As part of FBC’s 5th anniversary we’re sharing a special 24-day Holiday Countdown from December 1st to the 24th. We’re going back in time to reconnect with some very special FBC Members. These Canadian food bloggers were among the very first FBCers to be showcased in our Friday Featured Blogger series that still runs today (we’ve featured almost 250 bloggers in five years!).

How has your blog evolved over the past five years?
I’ve gone from writing about restaurants to recipe development as well as being fortunate enough to participate in brand ambassadorships as well as acquire sponsorship for various opportunities.
What’s your favourite holiday tradition?
My favourite holiday tradition revolves around food (go figure!). Making our family pecan tarts by the hundreds is the tradition that seems to grow every year in terms of quantity, production and people we manage to recruit to help.
Share a favourite holiday recipe with our readers
Without a doubt my mom’s holiday turkey recipe.
What are the must-have staples in your holiday pantry?
- Semi-sweet chocolate and mixed nuts for baking
- A good panettone (Muzzi or Loison) for when receiving guests or for gifts
- Homemade jams or preserves
