This yogurt and quinoa breakfast dish from nutritionist Cynthia Sass's "Cinch!" cookbook gets an extra boost of nutrition from a surprising source: cinnamon. The flavorful spice contains four times as many antioxidants as a handful of blueberries.

These simple, striking parfaits are the kind of dessert that wows guests but requires barely more effort than cutting fruit. Ripe watermelon cubes and coconut sorbet taste delicious (and look gorgeous) together, needing only pinches of lime zest for a tropical inflection and toasted coconut for crunch.
The great thing about these parfaits is that they can be assembled and ready in no time. Don't worry if you don't have the exact ingredients called for; any type of cookie and ice cream you have on hand can work wonderfully together.Recipe courtesy of Emeril Lagasse, "Emeril 20-40-60 Fresh Food Fast," HarperStudio Publishers, New York, 2009, courtesy Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Inc.
