Big love to my co-captain of chaos-coordination...the skate-tying, princess-chaperoning, value-instilling, beach bags schlepping, affection-dishing, meal-cooking, role-modelling man our four b***s adore & have the privilege of calling their daddy. you're all in on our family frontiers, step up huge for us every day & none of this works without you (#tagteam). you're loved & appreciated to infinity& beyond ...๐Ÿ’™
love & thanks to my dad for being one of the wisest, most generous men i may ever know, my fil for helping raise an incredible family man (both whom our kids adore as their grandpas), and all the other dads rocking daddy-hood in our lives! a very happy father's day to all you devoted dads (present & passed) & dad figures out there! you are valued & deserve all the praise today & every day ๐Ÿ’™ #dadsday2019 #squaresofgratitude

Back to life with the wildlings with a grateful heart & well-fuelled parenting tank from our #momcampgreycounty adventures {gifted experience}  we've been visiting grey county steady as a family for the last 13 years, but still so many firsts were experienced this getaway, like cider-sippin' with maker-selected food pairings along the @applepietrail in this emerging wine/cider region for ciderfest (*on til' sunday!*) & enjoying the tour to the fullest aboard @thebeerbusco with our savvy guide ben (who also takes great pics ๐Ÿ˜‰). pit stops at faves of thornbury @thecheesegallery @thornburybakery to enjoy fine, locally sourced cheeses & freshly baked delights were a treat for the tastebuds, as was the immersive tasting menu experience with celebrity ojibway chef @keeshig90 before winding down with spectacular, serene sunset views from resting place b&b overlooking the vineyards of @coffinridge & beautiful georgian bay.  the perfect way to cap off #momcamp was a rejuvenating visit to @scandinaveblue, starting with a dose of nature therapy & mindful stroll along their newly opened forest bathing trail, before an invigorating plunge in their scandinavian baths.  all a truly unforgettable experience that would make for a unique girlfriends' or couples' getaway.  have you visited any of these gems of @visitgrey before?  i hope to be back in the fall to celebrate andrew's milestone birthday, maybe with a stop for some "golden eye" at @spyciderhouseanddistillery opening this summer! #visitgrey #cidergrowshere #smalltownlove

Asparagus a minute, but who else (finally) has al fresco dining weather in their forecast?! ๐Ÿ™Œ flashing back to one of our fave, classic finger foods we shared last year (and whipped up a few nights ago) that'll make a delicious appy for your weekend entertaining/dining! as simple as grabbing cold leftover or cooked then cooled asparagus & wrapping prosciutto around stalk on an angle. place on a long platter + drizzle balsamic glaze when ready to serve. that's it! tip: make sure prosciutto is very thinly sliced! .
what are you up to this weekend? whatever's in your forecast, have a beautiful one with your peopleโค #lacucinadikerrs .

Mom suit on inhibitions be gone! ๐Ÿ‘™
i'm not quite sure when the switch went off, but one day exuding confidence in the body i have today was a better fit than the mental shackles of chasing some ideal form, that all the time i spent covered up worrying about what "he", and "she" and "they" were thinking of my imperfections was precious time wasted as i became aware they were too busy worrying about their own, and that i've never felt a greater sense of aliveness than when i'm doing life with my brood. and since it looks like swimsuit temps may finally be sticking around here in the gta, you bet i won't be spending a single second sidelining myself because of my flawfulness. there's life to live, water slides to conquer & waves to tackle alongside my kiddos, and zero time for fixing, tucking and adjusting unruly straps and hooks while i do. today #ontheblog - mom tested, mom approved "swimsuits made for mom life, every budget & body"!

Ad: guys, you know how much i love sharing ways to simplify family management while we try to tackle all the things, and becoming a pc insiders™ member is my latest love to #savethesanity! getting free grocery pickup services through pc express ™ at our local real canadian superstore® has saved us more than a few times in the lunch game department this school year as well as staying on top of the appetite of our 4 growing kiddos. the produce picked by our personal shopper is always fresh and has given us hours back in time to enjoy the life-giving things in life. this includes instilling my love of cooking with my little sous chef using foods we already use and love from among the pc® products and making plans for our summer adventures (towards which, because we have an annual subscription, we’ll also get a $99 travel credit at pc® travel services!). we’re also earning 20% back in pc optimum points on select brands on top of what we already earn, which has allowed us to save loads of money by redeeming points towards other family essentials, like stuff for summer camp and special spring occasion gifts from joefresh.com and shoppersdrugmart.ca that are also eligible for free shipping! the amount of time and money we’ve saved has already covered the cost of an annual subscription and we think your family needs this in your life too! become a pc insiders member – try one month free on a monthly subscription at https://izea.it/ahbdnfc (offer excludes quebec residents; terms and conditions apply). #imapcinsider

"nobody puts [mommy] in a corner!" #dancelikenooneswatching #weekendmantra .

we'll be plugging in our planned spring/summer travels over the weekend, and it's unanimous that this road trip we did 2 years ago was one where we all (literally) had the "time of our lives!" (with the normal side doses of crazy that is family travel ๐Ÿ˜‰) my childhood dream stay come true at the real-life @dirtydancingmovie kellerman's resort @mtnlakelodge in @visitvirgina followed up with an action-packed stay @caribbeanresortmb - a top family-focused resort close to all the best of @mymyrtlebeach (memories include an epic toddler throw down on @skywheelmyrtle, a heart-stopping moment of thinking we lost a child in @wonderworks_mb, and a major seasoned mom "oops" of forgetting our stroller...on location baby goods rental for the save๐Ÿ™Œ). it ain't easy, but always worth it๐Ÿ’ž

this #fbf, tell us what your fave family adventures (or misadventures) have been so far while we all seize the friday feel goods & collectively cha cha into the weekend!๐Ÿ’ƒ have a wonderful one๐Ÿ’• #solongmay #keepingupwithus

Who would i want to sip n' savour a cup of tea with?  my mumzy (the <3 of our family & qt time with hard to find amidst large family-raising life)๐ŸŒธ
.
.
reflecting back, the most memorable & meaningful life moments for me have centred around food, and that connection is a large part of what's drawn me back to cooking & finding joy in sharing simple recipes with you to make with your own families.
.
.
enjoying this gastro-friendly experience with @canolaeatwell @brandandbuzz and a room full of fab, fascinatored๐Ÿ‘’ women was certainly one to add to the memory books.
.
.
from devouring a fibre-rich spread from kitchen queen @mairlynsmith 's latest best-seller #peaceloveandfibre prepped by culinary talent @andreabuckettcooks, being educated by @how_to_eat on the quality of our (not to be taken for granted) cdn food supply & how a positive food mindset = less fear more relax + enjoy + appreciate, getting schooled by mairlyn on how to measure recipe ingredients properly (don't dare use dry cups for liquid like i did!๐Ÿ˜ฎ) & whipping up a batch of oatmeal choc. chip cookies with baking goddess rachel of @maplekeytartco, to learning about the stories of the canadian farm-to-food process by @farminginpearls & leaving with a new appreciation & respect for the families that work tenaciously & care deeply about sustainably producing canada's top crop (like canola oil!) to feed our people.
.
.
closing the evening with a mad hatter party with lots of lols, cookie nibbling, and proper tea-making 101 (it's an art, guys!...don't burn your leaves, no spoon-cup tinking, and tuck your pinkie away...oops!) sipping from the treasured teacup collection of mairlyn's dear mum she so graciously gifted each of us as reminders of the legacy of love & that life's too short not to #usethegoodstuff ๐Ÿ’–
.
.
and a final heart-felt takeaway - that a life well-lived includes filling it with people, places, nutrients & experiences that fuel our minds, hearts & souls, and no matter our life stories & backgrounds, food has the undeniable pull to connect us all๐Ÿ’ž #gutfullheartfuller #canolaeatwell #canolaconnect ๐Ÿ“ท:@joshteewhy

tell us one of your favourite family recipes and/or memories of connecting!
