Every day we should be excited about what we are eating even if it just means something as simple as making use of a wonderful find at our local farmers market. Wineries, craft breweries and artisanal cheese makers are emerging and adding a new dimension to our local cuisine, enriching it and extending it well beyond it's traditionial boundaries. West coast salmon, New Brunswick lobster, Ontario cheddar are all being paired with wonderful Canadian wines and locally harvested fruits and vegetables. Foodies are in heaven and locavores are finally coming into their own. 

With farmers markets popping up everywhere during the summer, it's never been easier to make the right choices. The added benefit is that items are picked closer to their peak of freshness, enhancing taste, texture, and nutrition, and have had less time to spoil increasing shelf life in your kitchen.When you eat locally, you eat what's in season.  You'll remember that strawberries are the taste of summer and that juicy,  ruby red tomatoes are what we long for all year. Summer tomatoes are packed with sunshine. Here are a few of my recipes to bring a sunny smile to your face.
