Stacked Potato Gratin Credits: Angus Fergusson
These individually portioned gratins are ideal for serving a larger group. To prevent the stacks from falling over, make your slices as straight as you can. For the best results, use a mandoline.
Using mandoline or knife, slice potatoes crosswise into scant 1/8-inch thick rounds.
In large bowl, stir together 3/4 cup of the Parmesan, the oil, thyme, garlic, salt, nutmeg and pepper. Add potatoes; toss to coat.
Placing largest pieces on the bottom and smallest on the top, layer potatoes on parchment paper–lined baking sheet to make 12 stacks. Bake in 400°F oven until potatoes are tender, about 35 minutes. (Make-ahead: Let cool completely; cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Reheat in 350°F oven until warmed through, about 20 minutes.) Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan. Bake until Parmesan is bubbly and golden, about 10 minutes.
Best Maple Butter Tarts
Make your own delectable custardy tarts instead of buying them. We've subbed in the very Canadian ingredient maple syrup for the more common corn syrup. Plus, we've included variations on the classic, with chocolate and pecans instead of raisins.

Put down that takeout menu! This healthy spin on beef and broccoli will leave you feeling full and guilt-free. Thin bite-size pieces of flank steak are much easier to eat than long strips, so cut your flank steak in half lengthwise (with the grain) before thinly slicing it crosswise (against the grain).
Slow Cooker Rare Beef Pho image Credits: Slow Cooker Rare Beef Pho image
The essence of this Vietnamese pho lies in the long-cooking, rich beef broth which forms the base of the soup - the slow cooker is the ultimate tool for the task. Fresh, vibrant garnishes, like bean sprouts, assorted fresh herbs such as mint, cilantro and basil, thinly sliced onion, chilies and lime wedges, make each and every bowl of soup unique. Serve them at the table in separate bowls so each person can create the pho of their dreams.
