    My entry into the 2009 Canadian Living Magazine Cook of the Year Contest. The recipe did not make the cut, but it is tasty and certainly worthy of sharing. You will note the absence of salt and/or pepper. I am thinking there is sufficient sodium and seasonings in the Teriyaki sauce and Dijon Mustard to justify eliminating additional seasoning from the recipe.... Salt/Sodium should never overpower other ingredients. If additional salt is requested, by all means, do provide it, but suggest that they taste first, and salt second. Pork Tenderloin can be purchased from your local supermarket in packages of two tenderloins, weighing approximately one kilo. This is usually sufficient for a dinner serving 4. This recipe was originally developed to serve 8; you will therefore require two packages of pork tenderloin - 2 loins per package..... As they say in Ontario "PUT PORK ON YOUR FORK".

    Recipe #380611

    A Canadian Living hit with the Ontario ZAARians, at our Annual Appy-fest. While this recipe actually calls for mild Italian sausge I used Bajan-seasoning called Delish-Dish in a meatball stuffing. I doubt that many ZAARians have "Bajan Delish-Dish" in their pantry.To stay true to the original recipe, therefore, I shall post the recipe as it appears in Canadian Living.. I like the recipe because of the ease with which ingredients combine to produce an interestingly flavourful filling. Can be used as a main course, or appetiser.

    From the Summer issue of It's All Fresh. Barbecuing Tip: Don’t forget to give your barbecue a good brush before attempting to cook any dessert. You don’t want your pound cake to taste like chicken and ribs or olive oil and garlic basted steak. I don’t want you to come knocking at my door with pound cake tasting like chicken fried “whatever” demanding compensation. If you are a barbecuing enthusiast (like me), you will have lots of grilling toys that will not touch the barbecue grill, still give you beautiful results and not fail to Wow your guests with a Start to Finish Meal, Outdoors. You deserve respect for your efforts. We started our barbecue party with recipe #307670. Here, then is the dessert.

    Recipe #308343

    Cedar, Oak and/or Maple planks are increasingly popular use in food preparation. In particular, BBQ Grilling. Personally, I love planking on my barbeque, and do it frequently. This latest presentation is worthy of sharing with all of ZAAR. From the Summer Issue of “It’s All Fresh”, Cedar Planked Brie recipe is guaranteed to kick start any party. Beautiful and colourfully presented with fresh raspberries, apricot preserves and thyme. Before attempting to barbeque with planks, be sure to follow the instructions for preparing the planks. This is imperative, because you don’t want a full scale wood fire in your barbeque… especially if you are using GAS. Careful use and attention will assure a successfully barbequed dinner from main course to dessert. You will smile proudly, and your guests will love you. Preparing the BBQ Grilling plank: You will require just enough cold water to completely submerge the grilling plank for at least one hour…Keep the plank submerged by placing a jar of pickles or a rock on it… Follow the safety instructions on plank label for proper usage and handling. Grilling planks cannot normally be reused. One side will be too charred, and you will be really upset with me for not warning you. Serve as an appetizer, or main item for your wine and cheese party. If you are like me, serve it "just because". Preparation time includes pre-heating Barbeque. You will need one BBQ Grilling Plank (oak, maple or cedar)

    Recipe #307670

    Every year, The Dairy Farmers of Canada sponsor the printing and distribution of (what Canadians affectionately call) The Milk Calendar. Each page, starting with December of the previous year (in case you missed it), is a beautiful photograph, in colour, of a recipe for the month, and the applicable recipe neatly printed beside the photo. This year (2008), I started in December, because I love to bake "loaves" and this loaf is particularly appealing. Quoting directly, they say: "Moist, studded with fruit and nuts and made in one bowl - what more can you ask? A slice of this sweet loaf is perfect with a cup of tea or cafe latte..." Cooking Tip: *To sour Milk, spoon 2 tbsp (30 mL) lemon juice or white vinegar into measuring cup; pour in enough Milk to make 1 1/2 cups (375mL). Let it stand for 5 mins. then stir. For the Adventurous: replace half the cranberries with chopped dried apricots and use hazelnuts instead of almonds. Healthy Eating Tip: Don't deprive yourself of delicious baked goods over the holiday season. Forbidden foods will tantalize you all the more. Instead, choose modest-sized servings and savour the flavour. Allergy alert: If there is an aversion to nuts, simply eliminate the nuts and increase cranberries, or add raisins, or other chopped, dried fruit. You will like the combination. Butter substitution: Margarine, Vegetable Oil; Olive Oil: Unsweetened Apple Sauce, in the same measurement

    Recipe #301922

    A Poussin (poo-sahn) is a very small chicken - 6 to 8 weeks old... 12 oz. to 2 lbs. in weight. It is generally served whole or split in half. Poussin may be roasted whole, halved or split and opened out flat. Fried or grilled (broiled) poussin should be halved or split and opened out flat. Some may call this recipe an extravagant dish but Poussin au Gingembre is simply cooked to make the most of a tasty sauce, and tender flesh of the chicken. Serve with your favourite green vegetable, and boiled baby new potatoes, roasted fingerling potatoes, or sauteed pariesienne potatoe. I cook chicken(s) or some other poultry at least 3 times per week, and place a great deal of value on this book. It is my pleasure, therefore to share with you one of the two recipes for Poussin. I thank the writer(s) of one of my favourite cookbooks (Supercook's Poultry and Game Cookbook), for their contribution to my repertoire. This recipe makes a wonderful dinner party meal.

    Recipe #288280

    The beauty of this recipe is its versatility. Experiment as you wish with the ingredients. Some people like raisins or currant in their loaves (I do not, but that should not stop anyone). This recipe is a delicious, healthy version of an old standby, and one which the entire family can enjoy. The following recipe has batter sufficient for one loaf; I have doubled the ingredients to create two loaves and bake them at the same time. Eat one, and freeze the other. Enjoy. IMPORTANT: Please note nut ingredients. Omit nuts if there are allergy implications. This recipe was originally created by Tracy Holly, General Manager of the Cory Holly Institute. She writes for national magazines and is a lifestyle coach, lecturer and emcee. Tracy is a health and fitness activist and believes in natural medicine. Tracy is the author of "THE ATHLETE'S COOKBOOK", teaches Latin and ballroom dancing, and competes in Masters' Level Ms Fitness and natural body building. Tracy's recipe appears in the current issue of VISTA Magazine; a Canadian Health Publication.

    Recipe #189086

    Yet another Lamb Recipe from my Toolbelt. LCBO, featured the Flavours of France and share with you. Succulent rack of lamb, heady with the fragrance of garlic and herbs. The garlic loses all its strong aromas and becomes a mellow vegetable when it is cooked. Its flavour beautifully complements the lamb. As an ideal match for the rich savour of lamb, herbs and garlic, Wine Tidings magazine chooses these robust full bodied reds from Southern France. - Fortant de France Cabernet Sauvignon. - Rigal Cahors. - Chateau de Gourgazaud. - Rasteau Cote du Rhone Villages (my third choice). - Calvet Reserve Bordeaux. - Guigal Cotes du Rhone (my second choice). - Jaboulet Crozes Hermitage. - Chateau Montlabert. - Mommessin Chateauneuf-du-Pape (my first choice).

    Recipe #163305

    Lamb is one of my favourite things to cook. One day I shopped at my usual organic butcher and there begging me to take it home was a butterflied (gigot) lamb leg. Of course I had to obey. My mind was all awhirl with ideas but none which appealed. I thought, "What does one do with a Butterflied Lamb Leg??? Stuff it of course"..... Next question, "Stuff it with what?" Here, Ladies and Gents is where creative juices are allowed to flow freely. Reaching deep into the recesses of creativity, I came up with the following recipe for goodness, prepared and served it to a close friend with a critical palate, and a taste for good blend of herbs and seasonings. (Of course the Chocolate-Glazed, Hazelnut Mousse Cake, was inducement enough ). You may want to serve a "simply perfect" Koongoora Hill, Shiraz Cabernet from Penfolds. They boast it to be Australia's finest, rich heritage of winemaking tradition and experience since 1844. Whether you serve wine with your dinner, or not, do prepare and serve this delicious creation; I promise you won't be sorry . Please note for richness of flavour, all herbs used are fresh, not dried.

    Recipe #159721

    In her new cookbook "BONES", Jennifer McLagan tells us "Meat on the bone imparts flavour like nothing else". In this exerpt from her new book, she makes a case for bringing bones back in the kitchen and to our tastebuds. (LCBO Food and Drink, Winter, 2006). Cooking "en papillote" is a technique that seals food in a paper package with flavourings, and baked. Ask your butcher to "french" the shanks for you... or do it yourself. You will want to expose about 3 inches of the shank bone, thus allowing you to tie the parchment paper to the bone. The packages will not be airtight, so they won't puff up, but the tehnique concentrates the flavours, and makes a great presentation. If parchment paper is too fussy for you, just make the dish in a Dutch Oven. What to Serve: Guinness Draught Beer Wine: Seaview Sparkling Shiraz

    Recipe #156152

    There does not seem to be any hard and fast rule controlling the preparation and development of a good salsa. Salsas have been developed with tomatoes, no tomatoes, vegetables only, vegetables and fruit, just fruit... Salsa is just that.... a Sauce. Smooth, or with chunks...Mild, Medium, Hot, Fiery, or Volcanic Eat it on its own, or in conjunction with meats, on sandwiches, with cheese, dipped or spooned. Some cultures call it Salsa, while others will dub this delicacy, Chutney... The versatility of salsa is: if you do not like the flavour, adjust it to suit your own palate... there is no "wrong" way to make salsa... there is only a "right" way.... and all recipes are right... whether you call it "Salsa" or "Chutney". Here then is my version of Salsa to suit any palate...

    Recipe #156085

    At Christmas time Romanian mothers readied the dough for baking these delicious breads with a variety of fillings. The smells of Cozonac baking would stir my senses. As a little girl, I knew there would be merriment and lots of good food. On Christmas Eve, relatives and their friends with musical instruments moved from house to house in the large Romanian community where I grew up. They would serenade us with Romanian Christmas songs and my mother would lay out Cozonac, Placinta with apples or sweetened cottage cheese, yeast doughnuts with lemon curd filling, and other lovely Old World style baking. There would be fresh sarmale (cabbage rolls), mititea, (sausage), pickled cucumbers, liquors and liqueurs, and home made wine. If families could afford it, money was also given to the carollers which would be divided between them at the end of their carolling. The feast was the carollers' reward for bringing joy in our homes, and was my signal that Mosu Craciun (Father Christmas) was about to arrive. The carollers moved throughout the Romanian community all night, during Christmas Eve, until dawn. I would sneak out of bed to watch the muscicians and listen to the carols. When they were gone I was sent to my bed, but quietly sneaked a peek to watch my parents put out the few toys for the youngest children and stockings filled with fruit nuts and cookies for the elders, and perhaps new mittens and socks. I was the eldest girl. There are many variations of fillings for the Cozonac. The basic dough does not vary much.

    Another gem from the shores of Georgian Bay, this recipe is the first place winner in the 2005, local contest, celebrating apple harvest time, and sponsored by the Meaford Express and the Town of Blue Mountains, Courier-Herald. This contest is an annual event, and entered recipes are featured in a cookbook produced by the sponsoring newspapers. Perfect for a "Pot Luck", or church social.

    Recipe #142628

    My cohorts in the Ontario Regional thread and I go on an Apple Run in the Fall and we come away loaded with apples, and a few recipes... Everyone loves apples, and better still when this love is translated into a tasty appetizer.

    Recipe #142381

    Like it or Lump it! Zucchini (Courjette) is a fact of life, and true to its inherent squash quality, they do grow to an enormous size. What does one do with so much zucchini? Make zucchini bread for bake sales, for pot lucks, for gifts at Christmas, for hostess gifts. or make a lovely tomato/zucchini casseroles for a nice change. The addition of salt in this recipe is rather discretionary, given the salt factor in the cheeses. Govern yourself accordingly. Although the salt item is included in the recipe, personally, I omit it entirely (once again, because of the cheeses).

    Recipe #138703

    Any Indian food recipes submitted herewith have been gleaned from the website: "Your Guide to Indian Food" Indian Recipes. I am a beginner in the art of Indian food preparation and found it most interesting to read the helpful information on this website. I would like to pass it on to you; who knows? you may learn something new. Building an Indian Menu for Beginners For beginners, eating an Indian meal might be somewhat of problem let alone cooking a balanced Indian meal. Indian food is designed to be eaten with the group. Unlike western food, Indian food cannot be eaten or served without a combination. Thus, even though you like that curried vegetable or chutney, try not to eat it by itself. Combine it with rice or Indian bread or with other dishes. This will help you enjoy the meal more and will not give any digestion problems later. There is basic rule about how to combine dishes to make a complete Indian meal. Each Indian meal should consist of starch (for example: rice and/or Indian bread), one or more main dishes (for example: meat dish or fish dish, or a lentil and vegetable combination) and some kind of chutney. Usually two vegetables and/or lentil dish will be served with meal; one ‘wet’ with lots of soup and one ‘dry’. For a simple meal there will be only few varieties of dishes while for an elaborate parties or festivals, more variety of them are prepared. Punjabi Food: A typical Indian restaurant in the United States serves a host of Punjabi food. Many non-Indian identify Punjabi food with the Indian food.

    An original recipe created for Around the World Recipe Swap. Many thanks to Elly in Canada, for her valued advice and capable assistance. Elly, we should open a restaurant... You chop and add the wine...I will saute... Easy as One, Two Three. One for the recipe, two for Elly, (that makes three). The ingredient, champagne grapes, are tiny blue, very sweet grapes, are also referred to as currant grapes. These can be purchased fresh from your specialty shop, at the end of the growing season. They are left on the vine a little longer to become a very sweet fruit, ideal for recipes where natural sweetness is the preferred method over the addition of refined sugar.
