Thanksgiving, Just Like That™


Create a Thanksgiving table just like this…just like that. We’ve got everything you need to set a festive table in stores and online at

We partnered with food stylist and consultant Valerie Aikman-Smith to create the beautiful feasts in our holiday videos, and we’ll be sharing some of the recipes on our blog throughout the holiday season.

Skip the traditional Thanksgiving rolls this year. We have a recipe that’s far more festive. The savory Cranberry Pecan and Orange Muffins you see above are delicious, easy to make and likely to disappear just as quickly as they do in the video. Our tip? Make enough for seconds!

Makes 24


  • 3 cups of All Purpose Flour
  • 1½ teaspoons of Baking Soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup of Milk
  • ¾ cup of Plain Yogurt
  • Zest and juice of 2 medium sized oranges
  • 1½ cups of dried Cranberries
  • ¾ cup of roughly chopped pecans


Preheat the oven to 350F.

Spray two muffins tins with vegetable oil and set aside.

Mix together the flour, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, yogurt, orange zest and juice.

Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and slowly pour in the wet ingredients, stirring to combine. Fold in the cranberries and half of the pecans.

Spoon the muffin mix into the prepared tins and sprinkle with the remaining pecans. Bake for 25-30 minutes.

Remove from the oven and place on wire racks to cool.
