{ five-spice cranberries three ways }


five-spice cranberries cranberries + cocktails + appetizer I like a recipe that will serve multiple purposes. For instance, when I make tri-tip, you can always expect beef tacos the next day. And if it was an especially big tri-tip, than I will roll it into chili and I’ve got three meals under my belt. Boom. These cranberries are just like that. First, they’re a…
