They are simple to prepare and pack great taste:

1.  Pearl Onions: roast them slowly to bring out the natural sugars and taste.

2.  Real Cranberry Sauce:  Complex flavors you just don't get from a can.

Salad:  Yes, it can act as a pallet cleanser which leads to more of the other stuff

4.  Slow cooked kielbasa and peppers.  A little taste goes a long way.

5.  Whipped Sweet Potatoes create unique pairings.
