I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Orange Cranberry Sauce

Gotta have cranberry sauce with turkey! And this one is easy to make. The orange zest gives it a little zing. Want more orange flavour? Just change up the water for orange juice.

1/2 cup water
1 cup sugar
1/2 lb fresh or frozen cranberries
Zest of 1 orange

Combine the water and sugar in a saucepan. Add the cranberries and orange zest and bring to a boil.
Once it comes to a boil reduce heat and simmer over medium heat, stirring until cranberries start to crack open. You'll notice the sauce start to thicken. 

Remove from heat, cool and refrigerate.
Makes about 1  1/2 cups
Simply isn't Thanksgiving or Christmas without it.
