Notes from the Kitchen: Craisins Challenge


This month Ocean Spray is conducting a nationwide taste taste between Craisins Dried Cranberries and raisins. I recently participate in this fun swap from raisins to Craisins by adding them in everything from cookies to breakfast bars. These vibrant cranberries have double the antioxidants of raisins, are an amazing source of fiber and equal one serving of fruit. I loved testing out this tangy and sweet cranberries
