Salted Caramel Sauce

“Salted” and “caramel” are two words that make many people get misty in the eyes and weak in the knees.

You can buy lovely salted caramel in the stores to drizzle over ice cream, cake, pie or just your tongue, but you can also make it easily at home, and for a lot less money. Do share the wealth — what a great holiday gift this makes.

Braised Cauliflower

Any time capers mingle with anchovies and garlic, I’m happy. You might think these are very strong flavours, but when they are used sparingly they add a lovely layer of salty/savory flavour to whatever dish they grace.

When I serve this to my family, do I mention that there are anchovies in it? Nope, I don’t. Do they think it’s delicious? Yup, they do.

Lemon bar fans, you know who you are

There are certain baked goods that elicit a fierce loyalty among fans. They bring out strong feelings about how they should be prepared (often the same way they were prepared in said fans’ childhoods). And someone else’s failure to appreciate them can be met with shock and confusion.

Lemon tarts, or lemon bars as they are also known, are such a baked good.
