Tips for holiday party planning – my November @AlbertaatNoon column

I had a lot of fun talking to CBC Radio One’s Alberta at Noon host Frank Rackow about planning a holiday party last week. You can catch the podcast of that interview here. I’m on between 16.25 and 23.55 in the broadcast.

All the recipes for this broadcast can be found here.

Later this week, I’ll be posting my gift giving ideas for the food lovers on your list and some great ideas for small groups that would like to have big fun.

Until next time, remember to Savour it All.
Cheers,
Karen
