No, not gourmet, but if you are honestly making everything for a full thanksgiving dinner from scratch without any help, then you're reading this blog because you're amazing and you just want to make me feel good about myself. Bless you.
I am no cranberry connoisseur -- my family always had this cranberry jello salad that secretly no one actually likes. Which means that this little recipe tastes pretty darn good to me. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Exhibit A: The breakfast fruit shake of glory. This fruit shake is delicious and (I'm told that) because it has protein powder, it doesn't shake up your blood sugar level as much as other sweet smoothies do.
