New Look and Cranberry Bread


Fresh cranberries and orange are the perfect combination for a sweet and and tender bread.

Fresh cranberries and orange are the perfect combination for a sweet and and tender bread.

Look up.  Notice anything different?  I have my own domain!!  As an early Christmas present, my husband bought me http://dinnersdishesanddesserts.com!  I have been hard at work trying to learn how things work and transfer everything from blogger to here.  Somethings are giving me trouble (comments transferring), so it is still a work in progress.  If you subscribed via email before, I think you will have to do that again to still receive notifications.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend!  We had a great time just the 3 of us over the long weekend.  On Saturday we drove up into the mountains, and practiced our snowshoeing.  It was a little windy, but it was fun.  My 6 year old didn’t want to take them off, he was having so much fun!  He also wants to learn how to ski, so I think we will have a busy winter.

My 6 year old came home from school last week with a “secret” recipe for The Best Cranberry Bread.  He was adamant that we make it for Thanksgiving.  I am honestly not sure that I have ever even tried a cranberry, so I was up for trying something new.   Wednesday morning we went to the store first thing to get what we needed, and baked this bread.  I LOVED it, but my son was on the fence.  Tomorrow we are making muffins with the rest of our cranberries, so stay tuned for that.
