Mustard and juniper berries-crusted picnic shoulder... and lazy weekends

Julia @Imagelicious

Have you tried the picnic shoulder cut of Ontario pork? If not, then you need to run to your closest butcher shop as soon as you can – it is now officially my favourite cut. Not only is it succulent and full of delicious meaty flavour, but it’s also extremely economical and very affordable.

Sausage-stuffed pork roast... and the changing seasons

Julia @Imagelicious

This sausage-stuffed pork loin roast is a perfect way to celebrate the beginning of fall. Let the kitchen fill with the smell of cooking pork, apples, and bacon. Serve the roast hot with mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables or let it cool and slice thinly to make a mountain of delicious pork sandwiches!

Chipotle lime BBQ ribs… and smoky Tex-Mex

Chef Dan

This is my take on BBQ ribs, but with an added Tex-Mex flair. Chipotle, lime, and cilantro bring tons of unique flavour and just the right amount of heat.
