T.R.’s Homemade Cranberry Sauce #SundaySupper

The Sunday Supper bloggers are honoring  T.R. Crumbley, a fellow blogger and friend to many, who passed away this summer. We are making some of T.R.’s recipes or creating a gluten-free recipe of our own as T.R. was a gluten-free recipe creator.

While T.R.’s site is not up anymore, his recipes are archived in the WayBack Machine- something Sue Lau, of Palatable Pastime, reminded me of- she thinks just like a librarian! As it’s name implies, the WayBack Machine has a record of old and forgotten websites. As a librarian, I have used it a ton, to find old sites that just disappear. Sue, reminded us of the Wayback as a place to find T.R.’s recipes and I am so glad that I can honor him in this way and make a recipe directly from his own recipe collection. This is an exact copy by T.R.:

Homemade Cranberry Sauce
POSTED ON NOVEMBER 27, 2010, UPDATED ON MAY 7, 2016 BY T.R. CRUMBLEY

Not for the diabetic

You’ll need:
– 1 cup sugar
– 1 cup Orange Juice
– 16 oz organic cranberries
– 1/4 cup dry white wine
– whisk
– pot with lid
– potato masher

Directions:
– Whisk together sugar and oj and bring to a boil on medium.
– Add cranberries and let boil until cranberries have popped
– Mash cranberries and add wine.
– Keep stirring for about 5, let stand to thicken and serve.

This is exactly how I did it, except I used non-organic cranberries. Just perfect. I love cranberry sauce – especially after Thanksgiving on my favorite sandwich, loaded with turkey and stuffing, and this yummy sauce- so good! This sauce is a 4-ingredient, 10 minute wonder…Thanks T.R.~

Here it is in my own words, and printable for you- worth making for sure!

Cranberry Sauce

“Knowing” someone only virtually, is a strange thing. I never got to meet T.R. face to face- but I chatted with him regularly…on Twitter in our Sunday Supper chats. Appropriately, this week is the last twiiter-chat for SundaySupper bloggers as we will no longer be chatting there on Sunday nights. The sun-downing of that social interaction, will hopefully bring new things to light, and hopefully T.R. would be honored by this. I am glad to have had the opportunity to “know” you a bit, T.R. Rest in peace~ For more recipes that honor T.R. and his gluten-free recipe legacy, check out the rest of the SundaySupper bloggers:

Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bites

Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bites #SundaySupper

Need a 10 minute dish to bring to your Halloween party using just 4 ingredients? This little “recipe”  for Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bites is your new fun dessert to bring, that both kids and adults will devour!

I know this of course, since it is VERY difficult to get these out the door without popping at least a couple in my mouth- they are finger food!

Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bites

There really is no “recipe” for this- it’s just buying some things at the store and making this in about 5 minutes- the hardest part is unwrapping the  chocolates!


Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bites

Ingredients:

One bag of square shaped (waffled) pretzels
1 large bag of chocolate covered caramel candy (I used Hershey Rolo®s)
1 small bag of candy corn
coarse salt for sprinkling

Here’s what to do:

  • Preheat the oven to 350*.
  • Line a rimmed baking pan with parchment.
  • Place pretzels in a single layer all over the pan.
  • Place an unwrapped Rolo in the center of each pretzel.

Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bites

  • Bake for 5 minutes- you want them soft, not melted!
  • Take the pan out of the oven and quickly press one candy-corn in the center of each Rolo, pressing down to squish it a bit.
  • Sprinkle the whole pan with coarse salt.
  • Set up in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes.
  • Serve!

Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bites

I love these little bites because they are SO easy to make- Of course if it is not Halloween, you can press a little M&M on top instead of a candy corn, in the color the holiday represents: blue and white for Hannukah, red and green for Christmas, pink or red for Valentines….so easy.

Spinach Stuffed Shells #SundaySupper

Now say that 5-times, fast! Spinach Stuffed Shells #Sunday Supper, Spinach Stuffed Shells #Sunday Supper, …I didn’t even plan that, I swear!

I make these Spinach Stuffed Shells, ever since we received stuffed shells from a friend, while we were going through some tough times. I had a 4 and 3 year old, and was pregnant with twins. My husband had just had open-heart surgery. It right before Christmas, and was, to say the least, a very busy and difficult time. At the time, it felt like the greatest gift to receive a meal that was already made. Something that was at once easy but also comforting and delicious- a true kindness. I had never made stuffed shells before, but to me, they were the best thing I’d ever eaten. I honestly believe that food truly can be one of the easiest ways to show someone you care. Every time I make these, I remember the wonderful gift that was given to me, with such a simple gesture.

Anyhoo….this week’s theme for #SundaySupper is comfort-food, pasta meals. This is mine for obvious reasons. Enjoy.

Spinach Stuffed Shells

Ingredients:

1 box(12oz) jumbo shells
1 1/2 cups of your favorite marinara sauce
1 large container ricotta cheese
1 egg
1 bag (8oz) of mozzarella cheese, split in two portions
1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese
4 Tbsp. parsley
1 package frozen spinach, thawed
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground black pepper

What to do:

  • Preheat oven to 350*. Spray a 9X13 pan with non-stick spray.Pour one cup of the sauce onto the bottom of the pan in an even layer. Set this aside.
  • Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain, and set aside.
  • Mix together the ricotta, egg, half the mozzarella, parmesan, parsley, spinach, salt and pepper.  Using a rubber spatula, scrape this mixture into a large ziplock bag. Press into the corner, and cut the tip of the bag, so the mixture can press out.
  • Fill each cooked shell with the mixture, pressing it through the bag. Place each shell on the pan with the sauce, until the shells are one layer and fill the pan. Drizzle the half-cup of sauce over the shells.

Spinach Stuffed Shells


This is a great meal to make and bring to someone who has a family or needs a dinner made for them during a busy or hard time. You can double it and make 2- one for you and one for a friend…They will be so grateful for it!  Being a vegetarian meal you don’t have to worry if there is that dietary restriction. I make pasta all the time for our family in the winter- it is easy, fast and usually my kids will try it! If you’d like a load more of easy, comfort meals to make, check us out:
