My favorite ever easy homemade cranberry sauce recipe! Nothing beats a classic when it comes to cranberry sauce. All you need is a little bit of orange juice and zest, some cranberries and sugar! It is so good when you just keep things simple!

Eric just tried to walk me through how to fix our broken garage door on the phone. Needless to say, my car is still trapped in the garage and I am still stuck at home. I did NOT get the fix-it gene.

I just know that when he gets home, he will walk into the garage, twiddle something once or twice, screw in something here or there, and the job will be done in 5 minutes flat. Men! How do they just know stuff like this??

I am spending my home bound afternoon curled up with a blanket by the fire, so I suppose I can’t complain too much. I almost feel guilty about having the fire going right now because of all the smoke in our area, but it’s the cheapest way for me to heat my living room. I live in Sacramento, about 80 miles from the fire that took Paradise last week. The smoke is still really bad. The kids have to stay inside at lunch and recess, and Eric’s entire university shut down campus today (he works at UC Davis).
