Daughter-in-law made one of those whole cranberry relish like things with orange and other stuff in it. No one touched it but me and her husband (my son,) only because I try never to hurt anyone feelings over something they toil and labor over. I think my family just doesn't care for cranberries except for cranberry juice.

I would be more than happy to be invited out to dine with anyone that prepared Stovetop stuffing, serves a green bean casserole (never tried the stuff) and even instant mashed potatoes. They could serve me Bisquick biscuits too.
Add canned frosting to the list! The few times I've used it I felt so lazy and guilty.

This is so cold....but true.

BTW, my wifely loves canned jellied and berry CB sauce. But she is from another country and "American" cuisine fascinates.

Personally I cannot stand the stuff however, out of my four brother in laws, 2 of them have canned cranberry stuff (to me it is not really sauce or jelly) more than 3 times a week.
I prefer my cranberries in muffins or scones.

Someone mentioned green bean casserole. Okay, here we go! I make an herb cheese as the base for the green beans, which are always fresh and not overcooked. The mushrooms are fresh and organic, sautéed in butter. Then this is topped with buttermilk-battered onions that are deep-fried just before going on top. This is light-years away from the usual recipe that is on the back of the can of soup.

No canned veggies or canned soup here! And I won't even begin to discuss stuffing. That would take a very long time! Let's just say no Stove Top here, either.

I have to share this: My three year old grandson tried some of grandpa's homemade sauce for the first time and loved it. Then the day after Thanksgiving he had some more on his morning toast and later with dinner. So we have added the little guy to the ranks of those who like it homemade. Oh, by the way, we were surprised he even tried it since he can be a picky eater. Anyway, it was cute.
