Apple Braised Pork with Whole Wheat Spatzle

Braising is the ultimate comfort food. This method takes a cheap, tough cut of pork and turns it into a magical stew. You wont believe how simple the spätzle noodles are to make, they’re the perfect way to soak up the juices from the pork.

Acorn Squash with Applesauce

Every fall when locally grown squash and apples appear in the farmers market I make this dish. It shows how well ingredients that grow together go together. That’s why it tastes so good!

Southwestern Corn Soup With Red Peppers

Many of the bright flavours of the southwest are found in this distinctively thick soup. Many cooks in that region toss toasted corn tortillas into a simmering broth where they break down and thicken the liquid. I realized I could simply jump-start the process by using cornmeal, the flour the tortillas are made from.

Polenta

Polenta

A bowl full of freshly made corn polenta is one of the world’s great grain dishes. Polenta is a traditional Italian pudding thickened with cornmeal. Freshly made, it has a soft, creamy, addictively delicious texture. It can also be served by cooling and hardening it, then slicing it and grilling or pan-searing it until it forms a beautiful crispy crust with a creamy interior.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Every kitchen needs a gold standard recipe for chocolate chip cookies. This one has earned its stripes under fire, over many seasons, through countless licked spoons, spilled vanilla and extra chips in the batter. Its quick baking time is the key to addictively chewy cookies that friends and family won’t be able to resist.

Brown Butter Mashed Potatoes

There are as many ways to flavour mashed potatoes as there are cooks. These are my gold standard. They’re simple, with a twist: brown butter. You won’t believe how much flavour is locked into a stick of butter, but you will believe these are the best mashed spuds you’ve ever had.

Power Smoothies

A well-crafted smoothie tastes so good you’ll forget it’s good for you! It’s one of my favourite ways to fill a glass with energy, nutrients and flavour. Use it to kick off your day - everyday - with the goodness of fruit. At heart, it’s just flavoured fruit puree so it’s easy to make. It’s also easy to jazz up with other healthy goodies like flax seed oil, yogurt or berries.

Roast Potato Salad

Roast Potato Salad

Roasting adds flavour to just about anything - including mellow potatoes headed for a salad. The sharp flavours of capers, mustard and vinegar really perk them up. This is a popular dish at my family summer beach picnics but it’s great in the middle of the winter too!

Grilled Vegetable Skewers

Grilled Vegetable Skewers

A grilled vegetable skewer is one of the best ways I know to get kids to eat vegetables - especially when they’re marinated in a tasty herb vinaigrette. Just about any veggie will grill nicely, so use your imagination and get ready for empty plates.
