angela@newnan. com

Now that grocery store produce aisles are stocked with fresh, ripe cranberries, it's a good time to experiment with a new recipe with these healthy red berries. They've long been associated with the Thanksgiving table, but cranberries can be enjoyed year- round. A good source of calcium, potassium and vitamin C, cranberries are among the fruits and vegetables high in antioxidants. Fans of cranberries will want to check out "The Joy of Cranberries" by Theresa Millang (Adventure Publications, $12.95), which offers more than 200 recipes for muffins, salads, dips, salsas, biscotti, truffles, punch and yes, sauces, all made with cranberries.

Kearney Hub - Katrina Campuzano
New Cookbook 'Joy of Cranberries' joins Kearney woman's lineup of well-received recipe books;
next watch for 'Joy of Strawberries'


KEARNEY - Cranberries are one fruit that always comes to mind during the holiday season.
Theresa Millang, 72, of Kearney proves cranberries aren't just for the holidays anymore in her book,
"The Joy of Cranberries" ($12.95 Adventure Publications).

The spiral-bound book, one in a series of five, contains recipes for soups, desserts, muffins, breads, appetizers, salads, drinks and more.

Millang, originally from Louisiana, began writing cookbooks in the early 1980s as a hobby. Her first book, full of Cajun recipes, was self-published and sold around Minneapolis.
"That's when Cajun cooking was really hot:' Millang said. "So I thought, 'Well, I'm Cajun, so I can do that.'"

Millang then found a publisher to print her postcard- formatted book, "The Muffin are Coming"
"That one did really well. We sold 76,000 copies," she said. "Usually if you sell 3,000 you're doing pretty well."

Today, 14 books and one publisher later,Millang is seeing much success. Her fruit series includes books on blueberries, rhubarb, apples, cherries, cranberries, and the latest, "The Joy of Strawberries:' is currently being printed.
Millang said she plans to continue writing cookbooks and has several ideas for books already in the works.
"I'm always into something," she said.

Theresa Millang's books, including "The Joy of Cranberries:' are available at Walden Books in Kearney, bookstores across the nation and at

If cranberries only grace your dinner table once or twice a year, you're missing out! For starters, cranberries are high in antioxidants, which are thought to prevent cancer, heart disease and age-related disorders. In addition, they are considered a good source of vitamin C, calcium and potassium, and they contain a chemical compound that inhibits bacteria that cause urinary tract infections, peptic ulcers and dental plaque. But more importantly, there are over 200 delicious recipes in The Joy of .. Cranberries - The Tangy Treat, by Theresa Millang and you are sure to find at least one dish you will enjoy eating throughout the entire year.
Wisconsin is one of the largest producers of cranberries and harvest begins in September and continues into October and November and is part of the reason cranberries are served over Thanksgiving and Christmas. We like to eat them when they are available; thus, the reason cranberry relish is served at most Thanksgiving meals.
Turkey and stuffing go hand in hand, and Theresa includes delicious recipes for this traditional side dish. Try Cornbread
Cranberry Sausage Dressing, Pecan Cranberry Stuffing or Wild- Rice Apple Cranberry Stuffing.
Cranberry side dishes are a great accompaniment to pork, chicken, beef or turkey. If you want to try something new, why not prepare Carrot-Cranberry-Raisin Salad, Sandra's Cranberry Salad, AppleCranberry-Sweet Potato Bake, Cranberry Acorn Squash, Cranberry Risotto or. Sweet Potato Cranberry Cake?
Cranberries are delicious in breads and muffins. Try Blueberry- Cranberry Muffins, Fresh Cranberry Muffins, Orange- Cranberry Oat Bran Muffins, Banana-Cranberry Bread, Chocolate Cranberry Bread or Pumpkin Cranberry Bread
