Easy Holiday Recipes

It's that time of year, and my Thanksgiving dinner recipes are family traditions that will soon become yours.

I have Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner ideas that are easy to prepare and delicious (You may be the one asked to have Thanksgiving from now on).

Any of these dishes can be used for any holiday meal; I make some of them year-round.

The first set of recipes is for the main meal and it will have them begging you for more.


Easy Holiday Recipes




Fresh Cranberry Sauce - No Sugar Added

I know you can find cranberry sauce recipes that have a lot of sugar in them. The sweetness in this recipe comes from juice, fruit and honey.

Best Cranberry Sauce without Added Sugar

2 bags of fresh cranberries
3/4 cup pineapple juice (or orange juice)
1/2 cup applesauce (without sugar if you wish)
1/2 cup water
zest and juice of 1 orange
3 to 4 TBS honey (or to taste)

Put cranberries, pineapple juice, applesauce and water in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. 

Keep on medium heat, stirring constantly until the cranberries burst; approximately 10 to 15 minutes. 

Reduce heat and simmer.  Add the juice and zest of the orange and stir well.  Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes and remove from the heat.

Cool completely and store in refrigerator at least 4 hours but preferably overnight before serving.  Make sure you taste this, because it is not as sweet as the jellied store version.  If you want it sweeter, just add more honey.  Recipe adapted from WellnessMama.com





How to Make Holiday Cinnamon Bourbon (Brandy, Whiskey, Vodka too) - this and more at MissHomemade.com


DIY Cinnamon Bourbon

(Whiskey, Brandy or Vodka works for this recipe too)

1.75L of your favorite (I like Makers Mark) bourbon
8 cinnamon sticks
3 oz simple syrup**

Add the cinnamon sticks and simple syrup to the liquor bottle and put the cap back on.  Shake the bottle daily for five days and then it is ready to serve.  It makes a great ingredient in my Christmas Alexander Recipe.

**Simple Syrup Recipe

1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup water

Simply combine equal parts (1:1) and heat in a small pan until the sugar is completely dissolved. This makes 4 ounces of simple syrup and for this recipe you only need 3 ounces - so use 3/4 of this and discard the rest, or make a drink.

This simple syrup is awesome for sweetening lemonade, iced tea or even Kool-Aid.
