Our family loves to cook.  Really.  Like … everyone from the youngest child to the oldest, parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles.  Everyone cooks.  So, that means that we have a long list of family favorite dishes.  Our list was long enough that I wrote a family cookbook and gave it to my daughter when she was in middle school, and she actually appreciated it.  Of  course, it has since become property of the whole house, leaving me to realize I should have published more than one.  Now everyone just keeps giving me notes, requests and requirements for my next cookbook.  What I’ve learned?  Publish more than one.

All that being said, we’re well into enjoying the holidays in our house.  So while the prep work for our favorite dishes is ongoing, so is my preparation to make sure I can eat some of these things, ’cause I suffer with frequent heartburn, thanks so much genetics.  Years ago, I found one thing that works for me and it’s Nexium® 24HR Capsules 42ct.  I like it because just one pill a day provides all-day, all-night protection from frequent heartburn – no matter what triggers it.*  Nexium® 24HR provides protection from frequent heartburn so everyone can savor the best of the holidays, like this tart and sweet cranberry apple bake recipe.

Aren’t those apples and cranberries beautiful?  I love this dish.

This dish is all about the apples and the cranberries.  Peel, halve, core, and slice or chop the apples.  I prefer them chopped.  Next, wash and pick over the cranberries.  Grease the pan and add the apples.  Here’s the fun part.  Pour all those cranberries over the apples.  There’s something satisfying about dumping out all those cranberries.  Plus, it’s so pretty!

brown sugar topping

Mix sugar and cornstarch together in small bowl.  Add vanilla, butter and preserves and pour it over the apples and cranberries.  Next, you top it with pecans and bake it!

As much as I love this cranberry apple bake, I plan ahead because my heartburn will show up no matter how much I wish it would ignore this acidic dish.  *Nexium® 24HR may take 1-4 days for full effect. It is not immediate relief.  I bought my Nexium® 24HR Capsules at Walgreens.  I love that store.  Every time I go in there they are having an awesome deal on something.  I got a buy one get one on a stocking stuffer that I wanted and their brand of lip balm is my favorite.  I hope they never stop selling it.
