I don’t know about you, but for the holidays, I have four potlucks planned. Therefore, I was in desperate need of ideas. Consulting my good friend Pinterest, there were a few dishes that caught my attention. They looked delicious, easy and not too much trouble to carry.

  1. Healthy, 4-ingredients salmon cucumber rolls:

2. A fancy spinach, pecan, apple and feta salad:

4. Honey buffalo meatballs straight from the slow-cooker:

P.S. If you don’t have time to cook, think charcuterie platter.

I want to teach you How to Assemble a Charcuterie Platter. It is not difficult, but a few basic rules. A Charcuterie platter is an easy and elegant way to entertain especially if you have last minute guests without much time to cook anything.

Have a great stress-free holiday season 🙂

My name is Isabelle (Zaza for the few people who knew me way back then). I am writing to you from my pink office in Montréal, Québec. As a French literature graduate, I soon realized that teaching was not for me and I am now working in an office. I love mountains, trees, soup, and books. In recent years, my passion for food grew bigger and bigger. As a result, I am now going out of my comfort zone in the kitchen and trying to be more adventurous. I invite you to follow me on my journey to learn new techniques, conquer desserts and find exquisite recipes. Along the way, I plan to share what excites me, may it be a newly discovered restaurant, book, artist or Etsy find.
