Weekend Reading & Connect with Simple Bites

It is safe to say that fall is just around the corner. Here in Quebec, the first red leaves on our maple trees are what give the approaching season away. For the time being, though, it’s warm-but-not-too-hot, sunny, and still perfectly suitable for sitting on the back porch while munching apples.

Fall is about routine, returning to school, and for me, it’s about connecting. Friends are back in town from various holidays, families are gathering for Sunday dinners, and older siblings are in class — making toddler playdates a great way to catch up with girlfriends.

Although I can’t invite every one of you over for tea and cookies, I’d still love to connect this autumn — 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. (Psst! Help me reach my 1000 fans milestone!)


At my readers’ requests, Simple Bites now has a Flickr group, and now I can see what you’re cooking for a change! Stop in and share photos of your farmer’s market finds, the kids whooping it up in the kitchen, or your stash of home preserves.


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!

  1. What a gorgeous picture! This is my favorite time of year, not least because of the delicious, bounteous foods that are coming into season — tomatoes, squashes, apples, pears, fall greens…and of course apple-cider doughnuts. 😉
