Forecasters weren’t lying when they said Winnipeg will experience its coldest Christmas since 1996.
The city was placed under an extreme cold warning early Sunday, setting the stage for bitterly cold air that moved into southern Manitoba this weekend. Environment Canada says wind chill values will be near or below -40 at times through the Christmas period.
WINNIPEG — Not feeling ‘jolly’ enough this week? The pressures of managing multiple dinners, wrapping gifts and navigating grocery stores can be quite stressful during the Holiday season. The Holidays are supposed to be a time to sit back, relax and reconnect with family and friends, so why not set some time aside to do just that? I always find I am most relaxed over a stiff drink or a hot drink shared with friends, which is why I created my Spiked Canadian Hot Chocolate.
NEEPAWA, Man. — Christmas is upon us, which means that so too is the season of sweets and baking. Last week’s Neepawa Banner & Press had a collection of seasonal recipes and no matter your taste — sweet or savoury, simple or extravagant— there’s a recipe out there. From cookies to truffles, mincemeat to bars and sausage rolls to cakes, everyone has their favourite Christmas treat.
Almost a decade ago, I shared a confession about my favourite holiday-related food, the much reviled and ridiculed Christmas cake.
