Mama’s Cranberry Apple Salad

My Mama used to make an especially yummy Apple Cranberry Salad every year for Thanksgiving.  I’ve never seen or tasted anything else like it.  It goes wonderfully with turkey or on a turkey sandwich.

Homemade Kool-Aid Play Dough

The first time I made this homemade Kool-Aid play dough I didn’t know I had to cook it and I was disappointed when I found out.  I went ahead and made it anyway and it truned out amazingly and I was so glad I did!  It is so soft and pliable and lasts a few weeks in a zip lock bag in the fridge.
