apple and cranberry sauce #mywestelm

thank you to West Elm for sponsoring today’s discussion. Recipe, photos and crazy ideas are all mine!

I love cranberries and tend to do a little dance in the grocery store the moment they arrive. That’s why I am here to say…

Step away from the can!
You know, that can of red slime that people put on the Thanksgiving day table. I’m pretty sure that should be considered a crime against the Holiday since making homemade fresh cranberry sauce is like the easiest thing ever.

I told you all about my West Elm obsession and showed you the other items I got, but the minute I saw these icy blue enamel bowls at West Elm Market, I thought CRANBERRY! The crisp red with the cool blue screams holiday fun and will be front and center on my T-day table this year.

We have started a new tradition with each of my girls making a signature dish of their own for Thanksgiving. Teagan makes a yummy apple crisp and Stella will be in charge of the apple cranberry sauce this year.


Ingredients: makes approximately 2 cups

1 – 12 ounce bag fresh cranberries – about 3 cups
1 tart apple – peeled, cored and diced
1 cup water
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves *optional


combine all ingredients in medium saucepan ans simmer over low heat for 10-15 minutes, cranberries will have mostly popped. allow to cool and serve. may be stored covered in the refrigerator for up to a week

What kind of cranberry sauce do you serve for the Holidays?
and just in case you love this West Elm Market bowl as much as I do, West Elm is offering 20% off all table top items through November 26th! so get shopping.


and a little reminder of my winter West Elm table, enamel mug and bowls and rocking salt and pepper shakers.
