recipe - thanksgiving cranberries

x-posted from daily_granola

Ingredients:
2 oranges
water
3/4 c. maple syrup
12 oz. cranberries (fresh or frozen)
3 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 c. Cointreau

Zest the 2 oranges with a microplane and set aside the zest. Juice both oranges and add enough water to make the liquid equal 1 cup. Boil orange juice and water together in a saucepan with maple syrup for 5 minutes. Add the cranberries and cook for about 6 minutes. Add orange zest, lemon juice, and Cointreau. Then cool it down, cover and chill in the fridge, and enjoy it cold!

Hey Germans--help with "Pizza-Fix"?

When I lived in Germany there was this great stuff called Pizza-Fix. As I recall, it was a mixture of yeast and baking powder (and probably salt and some other stuff) that you added to flour and water, and it made really great, crispy pizza crusts. They don't have it in the States, but I think it would be easy to make my own if I knew the ingredients and the nutritional break-down.

Through Google I see that Dr. Oetker makes a Pizzateig mix, but from what I can see there's no yeast in it, and I'm sure I remember that yeast is involved. Anyone happen to have a Päckchen handy or at least know what brand or brands make this stuff so I can direct my search a little better? No need to translate anything.

Potato and "Cheese" Perogies, Garlic Asparagus, and Almond Coconut Muffins.

I had garlic asparagus and potato and "cheese" perogies.. I made the perogies from scratch a long time ago and froze them but I never posted the recipe because I wanted to forget about the traumatic experience haha but the end result was totally worth it so I will post it now. I also made some almond coconut muffins for breakfasts.

These recipes are from my two favorite cook books I figured I would share since they were all so good.

oooh and the picture I included was taken with my phone so the color isnt that spectacular.
