Cranberry Nut Mold

I didn't forget you...but I did forget the name of my Grandmother's's actually her Cranberry Nut Mold and I hope that you will try it! It's tradition in our home and easy to make. The recipe is below.

Cranberry Nut Mold

1 bag (12 ounces) cranberries
1/2 cup sugar
2 pkg. 4 serving size or 1 pkg.- 8 serving size of orange Jello gelatin
1 1/2 cup boiling water
1/2 cup cold water
1/2 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans)
1 apple
1 whole orange

Chop crannberries, orange, apple and nuts throw all ingredients in a jello mold, place in the refrigerator till firm.

I make this the night before Thanksgiving. I begin with the nuts throwing them in my food processor till they are chopped very small like grains. I clear that out putting them aside and add my cranberries to the food processor. Next I slice the apple first then put that in my machine. The last thing I chop is the orange and I include the peel.

I hope that you will enjoy !

While looking for my grandmother's Cranberry Nut Mold I found a picture of our turkey from last years Thanksgiving meal. I thought you might want to see what it looks like...I just can't wait now after seeing this.

You can get the recipe below from clicking on the link I posted is simply delicious.

How are you setting your table?

A quick hello this busy busy time of year.

I hope all of you are in good health and looking forward to Thanksgiving with your family and friends. With the help of Jennifer we will be cooking our meal.

How do you cook your turkey? I'm curious to know....

I use a brine the night before and I'm telling you it makes the BeSt tasting turkey I ever had. I watched Emeril prepare it on the food network a couple of years ago and ever since we are hooked.

Here's a link to Emeril's Brined and Roasted Turkey If you want a new recipe to try.

And to help you set your table I want to share with you my Thanksgiving place setting cards.
They are waiting for you to download in our hurry they will be there for at least the next 24 hrs.

Come back tomorrow I want to share with you a very special recipe created by our Jewish Grandmother Louise, who is 90 years young. It's her Cranberry Orange Jello mold. I will dig up her recipe tomorrow morning, it's to die for! I do have a picture from last year of her mold that I can share, we love it so much I'm wanting to scrap a page on it so of course I took a picture. I'll have to look for that too and I can't wait to introduce you to the most wonderful person in my life...that's Louise.

Have a nice day!

Where has Carrie been?

I am finally, feeling good...YEAH! Still coughing but feeling like I'm going to make it! Today I brought our fourth family member to the doctor, Kristen and she is the only one who wasn't diagnosed with the pneumonia that was sick.

Our pediatrician and staff felt so sorry for us! She looked in Julie's files at our first visit with her and that was back on October 12th. I missed out on so much....visiting the pumpkin patch with the family, Scott took all the kids so I could sleep. Then I missed out on trick or treating. I did make them take my camera! So I do have pictures to share and will have them at the end of my post here.

I just looked at the Paperthreads newsletter it is totally AWESOME!!!!!! I hope you have signed up for it! Every month it will be issued with articles to help you in using your machines to scrapbooking techniques! Free files before they are released for you to download. And much more I can't tell! So sign up now if you haven't done so lately. Here's the link NEWSLETTER.
If you were signed up for it before the switch to the new server you need to sign up again because those emails were lost. Believe me a few moments of your time will be well worth don't delay!

Now, my yahoo group...This group was created mainly to distribute free files and make announcements on my upcoming classes. I don't see that I will open up the group for sharing other information since we do have the forum at Paperthreads to learn from and share your creative files there. Now that I am feeling better I will be putting more files up for you to download starting tomorrow, Novemeber 13th.

Here are some of our little trick or treaters...and big ones! Jason came over with Brian's help and took the little ones out for us...aren't they sweet! I just love my boys!
