  • 12 kumquats, very thinly sliced crosswise, seeds removed
  • 1 cup pomegranate seeds (from 1 pomegranate)
Combine the sugar, 2 cups water, the ginger and vanilla seeds and pod in a saucepan. Use a vegetable peeler to remove wide strips of zest from the lemon and 1 orange, add to the saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer 5 minutes. Refrigerate until cold. Meanwhile, peel the remaining oranges with a paring knife, cutting along the natural curve of the fruit. Hold an orange over a large bowl and cut along both sides of each membrane to free the segments, letting them fall into the bowl. Squeeze each empty membrane to release the juices. Repeat with the remaining oranges. Add the mangoes, bananas, kiwis, kumquats and pomegranate seeds and gently toss. Pour the syrup over the fruit and chill overnight, then serve!  This Winter Fruit Salad is very light and low in calories!! Enjoy! Happy Holidays!! xoxo

Herbed Quinoa and Red Rice Stuffing with Kale and Pine Nuts:
  • quinoa and red rice
  • water
  • kosher salt
  • unsalted butter
  • yellow onion
  • celery stalks
  • Tuscan kale
  • fresh oregano
  • spices
  • dried cranberries
  • pine nuts
  • lemon zest
  • chicken stock
  • shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
You start by cooking the quinoa and red rice, then you sauté the onion and celery once that has softened add in the kale, oregano and, spices. Once the kale has cooked down you add the cooked quinoa, red rice, and kale mixture to a large bowl then add in the cranberries, pine nuts, lemon zest and chicken stock and stir until well combined. Lastly, transfer the quinoa and red rice stuffing to a buttered baking dish and bake in the oven for 30 minutes. I like to finish it off by garnishing the stuffing with shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. I love this stuffing! It is so much lighter than traditional bread stuffing. This stuffing makes a perfect side dish in the fall and winter months. I also like eating this stuffing with a side salad of fresh leafy greens. This stuffing is easy, light, and decadent. I hope you like it!
