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 this episode, which you can now watch online, 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.
Crunchy carrot and pea shoot salad
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.
S’mores brownies with salted caramel
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.
