After many days and weeks of confinement, and with the O.K. from health authorities, we can finally get together with some of our close friends or family.  What better at this time of year, when the weather is warm and sunny, than to have a BBQ.  I love a good burger, especially one made from scratch by Sandra.  She makes wicked burgers (never gives her recipe, different every time and ALWAYS SUPER JUICY)!  This time it was my turn and I had a craving for lamb burgers with Indian type spices and herbs.  I came across this recipe and tweaked it so it fit my cravings.

Easter Brunch

After the Easter egg hunt, a great way to start the celebrations is to invite friends and family to a tasty brunch.  Set your table in style with a colourful tablecloth, flowers, decorated eggs and a wonderful spread of goodies.  To help you make it easy, we are proposing a few recipes that can easily be served buffet style.

Tartiflette Recipe

We were looking at making a menu for our coming time off, and with all the cheese in the fridge, we said “LET’S MAKE a TARTIFLETTE!”  It is made with potatoes, reblochon type cheese, white wine, cream, lardons and onions.  What’s not to like!

Fall Recipes

Fall is one of my favourite seasons – the weather is getting cooler, and the produce choices are ramping up.  Amazing, tasty products are either hitting their peak in your garden or can easily be found in local farmer’s markets. Just visit the Almonte or Carleton Place farmers’ markets to be convinced.

It’s the time of year when you can easily find apples, pears, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, and winter squash, to name just a few.  They’re the perfect excuse to get cooking on cool nights!

What better way to warm a crisp autumn day than with soups, pot pies, roasts, and casseroles. Here are some recipes, easy to make, and that your friends and family would love.  Enjoy!
