Once December 1st hits it is time to start planning, scheming, and dreaming of the holidays. With dreams of sugar plums and tables laden with special treats dancing in our heads this brings us to another edition of the Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club where each month we create a menu from the pages of Cooking Light magazine. Thank you for joining us for our holiday edition. This month we are extolling the virtues of healthy recipes, a theme chosen by our very own Sandi of The Whistlestop Cafe Cooking.

|Operation Truffle as coined by Dina Honke|
But this post is not about me, or even you, it is about the tragic loss of a very special lady that with the help of her cohort Ivonne, a Canadian from Toronto, of Cream Puffs in Venice founded the trail- blazing group The Daring Bakers in 2006 after challenging each other to make bagels. Together they brought the group to national recognition even outside of the blogging community. The Daring Cooks was formed in 2009 and subsequently The Daring Kitchen brought it altogether. As a member of the group of thousands we were given a "top secret" challenge each month, baked our little hearts out in our home kitchens, and then we all posted our recipe on the same day inundating the blogosphere with our creativity. It was amazing to see how each Daring Baker added their own personal touch to the challenge.

|Pithivier with Watercress and Ricotta|
With one friend in Venice and another heading to Paris and Spain for several months I have been dreaming of loitering on the French Bank, eavesdropping on French philosophers over strong coffee at Cafe de Flore, buying cheese and baguettes for an impromptu lunch at the market, skipping down the steps at Montmartre and indulging in far too many trips to Laduree and Pierre Herme. As a Canadian, France is on my mind today with visions of soldiers storming Normandy or valiantly trying to survive at Vimy Ridge. In my minds eye I see row upon row of white crosses for unknown soldiers at Flanders Fields and poppies with their crimson heads bowing in the gentle breezes. I am thankful that my thoughts and memories do not mimic those of the soldier during wartime, that I can travel the world uninhibited and feel welcome there. Thank you to the thousands upon thousands of soldiers who have made this possible. We must remember today and always.
