Yep. These are all gluten-free recipes in our Thanksgiving menu this year. Boy, that fluffy stuffing recipe with chorizo still has me stoked. Here’s a cranberry sauce that tastes great and takes just a few minutes to make.


1 12 oz bag fresh cranberries
1 cup organic cane sugar
1 5ml (airplane size) bottle Grand Marnier


Rinse the cranberries in a strainer. Place in a 2 quart saucepan over medium heat. Add sugar and Grand Marnier. Cover and simmer, turning down if it bubbles up until most of the cranberries have popped. Cool and place in a bowl. Serve and enjoy!
