Spiced Cranberry Apple Butter

Who still has cranberries left from the holidays?  Anyone besides me?  I always stock up and freeze what I’m not going to use, because I firmly believe that cranberries aren’t just a winter fruit.  It drives me crazy that you can’t find them year round, so when I see ‘em, I buy ‘em.

Our CSA has been overly generous with our apple deliveries lately too – so much so that we haven’t been able to eat them all quickly enough.  We eat them like crazy in my house, so when found myself looking at a fruit bowl with nearly 30 Jonagolds in it, I knew it was time for a good apple recipe.

Maple Pecan Muffins

In my never-ending quest for simplicity in my weekday mornings, I always turn to easy, make-ahead meals.  Because, really – who has time to do all of the dressing, teeth-brushing, hair-brushing, backpack-packing and grumpy-kid quelling IN ADDITION TO whipping up a fancy breakfast? Not me.  It doesn’t even matter if we wake up earlier.  It’s like…
