Kale Salad with Quinoa and Cranberries

This hearty, fall Kale Salad with Quinoa and Cranberries is made even better by massaging the kale which helps break down the tough cell structure and gives the raw kale a softer texture and gentler flavor.

Stuffing Muffins

Do you cook your stuffing in the turkey, casserole dish, or stovetop? I prefer to bake mine separately from the turkey in the oven to avoid salmonella. Making stuffing in muffin tins is my favorite because the individual portions are great for portion control. If you make this stuffing alongside a turkey, pour some of the pan juices from the cooked turkey over the stuffing to make it moister – yum! You can also try Mom’s Stuffing and Chicken Sausage and Herb Stuffing for more twists on your traditional stuffing recipe.
