Happy Holidays!

Posted by & filed under article, recipe.

As 2015 comes to a close and our anticipation of Santa’s arrival looms, we have shut down operations at the Rancho warehouse. The whole team is off on various adventures, most in search of rest and relaxation and time spent with their families. Heaven only knows they’ve put in a lot of hours over the… Read more »


Date & Walnut Bread

Posted by & filed under recipe.

There’s been no denying it for quite a while now, it’s winter. In my world (and maybe yours soon!), with the colder weather come delightful desserts like this one. This bread is delicious and moist with a very thin, crispy crust that hints of caramel, thanks to the dates and our whole brown sugar. Treat… Read more »


Candied Toffee Almonds

Posted by & filed under recipe.

For those who don’t receive our annual newsletter, we thought you should also know about this recipe! I love these sweet almonds, although I have made the same recipe with a number of other nuts with great success. Almonds, like most nuts, are very nutrient-dense, specifically good for those who don’t get enough calcium in… Read more »


Date Squares

Posted by & filed under recipe.

Growing up, date squares were a dessert my mother would always make. While she’s a very talented cook, she never loved baking sweets. The beauty of these squares is that they’re not nearly as finicky as many desserts, and the flexibility makes them great for those who may not love baking or are still learning…. Read more »


Nut Butter Freezer Fudge

Posted by & filed under recipe.

I know we’ve shared this recipe before in our summer newsletter, but I feel it’s worth revisiting due to its popularity! With only a few ingredients, no cooking skills needed (kid-friendly!) and never-ending variations, this recipe doesn’t get old. We all crave sweets sometimes, so why not indulge in something you can feel good about… Read more »


Recipes from Turkey

Posted by & filed under recipe.

We’ve had such a great response to our summer newsletter, and wanted to share a few of the recipes from Sue and Richard’s cooking class in Istanbul, Turkey. Thanks to everyone who entered for the gift basket giveaway; the contest is now closed and we’ll be drawing a name for the lucky winner on September… Read more »


Banana Walnut Chocolate Chip Muffins: YUM!

Posted by & filed under recipe.

You can have muffins for breakfast, dessert, snacks or whenever you like to eat them; they’re delicious and everyone has a favourite. These are one of my mine and I’ve made them often for myself, friends, family and co-workers. They’re always received with enthusiasm. Careful when you start sharing them though, you’ll be asked to… Read more »


Honey Roasted Walnuts: a sweet treat or salad addition

Posted by & filed under recipe.

With the current popularity of candied pecans, I have found walnuts to be often overlooked as a wonderful alternative. Walnuts have the highest amount of omega-3 fatty acids in comparison to other nuts and are very high in antioxidants, protein, fibre, magnesium, phosphorous and many other important nutrients. As a walnut lover (fresh-crop only!), I… Read more »
