Free e-book - 46 recipes for easy, everyday food

The key to eating well most of the time?

Resolve and a great stash of recipes for easy everyday food. 

At least that’s my take on it.

I don’t have a perfect track record, mind you, but most days I can get good food on the table. Let’s just say I live by the 80/20 rule when it comes to feeding my family.

When people ask me about supper hour in our house, this is what I tell them…

Eating well when you’re busy can seem like the impossible but it’s more a matter of resolve and a great stash of recipes than it is time and effort…Some if the tastiest recipes have barely a handful of ingredients and are quick to whip up, even of spending time in the kitchen isn’t really your thing.

Which brings me to our newest “great stash of recipes”…

Wholesome snacks for kids – a free e-book

Wholesome Snacks, a free e-book featuring 16 recipes for healthy homemade snack food

Will I spend the rest of my life craving new pencils and pens at the end of August?

It’s warm and sunny. We’re still mowing the lawn. My tomatoes have yet to ripen. It is very much summer. But, I keep thinking about September. I’d say this preoccupation was a little cruel, if it weren’t for the fact that I get a nostalgic sort of thrill each time I think of September.

I can’t be the only one who has this kind of seasonal anticipation. Am I?

Yes, we have kids in school but even before our kids came along we got into back-to-school mode each year towards the end of summer (although we had left school behind a decade earlier.) At the same time, the back-to-school flyers drive me crazy. They remind me of the work it takes to get back into the swing of things. I prefer to focus on the pleasure of new beginnings. Sure there is a little bit of dread (we’ll be busy with kids’ activities) but the newness of it all is exciting.

And there are ways to simplify the routine, which brings me to our new e-book full of healthy snack recipes.

BBQ - small

You might be surprised to discover just how well molasses suits summer.

Something about its tangy sweetness seems to fit right into the rhythm of relaxed eating and backyard meals.

I have great summer memories of picnics on the beach and potlucks on the deck, enjoying the company of family and friends. Braided into these memories are the favourite summer foods often shared at these events, like my Uncle George’s beer barbeque sauce and my mom’s cheery potato salad.
