Dulce de Leche Croquembouche
Strawberry Dulce de Leche Trifle
Trifle is always a popular holiday dessert- it feeds a crowd and is made well ahead of time, with no last minute preparation. Frozen berries are an economical alternative to the usual fresh berries- and they are always ripe.
Brown Rice Salad with Arugula and Feta
Brown rice is lower on the glycemic index than white rice and contains more fibre, meaning it makes you feel full longer. Try this salad for your packed lunches.
Fattoush is a Middle Eastern vegetable and herb salad that contains toasted bread, usually pita. You’ll need a vegetable grill basket for this grilled version, to keep the smaller veggies from falling through the grill.
Mini Piri Piri Pita Pizzas
Piri piri sauce packs a punch in this delectable little hot hors d’oeuvre.
Whole Wheat Scones
This low fat treat doesn’t sacrifice flavour for reduced fat. Share with others within a day or so of eating, or freeze, as the lower fat level affects keeping quality.
Mozzarella and Artichoke Pizza
White pizzas such as this are not tomato-based as are many pizzas and somehow seem more elegant. A rich, quick and easy appetizer.
Cheese & Bacon Pizza
Cheese and bacon are always popular pizza toppings, and sure to please any fussy eaters you may have in your family!
Ricotta and Roasted Tomato Crostini
Making little toasts for crostini under the broiler is a bit fiddly, but this wire-rack oven method reduces the chances of burnt toast. Ricotta is a delicious and unusual topping.
Maple Balsamic Fig Salad with Goat Cheese Croquettes
In the winter, sweeter Mission figs are in season, in summer the less sweet green figs. Walnuts give this salad a bitter edge to balance the sweetness of the vinaigrette and figs.
