My children have a certain fascination with blood oranges. They beg for them whenever we walk into the grocery store, and anxiously await a piece of peeled, mild, citrus when we get home.

If you're like our family, and will eat them any way you can get them, you'll love these 7 gorgeous recipes for blood oranges…from salads to desserts and everything in between! - By Brooke McLay
