Happy New Year, and welcome to my very first post of 2016! The holiday season was extremely busy, spent with close friends and family, and of course, a ton of eating. I don’t think you can celebrate the holidays without delicious food? Growing up as an only child, most of my holiday memories were spent hanging out with adults. My mom, dad and I had several holiday traditions which included staying up late on Christmas Eve watching Christmas movies, baking sugar cookies, opening a few presents, while waiting for Santa to come down the chimney. Although these were all wonderful memories, I still can remember wishing I was a little older so I could enjoy coffee, Baileys and whipped cream.
As soon as Derek and I got married and moved into our new home, we started our own Christmas Eve tradition. We order Swiss Chalet and binge watching Home Alone, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story, It’s A Wonderful Life and The Santa Clause all night long. You also better believe our night is filled with one too many Baileys and coffee topped with an abundance of Gay Lea Real Whipped Cream.
I’m also in love with pecan pies around the holidays, but the dry pecans and thick molasses filling can sometimes be a little dry. The Gay Lea Whipped Cream has a light, smooth and incredibly creamy texture that helps to make this pie a deliciously decadent dessert.
Since the holidays are all about giving back, not only do I get to enjoy the delicious taste of real cream in the Gay Lea Real Whipped Cream Light, with 50% less fat than the regular version, I can feel good knowing that Gay Lea has raised over $450,000 in support of co-operative development around the globe, including contributing to organizations in rural Ontario communities.
