Make a squash soup

I’m sure a lot of you have already been out picking pumpkins for Halloween. Pumpkins have a lot of cousins that are great to eat and not just for decoration. Each fall I try different recipes to try with things that are connected to the season and how to cook them. My favorite is acorn and spaghetti squash. You can use Spaghetti squash as a substitute for noodles. One thing is for sure, many of the winter squashes taste so good in soups.

Halloween ideas

By Debra Scott
All Hallows Eve (Halloween) is quickly approaching and there is much to do to get ready. There is so much to do in the next two months: outdoor field trips, crafts that use your creative juices and party planning to name a few. When I was a kid, the build up to Halloween was half the fun. With today’s pre-made costumes and everyone’s busy days it takes a little more planning ahead but if we start now with some ways to build up to Halloween, we can build some great memories.

Happy Fall ! Fall activity guide

It is that time again, shorter days and less sunlight.  For me, fall is Canada’s number one season.  If you ever think about visiting Toronto make sure you visit in the fall.  Fall in Toronto is warm days and gorgeous nights with beautiful fall foliage and harvest bounty for the farmers markets.

Miss American pie


By Kari Svenneby

The season for apples is here. I hope you get the family out and visit an apple orchard this fall to pick some apples. However, if time or location does not allow you to pick them yourselves, make sure to buy locally grown apples where you live.

One of my favorite desserts here in North America is pie. I have started to understand that a lot of families have their secrets and a very specific preference on how an apple pie should taste and how the crust should be.

But don’t let the fear of not making the perfect pie stop you from making one. I hope that you make your own pie with the family so you can start making fond childhood memories with your kids

Back to school: Go play

Getting back to school is an exciting time for both parents and kids. Last year report by National Wildlife Federation, “Back to School: Back Outside,” key finding was that kids who spend time outdoors both at school and home, become higher-performance learners and score higher on standardized tests. For more on their key findings, check out National Wildlife Federation’s Back to School: Back Outside.
