For the Love of Cranberry Sauce

I need a post just to talk about my favorite Thanksgiving food: cranberry sauce.  Yes, I know what you are thinking.  Cranberry sauce is your favorite?  It’s not even a real side dish.  It is like the side dish to the side dish.  I’m telling you it is the best though. Cranberry sauce is so versatile.  Not…

Lofthouse-Style Frosted Cookies

I came across this recipe a couple weeks ago when I was looking for ways to use up egg whites.  I had been using a bunch of egg yolks when I made ice cream and gluten free pasta dough, and I didn’t want to waste all these egg whites.  I wanted to make something exciting,…
