#StyleFoodLove Slow Cooked Sausage and Beef Ragout

This slow cooked meal is a french favourite, not to be confused with the Italian Ragu sauce.  Although I did serve this over rigatoni for dinner.  Ragout contains enough heartiness to be a main dish stew, or can be eaten over your favourite pasta, or with crusty baguette slices. Ingredients: Organic stewing beef – cut in pieces 2 chorizo sausages – removed from casings and broken into pieces 1 yellow onion – diced 3 cloves garlic – diced 1.5 cups carrot – grated 1 cup potato – grated 1 celery stick – chopped 1/2 pint grape tomatoes 1 can chopped...

#StyleFoodLove Funfetti Sugar Cookies

Legit, there is nothing funner than this cookie.  It’s fun to make…and super fun to eat! What is funfetti?  Well, essentially it’s any cake or cookie that has loads of sprinkles in the batter, so it’s colourful, and well…fun! And these cookies are a perfect Easter treat.  There is 2 hours of chill time included in this recipe, so make sure to account for that in your prep time.
