Cranberry sauce takes just a few minutes and can be made days ahead of time. When you taste the difference in homemade, you’ll never buy a can of cranberry sauce again. This is a recipe from Food and Wine with a few modifications.
1/2 cup ruby port wine
Zest from one orange
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
12 ounces fresh cranberries
1/2 cup sugar
1. In a medium saucepan, combine the port with the orange zest and orange juice (see notes below) and bring to a boil.
2. Add the cranberries and sugar and simmer over moderately low heat until the sauce is jamlike, about 25 minutes. The aromas of the orange and sweet port wine alone are divine.
3. Transfer to a bowl and serve warm or at room temperature
A microplane is a valuable kitchen tool for zesting oranges and lemons.
Use an orange juicer to juice a fresh orange. This recipe will not be as good if you use store-bought orange juice.
"Finding you [has] truly inspired me to cook more and focus on quality ingredients. Strengthening my kitchen intuition has been key, it's how I know to roll leftovers into something new or I can see what I bought and come up with creative solutions.
As a family, we always valued sitting down together for dinner but now it's done with so much less stress. I can be done with work and still make easy meals . . . amazing quality meals that are thrown together in a short time and we get to enjoy each other!"

"We have made a lot of progress over here under your care. We are now all eating from the same “pot” which I was surprised how much my kids loved. They were so excited when I put the food in the middle of the table. They asked for it the next day, Can we do that special fancy dinner thing where we have a feast? It really is such a better ritual—passing the food around and all sharing from the same platter, a real game changer."
“I don't know if I told you, but I accidentally lost about 8 lbs after cutting out most semi-processed foods!"
