If you’re a traditionalist and actually want to eat your cranberries, try my Cranberry Lime Compote. It’s a delicious substitute for standard cranberry sauce and also wonderful addition to a cheese board.

These are a few of my favorite ways to dress up my holiday table. What are your favorite holiday hacks that make your celebrations special?
