I found this recipe in the Toronto Sun. Although I made the cookies with salted butter as directed, the feedback I got was that the cookies were too salty. Next time, I would make them with unsalted butter and just add a little salt to bring out the flavour of the chocolate. Use your own judgment.
Salted caramels are all the rage and are actually quite yummy. President's Choice sells them in Canada but unfortunately, I was unable to get any to decorate the top of this cake. It didn't really matter because it was still decadently delicious.
This recipe from Ottawa TV chef Pam Collacott was a big hit at my house this past Christmas morning. It is so good, I wouldn't save it just for Christmas! I made it up the same day but you can prepare it up to the point where it goes into the oven and freeze it until you need it. Just add an extra 20 to 25 minutes to the baking time.
This recipe from the Dairy Farmers of Canada is absolutely yummy and can be easily divided in half to serve fewer people. Serve with mashed potatoes or buttered egg noodles to take advantage of the delicious sauce.
This recipe is from Food TV's Corbin Tomaszeski and is also good made with ground chicken. It is quite spicy so feel free to adjust the amount of heat, as I did. I didn't add the red pepper flakes when I made it but put the jar on the table so that my husband could make it spicier for himself!
This filling in this recipe from Vegetarian Times is very close to that of authentic Indian samosas. I am including the recipe for whole wheat pie crust given in the magazine but I personally would prefer it made with my usual white flour crust or something closer to a real samosa crust.
This lovely recipe from Canadian Living makes a nice Thanksgiving or Christmas main course for two or for more, if you aren't into big, heavy meals. Using the roasted red peppers that come in a jar is a real time saver.
