Christmas is a time of sharing and gift giving, and what better to give than homemade dishes prepared with love! In the days leading up to Christmas, I tend to bake cookies, palmeritas (palmiers) and cakes, or make fruit jams to give to my loved ones. This year I chose this cranberry orange cake as my favorite, and it’s already been a hit with many who have received it! MORE + LESS -
