Cornbread topped with Cranberries

I revised my basic cornbread recipe to accommodate my extra cranberries this winter. It’s been so much fun photographing cranberries…they are colorful and beautifully translucent. During those chilly days it was uplifting to spend time in my studio photographing these lovely fruit dishes.  The warm sun coming through the windows was marvelous! One bonus was enjoying the cornbread after the photo shoot.
