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.

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!
