Holiday Cranberry Tip

Don’t let cranberry sauce/relish scare you!  It takes 10 minutes to be a “homemade gourmet” instead of popping open a can.  Buy one large bag fresh cranberries, dump them into a gallon pot, add 1 cup of sugar, and stir over medium low heat until they start to release juices and melt the sugar.  Cover the pot and reduce to low and let them go for 5 minutes.  Stir, and continue cooking without lid til reduced and thick. Serve either warm or cold!  DONE!!!!  If you want to go really crazy, dice an apple and throw it in and call it “Cranberry Apple Relish” – no need to peel; let’s not throw away the fiber!  -Lula

A Quick Baking Tip

For those of you who are not year round bakers but take it up at holiday time, you may not have parchment paper at the ready for those special recipes…a COFFEE FILTER sprayed with non-stick spray works wonderfully in your cake pans!!!  Go Baking Team, Go!!

High Praise Indeed!!!

One of the highest compliments I can receive is when a client says a taste of something brought back a pleasant memory – not to mention that when Lula says it’s authentic, it’s authentic!!!

“The bread brought back some early childhood memories.  It reminded me of when we lived in Germany back in the late 80’s.  We lived off the base in a local German town.  The local food was tremendous.  Several of them always served us lard with rye bread.  As soon as I took a biet of yours, I went back 30 years instantly to when I was 7 or 8 years old.  Thank you for that.”
