“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it; boldness has genius, magic, and power in it.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

From Carol and I and the entire team at Weekend at the Cottage, we wish you infinite happiness, health and prosperity this new year. Whether you’re at home in the city or on a country getaway, look to us as your trusted source for great food and drink recipes, plus ideas about entertaining, gardening and anything else that creates a sense of peace and togetherness in your home. Thank you for embracing our belief that every day should feel like the weekend!

With that in mind, here are some things to look forward to in January:


We’ll be broadcasting our next Facebook LIVE on Tuesday, January 9 at noon EST. We’re going to update you on all of the amazing stuff happening at WATC, plus (drum roll, please) we’re going to announce the winner of the “NAME THAT COOKIE” CONTEST! One lucky winner is going to receive seven signed cookbooks by Canada’s top chefs! If you haven’t already entered, head HERE for contest details and join us for our next Facebook LIVE!!


Weekend at the Cottage returns to our favourite place to shop for the finest provisions, ST. LAWRENCE MARKET. We’ll be there on Saturday, January 27 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Look for us in the south kitchen of the Farmer’s Market, located in the white tent directly behind the large building at the Esplanade and Lower Jarvis. We’ll be handing out samples of something we know you’re going to love – BUTTER CHICKEN CHILI – the recipe compliments of our friends at Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge. Hope to see you there!


We’re back at CHCH Morning Live on Thursday, February 1, this time offering suggestions about menu and décor ideas for a SUPER BOWL PARTY. We’re hoping you’ll tune in and get our take on simple things you can make for your next game day, or night. From a classic TUNA CASSEROLE and BUTTER CHICKEN CHILI to a stadium-sized VEGGIE DIP we’ll help you throw the perfect party. Go team!


We’re really excited about our ever-increasing presence on YouTube, and we’re inviting new friends to take a moment to visit our dedicated CHANNEL. Don’t forget to check out the various PLAYLISTS we’ve created to help you find the content you need when you need it. If you haven’t already, please SUBSCRIBE to the YouTube channel so that you receive notifications when we post new content.


Here are links to last month’s most popular posts: CHOCOLATE RUM BALLS, SALMON KULEBYAKA WITH DILL SAUCE, CELEBRATION SALAD, and for the second month in a row, SIRLOIN TIP ROAST. Don’t forget to forward and share any and all of your favourite posts with your friends and family. If you’re finding something tasty, we bet they will too.


We’ve assembled a bunch of our favourite things for the month of January that we know you’re going to love. If you have a slow cooker, you’re going to want to make our SWEET CORN CHOWDER. If you’re looking for some healthy eats, we have a number of salad options on deck including a KALE, CAULIFLOWER AND BRUSSELS SPROUTS SALAD and our 18+ SALAD, where you get to play chef and pick from over eighteen ingredients to create an awesome meal. Looking for something sweet? Make our friend Sandy’s MARASCHINO CHERRY POUND CAKE. These and many more delicious ideas are coming your way this month.


As always, we’d love to hear from you. Post a comment or send a message directly and also look for us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.

Thanks again for welcoming Weekend at the Cottage into your homes, kitchens and lives. Here’s to an amazing 2018!

Nik and Carol
