SMP Thanksgiving Menu: Classic Cranberry Sauce
November 15, 2012
Cranberry sauce.  That yummy little recipe that basically needs to make an appearance on every table across the country.  Because not only is it seriously delish (and one of my personal faves), it makes for one pretty pop of color on that always amazing list of Thanksgiving goodies.  Believe you me.
