Lemon Cranberry Muffins

Here's a surprisingly great recipe for lemon cranberry muffins.
For a while there I had a really hard time finding cranberries in the stores. When I did finally find them in the frozen section, I grabbed 3 bags. Don't worry - I left some for others. 
The batter was very thick so I wasn't sure this recipe would even turn out, but it did! Enjoy!

Chicken Marinades

Here are a few marinades that you can whip up quickly, toss in a bag with your chicken, and freeze until you're ready to cook. 

To make these marinades, I lined up a few bowls on the counter and starting putting stuff in them.

I can’t give you measurements because I didn’t measure anything, but I can tell you what’s in each one.

I didn’t add oil to any of them but I suppose you could if you want to.

If any of your marinades seem a bit thick, add a little bit of chicken stock to thin them out.

If you want to make any of these marinades and cook the chicken the same day or the day after, stir in a little bit of plain yogurt. It helps to tenderise the chicken. I don't know if it would freeze well because I haven't tried it.

Just line the bowls up and start putting things in. I ended up making 7 flavours in the end.

Store them in bags with the flavour written on them. The bag at the top was a second bag of teriyaki which we grilled that day.
