Reviews for Ham with Cranberry-Pineapple Sauce
"I made this yesterday and did not like it at all. The sauce was an odd grey color. I made it just the way the recipe is written. Garlic was also over powering and I like garlic. Smelled really good while it was cooking :)"
"DELICIOUS!!! I can't believe that nobody has tried or rated this! My husband has been walking around since I made this saying "There is not one thing that I didn't love about that recipe!" And I agree. It was so easy to make and it had so much flavor. Will be making again and again and again."
