Cranberry Apple Cobbler

We have really been enjoying fresh cranberries around here since Thanksgiving time.  I learned my lesson last year that after Christmas they become hard to find in the store and disappear quickly, only to return to the shelves the next year around the end of October/early November.  So, this year I bought some extra bags and put them in the freezer so we could enjoy them for a little while longer :).

I wanted to find something new to make other than cranberry sauce and cranberry bars (both of which are very tasty, just didn’t want to get burnt out on them!), so when I found this recipe I bookmarked it pretty quickly to try for the next week after my grocery run.  It is a nice combination of sweet and tart, and I bet it would be a good “comfort food” for the cold winter days that will soon come!

Raw Chocolate Raspberry “Brownies”

I went looking for some new dessert recipes again, and since berries are coming into season, I decided to make this one (also because the picture on the website looked so pretty!)  🙂  I didn’t feel like firing up the oven last weekend, so it was nice to have several no-bake options to choose from, where you can do a lot of the work with the food processor and then just put it in the fridge/freezer.  Like a lot of the new recipes we’ve tried, you have to get used to its texture, but once you taste the chocolate and raspberry mix it takes your mind off of the texture.
