What would Thanksgiving be without cranberries?


I love cranberry sauce, but the very best is with whole berries.
I’ve posted about this sauce in the past, and given you the recipe here:
Best Ever Cranberry Sauce

I made it again (for maybe the 10th year in a row?) last week; froze three nice containers of it; and can’t wait to dig in on Thursday!


Another wonderful way to use cranberries is this
“Must Make” Cake


This recipe is from Ina Garten. It’s very very easy to make, looks beautiful, and guaranteed to please. I am not a pie person, so am considering this on Thanksgiving (family is telling me no…must have pie!)

But guess what? Thanksgiving Day, this year, happens to also be my Birthday!! So I get to choose, right?


One last recipe from THE CLEVER CARROT
“Stuffed Endives with Cranberries & Roquefort”


Just how beautiful is this appetizer? Nothing too heavy before a big Thanksgiving dinner, but so pretty, and healthy and easy to make ahead of time.
If you don’t know Emilie at The Clever Carrot, do take a look at her posts, her recipes and her photography. It’s definitely a blog worth following!

So there you have it: a few ideas for your last minute shopping and eating pleasure.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
