An April Note


Hello! I wanted to share a few things with you and thought I would whip up a quick post on this windy and rainy afternoon.

Little did I know when I decided to wrap up Nova Scotia Kitchens in December that I wouldn’t have been able to do any more visits during these months anyway. I wanted to pop back in for one more post, to let you know that all of the recipes and visits will remain available on the Nova Scotia Kitchens site until November. The podcast episodes are available through your favourite podcast app or you can play them directly from the post for each visit.

I’m guessing that you likely have some connection to Nova Scotia if you found your way here. It has been a difficult time here lately, and I wanted to share a few lovely things with you.

Kelly’s Nova Scotia Oatcakes are one way to bring a bit of Nova Scotia into your kitchen. There are gluten-free and vegan options, too! Kelly shared a delicious spring-y risotto recipe with me; I’m craving that bright lemon flavour right about now. Oatcakes were one recipe that I didn’t manage to make happen, so I’m glad to have Kelly’s recipe to share with you.

This isn’t about food, but it is about kitchens, and handwashing. I recorded a soapmaking class from my very own Nova Scotia Kitchen if you’re interested in learning to make your own soap. The videos are over at the Nova Scotia Kitchens Facebook page. It’s something I’ve been making for a very long time and often get asked questions about, so I was happy to have the chance to record it for anyone who is interested in learning!

As this time at home continues (and may get a bit tiresome) I hope that you’re well, and looking after yourself. And I hope that you find a little bit of joy and comfort in the recipes and visits in Nova Scotia Kitchens.
