Cranberry Chutney

This fruity chutney has been my favorite cranberry condiment for more than twenty years. It's cranberry for grown-ups, thick with that wonderful sourness of fresh cranberries plus dried fruit and toasted nuts, deepened with a splash of brandy. And it's a season-spanning chutney, good for Thanksgiving but also as a side or hostess gift during the weeks before and after Christmas. Real Food, Fresh & Seasonal. Weeknight Easy, Weekend Special. Great for Meal Prep. Great for Gifts. Potluck & Party Friendly. Not just vegan, Vegan Done Real . Naturally Gluten Free.

Cranberry Orange Relish with Fresh Ginger

Cranberry Orange Relish is that old-fashioned family favorite at Thanksgiving. You know the one, right? where you grind cranberries with a whole orange and sweeten it with sugar? I jazz up the classic cranberry-orange combo with a touch of fresh ginger for a bit of sassy contemporary flavor while still honoring the original . With or without ginger, the relish turns extra frosty-good when made at the last minute with frozen cranberries. Cranberry Sauce Made from Scratch with Just Four Ingredients.

Cheese Gnocchi Pie

This was my first Kitchen Parade column! It was published in 2002 in the Baudette Region, the newspaper where my mom wrote Kitchen Parade for twelve years. Today I wouldn't call this "gnocchi" for it's a far cry from the authentic Italian dumplings. But I still make it – it's definitely delicious, like cheesy polenta. [Update: But maybe it's more authentic than it appears, scroll down to the bottom of the page to read the comment from Karen.] COMPLIMENTS! "It was so tasty & my picky partner gobbled it up, too!" ~ Jessica "... our kids (now in college), who won't eat polenta or grits or anything like that, but they love this." ~ Karen Welcome back, Kitchen Parade! Long-time Region readers will remember when my mom, Shirley Kellogg, introduced this column in 1959. Mom was a young wife and new mother then, also a home economist finding her place in a small town. Week in, week out, she wrote the column for twe

Mom was a young wife and a new mother then, also a home economist and city girl finding her place in a small town. For twelve years, she wrote the column week in and week out and only stopped when our family moved away.
