Use Your Good Stuff
View this post on Instagram
It’s no secret that I have a love affair with vintage items. The items I have collected and acquired over the years are not stashed away and out of sight, they are prominently displayed and in regular use. My fellow Professional Home Economist and friend, Mairlyn Smith, has coined this #UseYourGoodStuff and if you need some inspiration, look no further than her almost daily posts on Instagram. It’s no coincidence, I’m celebrating “use your good stuff” this month and Mairlyn’s newest cookbook, Peace Love and Fibre, is hitting shelves. To say I’m excited is an understatement. I’m a fan girl of Mairlyn and her cookbooks have enhanced my confidence and repertoire in the kitchen. So, next time you are setting the table, pause, open that cupboard and set out the good stuff – why are you hiding away your most favourite items?!

From my daily commute or for a camping road trip, audio books are a must have for me and my family. This summer while we are exploring Canada, my family will be listening to some of our favorite classic books like Harry Potter! The best audio books are the ones like Becoming by Michelle Obama. Michelle reads her book. It’s her voice. It’s fantastic.
What is your favourite audio book?

Rhubarb, rhubarb, rhubarb!
One of my favorite signs of spring is finding those beautiful pink stalks at my grocery store or farmers market. If you are lucky to grow it in your garden as I am, you know you will have ample to cook with and share.
If you need to purchase it from the store, fresh and frozen both work well inmost recipes. Try this delicious rhubarb twist on a classic sesame chicken. And then make a pie!!!! You wont be sorry!!!
Eat Well…Jenn, Ellen & Lynn
