It’s the most wonderful time of the year…holiday season! I am so ready for the holidays this year and I can’t wait to make some new memories with my family. And, of course, make a lot of yummy food! A lot of memories are made in the kitchen!

When attending Thanksgiving dinner (if I’m not hosting), I always bring a dish. Whether it’s a dessert or a side, I like to bring something to the table. I like to try out new recipes and also have some classics that are my go-to’s. When I think about the holiday dinner table, there has to be cranberries! It’s not Thanksgiving dinner without cranberries, am I right? Ocean Spray has you covered with everything you need to make your first (or any) Thanksgiving a memorable meal. If you need help, just ask CranMa! You can get all the Thanksgiving help you need 24/7!

Recently, I attended the Ocean Spray CranMa’s Thanksgiving Bootcamp where I learned a lot of tips and tricks for hosting Thanksgiving dinner and tasted a lot of yummy recipes featuring cranberries, of course! And my favorite was hands down the Fresh Cranberry Orange Relish!

A super simple side dish that only takes minutes to make. And when you are hosting Thanksgiving, you need to have some simple recipes! Just throw your cranberries and orange slices in a food processor and let it do all the work for you! You can make this Thanksgiving morning or even the day before. Store in the refrigerator in a glass bowl until you are ready!
