Delicious Cranberry Recipes

I have decided that cranberries are my absolute favorite fruit. I just love them, whether it's jellied cranberries at Thanksgiving, dried cranberries in a salad, or cranberries in desserts. They're sweet and tangy and just delicious! My boys also have a love of cranberries and between the both of them, they can go through a bag of dried cranberries very quickly!  With cranberries being in season now, I wanted to share some yummy cranberry recipes with you!
