Cathy Enright, P.H.Ec., one of OHEA's members lost power last weekend from the tornado in Ottawa. Instead of panicking at the fact that she could not use her appliances, Cathy made blueberry grunt from the CHEA cookbook on the BBQ, during the power outage. YUM! Thanks for sharing Cathy, and great idea to use the BBQ! Find the recipe below.

Hearty Pumpkin Loaf
By: Tamara Saslove, P.H.Ec.
Looking for a breakfast friendly loaf recipe? Look no further! With minimal added sugar, this loaf is just the right amount of sweet for any time of day. I love it on it's own, fresh out of the oven or topped with pumpkin butter. This recipe uses spelt flour, which has 4.5x the amount of fibre, compared to white flour and the recipe has even more fibre from the added dates, so don't be afraid to have a slice (or two!).

This whole gardening year I have had high hopes that I would have enough tomatoes to make this savoury tomato jam. With the devastating falling over of my giant tomato plants, I thought for sure I would be waiting till next year to achieve this dream. But. My plants had other ideas.
I managed to collect enough for two batches of a savoury tomato jam that was an office favourite at the test kitchen I worked for back in AB. Essentially its the most fancy ketchup analog you'll ever eat. I love it on toast, warmed up on sandwiches, or even by the spoonful. Haha. ;)
