Whole Wheat Hot Cross Buns with Dried Berries

Whole Wheat Hot Cross Buns with Dried Berries

First off I have to admit I have never had a hot cross bun before, and I am not sure why?! They are bready, and I like bready things; and they also have a lot of flavour with all the spices added, and I love spice! So since it’s Easter, I have been seeing a lot of hot cross bun recipes floating around the web, and as I checked them out, I realized I needed to make them! I changed…

Christmas Dinner Ideas

Christmas Dinner Ideas

I’ve hosted Christmas dinner a few times now and love it every time!

Nuts and Bolts

Nuts and Bolts

I make nuts and bolts every year at this time to give out as gifts and to share with family and friends as a snack when they come over to my house during the holiday season.

They are crunchy and salty and quite honestly, I followed the…

French Canadian Tourtiere Meat Pie

French Canadian Tourtiere Meat Pie

Christmas is easily my favourite time of year and for many reasons; mostly because I love cooking and entertaining and Christmas is (for me and my family) all about eating and getting together! One dish that is traditionally served at Christmas is the French Canadian tourtiere meat pie. The tourtiere originated in Quebec and is a meat pie consisting of ground or finely diced pork, beef or veal. I have always had it growing up with pork, but I have seen many other versions,…

Cranberry Pistachio White Chocolate Bark

It’s only five days until Christmas! If you are in a pinch and looking for a really simple Christmas treat, this recipe takes a little over an hour only, and most of that time is for the setting of the cranberry pistachio white chocolate bark in the fridge.  Cranberry pistachio white chocolate bark just screams christmas to me. The cranberries are red; the pistachios green; and the chocolate is white; making it Christmas themed by the colours alone! It is…
