Hubby's At It Again . . .

Yes, but today we were BOTH in the kitchen having fun!

We had already planned on making the Cranberry Relish for our Thanksgiving Dinner at our daughter's but we also decided to make a batch of Peanut Butter Fudge ... YUMMO!!!

Feel free to use either of these recipes but PLEASE STOP BACK and let me know IF YOU DO!!  
Here ya go!

FRESH CRANBERRY RELISH


RECIPE:
1 bag (12 oz) whole cranberries
2 navel oranges
2 cups granulated sugar
Chopped Walnuts

Wash & separate cranberries, put through grinder 
(food processor or blender).
Wash oranges, quarter and remove any seeds then put thru grinder (including the skins).
Add sugar and mix thoroughly.
Add walnuts and let sit.
BEST if made a day or two in advance.

I have made a double batch so I can share with other family members and freeze some for a later date.


PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE


RECIPE:
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup milk
Boil (stirring constantly) until soft ball stage.

Remove from heat and add:
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup marshmallow creme (I used 7 oz)
2 cups creamy peanut butter (I used Skippy)

Mix well. Spread in 8x8 pan.  ENJOY!!

It's always so much fun to not only share the goodies you make over the holidays with friends & family ... but also to share the recipes.  I hope you give these a try ... I know they are a couple of my families favorites!

See you tomorrow for Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge and The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge!
Happy Crafting (and Cooking/Baking).
