Creamed Onions and Peas: Thanks Dana for getting me over my frozen Onion Snobbiness... ;)
Ginger Sliced Carrots: Simple recipe we have every year
Orange Cranberry Sauce and Ginger Cranberry Sauce: I want to do a boozy one (Orange) and BF wants to do Altons (Ginger), so why not do both! LOL!

Apple and Tart Cherry Pie: My very first pie! Hopefully it comes out as wonderful as last time!
