Lamb TagineThis is one of those great Sunday meals. The aromas will tantalize you as this dish simmers either on the stovetop or in the oven.
Crunchy Garlic ChickenThe secret to this easy and delicious garlic lover's chicken recipe is the Caesar Dressing & Dip from The Garlic Box.Josie’s Black Bean BrowniesNo one will ever guess that there are black beans in these delicious, moist, gluten-free brownies. For these little miracles we'll be forever grateful to our past resident chef, Josie Pontarelli! TourtièreThis is a special traditional treat Jill makes every Christmas Eve. The pastry is very easy to prepare and so tender and delicious. Serve this with Jill’s Table Apple Tamarind chutney to make it extra special.Orange Honey Cake with BerriesThis cake is the epitome of the Mediterranean - but with a local touch. A combination of cornmeal and flour is the base for this cake and olive oil replaces the typical butter. Orange juice and zest give this a sunny citrus flavour and of course, the finishing touch is drizzling the warm cake with a syrup of honey and water. One of our favourites!Jill’s Mexican Chicken LasagnaFamily favourite. One of the most delicious and easy meals you can ever put together.Spicy Rosemary NutsNuts with a memorable kick. Seasoned to perfection, Jill's rosemary nuts have just the right amount of spice. You're guaranteed to eat this delicious snack by the handful - be sure to use a spoon to serve!Apple CakeThis recipe originated from the Budget Cutters Cookbook that appeared in The London Free Press in November 1982. It was a recipe from Mrs. Gordon H. Willert of Thedford. I always fall back on this recipe when I’m in a hurry. I particularly like it because it only uses one bowl to mix the batter and it produces a flavourful, dense, moist cake. This is a good recipe when apples are in season.Holiday Salad with Roasted SquashA deliciously hearty vegetarian offering for your Christmas table.Chicken ProvençalIn under an hour, Jill's Chicken Provençal recipe elevates just a handful of ingredients into a sublime classic. It's a great option for informal entertaining or a quick midweek family dinner (and is tested to work perfectly in our 20th anniversary oval casserole!).Blueberry Coffee CakeThe following blueberry coffee cake is a great recipe to use local blueberries. It’s not that blueberries are just so delicious and fresh and can be enjoyed with your breakfast or turned into a multitude of desserts — they also freeze well and their shelf life is much longer than many other berries.
Peach Thyme LoafWith an abundance of local peaches in store in August, this is the perfect time to try this loaf! A bit of thyme added to the recipe provides a unique and savoury flavour.Potato and Cauliflower GratinGive your family holiday feasts a delicious twist with this classic potato gratin that adds sweet potato and cauliflower topped with breadcrumbs and cheese. Yum! Cauliflower Mac and CheeseIt may not be the healthiest but nothing transports you back to being a kid like creamy mac and cheese.

Rhubarb Coffee CakeSpring treats. Enjoy ribbons of juicy pink rhubarb topped with a sweet streusel. This cake is perfect for spring brunch, snack time or dessert.
Chocolate Mocha Pots de CrèmeThis French classic has been around since the 17th century. By adding espresso, you take the already decadent dessert to a whole new level. The perfect ending to any meal.
Maple Walnut PieTap into your sweet tooth with a maple dessert. Spring in Canada means lots of maple syrup is flowing and this is just one way to use it in an indulgent dessert.Maple Baked BeansA Canadian classic!

Cheddar Cheese Coins make a great nibbly with a glass of wine. Having just one is not an option 😉 Maple Shortbread CookiesNothing says Canada quite like maple! Local maple syrup sweetens these easy buttery cookies and is used in the decorative glaze.Almond BiscottiBiscotti are a popular cookie from Italy. It’s a twice-baked, crunchy cookie shaped like a half moon. The Italians dip biscotti in coffee or in sweet Italian dessert wine, such as Vin Santo.Cheddar Shortbread Crusted OlivesAs served at Jill's 2018 Open House.
A while back, a customer recommended wrapping cheddar shortbread dough around olives. What a great idea!Emily Richards’ Quick Cinnamon RollsIf yeasted cinnamon rolls and baking powder biscuits had a child, this would be the result.
