberry Bake

  This week in our GFGF group the theme was something you might add to your holiday table.  I wanted to do something with squash because I pretty much love all things squash.  This is a very simple recipe. The hardest part is cutting up the butternut squash.  But believe me it is worth it!   This dish is delicious and beautiful.  It would definitely be welcome at a holiday table or just for a weekly dinner. I served it with baked pork chops and asparagus.  Beautiful and delicious.  I might cut down on the sugar when I make it again.  The apples are naturally sweet and probably half the sugar would be enough.
