Meyer lemons are sweeter and less acidic than regular lemons, making them perfect for desserts. This bar makes a nice addition to a dessert tray, where the rule of thumb is one lemon item, one chocolate item and one nut item.
Meyer Lemon Bars
Terrific Turkey Croquettes
Expand your turkey leftover repertoire with this classic turkey-and-potatoes croquette. Serve with a green salad, and if you like, leftover cranberry sauce.
Belle Riviere Cauliflower Gratin
Adding cheese sauce to cauliflower or broccoli is a sure-fire way to get the kids to eat it! A wonderful dish to serve alongside a roast. You can steam the cauliflower, if you prefer steaming to boiling.
Dulce de Leche Croquembouche
This is an incredibly impressive yet easy dessert to serve to a crowd. Make it the centrepiece of your holiday dessert table.
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.
A decadent treat that’s easier to make at home than you might think. Warning- it is messy!
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.
Holiday Truffle Fudge
This cross between fudge and a chocolate truffle is pretty on a dessert tray, and makes a great gift.
