Cooking from Your Harvest What a beautiful time of year fall is when you get to see the fruits of your spring and summer labour! Those plants are growing, and you are seeing those vegetables ripening and being prepared to pick. All that is left now is
Kids Quick Cook: Self-Sauced Chocolate Pudding Cake
Most children get enticed into food preparation through eating tasty snacks and desserts. In our home, learning how to bake and cook meals is mandatory learning for both my boys, but I have one son who is much more keen to create in the kitchen. This is one he (and sometimes his brother) quickly whips up without any help from me. I have been making variations of this recipe for years because it is quick, easy to change up, and is a wonderful warm dessert.
The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie
What child doesn’t love a warm, chewy chocolate chip cookie? To be honest, as a parent I love these too! I love their taste, but I also love that in 20 minutes or less I can have something whipped up that my kids and their friends are going to love and enjoy. I think coming in from outside to bite into a warm chocolate chip cookie is a childhood rite of passage!
Become a Canadian Apple Expert
Many Canadians have not spent too much time thinking about where their food comes from, other than that it comes from Loblaws or Sobeys or Walmart. One thing the pandemic and recent food shortages have done is make us more aware of our supply chain. Where do we get our most basic food needs from? Also, where can we get our own food, including a good Canadian apple, if the grocery store is all out?
Recipes Kids Can Cook
Some kids gravitate towards helping in the kitchen more than others, but it is a life skill that benefits all. Those kids who enjoy cooking may experiment with flavours, changing recipes, making up dishes, etc., but any child can learn to follow a recipe and directions!
The Perfect, Not-Too-Sweet Christmas Cookie
Christmas cookies are such a fun tradition! Especially ones you can cut out with a cookie cutter and cover in fun icing! This recipe is easy to make and isn’t so sweet you’ll get an instant stomachache!
Newfoundland Blueberry Duff Recipe
Even though Canada is one country, different provinces, and even different regions within each province, have their own special dishes they enjoy. There are so many interesting and delicious dishes we don’t have an opportunity to experience unless we travel to, or know someone from, different regions.
Back-To-School Breakfast Recipes
Starting a new year of school can feel exciting! Even as a homeschooler, it is still nice to find a way to signify and celebrate that first day back to school.

While each family will have their own breakfast that feels special and celebratory to them, here are a few favourite recipes to try!
