I want you to have a really great weekend. I want you to do and see all the things you want to; to sleep in late if that’s your thing, or get up with the sun and get ‘er done – whatever floats your boat.
I want you to have a relaxing weekend where you find snippets of peace and happiness in between your yoga class, your hurried trek to get the kids to swimming lessons on time, that unexpected drop in by your in-laws. I want you to have the sort of weekend where you say to your self: “Self, let’s do this!” and you go on, happily, calmly and without locking your keys in the car or putting the milk in the oven and the muffins in the fridge. Deep breath – don’t forget it’s the weekend.
I want you to have a delicious weekend: double long cappuccino with the foam just right, your favourite deli’s sandwich, perfectly wrapped in waxed paper, eaten joyfully in the sun on a park bench, maybe something grilled to embrace the warmer weather if it is indeed warmer where you are.
If you are a frequent foodie here at Feasts for All Seasons, or even if this is your first time stopping by, you probably like to cook. If you like to cook, you’re likely interested in recipes. And if you’re anything like me, your recipes and cooking ideas end up on small scraps of paper strewn about the house, easily lost and hard to find. And what if you need to share a recipe? Do you scrawl it on an equally unceremonious bit of paper and hand it over? Doesn’t your grandmother’s blue ribbon potato salad recipe deserve better?
I have a solution for us all: beautiful letterpress recipe cards from Port Paper Co. Meticulous craftsmanship and details meet functionality in these sets of 10 cards. Each set also includes a kitchen conversion chart for handy reference and a pre-printed recipe from, you guessed it, Feasts for All Seasons. But they do more than just recipe cards – check their site for greeting cards, journals, gift tags, custom work and so much more.
Aren’t they lovely?
Luckily, I have 2 sets to give away: one baking themed, one BBQ themed.
For a chance to win, simply share this post, tell a friend or visit Port Paper Co. then leave a comment here stating your preference: “BBQ” or “Baking”. Comment as many times as you like.
Two winners will be chosen at random. Contest closes at midnight Saturday May 18, 2013. Winners will be announced Sunday May 19, 2013.
I have a confession of sorts. It may not come as that much of a surprise, but I pretty much philosophically believe that most things, savoury things, are easily improved with the addition of olive oil, lemon zest and garlic. It’s a magical combination that serves all manner of things. Potatoes? Check. Steak? Check. Chicken? Come on now, that’s too easy. Pasta? For sure! Fish and seafood … sorry, what was that?

Remember a couple years ago when mojitos were all the rage? Every restaurant and bar was flaunting cool, minty drinks left and right and the lure of sugary rum and bracing lime was hard to resist. For some of us the craze never stopped. Continue Reading →
