This Greek spin on the classic baked rice casserole calls for shrimp, but chicken can also be used. Cut three large boneless chicken breasts into cubes and brown first in oil in a hot skillet before adding to cooked rice. If you plan on doubling the recipe, use 2 1/2 cups (625 mL) rice and only 4 1/2 cups (1.125 L) stock.

Does anyone else adore Food and Drink Magazine? This recipe is right out of there, by Chef Jennifer MacKenzie.
The crust can be baked a day ahead but the pie is best assembled just a few hours before serving and refrigerated. Garnish with the candied walnuts just before serving.
Prep time includes chill time
You can prepare 2 different tastes from 1 filling, which means you can please both vegetarians and seafood lovers at the same time. These tarts should be frozen if you are packaging them as they are fragile. They should also be refrigerated if not eaten right away. A great partner for a well-balanced dry white wine. Cheesecakes can be refrigerated for up to 2 days or frozen. Recipe created by Chef Jill Snider of Ontario.
By Jennifer Mackenzie of Food and Drink, who says: The sunny summer flavours of roasted peppers and juicy peaches give new life to this favourite appetizer. Try the bruschetta mixture on grilled fish or chicken, too. Assemble just before serving for the best texture or, serve the toasts on a platter with the topping in a bowl and allow guests to build their own.
Another winner from Lucy Waverman, who says:
"Orzo is pasta shaped like rice. It cooks quickly and doesn't go mushy. I prefer the feta to be Greek but any will do."
It's super fast, and quite filling.
We loved this, hope you do too! :)
A tortino is like an oven-baked frittata. It is easy to prepare and makes a good supper or lunch dish served on its own. The vegetables used can vary with the seasons. This is another Lucy Waverman recipe from Food and Drink.
This zesty salad complements salmon’s richness while almonds add crunch. The fish can be served hot or cold as a light main course. To serve it as a hearty starter for a meal, cut fish fillets in half lengthwise before grilling. If serving salmon cold, grill right away. If serving hot, make salad first.
