Apple Cranberry Relish

Hello Apple Cranberry Relish! We picked up $1.99 bag of cranberries last night because I figured it’s never too early to master a new clean cranberry recipe for the holidays.

But really – I’m okay – I promise! I was sipping on an …

Creamy Fruits of Love Smoothie

I just put a rhubarb crisp in the oven, basically for Jeremy, because I just started my smoothie feast. How does that happen? It happens because we went to the farmer’s market yesterday and finally picked up some rhubarb that he has been pining after. I think I’ll have to freeze some of the cobbler/crisp …
