The youngest made cookies today! It’s a great little recipe actually, one that she nabbed right off the back of our jar of Kraft peanut butter: I used to scoff at this recipe, but it actually works… and it’s the fastest recipe in the history of cookie making! All you need is: 1 cup of […]

Lunch #599 – Spinach and strawberry salad

Posted by: andrea tomkins In: Recipes and Food

I’m one lunch away from 600 lunches! I wanted to post number 599 here because it involves a salad dressing that is too good not to share. It only take a couple of minutes to make, and beats the bottled stuff by a mile. This one is great on spinach and strawberries. You can add some […]

Savory “upside down” chicken pot pie recipe

Posted by: andrea tomkins In: Recipes and Food

I’ve had this recipe kicking around for years – written longhand on a sheet of paper. So long, in fact, that I decided I needed to get it down in a digital format to avoid catastrophe. And THEN I thought, hey, why not share it here too? There’s no photo, because it doesn’t look pretty […]

Maple kale and sweet potato salad

Posted by: andrea tomkins In: Recipes and Food

I’m not sure if this really qualifies as a salad, but I SHALL CALL IT A SALAD AND A SALAD IT SHALL BE. (That being said, I think this it could also make a very nice side dish too. Maybe served with a pork chop?) This made an excellent lunch – a veritable cornucopia of […]

Lunch number 541

Posted by: andrea tomkins In: Recipes and Food

Perfection in a bun! This meatball sandwich was made using this cheaty recipe for meatballs. And totally unrelated, this is cracking me up today. Hamburger earmuffs for the win! Share the post “Lunch number 541″ FacebookTwitterGoogle+PinterestStumbleUponE-mail

  • Christine: i would try the ukelele class!!
  • Carolyn: It would likely be Family Art or Family Djembe. Any one of our kids would totally be into those if only because then their parent would have to final
  • Tracey: Our family would sign up for family guitar - amazing!! I wish we could sign up for 'family' stuff everywhere, especially at the gym!!
  • Bonnie: Music in Motion 1 for my eldest daughter. What fun!
  • Brenda A: Rock n Roll choir sounds like such a great time and my girls would love this course. I wish much success to the Bluesfest School!
  • Jennifer D: Music in Motion 1 looks like a lot of fun!
  • KL: I think my daughter would love the Rock-n-Roll choir although I'm wondering if Family Guitar would be fun for her and dad.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (14) and Sarah (12). I am the Editor of the Kitchissippi Times as well as Capital Parent Newspaper. I'm also a regular contributor to MediaSmarts.ca. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999 (which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which). The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
