Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F and wash and dry all produce. Peel, then cut potatoes into 1-inch pieces. Combine potatoes, 2 tsp salt and enough water to cover (approx. 3-4 inches) in a large pot. (NOTE: Use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium. Simmer, uncovered, until fork-tender, 12-14 min. Meanwhile, thinly slice the chives. Juice the orange. Remove ribs from packaging and reserve excess BBQ sauce left over in package.
Heat a small pot over high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil, then cranberries, orange juice and 1 tbsp brown sugar (dbl for 4 ppl). Once mixture is bubbling, cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 5-6 min. Remove from heat. Stir in reserved BBQ sauce. Set aside.
Pat the ribs dry with paper towels, then sprinkle over Holiday Spice Blend. Add ribs to a foil-lined baking sheet. Roast ribs in middle of oven, until heated through, 10-12 min.**
Cut stems off beans. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then beans. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 4-5 min. Season with salt and pepper.
When potatoes are fork-tender, drain and return to the same pot, off heat. Using a masher, mash in sour cream and chives until smooth (dbl for 4 ppl). Season with pepper. Divide the mash, ribs and beans between plates. Serve with cranberry BBQ sauce for dipping.
Before starting, preheat the oven to 400°F. Finely chop walnuts. Add cinnamon, walnuts, chocolate chips and remaining brown sugar to a small bowl. Stir to combine. Unroll the puff pastry (NOTE: 2 pastry for 4 ppl), then sprinkle over the sugar mixture, leaving 1/2-inch border on each long end. Starting at the long end, roll up the puff pastry to form a log. Cut into 8 even pieces (NOTE: 16 pieces for 4 ppl). Transfer each, cut-side up, to a lightly buttered 8x8-inch baking dish (NOTE: Use 9x13-inch for 4 ppl). Bake in middle of oven, until pastry is puffed and golden-brown, 28-30 min.
