This is the juice to serve with your Christmas Brunch. It will add a nice splash of festive colour to your brunch and is a slight little change from the usual mimosas that are often served in the morning. And for the record, I think that champagne would go just fine with this as well. 😉

  • 1 can frozen Raspberry concentrate (prepared following directions.)
  • 3 cups Cranberry, Apple or White Grape Juice.

All you have to do is: Mix together and refrigerate until chilled.

Garnish:
Float raspberries, lime or orange slices and sprigs of mint.

Artichoke and Sheep Cheese Frittata (also known as the San Remo Frittata)

ingredients-sm

This recipe is one of my Dad’s favourite recipes to prepare for his guests. He finds it quick to toss together, easy to make, and his guests always love it.

What you’ll need:

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pukka sauce (or hot pepper sauce)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 Cup of canned artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 1/3 Cup roasted sweet pimentos, drained and chopped
  • 1/3 Cup sheep cheese (amount is before it is grated)
  • ½ Cup of  mozzarella cheese (amount is before it is grated)
  • 2 Tablespoons of olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons shredded Cheddar Cheese

What you do:

  1. Grate the cheeses.
  2. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  3. In a large bowl whisk eggs, pukka sauce and salt together.
  4. Stir artichokes, pimentos, and cheese into the mixture.
  5. In a 10 inch non-stick saucepan with oven proof handle over medium heat, add oil and garlic, and sauté for about 2 minutes. Careful not to burn the garlic – stir frequently.
    (TIP – if your handle is plastic you can make an oven proof handle by wrapping handle with several layers of tinfoil)
  6. Pour egg mixture into pan.
  7. Stir the olive oil and garlic into the mixture.
  8. Place in oven and bake for 18 to 20 minutes until centre is set and top is  browning.
  9. If the egg is cooked but not brown, place under broiler for 2-3 minutes until browned.
  10. Cool for a few minutes, then with a spatula go around the edges to loosen the frittata. Put a large, warm plate on top of the pan and flip over quickly.
  11. With another warm plate, cover and flip again, so the side with the browned eggs is now facing up.
  12. Cut into wedges and garnish by sprinkling cheddar cheese over top and placing one slice of a red or green pepper on top.
  13. Serve with salsa and multigrain toast.

Tomorrow is the first day of December and for me, that signals the time to begin preparations for the Holiday Season.

I always looked forward to December the 1st as that was the day we put up the tree.  It meant the beginning of Christmas decorating, baking cookies, pouring Amaretto over the Fruit Cakes (and taking a sip!) wrapping gifts, and generally getting ready for the family and friends that would share the seasons festivities with us.

I am a bit behind this year as I have a cold, but I will at least be thinking about what I will do.  My preparations always start with a list. Rick rolls his eyes and says I make lists of my lists, which is true because I need to keep myself organized!  First I need a theme – well that is easy as it is Christmas so the colors are red, white and green or a derivative. This year I will be using the Christmas Tree as my main focus.

My first set of lists is for the Christmas Eve Dinner, the Christmas morning breakfast, a snack list, beverage list and dessert list which will generate my food shopping list. And so it goes, five lists to make a food shopping list!

Speaking of Christmas lists… we can help with your shopping list!! We are offering 40% off our gift certificates until December 10th so if you want to give someone you love a night or two of pampering then send them to Annes Oceanfront Hideaway (or if you just want to buy it for yourself to save the 40% that is ok too… we won’t tell!!). The only catch is that it must be used up before the end of March, 2010.
