thanksgiving recipes

hello friends, happy thanksgiving week! we did an IG story poll, and most of you enjoy side dishes more than the main dish as well, so we thought we'd share this... no judgments here, but we compiled a couple healthier thanksgiving options for all you health-conscious folks to indulge in... I'm hoping to enjoy some of my mami's infamous panes con pollo.. but may try a few of these recipes out as well... let us know if you try any of them!

cranberry sauce

by Simply Recipes

 thanksgiving recipes


• 1 cup (200 g) sugar

• 1 cup (250 ml) water

• 4 cups (12 oz package) fresh or frozen cranberries

• pecans, orange zest, raisins, currants, blueberries, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice (optional)


• place the cranberries in a colander and rinse them. pick out and discard any damaged or bruised cranberries

• put the water and sugar in a medium saucepan on high heat and bring to a boil. stir to dissolve the sugar

• add the cranberries to the pot and return to a boil. lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until most of the cranberries have burst

 once the cranberries have burst you can leave the cranberry sauce as is, or dress it up with other ingredients. some people like adding raisins or currants, or even blueberries for added sweetness. you can also add holiday spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, or allspice. if adding spices, start with a pinch of each and add more to your taste.

 remove the pot from heat. Let cool completely at room temperature, then transfer to a bowl to chill in the refrigerator. Note that the cranberry sauce will continue to thicken as it cools.
