“One For All, All For One” Chicken Cordon Bleu

This entree is easy and delicious! It’s one of my favourites! Try to use the largest chicken breasts you can find so you’ll be able to roll them easier. Great recipe to make ahead and freeze too!

Award Winning Chocolate Chili

How sweet is this, chili and chocolate, two of my favourites! It’s a delicious combination of savoury and a little sweet. This recipe makes a big ‘batch’ of my favourite comfort food! You choose the ingredients that you like and omit the rest it’s a very flexible and forgiving dish! It might look like it takes a lot of time, but it’s fairly quick to make and the flavour improves with time – so double your recipe and you’re in chili heaven!
