For these little miracles we'll be forever grateful to our past resident chef, Josie Pontarelli! 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!Asparagus MimosaNothing says spring more than asparagus. This attractive dish is ideal for a buffet table or a special dinner.Spicy Rosemary NutsNuts with a memorable kick. Seasoned to perfection, Jill's rosemary nuts have just the right amount of spice.

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.Roasted Herb Spatchcocked ChickenSave yourself time and effort with this easy spatchcock chicken.

Fire In The Kitchen spices are the secret to a truly next-level meatball. We used "3 Alarm" for a zesty kick. Or for that BBQ taste without any grilling, try them with "Smoke Eater".
