Tacos al pastor... and impressing the neighbours

Tacos al pastor is a dish developed in central Mexico. It is thinly sliced pork, marinated in a spicy sauce made from dried chillies and achiote paste. The marinated pork is skewered onto a pineapple and stacked high with alternating layers of bacon.

Ham hock puff pastry pot pie... and the one last winter dish

Lori Kennedy

Pot pie is a recipe that takes time, but so totally worth it. However, instead of traditional crust over the pot pie, I like to use puff pastry. Not only is it crisp, flaky and delicious, it’s easy.

Ham & egg casserole... and the perfect way to start the day

Diana Leblanc

Nothing starts the day better than a tasty meal. It’s quite simple to assemble this breakfast casserole, and then into the oven it goes. Leftovers are a delightful treat for the next day and it even packs well with a side salad for lunch.
