Arepas, those golden brown discs made of corn masa (dough) that usually get stuffed or topped, are the "daily bread" for a lot of Latin Americans (especially if you hail from my home country of Colombia or neighbouring Venezuela). Although not technically a bread, they can be consumed at any time of the day, much like the leavened stuff. They're served up plain alongside a steaming bowl of frijoles (beans), buttered for breakfast and topped with a fried or scrambled egg, or stuffed with all sorts of goodies such as chicken salad or marinated strips of grilled steak. The options are endless.

Whether over-easy, soft-boiled, lightly fried, or poached, runny-yolk eggs are one of the simplest, most delicious things in the world. But with so many ways to cook an egg, we can often fall back on one way to enjoy that yolk: bread.

I hate to sound melodramatic, but lettuce and I are enemies. It's not that I don't like eating salad -- I do -- it's that I never eat salad fast enough before my lettuce gets "weird", as in "not technically inedible but kind of limp and not-so-fresh looking". This makes me feel like a failure, and I hate failure. Luckily, Jenn Louis has a recipe specifically designed for not-quite-salad-worthy lettuce, and it's called "lettuce jam".

Though I'm fully aware that most of you have never seen or even heard of a "leftover sandwich", I am in the habit of ordering foot-long subs, and this habit often leaves me with an extra 15cm of sandwich. This is not a tragedy, but once the bread gets soggy, I am no longer willing to put it in my mouth. The sandwich contents are still good though, and there are many ways to eat them.

You know that awkward moment in your fridge, when it still has food in it, but it's all 1/2-cup portions of various leftovers and like, one carrot? That moment is annoying, because you still have food that can and should be eaten, just nothing that fits together in a cohesive meal. Luckily, I have a dish for just this moment: Eggs and rice.

You usually have some leftover mash after a big baked dinner. (It's one of those things it can't hurt to make too much of.) This goes doubly for mashed sweet potatoes, which aren't to everyone's taste. Next time, instead of nuking - and ruining - your leftovers in the microwave, try creating this crispy potato pizza instead.

A lot of recipes call for celery, but it's usually only a stalk or two, leaving you with a whole bunch of stringy, green sticks to use up. Luckily, Bon Appetit has come up with a whole bunch of uses for it, and not one of them involve ants or logs.

If you had a ham this Christmas, chances are there is a little bit left over. You can use it to make sandwiches (obviously) but if you want to get a little more creative, here are some of my favourite uses for the slices of salty pork.

Pannetone is a delicious, fruit-studded Italian bread that makes a wonderful Christmas gift, but you may have ended up with more than your fair share this holiday season. If you're looking for ways to use up this tasty loaf, festive French toast may be in your future.
