I guess I have been taking a little bit of a break from my blog, I feel sometimes lost for words, but I have enjoyed reading a bunch of new blogs that I have found. I always feel inspired to make something I have never tried, and then I seem to fall back into the same old meals.....
We had thanksgiving a couple of weeks ago and I made this quick cranberry jam, its not super sweet and has a nice tartness to it. It would be nice with some roasted garlic on toast.YUM! The first batch of cranberries I picked up at the farmers market. Those were gone fast! On my way home several times I noticed that the elderly couple had there stand out at the end of there driveway selling cranberries so I stopped. $5.00 for a huge bag!!

There is so many things to do with cranberries, I think I am going to go the savory route next. I found some good ideas on the Martha Stewart site (I love her), this is where I got the idea to make a cranberry upside down cake, not to mention I had just read a post on Opera singer in the kitchen's blog, her gingerbread caramel pear upside down cake looks delicious! I had to adapt the Martha recipe to make it vegan. I used coconut oil instead of butter and added water, I also changed the baking powder to baking soda. I served it with coconut ice cream.
