"This fragrant, tasty, lower-in-fat version of the traditional tourtiere has been made for 100 years by Colomb family to honor our Quebec origins. My Aunt Marguerite began baking these pies after Thanksgiving and froze them until her standup freezer was full for Christmas. It was tourtiere for all during the Christmas season! Serve with a fresh vegetable tray and cranberry sauce. This is wonderful home-made fast food." — by Colomb

"Seal in flavor and juices with this novel way of cooking roast beef. Wrapped in a salt batter, the beef's moisture and natural juices are sealed in keeping the meat extra tender and delicious. Make au jus separately since the roast's drippings will be too salty to use." — by chuck dagel
