My thoughts have been consumed with cranberries. This Cranberry Almond Christmas Cake is exactly what I need to cure my craving. The recipe is easy and comes together in a snap.
All of my social media networks have been flooded with fall flavors and I tell you cranberries have been screaming at me. After seeing this cranberry cake on my friend Mary's blog and Taste of Home I had finally had enough. I had to try it!

With a love of Strabucks Cranberry Bliss Bars it was only a matter of time before that inspiration carried over to another treat. These are the epitome of the cranberry bliss bar perfectly packaged in a crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside cookie.
After eating these by the handful I decided it was best to freeze them and keep them out of my sight. You know they say out of sight out of mind. Sadly, that doesn't always work. So now I have started a whole new method to keep from eating them all.

If you have ever been to Starbucks in the fall or winter I am sure you have at seen these spectacular treats, if not devoured one or twenty. Cranberry Bliss Bars are perfectly named they are pure dessert bliss packed into a little bar.
Munchkin and I had so much fun making these bars. My 3year old has been promoted to chief egg cracker. Over the summer we ate a lot of scrambled eggs and omelets so I would plop a dozen eggs on the counter and let her practice. Well, I have to tell you after a few dozen, she cracks eggs better than any kid I have ever met and even better than some adults. I still have to teach her

My Munchkin (now approaching 3 years old) loves her snacks and desserts. Finding something new and exciting to meet her ever evolving picky palate is a challenge. But, one that is fun and exciting to meet!

My munchkins new favorite 'cookies' are these Spiced Cranberry Banana Cookie Cake Bites! Soft and chewy, they are naturally sweet, moist and so healthy. I was quite surprised that my sugar princess enjoyed these so much. But, then again I love them too!

Store bought snacks are just not cutting it these days. We are really enjoying healthy homemade snacks and breakfasts. My munchkin loves this granola for breakfast and I love feeding it to her. A real wholesome breakfast 'cereal'.
Loaded with fruit, nuts, cinnamon and honey; most times I can hardly get the granola packed up and into a mason jar before its gone. We all love this as a sweet treat too. Perfect to top yogurt, ice cream or eat alone. We can't get enough and I am sure you will love it too!

Happy Tuesday, it is Simply Delicious here at The Slow Roasted Italian. Every Tuesday we feature dishes that are easy and quick to make, but pack some serious flavor. Today we feature the Cranberry Walnut Baked Oatmeal. Cooler days certainly inspired this recipe, although we are warming back up.
