Are you celebrating Thanksgiving or Hanukkah? Or what about both?

How are you celebrating the holiday this year? 

Are you celebrating Thanksgiving or Hanukkah? What is your favorite meal for the season? If you celebrate Hanukkah, do you feel like it overlapping Thanksgiving takes away from the sacredness of the holiday? I have many friends that are Jewish, and I know how much they put into getting their meals ready for holidays.
The Pioneer Woman I Ree's Fresh Cranberry Sauce
My husband's favorite recipe of the holiday is the fresh cranberry sauce from the Pioneer Woman, Ree. I keep joking I'm going to show up on her doorstep one day with my friend because she has an in. LOL... 

  • 1 bag (12 Oz. Bag) Cranberries
  • 1 cup Cranberry Juice (or Orange, Apple Or Any Ot¬her Juice Combination)
  • 1 cup Pure Maple Syrup (not Pancake Syrup!)
  • 3 Tablespoons Juice (you Could Also Do Orange Zest, Lemon Zest, Lemon Juice – Anything Citrusy)
Preparation Instructions
Wash bag of cranberries under cool water, then dump into a medium saucepan.
Pour in 1 cup of cranberry juice (or whatever juice you choose).
Pour in 1 cup maple syrup.
Add orange juice (you could also do orange zest, lemon zest, lemon juice – anything citrusy).
Stir together and turn heat on high until it reaches a boil.
Once it comes to a rolling boil, turn the heat down to medium low and continue cooking over lower heat for about 10 minutes, or until the juice is thick. Turn off the heat.

How YUM!!
