Those sugared cranberries look and sound amazing for Thanksgiving and Halloween! I have so many favorite recipes but am always looking for new ones to try!
Loving this idea of having a contest for recipes because honestly? I am so at a loss when it comes to baking or even cooking great recipe options. I tend to do the same options all of the time and every year, this has inspired me to try something different 😉

Cant wait to check a bunch of these out! They look amazing and now Im starving!
I just bought some organic cranberries at Whole Foods, and I’ve been wondering what to do with them. I love your idea. Now I just have to come up with my own recipe!
Sugared cranberries are something I’ve never heard of. I will have to try these out and see if they are Qualls’ family worthy.
We are certainly getting some gorgeous recipes. Its great I know exactly where to go for this years holiday recipes.
I love new recipes to try and this is new to me! These look so yummy and the Cranberry Syrup would be amazing on Pancakes or in cocktails!

This is the year I do sugared cranberries! I love how they look on a fluffy white cake (or cupcakes) and swear I am going to make them every year.
So many excellent recipes have entered! Wow, great idea for a contest. Good luck to everyone who enters! #HomeMattersParty
