For the kids, portability and nutrition are always key factors so I really think they will love this week's meal challenge, a quick little pita pocket lunch. I was able to sneak in some ricotta cheese, which is creamy and sweet but pretty neutral in flavour.

This time of year is always bittersweet -- we hate saying goodbye to the sunshine, but we love saying hello to warm soups, cuddles by the fireplace and crunchy leaves under our feet. Fear not. As the weather changes, so should our routines. Staying in tune with the seasons is key to being happy and healthy all year round.

My wife and our 18-month old Luke took on a Main Ingredients cooking challenge this summer and found it really fun and fulfilling, literally. So when our family was presented with this newest cook-off task, we were raring to go.

It was both very entertaining and insightful to see how families across the country dealt with the Main Ingredients Challenge. It's one thing to read a recipe and say "Oh, I think this might be a good recipe for dinner one night," but it's something totally different to try use a set of pre-determined ingredients and follow a plan knowing that your family may completely refuse your offerings.

What To Do With 200 Pounds of Fruit

Earlier this month my boyfriend and I were visiting Kelowna for a friend's wedding. We had driven down in my little Kia hatchback instead of flying because I had a masterful plan of bringing home beautiful BC fruit to make into jam. The key word here is 'some'. Some canning. As it turns out, almost 200 pounds of fruit fits in there.

I was shocked at how easy it was to prepare these dishes from scratch. All of the ingredients were easy to find at the grocery store. It was fun to work with my wife in the kitchen and reach a culinary compromise of healthiness and tastiness.

As we head into the last of our challenges, for these 12 ingredients, no doubt you've already been inspired with some new ways to cook with all of them. For the last challenge, we have to dig deep and use every single one of the ingredients to prepare a smorgasbord (why is that word so funny?) of recipes still abiding by the same principles of nutrition and balance. Let's do this!

Now that you've had a chance to think about my 12 ingredients, I want to introduce this week's challenge. Using the 12 ingredients plus any common things we may have in our pantry or fridge (for example: eggs, olive oil and spices), we have to make a 20-minute dinner.

Momofuku's "Crack Pie" Comes to Canada | Posted 09.29.2013 | Canada Travel

Crack has made its way from Brooklyn to Canada over the years. Christina Tosi and the team at Momofuku are making sure an addictive namesake crosses the border, too -- and no authority is giving them a hard time. The Crack Pie, which is a sugar high, has become one of New York's most celebrated dessert items. It is among the habit-forming treats available at the newly opened Momofuku Milk Bar in Toronto.

Don't Be Scared of Avocados -- It's Good Fat!

Avocados are a fruit not a vegetable. Also known as the Alligator Pear, they are delicious, buttery tasting and contain numerous health benefits. But why do people shy away from them? The answer lies in the fact that one avocado has 325 calories and 30 gm of fat!

The July long weekend is always busy at my house because it's when we get the kids ready for camp. This year they'll be away for six weeks without any parents, homework, city pollution, cell phones, TVs or computers. They are off the grid at camp. I love knowing this.

Following my posts on Wheat Beers, Fruit Beers and Sour Beers, today we are going to explore Lawnmower Beers. There is no denying, more people probably reach for a light lager after cutting the grass or weeding the garden, than anything else.

This is my variation of a Western Omelette that makes a great sandwich. I used left over ham from Easter dinner which made it very tasty. Put your favourite condiment on your toast and you have one hearty and filling sandwich. I like mustard on mine but you can add what ever you like.

Today we are going to cover a type of beer that is probably unfamiliar to many folks, sour ales, and specifically Belgian-style Saisons and German-style Berliner Weisse. For many, the thought of a beer being sour at all is a strange one.

Because of this variety of styles, even if you've had one fruit beer you didn't particularly like, it's never a bad idea to try one that is new to you. For many people who "don't like beer", a fruit beer is often an option that they actually enjoy.

I discovered my "fountain of youth" in juicing. With juice bars popping up all over the place it might be tempting to think that juicing is a new trend. But it's really just the latest manifestation of a centuries-old practice. Here's how to make a fruity green smoothie.

Summer Beer Guide: Wheat Beer

One of the most obvious "summer" styles are wheat beers. These beers are generally bright, slightly tart or sour, quite refreshing, and generally weigh-in at 5 per cent or less. I've also got a BBQ recipe for Orange Glazed Pork Chops that includes a wheat beer.

Julie from Mennonite Girls Can Cook follows a the gluten-free diet. This is my husband's favourite square with an explosion of flavour that makes people ask, "What's in here?" This square is sweet but not too sweet with a light crumb base and optional icing.
