Bacon OkonomiyakiChef Michael Olson shares his Okonomiyaki recipe from his cook book "Living High off the Hog". It's a Japanese cabbage pancake cooked on a griddle, topped with a delicious sweet sauce, kewpie mayonnaise and bacon!
Pumpkin Panna Cotta with Toasted PecansPanna cotta is an Italian dessert that translates to “cooked cream”. Infinitely variable and can be made a day ahead. In this Thanksgiving version we’ve used canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice. Using gelatin leaves provides a beautifully silky texture.
Apple CakeThis recipe originated from the Budget Cutters Cookbook that appeared in The London Free Press in November 1982. It was a recipe from Mrs. Gordon H. Willert of Thedford. I always fall back on this recipe when I’m in a hurry. I particularly like it because it only uses one bowl to mix the batter and it produces a flavourful, dense, moist cake. This is a good recipe when apples are in season.
Chicken ProvençalIn under an hour, Jill's Chicken Provençal recipe elevates just a handful of ingredients into a sublime classic. It's a great option for informal entertaining or a quick midweek family dinner (and is tested to work perfectly in our 20th anniversary oval casserole!).
Pasta Salad with Carrot Top PestoPerfect for the time of year when bunches of fresh local carrots appear on market stands, inevitably accompanied by their beautiful bushy green tops.
Ran’s Basic PaellaChef Ran prepared this hearty dish to highlight the Staub 'One-Pan Wonder' Collection. Be sure to try it out!
Fire in the Kitchen Meatball DinnerPerfect at any time of year! Fire In The Kitchen spices are the secret to a truly next-level meatball. We used "3 Alarm" for a zesty kick. Or for that BBQ taste without any grilling, try them with "Smoke Eater".
Jill’s Egg SaladMemories of Jill's mom are the inspiration behind this classic sandwich recipe!
Jill’s RatatouilleA Rustic French Classic. Stemming from the Provence region of France, this hearty country dish is a mélange of Mediterranean vegetables. Paired to perfection with bread, pasta and rice!
Blueberry Coffee CakeThe following blueberry coffee cake is a great recipe to use local blueberries. It’s not that blueberries are just so delicious and fresh and can be enjoyed with your breakfast or turned into a multitude of desserts — they also freeze well and their shelf life is much longer than many other berries.
Peach Thyme LoafWith an abundance of local peaches in store in August, this is the perfect time to try this loaf! A bit of thyme added to the recipe provides a unique and savoury flavour.
Potato and Cauliflower GratinGive your family holiday feasts a delicious twist with this classic potato gratin that adds sweet potato and cauliflower topped with breadcrumbs and cheese. Yum!
Cauliflower Mac and CheeseIt may not be the healthiest but nothing transports you back to being a kid like creamy mac and cheese. Plus, get your veggie fix by adding cauliflower.
Decadent Dark Chocolate TartMary MacLeod's Butterscotch Shortbread Crumbs makes the tart crust very buttery and Callebaut Dark Chocolate makes the filling smooth and rich.
Kale Pineapple Smoothie ~ Variation 1Start your day off on a healthy note with an energy boosting green smoothie. Many modifications can be made to this recipe depending what you have on hand.
Chocolate Date Energy BallsSuper easy and no-bake. Bite sized and full of wholesome ingredients, these energy balls are the perfect treat!
Caesar Potato SaladA new take on an old classic. This creamy potato salad is a great addition to any summer barbecue.
Salad NicoiseHailing from Nice, France, salad niçoise (pronounced "nee-suaz") is a protein-rich, composed salad made with raw vegetables, canned tuna and more!
Rhubarb Coffee CakeSpring treats. Enjoy ribbons of juicy pink rhubarb topped with a sweet streusel. This cake is perfect for spring brunch, snack time or dessert.
Chocolate Mocha Pots de CrèmeThis French classic has been around since the 17th century. By adding espresso, you take the already decadent dessert to a whole new level. The perfect ending to any meal.
Panna CottaA simple dessert with a 'wow' factor. Panna cotta is a traditional Italian dessert that translates directly to "cooked cream".
Maple Walnut PieTap into your sweet tooth with a maple dessert. Spring in Canada means lots of maple syrup is flowing and this is just one way to use it in an indulgent dessert.
Jill’s Pasta alla PuttanescaThis robust Italian dish originated in Naples. It features black olives, anchovies, capers and lots of garlic. A pinch of red chile flakes adds a subtle heat. This is one of our favourite quick pasta dinners.
Lemon and Shrimp PastaImpress guests with this herb filled pasta salad. Add some black olives in step 1 to change it up!
