Ask Aimee

*Thank you for all your great questions, both via email and here in the comments. The opportunity for questioning is now over. Look for my answers very soon!*

Let’s have a bit of fun, shall we? Since I’m probably never going to be a guest on a late night talk show, and content here on the blog revolves exclusively around food, I’m going to give you an opportunity to ask me about anything. Sure, you can stick to kitchen-related questions, but feel free to expand if you like.

Ask me about blogging, the family, my background, Montreal, – whatever! Just ask. Do you want to know my favorite summer shoe of choice? Curious to know if I really grew up without electricity or telephone? Ever wonder how I got started blogging? My ideal vacation spot? What’s always in my fridge?

Ask away!

I’ve opened up about mothering, anniversaries, and babies. I’ve pulled back the curtain on my annual cookie swaps and sugaring off events. What else would you love to hear about that’s outside the recipe box (both literally and figuratively!) Let me know in an email.

Of course, if you’d just like to know a quick substitution for buttermilk or how to grill a perfect steak, you can ask that too.

Email me your questions and I’ll try to answer as many as I can in an upcoming post.

  1. Do you watch cooking shows on TV, and who is your favorite celebrity chef?
    And why?

  2. Do the Montreal summers make up for the winters?

    Any favorite cookbooks or recipe sites (excluding this one?)

  3. How do you deal with picky eaters (kids)? What does sleep look like with your children?

  4. Are your kids growing up speaking two languages? What’s your favorite “junk” food? =)

  5. Even though you are an accomplished chef, you’re a busy mom and writer too-what do you keep stocked in your freezer/pantry for those nights that making dinner just seems impossible?

  6. Gayle Rowley says

    What recipe do you use for bannocks when you are camping? Bannocks are not something Americans are used to cooking. I hear they are easy and delicious and you might even start a new food/camping revolution with your recipe!

  7. Hi Aimee!
    What is the best/easiet thing about blogging and what is the hardest/most difficult?

  8. Important question: how did you get such an adorable family? 😉

  9. Are you American and did you immigrate to Montreal? If so, can you talk a bit about immigration to Canada?
    Can you talk about groceries and food markets, like farmer’s markets, that exist in Canada. Do you feel that Canada has as big of a problem with junk food, fast food, and soda as American does?

    Also, what kind of maternity time and care does Canada offer?
    Thank you!
