Cranberry Orange Sauce

Cranberry Orange Sauce

Another staple on our holiday table is cranberry sauce. I love making my own but my sister likes the good old cranberry sauce from the can.

I enjoy making my own because of the flavors and the versatility you have with it afterwards.

Thanksgiving leftovers may be the best part of Thanksgiving..maybe!

I enjoy my cranberry sauce on toast or on a Thanksgiving leftover turkey sandwich, either way you’ll love it!

The ULTIMATE comfort food and one of the most EASIEST crockpot meals I have ever made!

Halloween with 3 kids tend to get kind of hectic so I wanted something easy that I could just throw together in the morning and enjoy later that night before we all got ready to head out.

This meal was such a hit that my older sister Kait wanted the ingredients list and the recipe right away. She wanted to make it again and let me tell you that when there is ZERO leftovers that means you did great!

This meal could also be an east alternative to Thanksgiving or just a weekend or weekday meal to enjoy with VERY little effort involved!
