How to Cook Roasted Butternut Squash Ravioli

Today is Day 4 of our One Month Grocery Shopping Strike.

This squash recipe is a little involved, but well worth the work – it is absolutely amazing, healthy & even vegetarian…Probably my family’s favorite meal of...

Web Chef Review: Ontario Turnips at Harvest Barn Country Markets

Have a look at this gorgeous, huge, Ontario Turnip from Harvest Barn Country Markets that I picked up from their market in Niagara-on-the-Lake. You can tell how very fresh it is because the coating is unmarred, the stem area is bright yellow, as well as the turnip tip, and the smell is sweet and appealing. My family and I just can’t imagine the Holidays without serving mashed turnip. Beautiful turkey dinners just don’t...

How to Roast Squash Seeds

Tonight I’m making roasted butternut squash ravioli with tomato sauce. So, it stands to reason that I’m using a fresh, whole butternut squash for this project or for something like my Butternut Squash & Sweet Potato Soup. I peeled it and cut it into chunks after halving it and scooping out the seeds and “innards”. There is no need to throw out those seeds! They are healthy, nutritious and delicious too, if...

One Month Grocery Shopping Strike: Day 4

This is Day Four of our One Month Grocery Shopping Strike! I had Muay Thai training this morning, and never eat breakfast before I go…it would be BAD if I did!!!

Firstly, I used buttermilk in the fridge we already had. * Tip: Don’t be afraid to use buttermilk. It only sounds like...
