Thanksgiving 2016!

This Thanksgiving we tried out a few new recipes! Overall, it turned out delicious and we got to try out new recipes! The turkey turned out juicy and moist. We started cooking everything the morning of Thanksgiving, so nothing was prepared in advance.

We made:

Cranberry Sauce - SUPER easy (1 bag cranberries - 1 cup sugar (vary to taste) and 2 oranges all blended up until desired consistency is reached!)


We will go in detail over each recipe in the following posts.

All on a plate!
