Rustic fruit tarts

These tarts are made by folding the edges of the pie dough over the top of the ripe fruit filling, creating a rustic, free-form look.

Soft pretzels

Take matters into your own hands and whip up a batch of soft pretzels. These are delicious with honey mustard sauce.

Barley with nuts and dried fruit

Crunchy with almonds and pine nuts, this casserole is perfect alongside baked ham or turkey.

Cranberry Apple Pie

Here’s a delicious twist on a harvest classic

Cranberry Biscotti

Easy to make and great for dipping.

Cranberry Loaf

This yummy loaf is perfect for breakfast, or as a lunchbox snack.

Cranberry Sauce

Not just for Christmas turkey, this sauce is great with pork too.

Cranberry Tea Biscuits

These delightful biscuits burst with flavour!

Provençal tomato casserole

This casserole is best in summer when the tomatoes ripen on the vine, but the herbs and balsamic vinegar perk up winter tomatoes, too. If you like, assemble it ahead of time and bake it at the last minute.

Puffy oven apple pancake

Large and puffy baked pancakes are popular throughout Europe; this one is from Finland. The proportion of eggs, milk and flour varies from one recipe to another. It puffs up to make a golden, crusty cradle that can be filled with fruit or berries. A 17-inch (43-cm) slope-sided paella pan is perfect for baking the pancake.

Chickpea curry with fresh dill leaves

This recipe traditionally uses a split and skinned Indian chickpea called chana dal, but canned chickpeas work just as well. Also it uses dill leaves in the typical Indian style: as a vegetable, rather than an herb.

Shrikhand with yogurt cheese, saffron and pistachios

Shrikhand is one of those rare desserts that’s not only yummy, but virtually guilt free. The only fat here comes from the whole-milk yogurt. You could also use low-fat yogurt, but it yields less yogurt cheese and you will have to adjust the sugar accordingly.

Shrimp cakes with ginger and cilantro

These spicy shrimp cakes take a little time to form and fry, but it’s worth the effort. You can cut corners by buying peeled and deveined frozen shrimp, and prepare ahead by forming the cakes and refrigerating them overnight, then frying the next day.

Heirloom Tomato, Summer Peach and Fresh Herb Gazpacho Salad

Tomatoes and peaches taste great together, with the sweetness of the peach balancing the acidity of the tomato. I call this a gazpacho salad because you can roughly purée any leftovers in a blender and chill for a delicious gazpacho.

Sesame-Ginger Marinated Grilled Shiitakes

The marinating time in this recipe is short, so you can heat your grill while you’re prepping. Buy your shiitakes from a bulk bin, so that you can pick out the biggest ones. Large or medium caps are best for grilling; the little ones tend to fall through the cracks.
