Cookout: Fish en Papillote

cookout1Last weekend my daughter and a friend did some balcony camping. For dinner that night we made fish cooked in foil packages outside. Cooking fish in foil with seasonal vegetables is a very smart and tasty way to cook fish. Less mess and fish cooked in the juices from the vegetables always end up perfect to eat.

Light Picnic dinner: Pita Tuna melt

tunapitafront

In Toronto I’m lucky to live only a 15 minute walk to the beach. So now that the weather has been nice, after school we often jump on our bikes and ride to the beach. Being by the beach is an amusement for old and new.  Today they had fun throwing rocks in the water and making land art.

Summer is almost here. I’m looking forward to lazy days on the beach and bike rides and hikes with the family. As we are getting ready for the summer I’m making sure I am always ready to have a spontaneous picnic outdoors. Be ready by making sure you have the essentials at hand.

Fairy Cupcakes : Sugared flowers

fairycupcakefrontOur school has a bake sale tomorrow, and I’m making some fairy cupcakes for the sale. Hopefully they will be success for both fairies and parents. I’m using edible flowers as décor on lemon cupcakes. In this recipe I’m using pansies but nasturtiums and violets will also work.

Pick dandelions: Make Dandelion syrup

Dandelions have many secrets. Beyond their reputation as a weed they can be turned into toys for kids and they can be eaten. I have to admit that playing with them and not eating them is how I best know dandelions.
