Escondidinho in Brazil, cottage pie or Shepherd’s pie in North America, Pastelón in Mexico or Caribe… This pie is a casserole that combines yuca (cassava/ manioc) and a savoury filling – meat (ground beef – my family favourite), shrimp (my favourite), diced chicken, turkey, fish, dried codfish (bacalhau), pork, Sun-dried Beef/jerked beef (The famous Escondidinho de Carne Seca in Brazil) and also soy or veggies could be added or used without meat for a vegetarian version… The fillings are limited only by your imagination.

A true one casserole dish that can also be made from leftovers. You already know that I absolutely love casseroles, not only because they are delicious but also because they are easy and ideal for busy days. You can make it ahead and leave it in your fridge and bake it at the end of the day when you come home from work! It can be served by itself or accompanied by a fresh salad or steamed vegetables. It’s really up to you!

It is one of the most versatile pies that can be assembled. And if you don’t like or find the yuca (cassava/manioc) you can also make it using different types of mashed roots, like potatoes or sweet potatoes or instant mashed potatoes, as a substitute.

It’s gluten-free, the dough is perfect for the gluten intolerant. This is pure fabulousness! One of my favourites dishes.

 

Crispy fish without the grease – Haddock (or other white fish) is lightly breaded and baked. Parmesan adds a nice flavour. 

Fast and easy to prepare, and no frying needed! Oven-baked fish is a perfect alternative to the more caloric fried version.

So much flavor… so easy, healthy and tasty! Ideal for busy weeknights.

It’s a “cheesy” variation from this “lemony” Oven-Baked Lemon Fish Fillets Fast2eat.

If you’ve ever tried potato bread, you know that the addition of mashed potatoes makes for some nice, soft bread because potatoes tend to make bread rise a little fluffier and softer.

Potato Bread made with instant potato flakes and dry milk means you don’t have to spend time peeling and cutting potatoes or wait for leftover mashed potatoes to make it.

 

There are hundreds of variations of Salted Codfish (Bacalhau) recipes, but my family’s favourite has always been the one from Almeida, a Portuguese family friend,

Bacalhau with potatoes and broccoli with his special sauce. It is so Fast to make that you can have a dinner ready in less than 30 minutes with no waste time.

Also try this Bacalhau (Salted Codfish) Salad.

 

Let’s be honest—store-bought sun-dried tomatoes tend to be a bit leathery and tough, without much flavor. They seem like a faded, desiccated memory of a tomato, rather than a fragrant, intensified taste of summer days. Homemade “sun-dried”1 tomatoes, on the other hand, are another thing entirely: fragrant and chewy but not tough, with complex, concentrated tomato flavor and a slight sweetness.

Slow baked in the oven makes these oven dried tomatoes the best. Drizzle with olive oil, toss with spices to make the perfect appetizer or side dish.

Not a labor-intensive process, but certainly a lengthy one. Of all the methods for preserving tomatoes, drying them in the oven is the least fussy. Plus, drying preserves their sweetness and flavor best. And these flavorful little gems cost so little when made at home; it’s worth the time they need to achieve that chewy, raisin-like texture.

One thing I can guarantee is the appetizing fragrance in your house of tomatoes slowly roasting to dried perfection, especially if you choose to season them with garlic and herbs.

In the meantime, think of all the tomato bread, salads, pizzas, pasta, pestos and sauces you’ll be able to make once they’re done. It’s tempting to prematurely devour those tiny little sweeties, hot, pungent, sweet & salty with good virgin olive oil as they are, spread on crackers or toasts.
