Fresh flowers

While spending much more time at home, I want my space to look beautiful.  Over the garden season, I have regularly cut my flowers from the garden and brought them into my house. I always bring them inside to enjoy.

I also love purchasing flowers from the farmer’s market but with that season done, now I purchase cut flowers from a store to enjoy.  They bring a sense of fun and whimsy to my house and it’s always fun to rearrange them to fit your space.  I don’t need a reason to purchase flowers except only to enjoy them and I hope you buy some for yourself soon too.

Easy to make, nutritious and eat on the go snacks

October is finally here! A busy month filled with fun activities including Thanksgiving, Halloween, fall fairs and festivals.  With busy schedules it can be difficult to plan regular snacks and meals.  I love quick and easy snacks for busy days. Did you know that 80% of Canadians say they have at least 1 snack per day? Snacks can be an excellent way to add to a healthy diet.

Strong Female Leads

I’m really enjoying learning from strong female leads. Whether it’s a confident female heroine in a novel, women launching a podcast (Yay Jasmine and Michelle) or a bold female led TEDx Talk, I’m in, I want to learn and I want to hear their perspective.

I watched Professor Maja’s TEDx right after it was launched and it has stuck with me ever since. Let’s all start building up our confidence and release the need to start and end conversations with unnecessary apologies. If you are on Instagram, give Prof Maja a follow, she’s a blast!

  1. We use the Purity Flour cookbook all the time. It’s falling apart but the older version is what we like. Thank you.

  2. I have a few of Jean Paré’s Company’s Coming cookbooks and use them all the time I think my fav is Preserves

  3. One of my favourites is Butter by Rosie Dayk. I love cookbooks and have so many. I will be reading and making a list from everyone’s comments. Thanks.

  4. Company’s Coming series – lots of comfort food, older traditional, and updated favourite recipes.

  5. I got a bunch but I use Fat, Back and Molasses the most for my baking recipes and other Newfoundland dishes.

  6. Right now my favorite Canadian cookbook is At Home With Lynn Crawford. I have been cooking up a storm of her fabulous recipes.

  7. I’m loving Canadian Canola oil! Friends recently received the Countess of Carnarvon’s Christmas at Highclere book which suggests using their rapeseed oil in several recipes. I’m sure our Canola is much better.

    1. okay, her book isn’t Canadian, so an old time-y favourite is Food That Really Schmecks by the late Edna Staebler

  8. My favorite Canadian cookbook is The Best of Stoveline: A Collection of Norma Bidwell Stoveline Recipes.

  9. I don’t think that I have any Canadian cookbooks, but I just searched and saw an Anne of green Gables one that looks really neat!

  10. I’m not really a cookbook person I usually just get my recipes from friends or the internet.

  11. I absolutely love this book, it’s more of a baking book but it has an amazing plethora of photographic images that show step by step the recipes. It’s called What to Bake & How to Bake It by Jane Hornby.
