This is an easy recipe with an optional version listed below depending on which ingredients you have in the house. This makes a lot of cranberry sauce, so if you have any leftover, you will definitely want to make these muffins or these muffins.

I found a few recipes that called for candied ginger this holiday season, but initially nixed the ideas because of the highly processed versions of this sweet treat found in the grocery store. This got me thinking that it may not be too difficult to make at home, so I did a little research and here is a relatively easy version you can try too.

This recipe is from the November 2011 issue of Cooking Light, page 50 (the Super Fast section). I changed the recipe a little and we served ours with bulgur rather than brown rice since we were short on time.

My dad is on an eternal search for tasty foods. He laments that everything he cooks is tasteless and is often annoyed with the entire obligation of having to eat in general... That being said, he does occasionally attempt to make something that tastes really good and these chicken legs are an example of one of his successes. According to my dad, the key to the success of this method is to use a baking rack that allows you to cook the legs in a vertical position. See the attached link for an idea of the types of racks out there.

In my house, we get stuck in the chicken rut, chicken Monday, chicken Tuesday, chicken Wednesday, etc. (ok, you get the point) and the little one swears he hates chicken (not true, but I start to feel that way too after four nights in a row). Anyway, this little treat is super easy and such a great flavor change from the standard fare. I think you'll love it if you give it a try.
