A delicious warm main-course salad. Add a bottle of crisp white wine, and serve in tumblers for an authentic bistro touch.
Bistro Shrimp and Bacon Salad
This is sloppy Joe by way of the Mediterranean! Satisfyingly messy.
Garlicky Green Beans
This delicious side dish comes together in minutes. Perfect to accompany a holiday roast, but easy enough to make any day of the week.
Meatless Meatball Sandwich
This hearty, warm sandwich is a meal in itself. Messy, but delicious! Crusty kaiser rolls make serving easier than making one big submarine sandwich and slicing it.
Nothing beats just-made drop doughnuts – tender and cake-like because they’re made with buttermilk.
Pain Perdu with Maple Blueberry Sauce
So-named because it can be made with stale bread that would otherwise be lost (perdu), this dish is a brunch classic. It’s low fat as is, but you can dress it up by serving with whipped cream and fresh strawberries if you like.
Pretzel-Crusted Pork Chops
Pretzels and mustard are a classic combination. Here we combine them with pork, for a quick-bake pork chop.
Silver Dollar Banana Pancakes
Kids love miniature versions of things they can pick up in their hands-baby carrots, sandwiches cut with small cookie cutters, and these loonie-sized pancakes.
The Big Brunch Sandwich
An impressive bacon-and-egg sandwich, given a Mediterranean twist by the tapenade and roasted red peppers.
