Green Salad with Cranberry Vinaigrette
This salad was over the top delicious and I would make it again. I added 1 T of Chef John's mango cranberry sauce because I had made it, used 2 t red wine vinegar and 1 t of raspberry balsamic, and used part craisons and cranberries, toasted pecans instead of almonds, craisons, and soaked the red onion. I did not add any sugar because the craisons have added sugar and so did the cranberry sauce.

Pumpkin Pot De Creme
My husband and I loved this desert and both thought it was a perfect ending to the Thanksgiving meal. I did not want to buy vanilla beans or a bottle of rum so I used 1/2 t of Vanilla extract and 1/4 t of rum extract. I missed the step on covering them so they came out as a firm custard which worked out. I baked them for 45 minutes. The roasted pecans and real maple syrup on top was killer. I would make this again.

Grecian Green Beans in Tomato Sauce
I made these for Thanksgiving to be healthier and because they have a lot of flavor. I added 2 cloves of chopped garlic, 28 oz chopped tomato with the juice, and a pinch of cinnamon and cayenne pepper, cooked 40 min with lid on and 5 without so the sauce would be thicker. There was just my husband and myself and I plan to make Alton Brown's baked brown rice to go with the leftovers.
