The health food store near me has this thick, sweet, brownies that use date paste as part of the whole deal. I tried it and voila -  a beautiful brownie with pure gourmet taste and pedigree but with a health food store sensibility. These are dense, sweet and fudgy and best served cold. For goodness sakes, please don't tell your kids these have flax seed and are butter-free or otherwise healthy. The dates are mellow and sweet and being dark in color, they amplify the chocolate bouquet. These are more cake brownies than chewy but they are so dense and dark and served very well chilled, they are almost fudge.

This is a velvety custard of a dessert cream sauce that slicks up cheesecake, chocolate tortes and is wonderful drizzled over baked apples or chilled pumpkin cheesecake or pumpkin pie.  Leave out the spices and bourbon for classic crème anglaise

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.

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.

This is brunch food, Saturday afternoon food, and Super Bowl football game watching food. If you-are-asked-to-bring something sort of stuff. Essentially, you are dumping a vegetable dip into a hollowed out rustic bread. The hollowed out bread bits are the ‘dippers’.Pretty as a picture and as quick as you please.

 A new spin on my legendary potato pancakes New Way Famous Potato Latkes. Sweet potatoes add vitamins and colour; the combination of gold and orange is simply beautiful.

Béchamel, 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 gone but the taste of this dish lingers on.

This recipe is just so sweet, including all the favorite flavor notes and textural perks of S’Mores bars, in a quickly assembled ice-box cake that is kid-approved and company perfect. S’mores are messy affairs but this cake serves up in (somewhat) neater slices. It is oh-so-good that I am almost embarrassed it is a no-bake wonder. It is….home-assembled! For nut allergies, do make sure to make these with peanut-free manufactured milk chocolate bars so that your allergy kids and friends can enjoy this too. This recipe is about layering stuff; how you do it doesn’t really much matter as long as you use up all the components.
Do check out the notes for the Ice-Cream S’Mores Bar Cake too, included in this recipe.

This is the dressing to go with falafel – the pita and chick pea snack food.
