Christmas Baking

When this time of year arrives, I feel the nostalgia of Christmases past.  I just remember the cakes and cookies my Mom and Grandmother were making.  Hmm, the smell of the kitchen, the joy of the feast to come and the anticipation of parties and family gatherings.   I have fond memories of two special recipes my mom made for us.

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.

Raclette Season

Fall is upon us with bright leaves and cooler days that call for warm meals filled with scrumptious flavours.  It is when we start planning meals with family and friends in the warmth of our home.  We are all busy and an easy option, a raclette, is a fun stress-free meal to share that can create memorable gatherings.  There is no cooking in advance – except to boil some potatoes – and the preparation is limited to chopping up a few vegetables and plating up the cheese.  What could be easier!

Mediterranean Bean Salad

Some of you might be planning a get together this long weekend.  Perhaps you are wondering what to serve your friends or what to bring to a potluck.  This salad is wonderfully delicious and is a perfect side dish to any meal.  The tangy lemon dressing mixed with oregano and olives brings out the Mediterranean flavours.
