Arugula, also know as rocket or roquette in other parts of the world, is a peppery tasting, nutrient packed food that comes with many health benefits.
This year for Halloween, I decided to decorate our house with smaller pumpkins that could be roasted and enjoyed in a variety of different ways. Don’t get me wrong, we did crave one pumpkin which was set out on our front steps aimed at scaring little trick or treaters. Not sure we successfully achieved that with my amateur carving skills, but we tried.
Nothing marks the end of summer to me like the age old tradition of making tomato sauce, or rather tomato passata. Like many of my friends and family, I spent Labour Day weekend, sorting, washing, cooking, pressing and canning fresh fragrant tomatoes, for consumption during the cold winter months. Nothing like the sweet smell and taste of freshly made tomato sauce in the dead of winter!
