I'm probably getting ahead of myself. The leaves haven't even started to change colour yet, at least not downtown where I live. And there's really no chill in the air either, just the humidity's gone, which I love. So from my perspective, the weather couldn't be better. But it is almost the end of September and I've always dreaded Fall.

It must be fall, bringing with it Thanksgiving. This October, however, more than 16,000 families in Ontario will have no other choice but to visit a food bank for the first time in their entire lives. And while the idea of turkey dinner with all the trimmings certainly sounds delicious, for over 375,000 adults and children, it is simply not the reality of the season.

November 22, 1963. A day everyone remembers as the day John F. Kennedy was assassinated. The whole world mourned America's "loss of innocence". For me, it became a pivotal day. A day that changed my life - forever. I experienced my own personal loss of innocence. A loss that would inform the rest of my life.

I love summer. Love, love, love it. It is the most wonderful time of the year. It is what we northerners wait for, what we hope for and what we crave through those dark and dreary winter months.

As the season rapidly changes, we have to say farewell to both warm days and the beloved seasonal fruits that go along with them. Goodbye, juicy watermelon. So long, luscious strawberries. But chin up fruit lovers, there's a new star in town! Pears! The deliciously fresh and lightly sweet quality of pears can be enjoyed in countless recipes and served in the comfort of your own home this fall season.
There is some real chill in the morning air all of a sudden, and the new school year is well underway. Now that it's back-to-school time here's a great crispy rice treat, sans all the yucky gelatin and refined sugars included in traditional recipes (and it's nut free, so good for lunch boxes!)

Instead, I say we celebrate the change of seasons, look forward to it and honour the passing of summer for another year. And how better to pay your respects that lounging in the late afternoon sun with a liquored up snow cone and a barbecue?
For many, fall is a season to rake leaves, carve pumpkins and prepare for the winter ahead. But living in Canada, we are lucky to have four seasons that allow us to change our gardens depending on the...
I feel clever because I took something that an ordinary person would throw away, or eat and resent because the yellow/peach coloured apples were mealy. But as applesauce, those pathetic specimens are going to be so good that I might even lick the bowl, and because it's just me here, nobody will know the difference.
He says... I don't know about you, but it seems that the last time I checked my watch it was half-past May, and I was still grumbling about the long, cold winter. We had just had a conversation with...
