Use Up Those Leftovers! Cranberry Sauce Brownies

Cranberry Sauce

I’ve been careful not to share recipes here at Roadkill Rescue, since–ahem–the name of this blog does start with the word “roadkill”.  The kind of roadkill we’re dealing with here are the objects no one wants that get transformed into something desirable and useful.  BUT, there’s a first time for everything, and since my American readers probably have a lot of leftover food in their refrigerators this morning, I thought it would be fun to share some ideas today for using up those Thanksgiving leftovers today.  First up: cranberry sauce.
