Dijon-crusted flank steak recipe

Spring has arrived (finally!) and we’re in the mood to celebrate with a delicious spring dinner party menu. While it might too chilly to grill our Dijon-crusted flank steaks outside, sliding them under the broiler will do until we’re ready to dig out the barbecue for all of our favourite grilling recipes. With a sparkling Campari lemonade, a gorgeous sunset-colored cocktail garnished with a bright slice of citrus, welcome spring and say goodbye to old man winter for another year.

Ginger-berry cookies & cream

A takeoff on the British trifle, this sherry-spiked dish is easy to prepare in advance. Pop it in the refrigerator while you’re cooking, and it’s ready to go as soon as your guests eat their last forkful of steak.
