This is a delicious egg bread that is so soft and chewy, it reminds me a of a bread that Grandma Ruby used to make all the time. She used lots and lots of butter to keep her bread moist and chewy. While I'm still working on perfecting her recipe I keep making lots of challah bread instead.

Well the holidays are over but the baking's not done. Instead of focusing on sweets, I've gone back to basics and making more muffins and breads to keep us going through the winter. This week's offering is a apple sour cream muffin that packs a nice apple-y punch.

How'd you like them apples? I've always want to say that on here and now I can. I took an old family recipe for mango chutney and turned into an apple chutney dish, because… I could. The result - a spicy, slightly peppery apple-y mouthful of goodness that I'm definitely going to make again.

This is a cranberry sauce that packs a chunky, orangey fruity punch. I first made it for thanksgiving to accompany our turkey, however we've since been using it on chicken, duck, pork and even fish. You're only a few ingredients away from a delicious homemade cranberry sauce.

I must have been crazy when I signed up to participate in the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. I knew they're be a ton of dessert bloggers who'd blow me out of the water with their creations. Despite that I forged ahead and decided to keep it super simple with a classic sugar cookie with raspberry jam.

Every once in a while, this lil brain of mine gets overactive thinking of all possible combinations and this is one that came to me while I was making my Christmas cookies this year. I was stuffing them with raspberry jam and I thought that it'd be a great idea to use a filling more exotic - so my spicy guava jam was born.
