Cinnamon Roll Recipe

Cinnamon Rolls

On special occasions like Christmas morning or someone’s birthday, we like to bake cinnamon buns. Cinnamon buns can be labour intensive but yet so worth it. I have had the pleasure of staying at The Manse in Cape May, New Jersey. Karsten and Anita are wonderful hosts and feed you so well. This is Anita’s […]

Venison Tenderloin with roasted vegetables

Venison Tenderloin with Roasted Vegetables

There’s something comforting about a venison meal shared with family and friends. To me, it conjures a nostalgic mood of warm tradition and it transports me back to a time before mega grocery stores, and when people prepared family meals with locally procured food from the fall harvest.

Winter Pie

Winter Pie

Looking for comfort food to warm up on cold days?  This is a full-flavoured family favourite.  If there are leftovers, it freezes well for later lunches. How does this “Winter Pie” compare to a more familiar Shepherd’s Pie or Cottage Pie?  Both aforementioned meals have history in the UK as a clever way to use […]

A few years ago, when I lived in an apartment in Virginia, my dear friend Nicole had her parents come to visit her. Her Dad made this in huge batches and they invited me for dinner. I have tried over the years to duplicate his recipe and this is a huge hit in our house. This […]

Southwestern Spice Mix

Southwest Spice Mix

We love to eat southwestern or Mexican foods such as nachos, tacos or burritos, among many others. We also love to mix “Taco Seasoning” with sour cream topped with salsa and cheese for a quick movie night appetizer. Purchasing the pre-made packets of taco seasoning can get to be quite expensive not to mention MSG […]

Shrimp and Grits

Shrimp and Grits

As a girl who spent a number of years both in Georgia and in Virginia, I came to know and love grits. When I first told Gourmet Ontario’s own Scott about grits, he wasn’t too sure he would like to try them. He wasn’t sure about the texture or how they would taste. What is […]

Tonight we are sitting at home enjoying the warmth of our favourite pajamas after shoveling the driveway for the first snow fall of the year. We decided not to attend one of the holiday events we had planned for this evening and just stay safe at home. But to celebrate the beginning of the holiday season, […]
