Juicy Watermelon Sorbet
Very nice and refreshing! It feels like you're cheating! I would have rated this 5 stars but I added a few things. I used a little less water for my simple syrup, 2 1/2 cups instead. Also, I added a dash of salt. It really brings out the watermelon flavor! YUM!

Tourtiere (Meat Pie)
This was a good recipe. I omitted the potatoes since my Mom and grandmother's recipes didn't have them in them. I doubled the recipe, and baked it in a jelly roll pan. I baked it at 450 degrees F for 15 mins, then lowered the temp to 350 degrees for the remaining 30 mins. It was GONE at Christmas dinner and was asked for the recipe from all who were there! I made it a day ahead, and just reheated it the next day. This recipe lends itself well to that and freezing for a later date.

The best wintertime meals need a long, slow simmer while you're doing something else.
