The longer the shelf life. The shorter your life. Very true. Cook from scratch. Know what's in your food. Cook and eat real food.
A friend of mine brought me back from New Orleans the original Beignet Mix. Nothing goes better with cafe' au lait than Café Du Monde Beignets. Beignets are puffy square French doughnuts that are traditionally covered in powdered sugar. I mixed up 2 cups of flour with 7fl.oz. of water and the girls and I rolled and cut beautiful squares and into the fryer they went. We rarely fry anything anymore and thought to keep this traditional. So worth it. They're light, fluffy, puffy and airy (like biting into a cloud) and taste MMM good. #FrenchPasteries #Beignet #CafeDuMonde #Yummy #Fun #CookingInTheKitchen #KidsCook
Great time at the #CDNCheese Canadian Cheese Awards @cheesefestival at @stlawrencemarket with sponsors @loblawson @provigoqc and @dairyfarmersofcanada Congratulations to George and his team for the 3rd edition of Le Concours des fromages fins Canadiens to all the cheese farmers and winners! Crossing our expansive country from PEI, Nova Scotia, Quebec, Manitoba, Alberta and BC. Over 350 Cheese entered and over 2 days of taste testing with cheese testers at the @universityofguelph_
And 19 categories later... We got to sample cheese on top of cheese and met some really cool people. There was a lot to say and more importantly a lot of #CheesePlease so yummy. 😋 As a country we have a lot to be proud off and the wide variety and selection of #Canadian cheese now available to the consumer is amazing. Great quality, great taste. Many from my very hood of Vaughan, Ontario #YorkRegion as well as #Quebec Like the #1608Cheese (Le 1608) was launched in 2008 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Laiterie Charlevoix. The name is a reference to the few hundred head of cattle imported from France between 1608 and 1670 that were the ancestors of the Canadienne breed. Absolutely fascinating. Always something to learn with food and our history. #CanadianCheese #Cheese #CheeseAwards #Canada #Ontario #Quebec #PEI #NovaScotia #Manitoba #Alberta #BritishColombia

Early morning cooking is the best kind. Hot, homemade, delicious, nutritious lunches going out the door with my kids. Simple, easy and quick this spelt pasta has the energy and veggies they need to tackle their day. I load it up into stainless steel thermoses and they're off! #HotLunches #Cook #RealFood #KidsLunches #Health #Healthy #HealthyEating #Kids #EatRight #OnTheGoLunches
Since the kids can't take peanut butter to school, I made these healthy morning bites with sliced apples and cut up dates for extra fiber to get the intestinal track moving and groovin' These all help cut the sugar attacks after a long weekend of bad sugars. Also, you can make these with the No Nut Butter and send to school as a healthy, filling snack. #Yummy #NomNom #Healthy #Health #KidsHealth #Breakfast #Snacks #GoodSugars #Kids #RealFood #SchoolSnacks #NoNutButter #Simple #Easy #Quick #Fiber

What me and the kids do on a blustery, icy, snowy, windy, cold day in Ontario. Make waffles with flax and cinnamon of course!! #WaffleMaking #WinterInCanada #IndoorActivities #Yum #Eat #WinnieThePooh #Tigger
A lot of prep work for this protein packed Buddha Bowl but when you have a #PetitsChef helping it goes by quickly and sooo worth it!! Loaded with good amino fatty acids and lean plant based protein. We have it all chocked up with Quinoa, marinated Tofu (Tofu is an excellent source of calcium and a very good source of manganese, copper, selenium, protein and phosphorus. In addition, tofu is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, iron, magnesium, zinc and vitamin B1). Plus, spiced, cooked, chickpeas, oven roasted onions and butternut squash, shaved carrot and zucchini, cubed cucumbers. 
It was happily devoured, filling and definitely a make again.
