Holiday Recipes

Some of our best childhood memories are baking during the holidays. We've started our own tradition of making our own favourite treats that the kids love to help with as much as they love to eat.

Chocolate Crinkle CookiesRecipe: Chocolate Crinkles
With cocoa powder and bittersweet chocolate, these chocolate crinkle cookies are rich, moist and simply irresistable.
Gingerbread CookiesRecipe: Gingerbread Cookies
I don't like my Gingerbread to be too strong or too hard, hence I reduce the molasses a bit, and use egg yolks to give them a little extra richness.
The Best Rum BallsRecipe: The Best Rum Balls
My take on rum balls with a touch of rum, a delectable chocolate truffle component and a touch of spice to play off the rum.
blondie train cakeRecipe: Blondie Train Cake
Although these blondies can be made without the train mould, the mould adds a lot of fun and a gourmet feel to a pretty easy recipe.
Recipe: Caramel Shortbread
For my caramel shortbread, I changed things slightly by making a brown sugar shortbread with a homemade caramel sauce. The brown sugar added a little flavour and a bit of a crunch.
Chocolate TrufflesRecipe: Chocolate Truffles
This year we decided to get a little more creative with the truffles and make milk chocolate, white chocolate, baileys, chocolate orange, mint chocolate and some variations on each (white shell on milk centre etc...).
Roast ChickenRecipe: Broken Down Roast Chicken
This broken down roast chicken recipe is a quick prep and results in a wonderful juicy chicken. Some even say they like it better than a full roast chicken.
Grandma's Apple PieRecipe: Grandma's Apple Pie
This has always been my favourite pie that grandma makes. A simple, classic recipe that showcases the apples.
