Hello November! Fall is here, the holidays are approaching fast and it’s time to start planning for Thanksgiving. Throughout the month we will feature planning tips to help you with your Thanksgiving meal, product reviews and recipe ideas for left over Thanksgiving food.
As usual we will have our Taste Test Tuesday reviews, Kitchen Tip Thursdays and some family food fun. We may even have a little home decor treat for you.
Here is a recipe that I don’t get to make much. But I still love it. Great idea for Thanksgiving morning or the day after (use left over cranberry sauce) Coffee Cake and a cup of fresh coffee before you hit those Black Friday Sales!!
Cranberry Coffee Cake
Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 55 Minutes
1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream
1 (8 ounce) can whole cranberry sauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour one 9 or 10 inch tube pan.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the almond extract. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture alternately with the sour cream.
Pour 1/3 of the batter into the prepared tube pan. Swirl 1/2 of the cranberry sauce into the batter. Repeat, ending with the batter on top.
Bake 55 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown.
We made it to September. Fall is on it’s way and it’s time to say goodbye to summer. I am so not ready for this. I love the summer time, my bones love the summer too. Now it’s time for me to bring out all of my fall recipes and start planning for the holidays. Be sure to stick around as we begin to cook and bake. Here are some things we will talk about this month:
As you may have noticed a lot of people are talking about green smoothies and adding them to their daily regimen. How about you? Have you tried any green smoothie recipes lately?
We’ve tried different recipes for green smoothies and we love them. This one here has a cup of frozen mixed fruit (peaches, mangoes, strawberries), one banana, one cup of apple juice and a handful of spinach.
Over the next few weeks we will be sharing with you various green smoothie recipes and the benefits of drinking them. Are you ready to try a green smoothie? Do you have a combination you would like us to try? Leave us a comment and let us know.
