No Thanksgiving meal is complete without the ubiquitous compote dish of cranberry sauce. While I don’t actually mind the simple jellied cranberry sauce from a can (ridges and all) I think fresh homemade cranberry sauce just makes the meal special. I love to put a little cranberry sauce on each forkful of turkey to add a little sweetness to the savory meat.
And a turkey sandwich is not a proper turkey sandwich the next day without some leftover cranberry sauce on it if you ask me!
So I rounded up 15 of my favorite cranberry sauce recipes from around the web to inspire you this Thanksgiving. I am still trying to narrow down the one I will be making this year. I am thinking of trying one of the boozy sauce recipes as a new twist!
Sit back, enjoy and have fun with this collection!

For me fall is all about the food! And nothing says fall to me like a caramel apple. Oh sure you can melt some caramels and dip some apples in it, maybe toss some nuts or sprinkles on to make it fancy. But that get’s sort of boring after a while. So check out these 21 Fall Caramel Apple Inspired Recipes that we rounded up for you from across the web.
If something is really neat, they say it’s the “best thing since sliced bread.” Personally, I’ve never understood that phrase, because although store-bought sliced bread is convenient and does the job, it’s nothing compared to homemade bread. And you don’t have to be a professional baker, or even have a bread machine to make delicious bread at home. Quick breads are extremely easy to make because they don’t require time to rise, kneading, or the use of yeast. In most cases, you just mix them right up, pour them in a pan and bake! They are very easy to customize too. You can throw in your favorite add-ins, like chocolate chips, fruit, fresh herbs, or even flavor extracts. The combinations are literally endless. Even if you don’t have a creative bone in your body when it comes to baking, there are plenty of recipes on the internet to get you started. Here are a few
of my favorites. Continue reading
My husband said he was in the mood for a good burger. And frankly that sounded good to me too. So when I spotted this recipe I thought I should put it on my meal plan because burgers + pizza….yeah that sounds pretty tasty to me. My kids are not huge burger fans though so I am hoping that if I made them mini pizza burgers (AKA sliders) that they will give these a try! Wish me luck!
So what’s for dinner tonight? Meat Lover’s Cheesy Stuffed Pizza Burgers in 30 Minutes
Nothing in this recipe breaks the bank. You can often get pepperoni super cheap by watching your sales and combining it with coupons. The specialty ciabatta buns might be a bit more pricy than regular buns (which you could totally use) but I don’t think they break the bank. Also I love that this uses just a little marinara sauce because to be honest with you, my 16 year old, Hannah, loves to make spaghetti and it seems that I always have an open jar of sauce in the fridge.
- lb 80% lean ground beef
- 1 lb mild Italian sausage, casings removed
- 1 lb thick cut bacon
- ½ cup shredded Italian cheese
- 1 (7-oz) package pepperoni

I am slowly getting prepared for Halloween, at least in my mind. As I mentioned in the 15 Frugal Halloween Wreaths post I did a few weeks back, my twins Liam & Carly happen to be Halloween babies and it is SO much fun. But it also puts me in a quandary when it comes to finding treats for their class that are not full of sugar. Our schools are pretty strict with their rules on no sugary treats. I got away with mini caramel apples last year because they were at least partially healthy and I did up really small apples. Plus I timed bringing treats to share with the classes at the end of the school day so the teachers were not left with kids strung out on sugar.
So in my quest for healthy, kid friendly and school approved snacks I present you with these 10 Healthy Halloween Treats!
