This pomegranate smoothie is so delicious and refreshing! Plus, it’s healthy, gluten free and vegan!
Hi, Gang! I’m back after a much-needed holiday break and am excited to share my latest creation with you. I’m in love with this pomegranate smoothie with banana and walnuts, and have the purple stains on my teeth to prove it.
Would you believe I’ve never used pomegranate arils (the juicy seeds) as an ingredient? I’ve used pomegranate vodka in my Pasta alla Pomegranate Vodka with Bacon (you must try it!), but that’s about it. I usually just sit near my hubby as he scoops out pomegranate arils after dinner, waiting for him to toss some my way. (We don’t have a dog.)…
Cranberry Pie with Sugar Cookie Crust is the holiday pie of my dreams!
I’m absolutely giddy about sharing this recipe with you. If you cringe at the idea of tart cranberry sauce on Thanksgiving but would rather not serve that sweet, jiggly stuff in the can, I’ve created the perfect solution: cranberry pie with sugar cookie crust. All from scratch. With homemade whipped cream. Or maybe vanilla ice cream. Yesss!
If you’ve been reading Cooking with Mamma C awhile, this pie might sound familiar. That’s because I modeled it after this beloved Blueberry Pie with Sugar Cookie Crust, a huge family favorite I’ve been making for years. This time, I replaced the blueberries with fresh, tart cranberries, increased the sugar to compensate and added orange extract instead of almond to the cookie crust and cranberry pie filling. Oh. My. Goodness.
