Oh, Canada! Recipes To Make Your Canada Day Weekend A Fabulous One! #LMDConnector

School is officially out for Summer!  Little One just completed her first year of school!  Forgive me if I get a little bit weepy!  I cannot believe our little preemie is now a Junior Kindergarten graduate!

With the end of the school year and the beginning of Summer, what better way to celebrate than kicking the Canada Day long weekend off a little early?

Oh, Canada!  How we love thee! 

We also love BBQ season...especially with a Canadian favourite ingredient --maple syrup!

Check out my Maple BBQ Ribs recipe. Gotta love adding a little bit of Canadiana with some maple syrup made on our farm!

For outdoor entertaining,  I've also got my Filipino BBQ recipe (which was featured in Eat In Eat Out Magazine!) and my Manitoulin Shawarma recipe (which recently made the Eat In Eat Out Blogger Spotlight).

I have a bunch of favourites my family and friends request that I make, but I'm always on the look out for new recipes to try.  When I'm stumped, I frequent the Life Made Delicious website for recipe ideas.  The recipes are quick, easy, and made with busy parents in mind, I'm sure!  The neat thing is that for most of the recipes, Little One gets to help me from prep, cook, to assembly and plating!

Of course, nothing is sweeter than enjoying quality time with loved ones and a light, refreshing beverage and  a scrumptious dessert together!  Outdoor dining and spending time on the patio is what we look forward to in the Summer!

Some great ones to try are:

I've found these and countless other recipes on They've quickly become family favourites.

Check out the website and let me know which recipes you'll be serving up this Summer!
