Maple-Cranberry Syrup Recipe – Plus Batch Cooking Plan (and my Thanksgiving Plan)

I figure…while I’m in the kitchen this week, I might as well double up on some things…like pancakes and cookie dough. But before we get to the doubling and the batch cooking, let’s chat for a minute about the really important part of this week’s kitchen activity.  Thanksgiving sides and desserts.

My mother-in-law is hosting the feast this year…so I’ll be bringing sides and a pie.  Here’s what I’ll be hauling over.

Well, maybe not hauling. She lives just down the road. And none of these dishes are real heavy! 😉
