Pack some variety & nutrition into your family’s lunchboxes!
For this episode of my cooking show on Rogers TV Ottawa, I tackled the task of showing some love to the lunchbox. One of the hardest things about packing lunches – for kids or for grownups – is keeping things fresh with lots of variety. I mean, let’s face it – who wants to eat sandwiches or leftovers every day? On today’s episode, I’m delighted to share three tasty treats that are sure to perk up any packed (or at-home) lunch with bright, bold flavours.

I am a huge fan of biscuits, both sweet and savoury. I have been playing around with different ways to use versatile, delicious homemade biscuit dough and I think rolling it up around tasty fillings is one of the best ways to enjoy it.
Crisp, raw vegetables are a great option for lunch boxes. They deliver colour, taste and crunch, perking up the palate for the rest of the meal. This tasty Asian-inspired carrot salad is sure to be a hit with kids and grownups, thanks to its bright, fresh flavours.
Rich, gooey and deliciously decadent, these brownies are one of the most wonderful things I have ever baked. Putting a graham cracker crust under my favourite chewy brownie recipe, throwing in some salted caramel baking chips and popping a layer of marshmallows on top really takes this dessert to the next level.
