Shop Local. Eat Local.

The average Ontario shopper intends to spend almost $700 on holiday gifting this year. If just $70 or 10% of this was spent on edible gifts crafted from Ontario artisan producers, the economic impact would equate to $500 million extra dollars in our Ontario food system, supporting up to 10,000 food sector jobs.

Imagine the difference YOU could make!  
Each time you spend money, you choose the kind of world you want to live the change.

I can't begin to tell you how grateful I am to all of you who have already supported Foodivore, and have Shopped Local to fill your holiday table.  It is such a privilege to inspire you, share recipes with you and bake/cook for you.  It fills my heart with joy when I hear how what I have written or said to you in conversation  has inspired you to think differently about how you eat, how you shop for your food or why buying local  is important. 

I am so pleased to offer you Holiday Treats -available only until December 21st.  
Extra special appetizers, breakfast treats and gifts. 
No preservatives or additives.  Made with local ingredients (where possible).
 Made in small batches.  Loaded with love. 
It will be easy to spend your 10% locally!

Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you...I just can't say it enough! xo

Best Oven Roasted Local Carrots

4-5 large carrots cleaned and sliced on an angle about 1/2 inch thick
olive oil

On a parchment lined baking sheet drizzle olive oil and S&P over the carrots.  Toss lightly until coated.  Roast at 400 degrees for 30 min or so, until edges are browned and carrots are soft.  They'll be caramelized, sweet, soft and delicious--you may not ever eat another steamed carrot again!
