I plan on making these for Christmas this year. They're quick to make and you can use different flavorings. The recipe was found in Company's Coming for Christmas by Jean Pare.
NOTE: The main ingredient is dipping chocolate wafers. These are little discs of chocolate that I've found at Bulk Barn.
This is a wonderful last minute or make ahead and freeze appetizer (they can be frozen up to 1 month). The recipe comes from The Canadian Living Christmas Book.
Cooking time is time in freezer (must freeze for at least 4 hours).
For anyone who'd like a change from the usual cranberry sauce, this recipe may just be what you've been looking for. It's a tangy-sweet relish just brimming with beautiful ruby-red beets, celery, onions and, of course, cranberries.Serve it with roast turkey or roast goose. This relish may be made up to 24 hours before serving. <<Cooking time is refrigeration time.>>
The recipe comes from The Canadian Living Christmas Book.
This is the salad recipe that goes with Caesar Salad Mix. The recipe comes from The Canadian Living Christmas Book.
The Zaar menu won't let me us Caesar Salad Mix as an ingredient so I've called it 'seasoning'. Click on this link for the Caesar Salad Mix recipe: recipe#403222

I was serving tourtiere for Christmas this year and didn't want DD to be left out. This is the version I made for her. I've included the recipe for a delicious sounding crust but I cheated and used a commercial pie crust.
It uses TVP, or textured vegetable protein, which is a dried soy product available in granules or chunks that, when cooked, resemble the texture of ground meat. Look for it in the health food section of grocery stores.
My family just loves this bean salad.
It provides a protein source for my vegetarian daughter and my omnivore husband likes it as well. I've adapted it from a recipe in Chatelaine Food Express, Quickies 2
This recipe comes from Canadian House and Home. It is soooo good.
It's baked so it's easy to make more than 1 at a time. The cheese oozes out of the sandwiches while baking and becomes a crunchy crust around the bread.
Use a really good bread and slice it extra thick.
You can use commercial mango chutney or try this home-made version: recipe#368738
