Pomegranate Salad- Pomegranate Salad from Arvada, Colorado

My grandmother passed this recipe to my mother who passed it on to me and my children. I do not remember a Thanksgiving in my entire life (and I'm 69 years old) without this salad and we try to serve it on Christmas, too. My 86-year-old aunt who lives in St. George, Utah, grows the sweet variety of pomegranates in her back yard. She manages to send me a box of this wonderful fruit every year a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving.

Dreamy Cranberry Delight- Beverly Gurth from Minneapolis, MN

I love cheese cake. So, it was easy to come up with this simple recipe. The ingredients just sounded too good to be able to create this scrumptuous side dish. It is a perfect compliment to your turkey dinner. The preparation is simple and only takes minutes to create. I don't have a picture, but could take one if needed.

My husband and children look forward to my dressing every Thanksgiving and Christmas and expect to take some home with them. This makes me feel so good. I love to cook when my family loves to eat what I'm cooking.

Green Been Casserole - Aurora from California

This was special because we shared this dish with a homeless fellow on Thanksgiving, and also with my daughter and her family for the first time. I don't have a picture; I never thought of that, just eating it.

Teresa's Sweet Potato Casserole - Andy from North Carolina

This is the most amazing way to eat sweet potatoes. It's not low-calorie, but it is high comfort food. One time when my kids were young, they were a little intimidated about eating sweet potato casserole. I surprised them when I said "no one leaves the table until they eat the casserole or they put their hands in it and squish it around." They had the greatest time and 15 years later bring up that holiday memory.

Savoury Oat Nut Vegetable Cake - Dinah from New York

My Auntie Brenda made this in England when I lived with her. It was a favorite of my sons, and we often had it after a long day of fox hunting. I make it in the winter, and it's wonderful hot or cold with HP sauce. It's healthy and filling. Good for a savoury snack.
