Apple CakeThis recipe originated from the Budget Cutters Cookbook that appeared in The London Free Press in November 1982. It was a recipe from Mrs. Gordon H. Willert of Thedford. I always fall back on this recipe when I’m in a hurry. I particularly like it because it only uses one bowl to mix the batter and it produces a flavourful, dense, moist cake. This is a good recipe when apples are in season.
Pasta Salad with Carrot Top PestoPerfect for the time of year when bunches of fresh local carrots appear on market stands, inevitably accompanied by their beautiful bushy green tops.
Fire in the Kitchen Meatball DinnerPerfect at any time of year! Fire In The Kitchen spices are the secret to a truly next-level meatball. We used "3 Alarm" for a zesty kick. Or for that BBQ taste without any grilling, try them with "Smoke Eater".
Jill’s Egg SaladMemories of Jill's mom are the inspiration behind this classic sandwich recipe!
Blueberry Coffee CakeThe following blueberry coffee cake is a great recipe to use local blueberries. It’s not that blueberries are just so delicious and fresh and can be enjoyed with your breakfast or turned into a multitude of desserts — they also freeze well and their shelf life is much longer than many other berries.
Peach Thyme LoafWith an abundance of local peaches in store in August, this is the perfect time to try this loaf! A bit of thyme added to the recipe provides a unique and savoury flavour.
Potato and Cauliflower GratinGive your family holiday feasts a delicious twist with this classic potato gratin that adds sweet potato and cauliflower topped with breadcrumbs and cheese. Yum!
Cauliflower Mac and CheeseIt may not be the healthiest but nothing transports you back to being a kid like creamy mac and cheese. Plus, get your veggie fix by adding cauliflower.
Decadent Dark Chocolate TartMary MacLeod's Butterscotch Shortbread Crumbs makes the tart crust very buttery and Callebaut Dark Chocolate makes the filling smooth and rich.
Kale Pineapple Smoothie ~ Variation 1Start your day off on a healthy note with an energy boosting green smoothie. Many modifications can be made to this recipe depending what you have on hand.
Chocolate Date Energy BallsSuper easy and no-bake. Bite sized and full of wholesome ingredients, these energy balls are the perfect treat!
Caesar Potato SaladA new take on an old classic. This creamy potato salad is a great addition to any summer barbecue.
Rhubarb Coffee CakeSpring treats. Enjoy ribbons of juicy pink rhubarb topped with a sweet streusel. This cake is perfect for spring brunch, snack time or dessert.
Maple Walnut PieTap into your sweet tooth with a maple dessert. Spring in Canada means lots of maple syrup is flowing and this is just one way to use it in an indulgent dessert.
Lemon and Shrimp PastaImpress guests with this herb filled pasta salad. Add some black olives in step 1 to change it up!
Carrot Ginger SoupAnother great recipe from Jill's new Soups Stews & Breads Cookbook. This recipe takes advantage of the natural sweetness of carrots, made even sweeter by roasting!
Maple Baked BeansA Canadian classic! Navy beans, double smoked bacon, maple syrup and molasses...it's no surprise this dish is always a hit.
Super Summer BurgersThrow some burgers on the grill and enjoy with friends. Keep the kitchen cool by taking the cooking outside this summer. Here is a simple burger recipe that is sure to please.
Asparagus Goat Cheese CrostiniA delicious twist on a traditional bruschetta! Toast topped with fresh asparagus and goat cheese makes for a rustic appetizer.
