Avoid Disappointment!

Please remember to pre-order your 2018 Holiday Baking by calling us at the store!


The cut-off for placing your Christmas orders is Thursday, December 20th at 4pm.

We will be taking orders placed after this date but they may or may not be able to be completely filled and will depend
on the product available at that time and the upcoming schedule.

Some holiday baking has a limited quantity and when it’s gone it’s gone! Pre-order ASAP to avoid disappointment!
Some pre-ordered items may only be available frozen – please ask about this when placing orders. 

Baking on December 24th will be done for pre-orders only and while we will likely have some items available, Christmas Eve Day won’t be a regular baking day so products should be ordered ahead of time.

Enjoy a couple of our favorite Christmas recipes. These are long-standing family favourites, tried-and-true!

Stuffing Recipe 

This is a  fantastic recipe we have been making for years. Designed to be used with our own Newton’s No Gluten breads, even your non-gluten-free guests will be clamoring for second helpings!

*dairy free, egg free option


  • 1 loaf of Newton’s No Gluten 4 Grain+Chia Sandwich Bread, thawed
  • 3 Tbsp. poultry seasoning
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 Tbsp. butter, melted (*Earth Balance Dairy Free Spread)
  • 2 cups hot chicken stock or water
  • 3 Tbsp. bacon fat, previously rendered and reserved or olive oil
  • 3 large stalks celery, diced
  • 3 medium onions, diced
  • 1 medium apple, cored and diced
  • 6 stalks fresh parsley, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup currants, washed then soaked in 1/2 cup of water to plump, then drained



  • Cube sliced bread into bite sized pieces.
  • Put into a large bowl. Do not dry bread cubes.
  • Sprinkle with poultry seasoning and salt. Gently mix in.
  • Mix melted butter and hot stock in a bowl.
  • Pour butter and hot stock mixture over bread cubes 1/2 a cup at a time.
  • Mix cubes after each addition for even distribution. Set aside.
  • Heat bacon fat in a medium frying pan. Sautee onions and celery until partially cooked (approx. 5 min.).
  • Remove from heat and add apples, garlic, currants and parsley. Mix well.
  • Add contents of frying pan into bread cubes. Mix well.
  • Lightly press into greased 8×8 pan.
  • Tightly cover pan with foil and bake at 400F for 30 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to 350F and continue to bake for an additional 30 minutes.
  • Enjoy!

Cranberry Recipe 

 A great holiday recipe that perfectly compliments our stuffing recipe!


  • 1 package fresh cranberries, washed
  • 1/2 cup sugar — less or more depending on your taste for tartness
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice


  • Place all of the ingredients into a medium sauce pan
  • On medium heat – bring just to boil , stirring often
  • Reduce heat & simmer for about 5 minutes or until mixture starts to thicken and the majority of skins “pop”, stirring often
  • Remove from heat (add 1 tsp of Grand Marnier – optional) and let cool, stirring occasionally

Once cool, store in a closed container in refrigerator for up to 3 days. Sauce can also be frozen & reheated after being thawed, with good results.

NOTE * if you like your cranberries chunky, then stir very gently to avoid mashing them but be sure to scrape the bottom of the pan to avoid burning.

I just wanted to say thank you for your great service! I recently visited your store for the first time, with my 18 month old son, who is sensitive to dairy, wheat and eggs. I have been searching for alternative food products for a while now, and was amazed to find food that I didn’t know existed – such as lactose free cheese.

I am very excited to know that I am not the only one out there having to work around special dietary concerns! Your service was very helpful, and I will definitely be back. Thank you!

I actually stopped by today and a LOVELY young woman helped me to buy a plethora of fabulous finds! I can’t tell you how refreshing it was to have a large selection of foods we can eat coupled with really knowledgeable staff who have tried the products. I’ve been making everything from scratch since my children’s food allergies were identified. It’s very comforting to know that when I go back to work there are some convenience products that will give my family fabulous nutrition and are perfectly safe! Thank you for operating such a wonderful store! I’ll be back regularly! Lucy G.
