Halloween Outdoor guide

As an immigrant to Canada from the old world, I was reluctant in the beginning to embrace the Halloween tradition. I thought it was only a commercial event meant to sell costumes and candy. That was before I began to understand the true meaning of Halloween.

Pumpkin pie


By Kari Svenneby

Try this delicious pie for Thanksgiving. Why buy a pie when you can make a much better one yourself. This year make your pie with homemade puree. It is a little more work, but it taste much better and the added bonus is that it is great lesson for your children. Pumpkins are not only used for Jack Lanterns but also for baking. If you have the chance you can even head out to a pumpkin patch and pick pumpkins for the front porch and the pie.

Happy fall, Good-bye Summer! : Fall cooking

fallcookingfrontEven though I’m sad to see summer go away, I’m looking forward to fall. I love autumn in Toronto with its mild temperatures and colorful leaves. But most of all, I love the bounty of harvest Ontario offers for me as an immigrant to the new world.

The gourds, squash, and pumpkins fascinate me. They look funny and they taste so good. With so many local ingredients available, I try out new recipes every year and dust off my old favorites.
