KISS (Keep it simple, silly)

No, your calendar isn't playing tricks on you.  Thanksgiving really is less than two weeks away.  For some of you, this could cause a bit of stress.  Hosting a large group and not sure where to begin?  Committed to being at 3 different places in one day?  Staying put at one house and not sure what to bring?

Times like these are perfect for having a few recipes that you can pretty much make with your eyes closed.

The best thing about this cranberry sauce is that you can make it your own by adding pretty much whatever you like.  Oh, and it takes about 10 minutes to make.  And, you can make it days in advance.  Super easy to transport, too!

Are you sold yet?


You didn't really think I'd call you stupid, did you?  ;)

Simple Cranberry Sauce
from Simply Recipes

1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 bag (12 ounces) fresh cranberries, washed and picked over
1/2 cup chopped pecans

additional ideas for add-ins:  raisins, pomegranate seeds, orange zest, cinnamon, nutmeg, walnuts

Put water and sugar in a medium sized pot.  Bring to a boil while stirring to dissolve sugar.  Add cranberries and return to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, or until cranberries burst.

Add pecans (or other add-ins), stir and remove from heat.  Cool completely at room temperature, then chill in refrigerator.

Makes about 2 1/4 cups.  Can be made a week in advance and stored in fridge.
