New Year, New Food

The new year is upon us, and I’ve started thinking about new recipes and dishes to add to my repertoire. For those that don’t classify themselves as “foodies”, it’s always great to step out of your comfort zone and try something that has more flavour and has different ingredients you aren’t normally used to.

Holiday Potlucks (Minus the Meat)

Holiday season is around the corner, and as we start to think of ideas for dinner parties and potlucks, I thought I would provide a good guidelines to consider when having vegetarians guests.
