Happy Black Friday! It’s not really a thing in Canada – our day to trample one another for a sale is Boxing Day – but it is just about the time we start planning our Christmas shopping. So I’ve put together a list of gifts I love, for all the foodies you love! Here they are, in no particular order:
I’ve got a Product of GIR gift for you, as promised in my Holiday Gifts for Foodies post. I’ve been a fan of their products since they launched their first spatula on Kickstarter long ago. Sturdy tools with just just the right amount of flex, they’re BPA-free and heat-resistant up to 550ºF with a unibody design that eliminates hiding places for bacteria (I’ll never again touch a wooden stick spatula)… and they come in so many pretty colours!
Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends and readers! I’m sure everyone has got their menu all planned and maybe even underway, but I just wanted to celebrate along with you. If you are looking for last minute recipes, check out my Thanksgiving recipe collection.
Here are a few of my favourites.
I’ve got wonderful Peanut Butter Balls – also known as Buckeyes, depending on where you live – for you today, but first….
Oh my god. If only you all could what is happening in our apartment at this moment. Adarsh is assembling an adorable wooden kitchen set that my mom bought online for Theo baby – it came in many, many numbered pieces. My husband is many, many things – but “handy” is not one of them. I’m dying over here, so funny. This is the real-time narrative:
I know it’s still November, but it’s Christmas in my heart – so today, we have a Christmas cocktail!
