Exotic sweet ‘n’ sour flavours are dynamite with tomatoes. This is the way to use up tomatoes that have reached their juicy prime. Fabulous as a side dish with grilled steak or butterflied leg of lamb or chops. Or try as a burger topper. Best eaten the same day they’re made. From Chatelaine Magazine. Enjoy!
In Morocco, tajines, or stews, are made in shallow earthenware cooking pots called tajines. In this version, you use a Crock-Pot to produce a mellow yet intensely flavoured meat-and-vegetable mixture with a tender texture and enticing aroma. So, let it simmer away while you’re at work or play. See below for fun additions. From Chatelaine Magazine. Enjoy!
If you like hummus, give this one a try. It's still has the flavours of traditional hummus but the twists of Moroccan cuisine and the surprise of tomato! heating the ingredients also adds another tasty dimension to hummus.

Who says that recipes have to be complicated to be amazing? This one will prove that it doesn't! Try it on chicken or really any other meat. Great for grilled veggies too! You only have to remember to use equal parts of each spice to make this. This is a Chatelaine magazine recipe. Enjoy!
The beauty of the dish is it uses only 4 ingredients and builds up into a superb, tasty salad. The key with this is to use the best quality ingredients! Ideal for those summer days when you need something juicy & crunchy to spike you up. A Robin Benzle recipe. Enjoy!
Oh my goodness, Emeril has done it again! Try this delicious sauce on ice cream, in milk or whip up a great milkshake with some vanilla ice cream! This syrup is dairy-free so you can use soy milk, etc. when making things with it.
This recipe is using Recipe #503970 and can be made in no time. You can marinate the shrimp all day if you want to get intense spicy flavour. Don't want to grill? Cook them under the broiler, being careful to make sure they don't burn. Great served on a salad or over rice. Enjoy!

Quick, tasty, delicious! This BHG recipe was originally listed with Recipe #492573 but would be great with pretty much anything. A friend of mine recommended freezing big dollops of whipped cream to have them handy for hot drinks. Enjoy!
Caprese salad is one of my favourites - it's so simple and celebrates great, fresh ingredients. I wanted to use chicken and had the ingredients for caprese salad so I decided to mix the two! It makes its own wonderful sauce, just using a few ingredients. We had this chicken dish with some simple buttered pasta. Enjoy!
Did you know that vanilla is the second most expensive spice after saffron? That's what I just read anyway! After chatting with a lady at the spice store, I came up with something to do with the vanilla pods, after you scrape out all of the yummy seeds. No need to waste the flavour that the pods hold. Use this in coffee, sprinkle on top of whipped cream, etc. This would be a beautiful gift in an attractive glass jar. I did not include the 1+ week sitting time. Enjoy!
My boys go back to school tomorrow and I wanted to be prepared by having some food that they can grab on their way out. This is what I ended up with and they are moist and really good! My boys are teens so I made this recipe for the great big muffins, but adjust the time and amounts and you can make smaller ones. Also, you can exclude the raisins and replace them with nuts if you prefer. Enjoy!
I enjoy Momaphet's Recipe #234424 but I was out most of the day. I made this into a crock pot dish so I wouldn't have to watch it and it wouldn't overcook! It turned out very moist and flavourful and the mix of herbs was great! PLEASE NOTE - you do not need to brown the chicken or make the gravy - but the extra touches are darn good! I am thrilled to have a crock pot that has a thermometer and just keeps the meat warm when it's fully cooked. It comes in very handy! Made for ZWT8, Enjoy!
