With restrictions in Toronto, and far too much familiarity with family and roommates, how will you make the holidays special this year or the winter more pleasant? There are only three of us in my family, so I have to be inventive. I’m tasking each of them to make one spectacular recipe each week in December. In case I am the only one participating, I’m doing a few small things for myself as well, such as growing sprouts and other veggies indoors, repainting parts of the house and clearing out…read more
