Satisfy Even the Pickiest Of The Bunch
My two young kids have a serious case of what I (fondly) like to call ‘selective eating’. As you can probably imagine—especially if you too have ‘selective eaters’ at home—I am constantly on the lookout for nutritious and delicious foods that my kids will not just eat, but actually love to eat. … [Read more...]
Everyone Has A Story (In A Bowl)
When I was growing up, my father would always tell me that everyone has a story to tell. We would walk down the street to where his office was and I would have to hang out every weekend as mom needed to sleep (or maybe it was because she needed a break from me, now that I think about it). When dad … [Read more...]
We Want To Know “What’s In The Bowl”?
Childhood milestones run the gamut. There are those that we want to remember by marking down in baby books (think first smile, first tooth, first step). There are those we’d rather forget, but will likely remember, (I’m thinking “first visit to the ER”, “first temper tantrum in a public place” and … [Read more...]

"Can we have French toast with bacon for brunch, please?" Oliver's eyes always gleam when he asks me for foods like this, and I'm obliging him, as a Last Request. He knows what kind of yummy it's going to be. And he knew after that special stop at the one grocery store that carries the gorgeous … [Read more...]
What’s in your Oatmeal?
Up until a few days ago, I truly resolved not to have any new years resolutions. I had reflected on last year's resolutions and felt that I had succeeded; I had become better at being a meaner and greener chef. You'll notice that I used the word better and not best.There's still room … [Read more...]
Smooth Like Buttah
We are a 'toast and cereal for breakfast' kind of family. It's easy, quick and I can lay in bed a few extra minutes while the kids sploosh a litre of milk all over the counter, missing their bowls of Mini-Wheats.But every now and again, I like to BRING IT and make the best breakfast ever: hot, fresh … [Read more...]

During the week we're all rushing around getting ourselves (and the kids) up and ready for the day whether it's school or early morning hockey practice. We try our best to give them a balanced breakfast whether they are hungry or not. … [Read more...]
