Cranberry Orange Rolls

Rating: 4.5 stars 23
A different take on sticky cinnamon rolls! I like to frost these cranberry buns with a simple vanilla glaze, but feel free to use any kind of icing you like!

Apple-Cranberry Crumble

Rating: 4.5 stars 9
Original recipe is a twist on my Mom's version. Fast and easy dessert, great for fall season when apples are freshest and the cranberries come in. I have made it without the apples or using frozen cranberries. I enjoy it as a dessert and as a breakfast treat around the Thanks-Mas season. Loaded with antioxidants! I have also made a wheat-free version using nut flour. Serve plain or topped with ice cream, whipped cream, or a drizzle of heavy cream.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Rating: 5 stars 1775
The red and green make a great Christmas cookie. Have used other nuts instead of pistachios with success. If your pistachios are salted, omit the 1/4 teaspoon salt from the recipe.

Bacon-Wrapped Cranberry Walnut Pork

Rating: 4.5 stars 10
This amazing roast pork recipe is more than festive enough for the fanciest of holiday menus, but it's also fast and easy enough for any old weeknight. Just keep that last part to yourself, so as not to ruin the mystique. Beyond being able to adapt this to your tastes, another advantage is that we can prep it ahead of time, and just pop it into the oven when we're ready to rock, and by "rock," I mean impress our guests.

Instant Pot® Orange-Cranberry-Balsamic Pork Loin

Rating: 4.5 stars 13
Succulent pork is cooked quickly in the Instant Pot® with a warm and aromatic sauce. We enjoy this with egg noodles or rice.

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

Rating: 4.5 stars 1445
I make a basic chocolate chip cookie dough, but use white chocolate chips, dried cranberries, and brandy (instead of vanilla). Great for Christmas time!

Rachel's Cranberry Chicken Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 217
This is a great sandwich filling that they make at the diner in the hospital where I work, but I fancied it up a bit with some green onions and pecans. A great way to use up leftover chicken. Delicious!

Cranberry Curd

Rating: 4.5 stars 3
Delicious over scones, oatmeal, or yogurt, this cranberry curd is a seasonal spin on traditional lemon curd. If you prefer a smoother texture, press the cranberry mixture through a fine mesh sieve after blending in the food processor. This makes enough to fill a pint jar.

Cranberry Orange Loaf

Rating: 4.5 stars 961
This is an excellent flavor to choose from. Orange and cranberry flavors will be sure to put you in the holiday spirit. It tastes even better the next day.

Spinach salad with blue cheese, walnuts, and dried cranberries. If you can't find walnut oil, olive oil may be substituted.
