Onion Chutney

I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season! I’ve been taking it easy chez maman et papa in Ontario and relishing the finer things (like having someone else take care of the cooking).

Summer fondue

Using the barbecue is definitely one of the highlights of summertime for me. I used to be afraid to use it- the hissing of the propane and the high heat was intimidating. But after a bit of practice, I can happily say that I now know my way around the barbecue almost as much as I know my way around an oven. And in terms of this idea that a  ...
