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 snuggle beneath a blan…

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 meat itself is opt…

At Last! Black Bean Soup Recipe

Cooked on the Stove or in a Slow Cooker or "Slow Cooked in the Oven"
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 and today is one of my "signature" recipes. It's super simple to make, just dried black beans, tomato, corn, potatoes and/or sweet potato and a touch of jalapeño. Some times I add ham hocks, other times I skip the meat for a vegan black bean soup that really lets the beans themselves stand out.


Budget-Friendly. Fresh & Seasonal, Perfect for Cold-Weather Meals. Easily not just vegan, Vegan Done Real. Very Weight Watchers Friendly. Naturally Gluten Free. High Protein. Great for Meal Prep. Freezes Well. Rave Reviews.

Turkey Sweet Potato Soup

One of my oldest recipes, a healthy colorful soup made with sweet potatoes and leftover turkey. It's like a bowlful of fall color.

Just three or four points! For everyone? A very tasty satisfying soup, a great way to return to "normal eating".I'm republishing this 2003 recipe because it's such and a great way to use up leftover Thanksgiving turkey.

The leaves are at their peak, dressed in their fall finery of russet and gold. The leaf tourists are about too, clogging the country roads and stopping for pie and coffee and a small-town welcome along the way. Here, the mums planted last year are in full flower. I think of th…
