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! 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!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.

This is a good recipe when apples are in season.Dessert CrepesLooking for something special for dessert? Dessert crepes are a year-round favourite.
