Weekend Links

Happy May!

Here in Canada, we’re far enough into spring to start planning our gardens. On the Simple Bites urban homestead we’re sprouting seeds, digging up earth and dreaming about shortening our food chain.

Everything about growing my own food makes me happy and this year, it makes more sense than ever. I’m grocery shopping infrequently which means fresh herbs and greens are the ingredients I run out of first.

Anyway, gardening aside, here’s a list for reading – and listening – that I enjoyed this week.

How to Quarantine By Mistake || My feature on The Food Podcast with Lindsay Cameron Wilson!

This podcast features my lovely parents and I, along with host extraordinaire, Lindsay. It tells the story of my childhood in the Yukon and how it has shaped who I am today.

Lindsay took such good care of my somewhat vulnerable history and expertly wove it together with very relevant ‘quaran-times’ we find ourselves in now.

Find it wherever you listen to podcasts and also on The Food Podcast.

Kelly’s Nova Scotia Oatcakes ~ Kelly Neil || This isn’t just a beautiful heirloom recipe, but a very practical post, too, with gluten-free and vegan options.

This heartwarming donair recipe is a taste of the Maritimes || The Star || A beautiful tribute from Jennifer Crawford.

Garlicky Beet Dip with Walnuts :: Alison Roman via Chatelaine || I made a batch of this vibrant dip this week. It was great to have on hand for healthy snacking. I swirl mine with Greek yogurt and eat it with everything from crackers to crudité.

If you’re trying to decide what food to grow yourself, here are 8 places to start || Washington Post || Gardening inspiration for beginners!

The “No Book” Book Club Edition :: Shipshape Eatworthy || From popular cookbook reviewer Kris comes a round-up of reliable recipes from her favourite websites and food writers. If Kris says these recipes are worth your time and food dollars, then you better believe they are just that!

Have a great weekend, friends.
