This post was going to go up the morning after Christmas so you would have something wonderful to do with your leftover cranberry sauce. Then, I got sick Christmas morning and have been sick ever since. Feeling a tad bit better, but I just wanted to get this up in case anyone still has left over cranberry sauce and has no idea what to do with it.

But, since I got sick (aka gluten-ed), this post will not have its normal long-winded witty intro. Instead, I will get right to the recipe and hope you enjoy it. We sure enjoyed the efforts of the numerous times I tried to get this recipe right between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

      Thanks, Heather! I appreciate it. Still recovering. Who knew it would take so long. It will make me that much more diligent, though. I hope you enjoy the recipe. My boys certainly did.

      Hi Alisa,

      I am so into the grain-free if I can swing it. I just feel better that way. Let me know how it works for you. I always wonder it I am translating the recipe well. I’m not used to this recipe making thing.


  2. What a great way to use up leftover cranberry sauce! Hope you’re feeling better now… I sent some link love your way, as well as some healthy vibes to get the gluten out!

      Hi Iris,

      Thanks! I am still working on recovering. This one is crazy. It gets worse each time. Ugh! And, thank you for the link love and healthy vibes. The good thing is that I can’t think of eating sugar right now, so the Big Man is eating it all for me. He can afford it more than I can. 😉


  3. Love these muffins, Tia! What a great idea!! I love the flavor of cranberries in baked goods! Will definitely have to try these out! I am so sad that you missed out on Christmas with Max ;(. But glad you are up and around now! Take care of yourself. Did you call the restaurant to let them know what happened? I have done that in the past. I know Heidi has too. Thinking of you! xoxo
    PS That pic of your little helper is ADORABLE!! xoxo

      Hi Kim,

      You know, I didn’t think about calling the restaurant, and I found out my FIL was really sick about the same time I was. So, now I’m not so sure. It felt like my normal gluten-ed but just a lot worse and longer. So, maybe I was just sick. I just don’t remember being that sick ever before.

      I just had to include that picture of the Little Man. He is obsessed with making stuff in the kitchen. His cookies are fabulous.

      I just realized I’m about a week late in replying. Better late than never. 😉
