I just arrived home after an entire month visiting family and friends on the east coast. A luxury, I admit, but I'm just getting my new career going after graduating culinary school in September. I had the time and it was actually cheaper (and soooo much less crowded) to travel so outside the normal holiday rush. Had a blast, but happy to be home in good ole Napa Valley, CA!

I spent a good amount of time cooking (and imbibing) with my step-mom, Kathy. She's been in my life since I was 14, and a very special connection for me since my dad passed away in 2008. She makes this cranberry salsa every holiday and it gets gobbled up every time! I altered it just a bit by using a sweeter apple (gala vs. red delicious) so that I could trim the sugar and boosted the flavor with cilantro and a chipotle pepper.

It's been so warm on the east coast that Kathy's sage was still going strong.
