Let's have a Thanksgiving Recipe Potluck!
If you e-mail me a recipe, I'll feature you on R&W this coming Wednesday.
**Please try to submit your recipes by 5pm, Tuesday night.**
In honor of Turkey day, let's share some recipes that are sure to impress your host.
I'm all for desserts from the bakery...
My growing waistline can attest to that!
...but, let's be a little more impressive and bring something simple for the main course.
Typically, we go to my grandmother's house for Thanksgiving.
We are Sicilian, so you can imagine the feast she prepares.
It's like a little piece of Sicilian heaven, plus a turkey.
I can't wait for that lasagna!
In attempt to Americanize our meals for the American holiday, I'll bring a few traditional dishes.
I'll make homemade cranberry sauce, garlic brussel sprouts and corn bread.
I won't share the cornbread recipe since I cheat and use Jiff box mix. Shhh, don't tell!
Fresh Cranberry Sauce
I like it chunky, but feel free to change the consistency to how you like!
12oz Fresh Cranberries
1/4Cup Orange Juice
Mix the water, orange juice, and the sugar together in a pot. Bring to a boil. Add the cranberries and stir. Bring the mixture back to a boil and cook for 15 minutes on medium heat. Remove the pot from the stove. With a potato masher, mash the mixture together. Cover with saran wrap and refrigerate over night.
Madre used to strain the sauce to get all the clumps out.
