We have to hold ourselves back from adding pumpkin and sweet potato to everything this time of year. Actually, after trolling through our archives, it looks like we don’t hold

Baking with Fall’s Bounty on Global’s The Morning Show

We love visiting our friends each month at Global’s The Morning Show but this week we had a whole lot of laughs when our segment was taken over by an unsuspecting guest. When it comes to live TV you never know what’s going to happen, but this time, we couldn’t have anticipated fighting off more than just the hosts from

Food Win/Food Fail

If you follow us on Instagram, or anywhere for that matter, it’s easy to think our family meals are like the perfectly styled dishes on our social media or right here on the site. But they’re not. It’s a bad rap a lot of food blogger’s face. But when you write about family meals, it’s the last thing you want

Why I Love This Video & Know You Will, Too

This makes me happy for three reasons: It stars Esme and Scarlett, Ceri and Laura’s enchanting daughters. Not only do I think it’s pretty cool that Ceri and Laura get to work with their families from time to time, I find few things more enjoyable than listening to kids chat with each other, particularly when it pertains to a rather complex topic.

9 Delicious Thanksgiving Sides

We know you’ve got a plan for the main event on Thanksgiving. It’s probably the thing you make every year and maybe it’s the same thing your Mom always made. Stick with that! But why not shake up the extras this year? Add a salad to the table. Start with a soup (my favourite way of taking stress out of


5 Things We Love at Cool Mom Eats

You know we live for helping you guys out with dinner ideas, lunch-box inspiration, healthy breakfasts and all that jazz. But we need help sometimes, too, and we thought we’d share one of our favourite resources when we open the fridge and can’t see dinner for the groceries (does that happen to you?): Cool Mom Eats. It’s right there in

7 School Lunches That Aren’t Sandwiches

Don’t let a school-lunch-packing rut sneak up on you. Mix things up by thinking outside of the sandwich. Whip up a batch of fritters or mini quiche on the weekend and uneaten lunches will be reduced by 75%. Okay, I made up that last part, but it can’t heard to add a little variety, can it? And if you’re a


Take the Pulse Pledge and Win at Dinner

Ceri and I have taken the pulse pledge but, if I think about it, we’ve had an unofficial allegiance to pulses for years. Listen, I’m going to be frank. It’s not like my pledge with chocolate or Ceri’s vow to love tortilla chips forever but it’s a pretty loyal union since pulses (chickpeas, lentils, beans and peas) are the secret


What’s So Great About Pulses?

We’ve always been huge fans of lentils, chickpeas and beans at SPC. But Julian’s recent conversion to vegetarianism (more on that another time!) has made me want to add a few more pulse-oriented recipes to my roster. At this time of year, as the weather cools, it’s a perfect time to add more pulses to your diet; they’re an easy
