We first made this Orange Cranberry Dessert Sauce to top slices of pound cake for a Thanksgiving dessert we were testing a few years ago. It was such a hit with our whole team that we often make a batch to top other desserts all year round. A delicious citrus spin on traditional cranberry sauce, it's something everyone will love. 

What You'll Need

  • 4 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 1/2 cups orange juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons grated orange peel
  • 2 tablespoons triple sec or other orange-flavored liqueur (optional)

What to Do

  1. In a saucepan, combine cranberries, orange juice, sugar, and orange peel. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat then reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Carefully pour into a blender and process until smooth. Pour into a bowl and stir in liqueur, if desired. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving.



This sauce dresses up vanilla ice cream beautifully - both in looks and taste!

Sizzling Home Fries

The best home fries are still the ones made in diners, you know the places that are nicknamed "greasy spoons." There's just something special about the taste of potatoes slung around a sizzling hot grill and mixed with the flavors of eggs and bacon that can't be beat. Wait until you try these - they're a breakfast (or anytime) winner.
