We all love butternut squash, especially when it's at the height of season. In the fall, this is an easy dish to dress up a simple roast chicken or pork. We cook the squash then put it in our favourite baking dish with a topping of crunchy breadcrumbs and Guyere cheese. This is serious fall comfort food at it's best.
Imagine a crepe and an omelette had a love child and covered it with a tangy salad. Intrigued? Dutch baby is like a giant puffy pancake— part popover, part soufflé and all delicious. Making it feels a bit like a magic trick since you put a pan of liquid batter into the oven and in no time it blooms up into a crispy, golden puffball (kids will happily sit in front of the oven glass and watch its progress with awe).
Dutch baby is also like a distant but beloved cousin of the cheddar soufflé in my first book. It’s easier and faster than soufflé, though, and while it’s not as luxurious, it’s still incredibly tasty and satisfying. And since it always looks like a salad bowl to me, I add greens and make it true!
I don't know too many kids that don't love tacos. It's the perfect meal for picky eaters to more sophisticated palates. This recipe uses our Mythic Mole Seasoning Rub to replace the salt-laden pre-packaged seasoning blends many people use. But we also give you a recipe for making your own blend too.
This Mother's Day is certainly unlike many other's we may have celebrated in the past. Many of us are unable to be with our children or parents but hopefully we will be able to connect virtually, socially distanced or by sending warm thoughts to the person who has been there for many of our firsts. This simple breakfast is easy for the kids to put together and serve mom, breakfast in bed!
We've all been immersed in these crazy times for over 6 weeks and we have to admit, it's starting to take it's toll. On top of all of this, Donna-Marie is also in the process of moving her home of 24 years. She and her husband are downsizing, so cleaning out the freezer is doubly important. She pulled together this chili for a weeknight meal with what she had in her pantry, refrigerator and freezer. For a vegan version, skip the meat and dairy topppings and substitute more vegetables such as mushrooms and eggplant.
