Cranberries are the under-appreciated fruit of fall and winter.
We’re in the long slog part of winter. The holiday season is far behind us, and spring in Chicago is still months away.
This is, for me, the toughest time of year. I get stir crazy.
Here, have a cranberry Dutch baby.
I love a good oven pancake for breakfast. The most common versions involve apples. And those are lovely.
But sometimes you want to branch out.
January is always the toughest month for me for cooking. There’s a post-holiday malaise that hangs over the kitchen.
This cake is a beauty.
It’s worthy of a special occasion.
