June 29th is National Waffle Iron Day, and who am I to ignore a holiday? I’ll be whipping up these Breakfast Poutine Waffles on the 29th, and I thought I’d share the recipe with all of you so that you can do the same. 🙂 Today’s post also includes some wonderful sweet and savory waffle recipes from the wonderful group of tastemakers from the Sunday Supper Movement. So, be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of the post, you’ll be glad that you did.
Get togethers in the summer are so much fun! Outdoor parks, camps, beaches or even backyard BBQ’s are great venues for get togethers with friends and family. A group of tastemakers from the Sunday Supper Movement and I will be sharing a fantastic variety of foods which are perfect for those potluck get togethers. My contribution to this event will be this recipe for an Easy Summer Chickpea Salad.
Have you ever thrown a tapas party? A group of tastemakers from the Sunday Supper Movement and I will be sharing a fantastic variety of tapas foods, including desserts and beverages with all of you. Since this week’s theme was tapas, I thought of sharing this recipe for these Roasted Bell Pepper Goat Cheese Bites with all of you.
As you probably know, tapas is the Spanish term for appetizers, or small snacks. I don’t know about you, but I love the concept of having small bite-sized portions of food, especially when entertaining. As a guideline, if you are hosting a 1-2 hour cocktail tapas party, you should plan to serve 6-8 bites per person; whereas a tapas dinner party will require 12-15 bites per person.
Who likes hot and spicy food? A group of tastemakers from the Sunday Supper Movement and I will be sharing a fantastic variety of spicy foods, including desserts and beverages with all of you. My contribution will be this recipe for Spicy Penne all’Arrabbiata. With only a few simple ingredients and just 30 minutes, you can make this classic Italian pasta dish.
Happy Sunday! Every Sunday, I collaborate with other “Sunday Supper” bloggers on a theme. Since next week-end is Mother’s Day, and since it also fits with today’s Sunday Supper theme, I thought it would be appropriate to share these Easy Classic Date Squares with all of you.
I was raised in an Italian neighborhood in Montreal – tomatoes growing in small backyard gardens, Sunday lunches lasting an entire afternoon; those sorts of things were commonplace. But growing up in Montreal also meant that I had the privilege of being exposed to so many wonderful French Canadian food traditions, such as this recipe for Homemade Quebec Maple Baked Beans. Today’s Sunday Supper theme was regional specialties, and I just had to sing the praises of these baked beans!
Have you ever wondered why certain foods are associated with certain events? I am sure that most of you associate the concept of finger foods with the Super Bowl (although I personally associate them more with the World Cup!). But what if I told you that finger foods can make for some great dinners, too? Today, I am joined by a group of talented bloggers from the Sunday Supper Movement to demonstrate how finger foods can be just that. My contribution to this event is a Vegetarian Piadina Sandwich.
