Canadians love Tim Horton's and my daughter loves Tim Horton's Tomato Florentine Rice soup. This is my own "copycat" recipe and even if you've never had the real thing, I know that you will enjoy this soup!!
This savoury dish is very popular in Andalusia, Spain. You can use red pepper flakes (to your taste) in place of the hot pepper and any firm whitefish can be a substitute for the salmon. Great with rice and a green vegetable.
These "snack type" quesadillas can be assembled early in the day & baked later on. Great for snacking during the game - any game!! To do this, simply cover tightly with plastic wrap after step 2 & refrigerate for up to 6 hours.
I found this recipe by Lucy Waverman (a well known Toronto chef) in a publication about seasonal produce. It refrigerates well & stays fresh for days - if it lasts. The apples settle into a dark brown mass & cut like a cake. Serve with cinnamon or licorice ice cream for a perfect fall dessert!!
This was my favourite soup from the Bell Canada cafeteria; many years later, I found the recipe in a Soup & Starter cookbook! Its a good way to use up leftover roast beef (or lamb). If I don't have dripping on hand, I broil some bacon, use the bacon fat & eat the bacon!!
This is one of my favourite recipes for leftover roast beef - its delicious on a cold winter night!!If you don't have leftover beef, substitute with 1 lb of extra-lean ground beef, to be cooked with the onions. "Demi glace" or "au jus" can be found with the prepackaged gravies & sauces in the supermarket - you just won't get the same great flavour if you omit it!!
