One of our first bounties in the Spring are Sweet Peas! I love the bright green colour of them and the giant pods full of beautiful round goodness. I know they say the little ones are the sweetest but I always get a thrill when these giant big fat peas reveal themselves. To me the texture and flavour of these are the best!!

It’s March break here in Ontario and being a big ski family, for us that usually means a week at the cottage skiing! There really isn’t anything better than those Spring ski days. We wait all year for them. Warm, sunny days that make us feel closer to nature and happy to the core. We call them Blue Bird Days! Well, this year it’s warm alright, so warm that it’s raining and the snow has pretty well vanished. Which leaves us more excited for Easter! It’s early this year which could have meant a very wintery looking Spring holiday but luckily it looks like my favorite holiday will be as I imagined, full of colour and the hopeful anticipation of summer to come!

BG Chicken and shrimp 1

Lets talk polenta. Cornmeal, water, salt and a touch of oil for the basic recipe. You can add a variety of cheeses to it at that point, It can be left soft and runnier or thick in order to mold and cut. Either way I find people mostly either love it or hate it.
