Cranberry Linzer Tart Recipe

Isn't this tart just beautiful? You know, as if you picked it up at a European bakery, one of those places where the pastries taste as good as they look?! But I make it and you can too! The crust is made with toasted almonds and – get this – pressed into the tart pan. That's right, no rolling! The recipe comes from a brand-new European tart cookbook published by my friend Helen, a long-time professional baker and the "goddess of pastry". You'll see, the cookbook omits the "hard" bakery recipes and instead features the "easy" bakery recipes that home cooks can handle with ease. Helen's cookbook has given me so much confidence, we're hosting a holiday dessert party this weekend! A Bakery-Beautiful Tart, Super-Easy for a Home Baker. Beautiful Color! No-Fuss Tart Dough Mixed in Food Processor and Pressed By Hand into Tart Pan. Extra Welcome at Festive Meals and Dessert Buffets During the Holidays. A New Addition to The Homemade Pantry ,

Easy Tortilla Soup with Chicken or Turkey

Hearty, homemade soup that's so-so easy, you barely have to cook. Just reach into the pantry for some healthy shelf-stable ingredients (canned beans, tomatoes, corn and green chiles;, a jar of salsa). Throw in some cooked turkey (hello, leftover Thanksgiving turkey) or cooked chicken (hello, rotisserie chicken) and a good measure of cumin for seasoning. Now slip it all into a slow cooker or slow-cook in the oven. It's the easiest supper you've made in a long while ... Real Food, Fresh & Family-Tested. Hearty & Filling. Budget Friendly. One-Pot Meal.

Oven-Baked Whole-Grain Pilaf with
Quinoa, Barley, Kamut and/or
Other Grains, Rices & Lentils

Is your pantry overrun with bits of whole grains? Mine too. Here's a way to use them all at once. The base recipe pairs two familiar grains (quinoa and barley) with one that may be new (kamut). But the great flexibility here is that the pilaf may be made with any blend of whole grains, rices and even lentils . It's all baked in the oven in a single dish, so easy, so colorful, so tasty. It even makes a great "whole food" food gift for the holidays! PS Would it make a great addition to the Thanksgiving table? Yes! An Easy, Healthy Side Dish, Another Kitchen Parade Concept Recipe.
