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.
This recipe has everything nutritionally great going on for it, including the natural goodness of plant-based fiber, replete with the perfect balance of herbs and seasonings. It makes a perfect meat-less burger that is still protein-rich and uniquely satisfying. These veggie burgers whip up quickly and freeze well for a quick snack, lunch or dinner and satisfying even the meat-eaters at your dinner table. Pair them with a hearty, multi-grain bun and all the fixins'. The cheese and eggs are optional in case you want your burger vegan. Tip: freshly made, fork mashed black beans are better (versus canned). They make the burgers chewy and extra hearty.
This is the dressing to go with falafel – the pita and chick pea snack food.
Lemons, Orange slices, dried fruit, tea – oh my – this is quite the compote. I serve it in a big glass dish and it is a lovely tradition of tea-infused dried fruits. In case you don't want superb Passover baking as your dessert, there is this lighter fare.
Who doesn’t love satays? They’re lite, easy to prepare ahead and often feature appetizing global flavors. These Thai themed shrimps-on-a-skewer can be a main dish or for a Mother’s Day luncheon, an appetizer to serve with lemon-coriander scented basmati rice and a tall glass of White Sangria. These can be prepared in the oven (using broiler), a non-stick skillet such as The Rock Ceramic, or on the BBQ. Use the metal seafood forks as skewers or if you prefer, use wood skewers (but pre-soak them first)
Golden egg bread, coconut, golden raisins, cream and tart cherry sauce in a heart-warming autumn dessert, diner style with cornucopia flair.
This paprika tinged cottage cheese spread depends on dry cottage cheese, aka hoop or baker’s cheese. If you cannot find it, drain ricotta or fine curd cottage cheese overnight through a paper-towel lined sieve set over a bowl. You can also use cream cheese but it is not quite the same but still very, very good. Montreal had a restaurant called the Pam Pam, known for lavish coffees, nut and cream filled cakes and these simple, but good sandwiches. Very few elements and yet – this is a memorable sandwich. People also use this filling as a dip.
How come you are so slim ? is what most pastry chefs want to hear. How I manage that is based on another one of my own creations (and it's not a cookie), the most sane diet I know and the only one that works!
Fried hotdogs? So good you’ll not want to share the technique. Score one of those super-sized kosher dogs. Deep fry (if you are baking French Fries – pop a couple of these in the oil). The dogs flare up and bulk in size – offering a crisp exterior and hot, juicy interior. Ballpark mustard, a fresh poppy seed roll and you’ve got game. A super 4th of July snack.

Nothing out of a box can touch this.I like the combination of Havarti and orange cheddar for this or use Monterey Jack and cheddar. A toasty, buttery crumb topping makes this cafeteria style classic. This reheats like a charm, freezes well but is sublime, fresh and bubbling from the oven with a green salad and grilled hot spiced sausages and Dijon mustard. Did I tell you it even helps you build strong bones? If you are out of breadcrumbs, use soda cracker crumbs.
