Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Can you believe it?! In addition to the traditional turkey, every gathering seems to have certain dishes that are a unique tradition. Dishes like peach stuffing, baked artichoke hearts, and sweet potato-coconut casserole are just a few of the possibilities.

Here are a few of the dishes our family enjoys every year. My wife, my sister-in-law, and my brother-in-law were kind enough to share their recipes. If you’re inclined, share your favorite(s) in the comments!

Cranberry Sauce

Put the following 3 ingredients through the food processor:

2 apples

2 oranges

2 bags of fresh cranberries

Then add:

2 cans of whole cranberry sauce

1-2 cups of sugar depending how sweet or tart you want it to be.

Stir together.

Best if made the day before and chilled in the refrigerator overnight so all the flavors can blend together.

It’s a must at our family Thanksgiving ??!

Thanks Donna!

1 1/4 cups of flour

4 tablespoons of cocoa

Do not over mix. There will be some lumps in the batter.
