Recipe for Holiday Fruit Parfait with
Yogurt, Cranberries, Applesauce, Pineapple & Kiwi

Prepare to behold one of the prettiest dishes ever! Imagine jewel-colored layers of cranberry and applesauce, golden pineapple and yogurt lined with iridescent kiwi slices. It does indeed look impressive but is easy as can be to assemble! This colorful fruit medley was a hit at a holiday brunch last year. “This is really good,” a friend raved. Another friend at first seemed to disagree. “No way,” she said and then continued, “This is really, REALLY good.”Everyone at the table nodded, surprised at the unusual combination of tart cranberry, sweet fruit and creamy yogurt.And it looks as good as it tastes! The kiwi shines like exotic green glass against the pale yogurt and ruby-colored cranberry. “No way,” my friend might have responded, “This is really, REALLY beautiful.”Prepared in advance, the fruit salad is also perfect for Christmas morning, perhaps served with fruity muffins or cinnamon buns.

Saturday Soup

It's rarely pretty but it's usually surprisingly tasty – and best of all, food waste drops to nil. Thanksgiving leftovers are the best! But if a week’s gone by and your fridge still holds turkey bounty, chances are, everyone’s ready to move on.SATURDAY SOUP is a terrific way to use up leftovers all year round. Make it regularly and you’ll find yourself saving tiny bites of leftovers (sometimes in a designated container in the fridge or freezer) that might otherwise go to waste.As a kid, we threw a batch together for Saturday lunch, cleaning out the fridge before Mom headed to the store to pick up the next week’s groceries. Because the leftovers changed every week, two pots rarely tasted the same, except for being both reliably delicious and completely unrepeatable! ALANNA's TIPS Bacon meat itself is opt…

At Last! Black Bean Soup Recipe

Have you ever looked and looked (and looked?!) for the perfect way to make a certain something? At Last! Black Bean Soup became my "only" black bean soup recipe, gracious! more than 20 years ago now. The recipe originated with the late writer Laurie Colwin and has become one of my "signature" recipes.
COMPLIMENTS!
"This is now my favourite!" ~ mym(e)
In the seven years I masqueraded as a Texan, I looked and looked (and looked) for a great black bean soup to make at home. After several uninspiring batches, at last! I came upon this recipe, one worth making and adapting again and again.The original recipe came from Laurie Colwin, the food and fiction writer who died too young in 1992. She wrote a monthly column for Gourmet magazine where I was a brand-new reader. Sadly, she was already gone by the time I discovered her but since she wrote ahead, her columns continued to appear after her death. I read each one with building sadness, knowing the columns would …
