This isn't my actual photo! The sauce didn't set in time. :(

This is a wonderful garnish for turkey, or whatever fowl you choose to eat for dinner. Tasty, easy to make, and scratch is always better than canned. ;)

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (200 g) sugar
  • 1 cup (250 mL) water
  • 4 cups (1 12-oz package) fresh or frozen cranberries
  • Optional Pecans, orange peel, raisins, currants, blueberries, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice.

1 Wash and pick over cranberries. In a saucepan bring to a boil water and sugar, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add cranberries, return to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer for 10 minutes or until cranberries burst.

2 At this point you can add all number of optional ingredients. We typically mix in a half a cup of roughly chopped pecans with or without a few strips of orange peel. You can add a cup of raisins or currants. You can add up to a pint of fresh or frozen blueberries for added sweetness. Spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg or allspice can be added too.

3 Remove from heat. Cool completely at room temperature and then chill in refrigerator. Cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools.

Cranberry sauce base makes 2 1/4 cups.

This recipe was handed to me from the lead goat, Pixelated Executioner, courtesy of Nihilistic of the Dragonblight server. I merely volunteered to make them. These cookies are delicious, and I only changed two things – one, cook them a bit longer than 10-12 minutes – I found that baking closer to 15 minutes made a better cookie. Also, I didn’t find anything like ‘caramel chips’ around here, so I just used Skor chips, and I am glad I did!

On that note, seriously, I would recommend having a stronger stomach for most of the ‘cuisine’ around the Tirisfal area…the Forsaken are quite nice, just…they’re opinion of good food is a bit different than us living folk. :)

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Shortening
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Cup Pumpkin Pie Mix
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • ½  tsp Salt
  • 1 Bag Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Bag Caramel Chips

1. Pre-Heat your oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a mixing bowl combine 1 Cup of Shortening with 1 Cup of Sugar and blend until light and fluffy. When that is ready, blend in 1 Cup of Pumpkin Pie Mix, and 1 whole egg, mix well. Add in 2 Cups of Flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp Cinnamon, and ½ tsp of Salt and blend the mixture until it is smooth.

3. At this point, the desired “chippage” is up to each maker, but combine equal parts chocolate & caramel chips into the cookie dough.

4.  Take about a tablespoon sized dollup of the dough, and ball up onto a cookie sheet. Bake them for 10-12 minutes and then let rest on a flat cooling surface. Don’t use a wire rack for cooling as the caramel and chocolate tend to become very liquefied and make the cookies fall apart between the spaces.

Enjoy!

I actually stumbled across this wonderfully spicy and soothing drink in a neutral goblin inn. It’s delicious, easy to make, and best of all, delicious!
