Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away.  Are you ready?

Cranberry Sauce is a staple side dish on any Thanksgiving menu.   It goes so well with turkey.   If you have never made Cranberry Sauce before you will want to give this easy recipe a try.  Once you try this, you may never want to buy it in a can again. 

It is so good and smells amazing when cooking on the stove. It is worth making just for the lovely aroma it leaves in the kitchen.

I could literally eat this alone.  I actually enjoy it as a little dessert with a dollop of creamy vanilla yogurt.  It is even nice served over a simple pound cake and whipped cream.  Yummy!
