Packed with hearty lentils, these tasty tacos are super satisfying. We've used dried green lentils rather than canned because they contain far less sodium and have a better texture.

This hearty French stew (named after the earthenware pot that it's traditionally cooked in) normally takes hours to prepare. Using canned beans and chicken thighs (instead of the usual duck confit) allows you to get it on the table in just minutes!

Studded with chocolate chips and crystallized ginger, this moist marbled loaf makes the best fall-flavoured afternoon treat. For the prettiest slices, generously swirl the batters together.
In large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, ground ginger, salt, cloves and nutmeg. Stir in chocolate chips and crystallized ginger.
In separate large bowl, beat butter with brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time; beat in pumpkin purée and vanilla (mixture may appear separated). Stir in flour mixture until combined. Remove half of the batter to separate bowl; fold melted chocolate into 1 bowl of the batter until combined.
Alternately drop spoonfuls of light and dark batters into parchment paper–lined 8- x 4-inch (1.5 L) loaf pan. Using butter knife, gently swirl batters to create marble effect. Using small offset palette knife, smooth top. Bake in 350° oven until loaf springs back when lightly touched, about 70 minutes. Let cool in pan for 15 minutes. Lift out onto rack; peel off parchment paper. Let cool completely.
Tip from The Test Kitchen: To make sure your loaf pan holds 1.5 litres, measure it by filling it with water. Not all brands are standardized, and volume will affect the baking time.

Sweet, tender dates are perfect imposters for creepy-crawly bugs. Unpitted dates are softer and easier to work with than their pitted counterparts. Simply slice off the tops and pick out the pits before plumping them up with butter icing.
