This is one of my favorite ways to serve corn on the cob. The rustic appeal of the husks and slightly charred kernels makes this the perfect BBQ side dish. Plus the tied back husks make this easy to grasp and fun for kids to eat. I omit the chili powder on my kids’ cob, however the adults love the kick of heat.
Total time 10 minutes
- 4 ears corn with husks
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
- 1 lime, zested, and cut into wedges
You’re tired, working around the clock and between diaper changes and feeding schedules you are informed you are going on vacation! Fabulous, right? Well, holidays with an infant are not quite like those before a baby. Being a tireless mom you are so deserving of a break, however it can be quite distressing planning and preparing for vacation with your infant. If you are like me then you are a passionate mom who believes in providing the very best for your child and you are not willing to compromise no matter where you find yourself in the world.
I could eat salads everyday in the summer, however my kids may not share my same passion for the leafy greens. This recipe ensures we all get something we like, chicken, fresh cherries and warm cheese…yum!!!

- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped shallot
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Constipation is far from comfortable, but for infants, constipation is a curse. Infants who suffer from constipation also typically experience abdominal bloating and gas. Vomiting is possible, depending on the severity but regardless of how bad it is, parents are always left with an irritable and unhappy infant.
This simple crostini is a perfect way to use to fresh cherries. It’s a beautiful appetizer for a summer BBQ or an after camp snack for the kids- either way, its delicious and loved by the whole family.
- 1 ½ cups pitted, chopped sweet cherries
- 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
- 4 slices rustic bread or baguette
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- ½ cup fresh ricotta
- Zest of 1 lemon
1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.
I’m not sure that any fruit says ‘summer’ quite like cherries. I remember being a kid and stopping at the roadside cherry stands on route to our favourite camping destinations. Nothing cooled you down (or quieted the kids) quite like a bag of fresh, organic, juicy cherries. Never mind the red juice smeared on smiling faces! Cherries are a delightful treat that truly are a seasonal joy.
I keep this hearty breakfast or anytime of day snack readily available in my fridge.

- 1 red apple, grated
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 ½ cups unsweetened apple juice
- 1 ½ cups plain Greek yogurt
- ½ cup sliced almonds
- 2 tablespoons flax seeds
- Fresh berries for serving
Here is one of my all-time favorite muffin recipes. A perfectly healthy on-the-go snack for toddlers and the whole family- I always have a bag of these in the freezer.

I try to approach every fruit that we cover in our blogs without bias or favouritism. Each fruit has its own range of health benefits to offer and something to celebrate. That said, I am only human and despite my best efforts…I have a favourite. And so I must embrace my failure to be impartial and toot the blueberry horn.

I've heard of so many parents who struggle with mealtimes. But if it tastes good, she's going to want to eat it.
