Last week on our Weekend Cook and Tell we asked all of you to consider the cranberry. We wondered why this tart little fruit has been relegated to Thanksgiving and rarely sees the light of the kitchen any other day of the year. For our cranberry challenge we wanted to see just how creative all of you could get with cranberries. Here's a peek at your sweet-tart creations.

Chutneys and relishes are fine and dandy but this year dbcurrie is drinking her cranberries by way of this Vodka Infused with Cranberries and Cloves.

honeybaby789's go-to cranberry dessert is Smitten Kitchen's Cranberry Vanilla Coffee Cake. Easy to throw together, honeybaby789 makes it a little too often.

Taking advantage of another cold weather fruit somaR put up a few jars of Spiced Cranberry Apple Chutney spiked with black peppers, cloves, ginger, and chile.

mangotomato's cranberry love knows no bounds, just take a look at her Challah French Toast stuffed with Boozy Cranberries, Brown Rice with Maitakes, Beets, and Cranberries, and Cranberry, Walnut, and Chocolate Tart.

A Pilaf of Wild Rice with Mushrooms, Cranberries, and Walnuts is a holiday must for The Primlani Kitchen, not just for Thanksgiving.

LizzyM mixed her cranberries with all sorts of grainy goodness for Wild Rice with Caramelized Onions and Cranberries with healthy combo of quinoa and amaranth.
