Have a picnic with ham and cheese horns (crescent rolls)

Last Sunday I visited a Norwegian friend in the Toronto area and we went for a hike and sledding trip. On the trip she served us tasty horns filled with ham and cheese. So yummy! Next time we go for an outdoor adventure we are going make these treats before we hit the trail. These horns are very fun and easy to make with your kids.

10 ways to play with ice

Last week we had a few cold days in Toronto, but with little snow. So what do you do when there are freezing conditions but no snow? We play with ice and create art. This is not just for kids, but also for everyone who is a child at heart. This past week has also been fun with all the interaction on Instagram and Facebook, it is great to hear how our readers play with ice and see how their posts can inspirer others to play more with ice.

Valentine Picnic ideas

Dress the youngster s warmly; grab the summer picnic blanket, your favorite Valentine picnic treats and head out to have an afternoon of winter fun. It is no snow at Toronto at the moment so I think it safe to say that we will be skating for our outdoor valentine picnic this year in our community ice rink close to our house if the winter will stay in Toronto.

Semlor and Fastelavns boller and Mardi Gras

Different foods are served all over the world, but this pre-lent treat have something in common as they are both very rich with cream and sweet buns like king cake in New Orleans with icing and different colors. Funny enough my husband is going to New Orleans and I’m going to ask him to bring some King cake home so I can taste how it taste compares to semlor and fastelavnbun.
