Condiments,  dips  and  chutneys  are   like  the  supporting  actors  or  actresses.  On  their  own  they  are   plain,  but  they  prop   up the  main  actors  and  together  elevate  them  to  a  new  level  or  in  this  case  the  dish.   Sweet,  hot,  or  nutty,   the  choices  are  many.   Pair  it  with

    It’s  been  snowing  steady  for  the  last  couple  of  days.  The  Spruce  branches  bent  under  the  weight  of  fresh  snow,  the  snow  covering  the  road  signs,  drive  ways  and  roof  shingles.  It  doesn’t  matter  if  its  spring  on  calendar  soon,  this  is  the  Prairies.  We  don’t  part  with  the  parkas,  boots  or  shovels

  It  popped.  It  really  did. Canning,  preserving,  or  making  jams  is  something  I  stayed  away  from,  for  the  longest  time.  I  always  thought  it  was  a  very  unforgiving  procedure.  The  faliure  would  manifest  not  right  away  but  much  later,  the  day  when  you  open  the  jar  to  taste  the  jam. This  year  my  sour

  The  weather  outside  is  definitely  not  the  same  as  it  was  couple  weeks  ago.  The  leaves  are  changing  colour.  There  is  a  chill  in the  air.  We  just  finished  harvesting  the  vegetables  from  our  our  garden.  Beets,  lettuce,  carrots  are  exchanging  hands  in  the  office.  Reminiscing  the  summer  is  our  favourite   past  time
