Hello Picket Fence friends! This is Angelina from JoJo & Eloise!
Well, 2013 quickly came and went, and now we are looking at the Brand New Year of 2014!
I SERIOUSLY have no clue how this has happened. I still remember the EVE of the year 2000, like it was yesterday. Maybe it’s age or maybe time is REALLY speeding up on us, I prefer the latter thought of course.
This year I am all about NEW things. One of those NEW things is Foods. I really want to try out, LOTS of New foods this year. Whether that be a New Spin on something old or just trying out something completely NEW to me, kind of foods.
Cranberries are one of those, NEW things I want to try more of. It’s not that I have never tried or had Cranberries before. It’s just, that I don’t EVER use Cranberries. I find myself looking past them or picking something else on the menu to eat, if Cranberries are in it.
Just before Thanksgiving, one of my Facebook/Blogging friends, Clarice from Storybook Woods had posted a Gluten Free Cranberry Cake recipe. Our family is Gluten Free, so I am always on the look out for new GF recipes.
This one particularly caught my eye. I had actually just (that day) bought some Fresh, Organic Cranberries from the Market. I am not sure, I really had any intention of using them, it just seemed like the Holiday thing to do. Not to mention I was seeing all those BEAUTIFUL, Sugar Sprinkled cranberries, ALL over Blog land. I did a Quick assessment of my pantry, to see if I had all the ingredients on hand. To my surprise, I had everything needed.
This recipe for Gluten Free Cranberry Cake, is actually very Quick, Easy and Simple. My girls actually put it together in no time flat. (They LOVE baking)
I have to say that this came out AMAZING!!
My whole family LOVED it (Kids and ALL). We have now had this, Gluten Free Cranberry Cake, 3 separate times already.

I am really looking forward to this year of 2014, in how I can work Cranberries into our Families diet. Finding New ways to use and enjoy them.
What foods have you over looked or maybe even turned your nose up at?
Are you willing to try some NEW things/food this year, if so what might that be?
Maybe you’ll consider giving this Gluten Free, Cranberry Cake a try, I am sure you will LOVE it, just as much as we do.
NOTE** It’s not a super sweet dessert, so if your use to SUGARY foods you may want to add more sugar. We have a VERY, VERY low sugar diet, so our children are use to, low to unsweetened foods and desserts.
I Hope you enjoy it and have a VERY BLESSED New Year!
