One Bowl Banana Bread

This is a go-to recipe for any parent of a toddler. It comes together in minutes using one bowl. Young kids love the job of mashing the bananas with a potato masher.

Maple Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Winter squash makes a fantastic soup. Try swapping acorn, Hubbard, or even pumpkin for the butternut. Maple syrup and apple bring out its sweetness, and using curry powder or sage will change its flavour profile depending on your mood.

Chocolate Pudding

Take it old school with this cornstarch chocolate pudding. Most of the ingredients are already in your pantry, so you can satisfy your chocolate craving whenever it strikes.

Roasted Winter Vegetables with Couscous and Goat Cheese

Hardy winter veggies are perfect for roasting—the intense heat of the oven caramelizes their natural sugars, making them irresistibly delicious.

Breakfast Pops

Fruit, yogurt and grains make a balanced breakfast; why not freeze them on a stick for cool breakfast pops on the go.

Spiced Apple Cider with Candied Bacon

Candied bacon adds some heft to snack time; we decided to serve it alongside warm spiced cider, a perfect end to a sunny afternoon in the snow.

 

Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip And Pretzel Bars

These bars are the best of all worlds—soft and chewy, with pockets of chocolate and crunchy, salty pretzels on top. Could there be a tastier after-school snack than a warm pan of these, straight from the oven?

Sticky Toffee Banana Sundae

A banana sundae is the best dessert. Crumbled shortbread cookies and sticky toffee. Yep, we're here for it. 

Spaghetti Carbonara with Bacon and Peas

When you’re in need of a quick meal, a creamy carbonara comes together in just a little more time than it takes the pasta to cook—and chances are you already have the ingredients in your kitchen.

Basic Parmesan Risotto

If your kids are fans of mac and cheese, they’ll find this creamy, starchy, cheesy risotto has the same characteristics and a similar flavour. The classic Italian dish isn’t as complicated to make as it sounds.
