Canada Day is Coming… Are You Ready?

As I race to get things ready to attend a convention next week, things are getting hectic around here! We have three major blog mentions this week, the first of which was on Fresh Juice. They featured my Canada Day watermelon carving not only on their front page, but the #1 spot of the featured section! Woo! Fresh Juice is the new sister publication of Canadian Living… the magazine I was raised on and totally adore!

I’ll link to the other two blog entries as they are posted, but I’m feeling inspired by my debut appearance at Fresh Juice – let’s do a round up of Canadian recipes, in preparation for the upcoming holiday. I’ve already Canadian-ed up the front page of my blog, but only so many recipes can fit. Let me do better justice to that now. Not only are there some fabulous recipes here, it frees me up to pack! Win-Win!

Enjoy!

Update: Our Blueberry Liqueur recipe was featured on The Huffington Post this morning.

With 2017 being Canada’s 150th birthday, it’s about time I wrote the Canadian cookbook I’ve been planning for YEARS.

“More than Poutine” will be a Canadian cookbook like no other – written by a Canadian living away, it includes both traditional homecooking recipes, as well as homemade versions of many of the snacks, sauces, convenience foods, and other food items that are hard to come by outside of Canada!

High quality gluten-free versions of most recipes will be included.

The Kickstarter for “More Than Poutine is live, here. Please consider backing, and sharing the campaign with your friends!
