Recipe: Date Balls

At this time of year we’re all looking for that one simple food to bring, take, give and gift. All of us have that one go-to recipe that isn’t gourmet or expensive but never disappoints. For me, that is my mother’s recipe for date balls. Many recipes claim to use everyday ingredients with elegant results, but these date balls will leave your foodie friends scratching their heads as to how you made crisped rice cereal the tastiest thing on the cookie table.

Grandma’s Potato Salad with Twists

My grandmother cooked potatoes with every meal. She peeled russets with a small hardened steel paring knife. The parings were so thin you could almost see through them.

Choose Your Own Adventure: Potato Salad

Simplicity

There is a great deal of comfort in the fact that food can be relied upon.

Gran’s Lasagna

I know everyone has one of these dishes. It’s easy to prepare, doesn’t make too much of a mess, it’s easy to serve, and everyone loves it. My answer to this is “Gran’s” lasagna. I’ve prepared it to take to neighbors following a funeral, taken it to potluck dinners, made it in response to a request for a special dinner and, most importantly, it has become a Christmas Eve tradition.

Rotini with Fresh Tomatoes, Avocado and Sesame Seeds

This is my favourite pasta dish. The no cook sauce is prepared ahead of time to allow the flavours to meld, and the avocado and sesame seeds give it a unique and rich taste. The fact that it is vegetarian is just and added bonus. You will not miss the meat in this dish.

Jodi vs. Martha: Black Forest Cookies

It’s Jodi vs. Martha time again!
It’s been awhile since I last attempted one of Martha Stewart’s admittedly excellent recipes, but Martha caught me in her net yet again with her “Martha Stewart Cookie of the Day” email about Black Forest Cookies.
Three kinds of chocolate? Butter? CHERRIES? I’m in.
