Apple and Berry Cobbler

Win or lose, it’s always fun to go to a Grey Cup party, especially when you have friends like mine who always bring great food to share!  My contribution was this Apple and Berry Cobbler.  I used apples and blueberries hoping to inspire the Bombers with a bit of “blue and gold” .   Of course, I didn’t think about the fact that the blueberries would turn everything purple – hope that didn’t jinx our team!  Regardless of the colour and the results of the game – the food and cobbler were a huge hit!

Apple & Berry Cobbler

Try using a different type of prairie berry every time – high bush cranberry, wild blueberry, saskatoon, raspberry, or blackberry.

Winter Donations

Even if we can’t donate fresh fruit to the charitable organizations we keep in contact with throughout the summer, you can still donate other goods to them!

Cheezy Zucchini Chips

One of the places that I picked apples at during the summer had a big garden with absolutely enormous zucchini in it. The homeower kindly offered to give me some zucchini – three in total! This recipe is how I used them up – large pieces of zucchini dry into much smaller chips, so you can use up a big zucchini really quickly this way. And this recipe is a much healthier way to enjoy a salty snack!

And that's just ONE of the three zuchinni I was given!


  • 1 large zucchini, thinly sliced.
  • Soy sauce (I used Bragg’s) or liquid smoke.
  • Grated parmesan cheese or nutritional yeast flakes.
  • Garlic powder, sea salt and black pepper to taste.
