Holiday Oreo Bark

This is such a great recipe to make for any holiday because it’s completely customizable and ready in minutes. The only ingredients which remain constant are the Oreo cookies and chocolate, a combination which is delicious even on its own. However, with different candies and food coloring you can change the appearance and flavor according

Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies

These cookies and moist and delicious and the addition of the whole wheat flour and whole grain oats makes them healthier than most. Plus they are a perfect way to use those frozen bananas you might have sitting in your freezer.  You can vary the recipe by adding 1/2 cup of chopped nuts if you

Chocolate Crepes with Berries, Bananas & Nutella

These crepes are a favorite in my house, especially with the youngest members of the family. The chocolate batter makes the crepes sweet on their own but the filling makes them incredibly rich and decadent. I’ll often serve them as a dessert or for brunch alongside a savory crepe. Mix it up by using different fruit fillings

Spinach Salad with Pomegranate, Walnuts & Goat Cheese

This is a really nice light salad with a lot of texture. The crunch of the walnuts with the smooth goat cheese and juicy pomegranate provide a burst of flavor at every bite. The tangy Honey Balsamic dressing finishes off the salad nicely. Directions: Combine the ingredients for the dressing and set aside. Plate the

Crab Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

These stuffed mushrooms have a sophisticated flavor and hearty texture. The softness of the crab is enhanced by the seasoned veggies and crunchy breadcrumbs. I love having these as a starter but they are filling enough to have as a light lunch with a side salad. If you don’t have portobello mushrooms on hand, you

Creamy Apple Cheddar Soup

I love the combination of tart and sweet in this satisfying soup. It’s a great brunch option and also makes an excellent first course. Green apples work best in this soup as the flavor is strong without being overpowering. Experiment with different cheeses to change up the flavour. Smoked Gouda or Swiss cheese will provide

Blueberry Scones with Lemon Glaze

These scones are bursting with blueberries and have the perfect balance of sweet and tangy thanks to the lemon glaze. They come together in minutes with very little fuss. I always use frozen blueberries for this recipe as they tend to be larger and sweeter than fresh and I add them just before baking so

Spicy Guacamole

Spicy Guacamole It’s tough to find commercial guacamole that looks or tastes as good as fresh. And when it’s so easy to make, skip the trip to the store and make your own. I recommend purchasing firm green avocados and allowing them to ripen on your counter rather than buying them at the store when

Turkey Roll-ups Stuffed with Almonds and Apples

This is probably the most difficult Easy Peasy recipe I have as it involves a few more more steps than usual. But the finished product is worth the extra effort and it’s really nice as a special occasion meal. For this recipe I am using turkey breast but chicken and pork are excellent substitutes. Directions:

Candied Yam Casserole

This casserole is a great addition to any meal, but is especially good at the holidays when sweet potatoes or yams are part of your holiday feast. This recipe draws inspiration from candied yams and fruit crumble. Combined methods make an excellent side dish! I use granola in the topping as it’s generally sweetened but

Frittatas with Sausage, Peppers and Onions

These individual frittatas are so simple to make, and when you make them in ramekins instead of a muffin tin it adds a nice elegance. Perfect for entertaining or special occasions. To make this even easier, you can prepare them in advance and let them chill until you are ready to bake them. You may

Sugar Plums

This recipe takes its inspiration from the Sugar Plums made famous in the popular nursery rhyme, “Twas The Night Before Christmas”. Quite different than an actual sugar plum, which is made mainly from colored sugar, this recipe combines the real fruit with a sweet and delicious glaze that can be made in under 5 minutes.

Chilled Prawn Salad with Lemon Pepper Dressing

This refreshing salad is a real time saver as it can be made in advance and chilled in the refrigerator for up to 4 hours before serving. In fact, it enhances the flavor. Simply add the dressing just before serving and finish with a sprinkle of cilantro. Directions: Assemble the dressing and keep chilled until

Mixed Berry Tower with Drizzled Chocolate

This dessert literally takes minutes to assemble and it’s so beautiful to serve. Plus it’s full of antioxidants so it’s practically health food! Spoon it onto individual plates or if you are sharing the dish with just a few people you can use wooden skewers to pierce the fruit. Directions: Wash all the fruit and

Gnocchi with Mushroom Ragù

I absolutely love gnocchi. It’s so versatile and is one of those foods which takes on the flavor of whatever you put with it. This mushroom ragù has a hearty, meaty texture which pairs perfectly with the mild potato flavor of the gnocchi. Directions: In a very large pot, the butter over medium heat. Add

Macadamia Nut Crusted Banana Bread

This banana bread recipe has been in my family for years but what makes this version special is the crunchy topping thanks to the addition of crushed Macadamia Nuts. I find this recipe works best for mini loaves as the nuts are quite sensitive to heat and could burn if left in the oven for

Chocolate Mint Fudge

If you enjoy the taste of a Laura Secord French Mint Chocolate Bar, you will love this fudge! It tastes so similar I couldn’t tell the difference. This recipe is very rich and smooth and with only four ingredients it couldn’t be easier. Directions: Line a square baking pan with wax paper so it comes

Savory Mushroom Antipasto

This delicious antipasto is very nice to serve as an appetizer or a light lunch. I love the combination of the savory mushrooms with the smooth cream cheese on the crisp french bread. You can change up the variety of cream cheese for a more intense flavor or use plain if you want keep it

Quick and Simple Seafood Chowder

This chowder is about as easy as it gets to make. It has a nice rich flavor and is loaded with seafood. In this recipe I use canned seafood including crab and clams for the broth, and I add shrimp and barbecued salmon at the end for added color and flavor. You can also substitute

Appetizer – Tomato Towers

I am always looking for interesting ways to serve up my favourite veggies. These tomato towers are so simple to create yet they are beautiful and elegant. I love serving them at dinner parties in the summer when tomatoes are abundant. However due to their color combination they can also be a festive addition to your holiday table.  If

Strawberries and Cream French Toast

Adding strawberries and cream to classic French Toast adds a sweet and sophisticated taste which is a hit with adults and kids alike. You can change up the fruit or use flavored cream cheese to intensify the flavour. Directions: Preheat your oven to 400. In a bowl, combine the milk, eggs and nutmeg. Set aside.
