Oatmeal Cranberry Bars

The long story short - I had some thick cranberry syrup/relish I wanted to use in a dessert. Then I remembered I have seen chefs do oatmeal bars with jam, so I looked this one up and found the following recipe: I followed the recipe using the same dry ingredients and butter but I baked it in 13x8 inch pan. I also raised the oven temperature halfway through cooking. I took it out probably in about 30 minutes when it was turning golden around the edges.

Cranberry Orange Cornbread

 I was looking for a recipe with fresh cranberries. Since they are in season I bought some extra to try something new. This was my first time baking with fresh cranberries and my first take on cornbread. Cornbread is often served at BBQ places, and I have found it quite nice. It is sweet - kind of like cake. Here is the recipe I followed: My only change was using milk with added vinegar in place of the buttermilk since I didn't have any. I thought it was just a touch more sweet but I enjoyed till the last slice. :)
