Bet you can't eat just one!
These puffs are actually classic profiteroles with a bit of a twist. Their small size makes it easy to just pop one into your mouth. This recipe can easily be halved for a smaller yield, but since they freeze well, you might as well make the whole batch and keep them on hand for impromptu guests.

Everything you ever wanted to know about… roux!
When making a cheese sauce, béchamel, or gravy, you'll often see the recipe requires you to heat a bit of fat, add a similar amount of flour and cook the two for a minute or two before adding the liquid. This is called "making a roux", a technique used to thicken sauces and a good one to master if you're a fan of mac 'n' cheese! Here's what you need to know. Why a Roux Works The fat is combined with the starch first to prevent the starch granul...

For the best-ever Pancake Tuesday!
Multigrain flour, rolled oats and wheat germ give these quite chewy pancakes a wholesome flavour. Multigrain flour is a combination of all-purpose and whole wheat flours, cracked wheat and rye and whole flaxseeds. For a less chewy version, substitute whole wheat flour for the multigrain.

Yum!
Look for Pacific halibut from North America for this dish. It's caught in a more ocean-friendly manner than other types of halibut.

You're not tossing out that leftover tomato paste, are you?
Do you find yourself opening a can of tomato paste and only using half of it? Not sure what to do with the leftovers? Don't let that rich tomato flavour go to waste. Instead, freeze it for another recipe. Not only will you save money, but you won't waste its concentrated tomato flavour and thickening power - so valuable in the kitchen. To freeze tomato paste, scoop the leftovers out into tablespoon portions on a plate and put the plate in the fr...

Yes you can make green curry at home!
A curry is a great place to add or substitute your favourite vegetables. Since commercial Thai curry paste is generally made with fish sauce or shrimp, we've used our own recipe, which makes enough for a few meals. If fish is part of your diet, you can substitute fish sauce for the salt.

A fun kid-friendly snack to try this weekend! http://www.cbc.ca/bestrecipes/recipes/multiseed-cranberry-energy-bars
When the honey boils down, it gets thick, syrupy and surprisingly less sticky. You can add nuts to these bars if you like - just substitute 1/2 cup of them for the pumpkin seeds.
