Apple-Cranberry Crumble

Rating: 4.44 stars
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 Orange Rolls

Rating: 4.26 stars
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!

Bacon-Wrapped Cranberry Walnut Pork

Rating: 4.64 stars
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.

Apple Cider-Cranberry Bread

Rating: 4.2 stars
This is a sweet and slightly tangy apple cider bread for breakfast, snack, or just when you need a little something... Happy baking!

Instant Pot® Orange-Cranberry-Balsamic Pork Loin

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

Cranberry Sauce with Orange Juice

Rating: 5 stars
The warmth of the ginger and cloves and the brightness of the orange zest come together to make this a family favorite! You can use frozen cranberries if you can't find fresh--just simmer a few minutes longer. Make this ahead of time, and save yourself some stress on the big day!

Cranberry-Orange Shortbread Cookies with Apricots

Rating: 5 stars
I was searching to make the perfect citrus-y cranberry shortbread cookie, but it always felt like something was missing. So on a final attempt, when I didn't have enough dried cranberries to make a full recipe, I threw in some dried apricots and bam! That was it! They add the perfect backdrop flavor to these shortbread cookies!

Cream Cheese Cranberry Crumble Bars

Rating: 5 stars
These crumble bars are a yummy way to use up leftover cranberry sauce.

Rachel's Cranberry Chicken Salad

Rating: 4.74 stars
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!

Cocktail Meatballs

Rating: 4.47 stars
These tasty meatballs will disappear quickly from anyone's holiday party. My mom makes them every year for New Years Eve, and now so do I. These do very well in a slow cooker, as you can simmer them before serving, as well as keep them hot for the duration of your party.

Cranberry Orange Loaf

Rating: 4.68 stars
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.

Harvest Salad

Rating: 4.8 stars
Spinach salad with blue cheese, walnuts, and dried cranberries. If you can't find walnut oil, olive oil may be substituted.
