Cranberry Glazed Turkey Breast with Wild Rice Pilaf
This cranberry-glazed turkey breast recipe, which uses a split bone-in turkey breast, is the perfect thing to make if you’re serving a smaller crowd or if everyone wants white meat. The wild rice pilaf recipe is delicious on its own so you can make it even if you don’t prepare the turkey……..

Stuffed Pork Loin and Pineapple
You’ll want to use fresh pineapple, not canned, in this recipe calling for the classic flavor combo of pork and pineapple. Grilling both the fruit and the meat imparts a pleasant smokiness to both………….

Herbed-Lemon Turkey with Wild Mushroom Gravy
Dried cherries and sage tucked under the skin of the turkey breast give each serving a hint of sweetness mixed with a fabulous herb flavor…………

Thai Pineapple Stir-Fried Rice
Colorful and luscious, this Thai restaurant classic can be made easily at home.

Recipe Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups raw long-grain brown rice
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, quartered and sliced
2 cups small broccoli florets
2 medium carrots, sliced

1 teaspoon curry powder
2 teaspoons minced fresh or jarred ginger

Cooking Directions:
1 – Combine the rice with 3 cups water in a saucepan. Bring to a rapid simmer, then cover and simmer gently until the water is absorbed, 30 to 35 minutes.
2 – Shortly before the rice is done, heat the oil in a stir-fry pan or extra-wide skillet. Add the onion and sauté over medium heat until golden.
3 – Add the broccoli, carrots, and bell pepper. Turn the heat up to medium-high and stir-fry for 3 minutes or so, just until the vegetables are tender-crisp.
4 – Add the scallions, tomatoes, and pineapple chunks and continue to stir-fry for just a minute or two, just until the tomatoes soften slightly.
5 – Stir in the cooked rice, then add the coconut milk, curry powder, soy sauce, and ginger. Stir gently until all the ingredients are completely combined. Serve at once, passing around chopped cashews to top individual servings, if desired.
