Cracker Crumb Baked Scallops

Cracker Crumb Baked Scallops are simply wicked; wicked delicious, wicked easy to prepare...they're just wicked good.  I would be remiss not to focus on these little "juju beans of the sea".  They are in season now (Oct-Dec) and you can pretty much find them anywhere in New England, specifically  this time of year.  Look for LOCAL, NATURAL (aka dry pack) scallops - avoid scallops (mostly imports) that have been treated with TSP.

These are bay scallops, the little ones.  I always pick up a pound whenever I'm buying fish, mostly always using them in baked stuffed fish dishes.  This time I decided to make them the center of attention.

Butternut Squash and Cranberry Muffins

Butternut Squash and Cranberry Muffins are a perfect way to utilize some of your leftover Thanksgiving dinner side dishes.  I always seem to buy more bags of cranberries than needed...I get caught up in the BOGO or 2fer$ sales this time of year.  So I guess I can say that these muffins are also ideal for cranberry hoarders everywhere!

Butternut Squash and Cranberry Muffins - turn Thanksgiving leftovers into these muffins!

I still had some whole wheat flour kicking around from these >>bran muffins<<, aaaand I saved my two egg yolks to make these >>chocolate chip cookies<<.  Butternut Squash Cranberry Muffins, with cookies chasers?  Win-win!  These muffins are packed with flavor; sweetened with brown sugar, paired with tart berries (both fresh and dried), and held together with a ton of squash.
