Appetizer and dip variations.
Light, green and savory- a perfect spring side at Passover or any other time.
Bechamel, Parmesan, Gruyere and Black Forest Ham or Turkey, all stacked high between tender crepes. Bake it in the oven, cut in wedges to serve. A signature brunch dish. There are many renditions of this dish but this is an amalgamation of the one I had growing up at a ski restaurant in the Quebec Laurentiens. The restaurant is long gone but the taste of this dish lingers on - It's a great hospitality casserole, especially during the fall/winter holidays.
State fairs serve stuff like this and I knew I had to make a home version. Cheesy, creamy cheddar Mac is fried to a crisp fritter consistency. Serve with sea salt and hot sauce. It all starts with a great homemade Mac and cheese recipe.
This is compote for spreading on pound cake or when you want a few sweet spoonfuls of a sweet chaser to finish a meal. This is one of those recipes that should be a side dish but ends up being the legend that made the meal it was made for. It is deep wine red in color, courtesy of the cherries and Italian plums, sweet and tart and utterly sublime. Yes, of course it goes on ice-cream. Or anoint it with some crème anglaise. It calls for orange juice but if you had cherry brandy around that would do nicely too.
A classic that takes simple ingredients to produce the ultimate comfort food. Just make sure you use a heavy bottom pot so there’s no scorching. The creamed coconut comes in a can and can be found in Asian or Indian markets or most supermarkets. It adds a wonderful creamy taste that is not too coconut-y but mostly offers a velvety texture. The trick to this is a slow simmer but the reward is indescribable.
This is a coating for soft white cheeses such as chevre. It spruces up a bland white cheese and invites crackers and slices of baguettes. Use extra to add to sour cream as a dip seasoning. If you doubled or tripled this recipe, jarred it up and gifted it, you would have a fine gourmet gift to tote to the next dinner party.
Cabbage rolls are to cold weather, what garlic is to vampires.

Usually we think of apples when we think of an old-fashioned crisp but ripe, sweet autumn pears are wondrous in this dish. Just use rip flavorful pears such as Bosc or Anjou or a combination of a few pear varieties. A touch of cranberries brings some added to colour and a light touch of spice makes this a portrait in sensuous fall flavors.
