Roundup | 7 Uses for your Leftover Cranberry Sauce

7 Uses for your Leftover Cranberry Sauce | RevamperateTaking a step back from blogging this week to wish you all a happy Thanksgiving! Andrew and I are spending the day with his grandparents and cousins, and I plan on making the best apple pie you’ve ever had (ha!) with tons of cinnamon and nutmeg. I’m taking a few days off to relax, something that seems much needed lately, and I’ll be back on Friday with a new post. 

The one thing on the Thanksgiving table that can often get overlooked is the famous cranberry sauce, so in honor of the forgotten dish, I put together a few recipes to give you seven uses for your leftover cranberry sauce! As someone who doesn’t normally love cranberry sauce, I can tell you everything tastes better in a baked good, so hopefully one of these recipes speaks to you. 

cranberry baked brie puff pastry bites //  cranberry swirl bread // cranberry frozen yogurt // cranberry sauce cream cheese streusel muffins // cranberry salad vinaigrette // cranberry yogurt coffee cake // cranberry sauce, bacon and Gorgonzola pastry puff pizza 

Have a happy Thanksgiving!

Roundup | Father’s Day Finds Under $50

Father’s Day is just around the corner, so I rounded up six Father’s Day finds under $50 in case you need ideas for your dad this year! My dad is simultaneously the hardest and easiest person so shop for, and honestly, he wouldn’t like many of the things on this list, but your dad might…ha! Mine likes Ebay gift cards, beer, tools and puzzles, and it’s a little more difficult to find cute versions of those things online. Hence, I share my ideas with you guys instead! That’s why I shared my beer bottle label DIY yesterday…that’s something my dad would truly like and appreciate. 

Hopefully some of these great gifts are just right for the dads in your life!
