Cranberrylicous! Autumn Food Day 14

Cranberries.  I always think of BOGS when I think of cranberries.  And those two guys standing in a cranberry bog for that juice commercial.  Also wonder what it would be like to stand there with wade boots on with millions of cranberries floating all around?  What about swimming with cranberries???  OK, enough with my crazy thoughts...
So Teen had found a recipe she was wishing to bake.  I swear, her baking is going to keep those baby pounds on my hips.  I have NO willpower!  Oh well!  So we bought fresh cranberries earlier this week and had all the other ingredients on hand.  This evening as dinner wrapped up so quickly - got to love a fast meal! - we baked!  Well, technically the Teen and the two boys baked.  Of course that meant flour and sugar made it's way on my nice and newly cleaned kitchen floor.  Memories in the making, right?  But the Teen was very patient with her brothers as they made Cranberry Cake with Warm Vanilla Butter Sauce.  The butter sauce has not been made yet.  But the cakes are out of the oven and we even had a taste test to insure they were yummy!  Which they were!  We will be taking part for lunch with the grandparents tomorrow along with the butter sauce.  Can't wait to try them with it!
