With the holidays gone, you might be tempted to relegate cranberries to the back of the freezer or pantry. Wait! Before you do that, consider having them star in your next brunch or quick weekday breakfast on the go.
This month, I'm presenting two muffin recipes featuring the great combination of cranberries and oranges. The first recipe takes advantage of frozen cranberries and orange juice. The second presents a different kind of muffin with sweetened dried cranberries and orange marmalade. Both are great ways to start your day and both freeze exceptionally well. Take one (or more) out of the freezer, pop it in the microwave for less than a minute and you've got a warm, nutritious breakfast that's hard to beat. Put a bunch in a pretty basket, add some fresh fruit and beverages and you've got the makings of a friendly brunch setting. However you enjoy them, they're bound to become family favorites. So enjoy those cranberries -- they're not just for the holidays!
