Trifle is always a popular holiday dessert- it feeds a crowd and is made well ahead of time, with no last minute preparation. Frozen berries are an economical alternative to the usual fresh berries- and they are always ripe.
Strawberry Dulce de Leche Trifle
This cold dessert soup can also be used as a sit down first course- very refreshing in the summertime. Thanks to the use of our always-ripe frozen strawberries, you can make it year round.
Whole Wheat Scones
This low fat treat doesn’t sacrifice flavour for reduced fat. Share with others within a day or so of eating, or freeze, as the lower fat level affects keeping quality.
Mincemeat Pinwheel Cookies
Pinwheel cookies are a Christmas classic. This version uses pre-rolled puff pastry as the dough, and seasonal mincemeat as the filling. Much easier than the traditional version with two colours of home-made cookie dough stacked and rolled.
Chocolate Cherry Brownie Cookies
Melted chocolate makes this drop cookie extra delicious. Look for dried cherries in the bulk area of the grocery store.
Holiday Truffle Fudge
This cross between fudge and a chocolate truffle is pretty on a dessert tray, and makes a great gift.
Maple Balsamic Fig Salad with Goat Cheese Croquettes
In the winter, sweeter Mission figs are in season, in summer the less sweet green figs. Walnuts give this salad a bitter edge to balance the sweetness of the vinaigrette and figs.
Crunchy Green Salad with Beets and Raspberry Vinaigrette
PC Lettuce Wraps are so crisp you can pick this salad up and eat with your hands! Celery and pecans give extra crunch.
Cranberry Bran Muffins
Make a batch on the weekend, individually wrap and freeze to enjoy all week. Add a yogurt for a nutritious, quick breakfast.
Creamy Tomato-Orange Soup
Don’t be put off by “creamy”- this soup isn’t heavy or thick like a traditional cream soup. Its refreshing orange twist accentuates the pure tomato flavour.
