What We’re Lovin’ for January

What Jenn’s Lovin

Warm cup of tea and Canadian honey

Warm up from the inside out with a cup of tea and honey.  I’m lovin’ tea blends from Cornelia Bean with a smidge of Canadian honey. Always check your honey label for 100% Canadian sourced.

When you visit Cornelia Bean you enter another world. The old creaky wooden floors and heavy door remind me of another time and the smell of tea and coffee takes over as you embark on your tea selection journey. They have so many to choose from that it’s hard to pick just one.  For me I often go back to my trusty favourites, Manitoba Rooibos, Chocolate Mint Rooibos, and fruit blends such as Sugar Plum or their holiday flavour Nutcracker.

Every warm beverage can use a touch of sweetness and Honey is so good you can eat it right off the spoon. What are you filling your mug with this January?

Baking and Biscuits

Biscuit | www.canolaeatwell.com

January days are oh so cold and dark, and my body craves warming, long simmer, hearty stews and soups.  What to serve with those delicious stews and soups but beautiful homemade biscuits of course!

I love this recipe for Cheddar Baking Powder Biscuits that I have shared below. Oil is not traditionally the fat of choice when making biscuits but rather shortening, lard or butter.   I much prefer to use canola oil because I already have it on hand, it is inexpensive (and Canadian grown), and my nutrition brain loves that it is lower in saturated fat than butter or lard. Do embrace January, make a batch of these biscuits, and share with others.  January has never tasted so good.

  1. go for a short walk! And if that doesn’t work, then have a nice cup of tea and put a blanket over your feet.

  2. I drink a ton of lemon ginger tea in the winter. Not only does it keep me warm but it helps keep me healthy.

  3. My wife makes some awesome high-fibre oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, made with Canola oil, and they are just what I need with a hot beverage to keep me warm and satisfied on cold January days!

  4. We’re keeping warm with lots of hot tea as well as a little homemade soup. we love making soup out of leftovers. They turn out so strange and delicious.

  5. What is keeping me warm is snuggles under a blanket with my 2 smiling granddaughters, ready books and drinking hot chocolate

  6. my big mug full of hot tea i have an assortment of them to pick from !great to warm my hands up after i’ve been outside !

  7. I like getting outside for a 30 to 40 minute walk everyday. That warms me up for quite a long time. I have two different down filled parkas–one for temps down to -15 deg. C. and another for the colder temps. So no matter what the temperature outside I am cozy. It is sometimes a challenge to walk after a big snow dump because some people don’t ever clean their front sidewalks. When that happens we will go to a local park and walk the trails which the parks staff plow within 24 hours of a snowfall.

  8. Loving the Cucumber/Lemon Muffin recipe from Canola Eat Well. Jan too cold to eat cucumbers..LOL but great in this very light muffin.
