Weekend Reading

It is safe to say summer has arrived here in Canada, at least I think so; we can always get unwelcome surprises. For the time being, though, it’s warm-but-not-to-hot, sunny, and perfectly suitable for sitting on the back porch spooning strawberry sundaes.

Around here, summer is about connecting. With family, with friends, both old and new. There’s something about entertaining outdoors that encourages casual eating, and makes the prospect of drop-in dinner guests so much more relaxing.

Although I can’t cook everyone of you an informal lunch, I’d still love to connect this summer — and beyond. Really quickly I’m going to highlight several of the ways we can do that and then I’ll share my link love.


On our Simple Bites Facebook page, we swap recipes, trade dinner ideas and connect over our love of ingredients. It’s fun, it’s chatty; I’ll see you there.


At my readers request, Simple Bites now has a Flickr group, and it’s pretty cool. Now I can see what you’re cooking for a change. Stop in and share photos of your farmer’s market finds, the kids in the kitchen, or Sunday brunch.


This is raw, up-to-the-minute updates and tips from my kitchen. My laptop sits opposite my main workstation and channels what’s happening in the heart of my home to my followers. It’s easily my favorite form of social media; why not follow along?

Feel free to introduce yourself on any of these platforms; I look forward to connecting!
