I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Carrot Stick Salad

Just another salad...but with parsnip. Parsnip is such a tasty veggie that is just not used as often as it should be.

3 carrots, in sticks
1 parsnip, in sticks
1 Granny Smith, in sticks
1/2 cup raisins
2 tbsps pumpkin or sunflower seeds

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tbsp honey
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp salt

2o mint leaves

Mix the dressing ingredients together and toss with the "sticks" and raisins. You can do this a couple hours ahead, then sprinkle with the seeds and chopped mint leaves when you are ready to serve.
