Throw a handful of frozen raspberries into our chocolate bran muffin mix to mix it up a little- no need to thaw them first.
Mini Raspberry Chocolate Bran Muffins
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.
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.
Mincemeat Pinwheel Cookies
Pinwheel cookies are a Christmas classic. This version uses pre-rolled puff pastry as the dough, and seasonal mincemeat as the filling. Much easier than the traditional version with two colours of home-made cookie dough stacked and rolled.
Jam Thumbprint Cookies
Thumbprint cookies are a holiday tradition, and look great on a dessert tray. Substitute another type of nut, if you prefer.
Chocolate Cherry Brownie Cookies
Melted chocolate makes this drop cookie extra delicious. Look for dried cherries in the bulk area of the grocery store.
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.
Too Easy Trifle
This cheaters’ trifle uses canned custard, whipped cream and bought cake to make the easiest trifle ever. All the more time to spend with your family and guests!
Cranberry Bran Muffins
Make a batch on the weekend, individually wrap and freeze to enjoy all week. Add a yogurt for a nutritious, quick breakfast.
Chocolate Raspberry Panini
A dessert sandwich? Why not! Chocolate and raspberry are a classic combination, even better when served warm in a panini sandwich.
