Some of the best conversations happen around the table. There’s something truly special about sharing food together and slowing down to enjoy one another’s company. Brunch is the perfect excuse to get together over food and weekends are simply made for slowing down. Therefore, brunching and weekends are the perfect combo!
Brunch menus seem to vary greatly, so this month, we’ve been asking our #CanolaConnect community:
At OHEA's 39th annual conference this past March, all conference attendees went home with a copy of OHEA's cookbook Homegrown! We would love to see what you have cooked from the book so far and share your photos on the blog, along with anything else that you would like to share about the cookbook or the recipes.
Please send photos and/or comments to Tamara at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime from now until the end of May, to be featured on the blog and on our social media channels.

So it's Shrove Tuesday or Fat Tuesday or better yet Pancake Tuesday and in keeping with the day I made a couple batches of pancakes. You could go out and pick a box of Aunt Jemima up at the store but pancakes are so simple to make from scratch. Here is my favourite pancake recipe I learned in kindergarten class and has been my go to recipe ever since.

"When I was growing up in Trinidad, my Mom served a lentil stew as a side dish that was a family favourite. I had no idea then how versatile and nutritious lentils were or that they grew in Canada. Now I have my own signature lentil dish that I prepare quite regularly in the early fall; it's especially great at barbeques."-Rosemarie
