For some parts of the country, another long weekend is ahead of us – perhaps an extra day to just get out of the city and reconnect with nature. If you’re fortunate enough to be heading up to a cottage, here are some yummy recipe ideas to help you through the weekend!

Serve up your family (or friends!) an indulgent breakfast with croissant sticky-bun bread pudding or our best buttermilk pancakes, perfect for feeding a crowd. For a delicious syrup variation, our kitchen intern Christina suggests adding ground cinnamon to maple syrup.

When you’re lounging in the sun, always make sure to wear sunscreen and stay hydrated. Try our thirst-quenching spiked lemonade. Or for a kid-friendly version, make a batch of fruity fresh strawberry lemonade.

Watch the sunset disappear behind the lake while dining on chili-espresso ribs. Serve them up with a super easy sweet and sour coleslaw, baby red potato salad and refreshing watermelon & cucumber salad.
