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. This makes time for a morning twirl around the kitchen, a story-time snu

Saturday Soup

What to eat when your fridge is filled with nothing but bits of leftovers? Saturday Soup! It's my family's proven forumula for using up lots of bits of leftovers. 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

Turkey Sweet Potato Soup

Talk about a bowlful of fall color! This healthy, colorful soup is one of my oldest recipes, often made with leftover Thanksgiving turkey but also with the last of a rotisserie chicken, some leftover roasted chicken or, wow, chunks of smoked chicken. And it's extra easy to make, there's no need to even sauté the onion and celery before adding the rest of the ingredients. Just chop 'em up and cook 'em! The results? A very tasty, satisfying soup, a great way to return to "normal eating" after an indulgent holiday. Real Food, Fast from Scratch. Another Quick Supper , a Kitchen Parade Specialty. Hearty & Filling.

Pumpkin Bread Pudding

When picturing a Thanksgiving meal, my mind’s eye moves straight to the pumpkin pie, its crust golden and flaky, the filling tawny orange flecked with spicy brown. But some years, it’s good to part with tradition! Treat your family to this luscious bread pudding, if not for Thanksgiving then before or after. While it’s a bit homely looking, you’ll be licking the dish clean! The original recipe is what makes America obese: the portions were enormous and laden with fat and sugar! Even with half the calories and a third the fat, you’ll find the revised recipe generous and rich. ALANNA's TIPS Use fresh rather than stale bread – it will more easily soak up the pumpkin-infused egg and milk mixture. If the bread is crusty, think about removing the crust before tearing into cubes. For texture contrast, top with a few toasted pecans. If you bake ahead of time, reheat the pudding before serving. The sauce can easily be made in advance, then reheated. If you’ve wanted to expe
