Holiday time can be sensitive for many people, especially when you are near family you haven’t seen since the last holiday meal.

We are smart enough to know it’s not worth all the worry and effort to try to make changes to the menu. Do you guys have the same struggle?
At home, we will add new twists to American standards like our now-famous Ham with Guava and Habanero Marinade.
You’ll find yourself spooning the Tropical Chipotle Cranberry “Salsa” over turkey and spreading it on slices of bread when making leftover sandwiches the next day.
