Pork, Apple, Sage and Stilton Sausages IMAGE Image by: Pork, Apple, Sage and Stilton Sausages IMAGE
Cheese isn't a typical sausage filling, but here it adds a creamy tang that's addictive. Be sure to work with a partner and use medium-width pork sausage casings -- lamb casings are too narrow.

These nut-free treats are chewy and packed with flavour, thanks to the tasty fruit and toasted quinoa, which also add fibre and protein to stave off hunger. Pack one in her knapsack for snack emergencies!
In skillet, toast quinoa over medium- high heat, shaking pan often, until brown and beginning to pop, about 8 minutes.
Meanwhile, in saucepan, combine corn syrup, tahini, honey and oil; heat over medium heat, shaking pan often, until melted and smooth, about 6 minutes.
In large bowl, combine cherries, oats, quinoa flakes, coconut flakes, pepitas and toasted quinoa; stir in syrup mixture to coat evenly. Scrape into parchment paper–lined 13- x 9-inch (3.5 L) cake pan, pressing firmly with bottom of greased measuring cup or greased spatula.

Cardamom Sweet Potato Soup with Thick Cream and Pistachios Image by: Jodi Pudge
Roasting the sweet potatoes before adding them to the broth mixture enhances their sweet, earthy flavour and gives this Indian-inspired soup deeper colour.
In large bowl, toss together sweet potatoes and half each of the oil, salt and pepper. Spread in single layer on greased rimmed baking sheet. Roast in 425°F oven, stirring once, until tender and lightly browned, 30 to 35 minutes.
Meanwhile, in Dutch oven or large heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat remaining oil over medium heat; cook onion and celery, stirring occasionally, until beginning to soften, about 4 minutes. Add garlic, 1/2 tsp of the cardamom and the cayenne pepper; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Pour in 1 cup of the broth; cook until celery is softened, about 4 minutes. Stir in sweet potatoes.
Working in batches, in blender, purée soup with remaining broth until smooth. Scrape into clean Dutch oven. Stir in remaining salt and pepper and 4 cups water; cook over medium heat until warmed through, about 2 minutes. Ladle into serving bowls.
In separate bowl, beat cream with remaining cardamom until thickened; dollop onto soup. Sprinkle with pistachios.
Makes 10 to 12 servings.
