Slice, toss, dress, purée — with hardly any actual cooking, cheese boards are an easy and elegant idea for a cool dinner on a hot summer evening.
Thanksgiving is not Thanksgiving unless there are cranberries. When I was little, the cranberry sauce we most often had was the canned variety. We gently unmolded it from its container and then lovingly placed whole cylindrical-shaped blob onto a cut crystal plate. Then it was sliced, very elegantly, into slabs. Eventually, we realized that it is so very simple to make from scratch. Many folks prepare a cooked version, but I love the way my fresh relish bursts with sweet-tart flavor. Plus, it only takes about 5 minutes to throw together, freeing up precious time for other Thanksgiving-day cooking.
