Culinary Cottage


Victoria Day weekend is but a few weeks away – and with it, what I consider the official kickoff to summertime, including backyard BBQs, social events, and evenings that seem to last forever. To help celebrate the season, you may want to check out today’s featured brand, a new collection of culinary delights produced by Orange Crate Food Co. and Cottage Life magazine.

Cottage Life Southwest Cajun Hot DipAs you can imagine, the Cottage Life lineup of products are designed with entertaining and effortless preparation in mind. With 40 products in total, the lineup includes mouthwatering dips, seasonings, sauces and more! Today, I’m walking you through the line to get your belly rumbling!

Cottage Life Salad DressingCottage Life Salad Dressings – $8.99 each
First up, every good dinner party needs a delicious salad. Why not top it off with one of Cottage Life’s new gourmand, creamy salad dressings? Available in Creamy Italian, Balsamic & Olive Oil, and Gorgonzola & Pear, these scrumptious dressings are gluten-free and vegan (save for the Gorgonzola variety), and add a vibrant pop of flavour to summer vegetables. Bring a bottle separate from a salad for a potluck, and let the hostess keep it afterwards for a special treat.

Cottage Life Hot DipCottage Life Hot Dips – $7.99 each
A delicious hot dip can be the focal point of a party, as the guests circle and not-so-casually come back for seconds and thirds. The Cottage Life lineup includes six different hot dip mixes, which, when blended with other fresh ingredients, make for perfect appetizers or party snacks. Buy an entire set as a houseguest gift when a pal invites you to their cabin for the weekend, and make it an event to try a different one each night.

Cottage life Burger SpicesCottage Life Burger Spices – $7.99 each
Summer just isn’t summer without biting into a fresh-grilled, ideally homemade burger during a backyard bash. Spice up your next burger by sprinkling in one of Cottage Life’s three tantalizing burger spices – ranging from creole-style Cajun to spicy Tex Mex to rustic Canadian. The entire collection makes an awesome Father’s Day gift for any grill master in the family.

Cottage Life SalsasCottage Life Salsas – $8.99 each
My husband and I are big salsa aficionados, always looking for new varieties to try – and the five on offer from Cottage life are all equally appealing. Whether you’re looking for something sweeter, like Ginger Peach or Mango Pineapple, or something scorching hot, like Spicy Sundried Tomato or the deadly Ghost Pepper salsa, you’ve got options. Or go for something classic with an Italian twist, like the rustic Tomato & Basil blend. Bring a few bags of gourmet chips to a friend’s housewarming and serve up some fun this summer.

Cottage Life Dockside Drink RimmersDockside Drink Rimmers – $7.99 each
If your idea of cooling off in the summer heat involves sipping on an alcoholic beverage, then you’ll want to invest in one of these creative drink rimmers for Caesars and Margaritas. Simply sprinkle some into a shallow bowl or plate, wet the rim of your cup, and twist it into the rimmer a few times for a lip-smacking pop of flavour with every sip. I love the idea of bringing this along with all the fixings to make your favourite cocktails at a friend’s bash.

Cottage Life Dinner SpicesCottage Life Dinner Spices – $7.99 each
I’m not a meat eater, but even I have to admit that the sound of these spice mixes is pretty scrumptious! Available in 10 different varieties for all cuts of meat (plus some offbeat picks like poutine gravy and homefry potato seasoning), these spice packets are an ideal pick for anyone looking to unleash a secret weapon at their next dinner bash. Gift the entire collection to a fab hostess in your life, or pair them with a gift certificate to a local butcher for the BBQ master in your household (they also work great in tandem with the Burger Spices mentioned above).

Cottage Life Cool DipsCottage Life Cold Dips – $3.99 each
Finally, summer veggies and crackers have found a new best friend in Cottage Life’s array of six refreshing cool dips. With intriguing combinations like Maple Chipotle and Garlic & Sundried Tomato, there’s a scrumptious, easy-to-make dip mix for every taste in your family’s palette. Plus, when dip’s involve, suddenly the kids become a lot more willing to nosh on some fresh summer vegetables. They also make fab stocking stuffers for anyone that loves to entertain year-round!
