Cranberry Chutney I
Excellent departure from the usual canned cranberry sauce. This is now my family's favorite for the holidays. The sauce was perfect--thick enough to add to left-over turkey/cream cheese and cranberry sandwiches the next day! I added lemon juice and zest to the recipe which adds a citrusy zing to the already spicy blend. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I have--Christine L., thanks for sharing a wonderful recipe.

Cream Cheese Ball
This cheese ball was originally served at a holiday get together I attended. I had to have the recipe.... Substituting Pecans for the walnuts adds a slightly different flavor to the ball. Also, the ball was very creamy and I found that shaping the "ball" into a log easier for serving. Very good with butter-type crackers.
