Start the morning off on the right foot with bright and cheery breakfast tacos.

Mixing a bit of heat from the chipotle, a bit of sweet thanks to the apple and a bit of zip from three kinds of mustard, these are moist and flavourful burgers the whole family is sure to love. The herb aioli is also fantastic when served with grilled chicken or fish, or as a dip for vegetables.
Perogies are a staple side dish in many Canadian households. This meat filled variation is a hearty twist on the traditional potato and onion variety that also feature well as the main dish.
