Slow Cooker Pulled Beef Credits: Stacey Brandford
Serve with cooked rice, shredded lettuce, sour cream and chopped fresh cilantro, if desired.
In slow cooker, combine tomatoes, tomato paste, onion, jalapeño pepper, cumin, garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper. Add beef, turning to coat; cover and cook on low until beef is tender, 8 to 10 hours.
Using 2 slotted spoons, transfer beef to cutting board; remove any twine. Using 2 forks, shred beef into bite-size pieces. Transfer to bowl.
Skim fat from surface of cooking liquid. Add 2 cups of the cooking liquid to beef; toss to coat. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days.)

Tangy mustard, sweet maple syrup and robust rosemary make the perfect flavour combination for baked squash wedges. To add a little kick, use spicy Italian sausages instead of the mild ones.
Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Banana Pancakes Credits: Jodi Pudge Source: Canadian Living Magazine: September 2016
These flourless pancakes taste a bit like the centre of a piece of French toast. Fry up a batch (or two!) on the weekend and keep the wrapped pancakes in your fridge or freezer for an easy microwaveable breakfast you'll actually want to eat.
In bowl, mash 1 of the bananas until smooth. Stir in 2 tsp of the honey, the baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt. Stir in eggs until well combined.
Measure out 1 tbsp vegetable oil. Heat nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat; lightly brush with some of the oil. Working in batches, drop batter by 2 tbsp into skillet; sprinkle 1/2 tsp of the pistachios over each pancake. Cook until bottoms are golden, about 2 minutes. Turn pancakes; cook until bottoms are golden, about 1 minute. Transfer to plate. Repeat with remaining oil, batter and all but 2 tsp of the pistachios. (Make-ahead: Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 3 days or overwrap in foil and freeze for up to 3 weeks; reheat in microwave or toaster.)
Slice remaining banana; arrange over pancakes. Sprinkle with remaining pistachios; drizzle with remaining honey.
Tip from The Test Kitchen: Flourless pancakes can be tricky to flip, but here's a trick: Use a thin spatula and lightly mist it with cooking spray before turning the pancakes.
Makes about 8 pancakes.
Fresh Pumpkin Purée Credits: Jodi Pudge
If you think fall is synonymous with pumpkin pies and spiced lattes, this recipe will be your go-to all season long. Pumpkin purée is so easy to prepare and, best of all, homemade will give all of your pumpkin treats the freshest flavour possible.
Halve and seed pumpkin; prick skin all over with fork. Arrange, flesh side down, on foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Roast in 375°F oven until flesh is tender, about 1 hour. Let cool for 15 minutes.
Scoop flesh into food processor; purée until smooth. Drain in cheesecloth-lined sieve for 1 1/2 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 1 month.)
Makes about 1-3/4 cups.
