Fresh Cranberries (A Recipe Round-Up!)

Be sure and check out our GIVEAWAY while you're here.

It's funny to me now, but I used to be very intimidated by fresh cranberries. I think that's probably because I didn't grow up ever seeing or using them. For Thanksgiving and Christmas my mom always made sure to have a can of cranberry sauce available for those who wanted, but never because she liked it. It was one of those things, like pumpkin pie or turkey, you just had to have it or someone would feel like it wasn't really a holiday dinner. 

Now, I can't get enough of fresh cranberries. I love putting them in smoothies, using them in baked goods, mixing them with my morning oatmeal, or any other way I can think to enjoy them.

I decided to ask my fellow food bloggers for their favorite recipes, using fresh cranberries. This is what we came up with. Enjoy!

    should do the trick. Watch out, it's addictive!
