Jasmin’s Creamy Berry Oatmeal

Jasmin C.Toronto

My favourite winter breakfast is hot oatmeal prepared with a spoon of yogurt and a handful of frozen berries from the summer. It's hot and nutritious, but it's also oatmeal, so I don't really know how to switch it up or make it better. Help!

Amanda’s Mushroom Pork Chops

Sample Before

Mom’s Chicken Macaroni

Joanna S.Estevan

I’ve been making this dish for as long as I can remember – until my husband got bored of it! He’s on a health-kick; so a macaroni recipe with chicken, bacon, cream of chicken soup, cheese and crushed chips, sure isn’t healthy. I’d love to put it back in rotation but it definitely needs a makeover.

Larissa's Rice Pudding

Larissa D. Bobcaygeon

One of my favourite dishes to make is the classic: rice pudding. My husband and I love it, but the kids just won’t eat it. I’ve been looking for a way to put a healthy, kid-friendly spin on the dish, but I can’t seem to get it right. Please give my recipe a makeover!

Before Makeover

Bobby’s Mashed Taters

Mashed potatoes are a holiday must. My son loves them so much that he has been dubbed the official Mashed Tater Maker. This year I want to reinvent the dish so he can take his tater-making to the next yummy level.
