One of my fondest memories growing up was waking up to the welcomed aromas of homemade baked bread on a long weekend Sunday.
For Mother’s Day this past weekend, I wanted to recreate that exact same bread that my mother used to make for us (Mom deserves some love back!)…but with a masala turmeric twist!
Rummaging through my mother’s old recipe file, I found her homemade baked bread recipe. The reviews were great and everyone said it was just like mom’s.
I realized making fresh baked bread doesn’t take a rocket scientist! No bread machine required.

Super easy, this soup gets most of its flavour from garlic. A couple of weeks ago we were at the Niagara Garlic Festival and picked up some delicious Ontario grown garlic which is finding its way into ALL my meals.
For this recipe I used “Music” variety. It’s mild and sweet making it easy to consume a couple of cloves at a time!

It’s been a
warm hot summer. I’m not complaining about the heat by any means–that would not be me. This is what I wait for eleven months of year!
This summer I’m cooling down with this awesome Turmeric Tonic. Without sufficient hydration especially in the summer months, we can feel worn out and lethargic.
My turmeric tonic is both cleansing and detoxifying with the added bonus of amazing turmeric! Show your body some love and caring- it’s a great way to start a gorgeous sunny summer day!
