If you are looking out for something sweet, Cranberry Grape Sauce can be a nice idea. You will need cranberry, seedless black grapes, shallots, orange juice and orange zest. This will definitely be an awesome treat for your guests.

Many of us don’t prefer veggies. But crispy Squash Spinach Salad is quite tempting to reject. Roast a squash in a preheated oven at 425 degrees F.
