Foodnetwork.com has a huge selection of Thanksgiving recipes to cook and serve to your friends and family this holiday season. Two side dishes that are worth trying are Family Fresh Green Bean Casserole by Claire Robinson and Aaron McCargo Jr.’s Cinnamon Apple Cranberry Sauce.

I made the green bean casserole the other night as a side dish. I little early Thanksgiving treat. The dish was a hit. My family loved the crisp green beans, mushroom cream sauce and gooey mozzarella cheese that was melted all around the green beans. It will definitely make a great side dish to accompany roasted turkey.

This afternoon, I  prepared the cranberry sauce. It’s really simple to make and the chunks of apples, cinnamon and sugar create this wonderful aroma that fills the kitchen. It not clumpy or gelatin like those cranberry sauces you might buy in the can.  Hopefully, my family will enjoy the homemade cranberry sauce tomorrow.

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Eating!
