Instead of serving falafel in same-old pita bread, try this salad. Fresh herb and lemon flavours make it sing.
Pain Perdu with Maple Blueberry Sauce
So-named because it can be made with stale bread that would otherwise be lost (perdu), this dish is a brunch classic. It’s low fat as is, but you can dress it up by serving with whipped cream and fresh strawberries if you like.
Warm Goat Cheese and Arugula Salad
Warm salads provide a sense of occasion, maybe because we most often eat them at fine dining restaurants. Any night can be an occasion when you make this tangy-peppery salad for family and friends.
Mozzarella and Artichoke Pizza
White pizzas such as this are not tomato-based as are many pizzas and somehow seem more elegant. A rich, quick and easy appetizer.
Ricotta and Roasted Tomato Crostini
Making little toasts for crostini under the broiler is a bit fiddly, but this wire-rack oven method reduces the chances of burnt toast. Ricotta is a delicious and unusual topping.
Maple Balsamic Fig Salad with Goat Cheese Croquettes
In the winter, sweeter Mission figs are in season, in summer the less sweet green figs. Walnuts give this salad a bitter edge to balance the sweetness of the vinaigrette and figs.
Tropical Muffin Tops
Some folks think the tops are the best part of the muffin. For them, we offer this tropical fruit and nut recipe. A nice under 100 calorie snack, too!
Honeyed Strawberry Cakelettes
Here’s a new take on strawberry shortcake, perfect for those summer months when the berries are juicy, delicious and local.
Pot of Gold Cupcakes
A green-tinted treat for some lucky leprechauns. Boxed cake mix and a tub of frosting make them a snap.
We’ve simplified the lasagna-making process by soaking the noodles and using extra sauce when layering, instead of boiling the pasta. Hearty and bursting with vegetables, this is our best-ever vegetarian entrée recipe.
