These are perfect for when you become an empty nester and the kids are to far away, or a perfect holiday basket of goodies for that shut-in neighbor of yours, or when you are just starting out and are on your own for the holidays.

Each dish is made with 1/2 a (12 oz)bag of cranberries and 1/2 of a small can crushed pineapple
