Ho, Ho, Ho and Merry Christmas everyone! This week our annual Christmas radio show was filled with holiday music, great spirits and laughter, lots of snow outside and of course Christmas presents for all of out listeners out there in radio land.

Joining us in studio was Roseanne Longo, Longo spokesperson and Family Chair and daughter of one of the founders of the Longo Brothers Fruit Market. This well renowned grocery store www.longos.com established over 50 years ago, currently has 16 locations in Ontario and employs over 3000 people and is truly a family entrepreneurial success story.

Roseanne came in to share some easy and entertaining holiday tips with us to make sure we all have a stress free holiday season. She also generously donated $100 gift certificates or a turkey kit for all callers that got through to speak with Roseanne, Georgia or myself. Thank-you Roseanne from The Wine Ladies and the winners!

The first big holiday tip is the Longo Turkey Kit. Now believe me, this is one fantastic invention! This kit comes complete with all the trimmimgs and a pre cooked turkey. It serves from 4-6 people and can be purchased for just $69.99. All it takes is an hour to reheat and you are set to go! Talk about stress free! Roseanne gave one to me and my goodness it was easy to do and delicious. On top of that NO MESS! The turkey kits can be ordered through or 1-800-9-LONGOS up to Dec 22. The turkey kits are available 2 times a year – Christmas and Thanksgiving.

We had a caller ask us how to make the best stuffing for your turkey and if Rosanne had any tips. Rosanne smiled and laughed, “the secret to great stuffing is to have your Mom make it”! So she promised to send it for all of our listener’s and readers.

Roseanne further added that, “the real “secret” is in the seasoning”. Your own creativity and added touches with favourite ingredients are what will make it your own recipe to pass on from generation to generation. Some people prefer a traditional bread stuffing, some add fruit like cranberries, and in some cultures (I have aunts who do this…the Italian way) is to make stuffing with a blend of ground pork and beef and even mushrooms, creating a more meatier stuffing with less breadcrumbs.

Most traditional stuffings, or dressings, start with saut
