An alternative to traditional cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving, and much more delicious! Almost tastes like it should be dessert, and not a side dish!

This was very rich and delicious. I used pecans instead of walnuts. Next time, I may try using coolwhip in place of the whipped cream in order to lighten it up a bit. That way I can eat more.... Try this one... Read More

This salad was fine but it wasn't memorable. I made it for Thanksgiving and there was a lot left over (probably due in part to the need to keep it frozen so we couldn't leave it out on the table). I would have preferred a stronger cranberry flavor. It was too mild and creamy for me. Read More

Oh my goodness this is SO good! We are on a low carb diet and had some friends over for dinner. I served this and everyone raved without even knowing that we were on any type of diet. It's a perfect blend of fruity creamy and sweet....but not too sweet. I'm going to make another batch now. Read More

My great aunt made this recipe when I was a child and I always loved it. When she passed away no one knew the recipe. I am so excited that I finally found it! Read More

A great cranberry dish. Something light cool and refrishing to go with the heavy turkey dressing and gravy. Can be prepared in advance. Also a plus! Read More
