A herb filled, mouth-wateringly tender tart is home to a zesty filling. This is as sophisticated as you expect from quiche but as fun and flavorful as a pizza.

A pull-apart yeasted coffee cake that is a classic. Make the dough in the bread machine and finish up by hand.  Basically, balls of dough are dipped in butter and sugar before being piled up in a pan. They rise, they fuse, they baked into a little bit of heaven.

There’s just a bit of spice in these unbelievably tender, crisp, light, simply amazing waffles or shown here, pancakes. If the beautiful golden hue doesn’t seduce you, the flavour will be your undoing. One of the best recipes to come out of my test kitchen and that says a lot.

Serve a basket of these at your next turkey dinner, or as a dessert, with homemade apple sauce or vanilla custard. Or use these as the basis of a breakfast sandwich with turkey sausage, egg and cheese. A great tail-gate snack would be these, split, smeared with Dijon mustard and filled with a few slices of smoked turkey. You can also use pureed sweet potatoes for these amazing biscuits.

I think anytime is the right time for a soda bread, especially one with the goodness of pumpkin and spice. This recipe is easy and quick and you wind up with a gorgeous-hued giant rustic bread, fragrant with spice and bursting with plump raisins. Fresh or toasted, this is a soda bread that hits one out of the park.

A comfort food classic that is so good you'll want these both weekend days, causing you to wonder if like Bill Murray of Ground Hog Day movie fame, you're living the same breakfast twice? Worst things can happen. Pancakes or waffles are just the thing for a brunch or a lazy morning. Saco Cultured Buttermilk Blend (or soured milk, or diluted yogurt can replace the buttermilk). For a sweeter milk pancake, use regular milk and forget the baking soda. I add a touch of corn flour and malt to this recipe but if you don't have either - they're still delicious.


This makes a unique loaf style quiche that is quite tasty. Not your regular "ladies who lunch" fare. Serve it hot, warm or cold, with a homemade or store-bought salsa.

Instead of Rice Crispies, why not raisin bran cereal for a change?  That offers a bit more fiber and in a bar, you have a quick snack that stops hunger pangs fast.

What do you get when you cross a muffin with a scone? Scuffins! Big, beautiful crusty scones/muffin hybrids, crisp, pastry outsides with cake-like interiors and a cache of raspberry preserves. Whipping cream makes them high-rising and the cache of raspberries are a nice surprise.

Isn't Hanukah the time to make something special? Isn't cheese a traditional Hanukah food? Come on. Go for it! This really makes any sort of Danish you want. It is a superlative (and easy) real, butter, real Danish Dough – the sort delis and bakeries used to make. As family bakeries bit the dust and/or bakers started scrimping and the buttery (and best) part of Danish began to disappear, the need to make it yourself became clear. This is so outstanding. Why? It tastes like the real McCoy(stein), the dough is supple and a pleasure to work with, the taste is incomparable; the fine delicate/bready pastry is addictive.  You can fill this with the sweetened cheese filling called for here or make it with chocolate or cinnamon smear, or prune or apricot filling. (Recipes for the Chocolate or Cinnamon Smear Danish are in the Complete Recipe Archives; prune or apricot fillings also in the archives or you can opt for a quality prepared filling). Aside from this amazing dough, real bakery style Danish calls for a brushing or two of syrup (it’s included in this recipe) as well as (but this part is optional), apricot glaze. This makes the not-too-sweet pastry just a touch sweeter but also keeps it fresher longer and offers that stickiness you are going to have to lick off your hands once the Danish is a memory. I make batches of this dough and freeze it – which you can do or freeze the whole pastry (a large one or smaller ones) and let it rise in the fridge and bake it fresh for a brunch, breakfast or coffee klatch the next day. If you wonder if real Danish is hard to do, don't. It's easy. If you wonder why do it? Because...where are you going to find real Danish, with real butter, anywhere, anymore. Baker's cheese is also called hoop cheese, dry cottage cheese, old-fashioned cottage cheese. If you cannot find it, use ricotta cheese well drained (overnight, cheesecloth/strainer deal).
