Why not start your day with something a tad indulgent? Tangy cranberries and tart apples (or sweet, if you prefer) add loads of flavor to this fluffy pancake. It’s great for using up cranberries from holiday cooking, too.
Most will agree that cranberry sauce is a Thanksgiving necessity. Sure, you could buy it canned, but why not try making it yourself this year? Try this simple recipe if you do; it has a perfect balance of sweet and tart.
In this recipe, exotic spices take the place of all that sugar that’s usually added to cranberry recipes, without overwhelming the rest of the meal. It’s heavenly on a sandwich of leftover sliced turkey!
