The Lloyd hunting party did not get a deer last weekend, Maggie and I were mighty happy when the man of our house returned safe and sound. We just got word that our fourteen-year-old granddaughter Taylor got her second deer of the season today. I guess she is turning out to be the hunter of the family! I can live without venison, although we do eat jerky, sausage and I can tell no difference if I use ground venison in chili.
This time of the year I am always browsing through my recipe file looking for holiday recipes that use ingredients that remind me of the holidays, such is the one I am sharing with you this week, I have no idea who gave it to me, its easy to make and the muffins are best served warm.
Mix together in a small bowl, 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries, halved with 1/2 cup sugar and 1 tsp. grated orange rind, set aside.
Whisk together in a large bowl: 1 egg, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup orange juice and 1 tsp. canola oil. To this stir in 2 cups Bisquick, stir just until moistened, then fold in cranberry mixture. Divide muffin mixture between 12 greased muffin tins, Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.
Have a great week!
I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
