Pomegranates are in season for Fall, and POM Wonderful makes them super easy to incorporate into your favorite dishes, according to Lifestyle Expert Bahar Takhtehchian. For super convenience, try POM POM Fresh Pomegranate arils. They come in a convenient canister; a ready-to-eat 4.3 ounce, 100 calorie-snack. Or use them in your favorite dishes and cocktails to add a burst of color and a beautiful red accent that's full of antioxidants and fiber.
Another great in-season fruit treat: Halos mandarins. "Seedless, juicy and easy to peel so they're great for salads or if you're encouraging kids to eat more fruits," says Takhtechian. Bonus: Create an elegant and colorful centerpiece with them.
Another way to wow guests? Incorporating truffles whenever you can. DaRosario Organic has an impressive line of 100 % real truffle products such as oil, butter and honey. "What makes them stand out is they use 100% real truffles that are USDA certified. Some competition uses artificial alternatives. Instead, these are super for any one who loves to cook and also make the perfect hostess gift," says the expert.
And if you're feeling overwhelmed by your holiday schedule, don't fret. Cook your dishes ahead of time and freeze them in Oxo Glass Bakewear. It allows you to bake, store and serve your favorite foods in the same thermal shock-resistant glass containers that let you take your dishes from the freezer to a pre-heated oven without having to thaw the food. Choose from a 14 piece set for $69.99 or individual pieces between $8.99 and $18.99.
