Take whatever notion you have of boxed yellow cake mix and cast it aside, for this show-stopping recipe truly is the icing on the cake! Enriched with eggs, buttermilk, and creamy Normandy-style butter, our moist and rich cake is spread with a luscious dark chocolate frosting that’s simply exquisite.

Butter tarts are a Canadian classic. How to make them more Canadian? Why, add a little maple syrup! If your family does not like raisins, leave them out- buttertarts are equally delicious without them.
Apple Cranberry Crisp
We added cranberries for a tart twist to a cool-weather classic. No need to thaw the cranberries first- they easily cut in half. You can serve crisp warm or at room temperature, making it a good make-ahead dessert for the holiday meal. Serve with vanilla ice cream for an extra-special treat.
Don’t be intimidated by making your own pie crusts- keep this basic recipe in your recipe files. It perfectly fits a 9-inch (23 cm) pie plate, without trimming away extra dough- simply tuck the extra underneath for double thickness at the edge. If your circle is less than perfectly round, you can trim one side after fitting it into pie plate and add to opposite side. If using for a savoury pie, such as tourtiere, omit the sugar.
Parmesan-Crusted Sole with Celeriac Remoulade
With a julienne of celery root and fresh herbs, a squeeze of lemon, and bound with our rich and creamy olive oil and garlic-infused aioli dressing, this delightful salad is a French Provençal-style classic. And with its contrasting crunch, our crisp and tender sole makes an exquisite accompaniment.
