This sauce features round, floral notes of vanilla to complement the tart sweetness of the cranberries. To make the recipe even more quickly, you could use two teaspoons of vanilla extract, but it won’t have the same depth of flavor – or the pretty vanilla-speckled look – of the whole bean.
Tart cranberry flavor with a hint of sweetness and a twist of lemon, our homemade Lemon Cranberry Sauce will please a crowd - the best part is that you can make it entirely in advance and garnish at the last moment!
If you’ve never made homemade cranberry sauce, you’re in for a treat – it’s amazingly easy. While many versions are enhanced with orange, switching the citrus to grapefruit keeps this one familiar yet refreshing.
Mashed potatoes are a wonderfully blank canvas that can be enhanced by adding other vegetables to the cooking water. Here, cauliflower adds nutty notes while dill stirred in at the end adds lovely green flecks and a pop of fresh flavor.
Serving roasted potatoes means you’re not a slave to the stove top; the oven does the work and you get more time with your guests. And don’t be misled by the short ingredients list – this recipe is loaded with flavor.
