What to ask Santa For

We put our heads together and found the must have Christmas gift of the season. All you last minute shoppers, you're welcome! Noble handcrafted bourbon maple syrup is by far the tastiest maple syrup around. It's delicious by itself, on pancakes and pretty much anything else. Here are a few recipe suggestions from the staff at BRANDFX. Enjoy.

 

Spiked Maple Cranberry Sauce

3 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 cup Bourbon Maple Syrup
3 tbsp packed dark brown sugar
1 cinnamon stick
1 pinch of ground cloves
1 pinch of ground pepper
1 tablespoon orange zest

On Set With LEONE

 

It may have been close to 30 degrees outside, but behind the scenes with Leone it was all about boots, fur accents and other fall fashions. This year the colour palette is bold and the clothes spectacular. The atmosphere was any fashion addict’s dream come true.

Avast ye Landlubber!

For the last few years we've participated in the Annual North Shore Credit Union Charity Golf Tournament by sponsoring one of their beverage carts. Last year we challenged physics by creating a giant golf hat to sit on top of the cart (click here to see it, in all its plaid glory). This year we thought we'd take it one step further and try to cover the whole golf cart, and shiver me timbers we did it!
 

Recipe for Deliciousness

 

From Sweden to Japan, the people here at BFX come from a mosaic of different backgrounds. Our heritages do have one thing in common though, a history of tasty food. What does this kaleidoscope of culture taste like, you might ask? We decided to do some hard investigating...and had a cultural potluck.

Our office is no stranger to good wine. After recently working on a couple of fun wine related projects (like the newly designed See Ya Later Ranch website) we almost feel like calling ourselves wine snobs. Almost.

Time for a Wake-Up Call

A couple of years ago - April 30th, 2010 to be exact - on a luxurious week away in Puerto Vallarta with my husband Tim, I had an awakening moment in my life that still brings tears to my eyes to this day. We left Mexico having sponsored two little girls named Valleria and Jennifer. These girls and their families lived at the city dump and struggled daily for the simple things we all take for granted such as food and shelter. Yet, every child I met at the dump that day was full of laughter and hugs. A day I will never, ever forget.
