Michael Smith, Old Fashioned Beef Stew I never have red wine, so I either use a bottle of beer or more beef stock. Best stew ever, as long as you take the time to brown the meat!

Old Fashioned Beef Stew - Chef Michael Smith. I have made this a bunch of times! (I prefer to leave out the pickled onions)

> Maple Mustard Oat-Crusted Salmon> A quick and delicious way to celebrate a few of Canada's iconic ingredients! (Pan fried instead and didn't measure)

Great lunch idea - Chef Michael Smith's Rotisserie Chicken Wrap with Avocado, Tomatoes, and Basil.

Recipe of the Day> Golden Rice Pilaf> This variation on a classic rice pilaf is spiced up with vibrant curry, colourful saffron, and succulent sweet potatoes.

Next time, reduce the pancetta and prosciutto to each - it was a little much. Also, don't salt the pasta water, this is a salty dish.

Light, crisp salad greens, fresh vegetables, crispy croutons and a tangy, well balanced dressing tastefully completes any meal.

Sunrise Smoothie: Jump out of bed and hit the ground running with a glass full of goodness. This homemade breakfast treat is a nutritional jump-start.
