Picnic Pasta Salad

There's no doubt that pasta salad is a summer staple. This recipe uses fresh herbs blended with a creamy base that really carries the dressing all the way to flavour town. Throw in super ripe cherry tomatoes to give the salad a juicy sweetness and beautiful pop of colour. 

Layered Granola Berry Parfait

Raise your hand if you want an easy, delicious breakfast. Thick Greek yogurt, fresh berries and your fave granola. This parfait is your new go-to. 

 

Deep-Fried Easter Creme Eggs

Ever had a deep fried Mars bar? Deep fried Easter Creme Eggs are a fun indulgence — a tasty, gooey once-a-year treat! The batter is light and fluffy, perfect to counteract the sweetness of the treat inside. 

 

Blueberry Granola Bars

Blueberries are loaded with antioxidants and are believed to benefit your brain—a perfect ingredient for homemade granola bars for a quick breakfast on the go.

Homemade Ginger Pork Potstickers

One of the great things about potstickers is their versatility—you can really make the filling out of anything. Kids have fun helping out—set out a bowl of filling, a dish of water and a pile of wonton wrappers, and they'll keep busy helping you get dinner on the table.

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.

#yucktoyum: Roasted Butternut Squash Fries

Try serving plain ol' steamed squash to your kidlets and you're potentially setting yourself up for blank stares and wrinkled noses. But crispy roasted squash fries might just get them to try something new.

Banana-Oat Teething Biscuits

Ripe bananas that have been frozen tend to be moister than mashed bananas straight from the fruit bowl; add a little extra water or oil if necessary. Oat flour, which is low in gluten, produces a soft, almost chalky cookie.
