We love how versatile this delicious salad is. The dried fruits and quinoa, combined with the bright flavours of the dressing make it a great option as a meal, perfect to bring on an adventure and great as a side for dinner.
Curry Ketchup
This dip quickly became a favourite at the Canteen, delicious with fries and perfect with a smokies on a bun. It’s easy to make at home, keeps well in the fridge and will quickly become your go-to condiment.

This traditional Quebec dessert is easy to make, requires few ingredients and is perfect for a cozy evening by the fire.
Simple BBQ Meatballs
We’ve said more than once that the key to spending more time playing in the snow is to have a few quick and delicious meals that can be put together without too much effort.
Campfire Pizza From Scratch
Pizza might now be the first thing that jumps to mind when planning a camping trip but once you try it’ll quickly become a tradition.
Family Hiking Weekend on The Kootenay Plains
Head out for a weekend of easy family hikes, memories by the campfire and a little exploring in David Thompson Country and the Abraham Lake area.
Pancakes with campfire-roasted peaches
Lazy mornings when we’re camping usually mean pancakes. Adding peaches cooked on the campfire makes it even better.
Lemon Rosemary Foil Pack
Coming back from a day of hiking quickly put together a few ingredients, wrap it up in foil and place on the fire while you enjoy a little après.
Chocolate Chips Blondies
These are basically a giant chocolate chip cookies, just a little better suited for adventures.
Simple Mac & Cheese
The trick to spending more time outside is to have a few quick and delicious meals in the plans. That way there’s no excuse after school or work but to grab a bite and head out for an evening of snowshoeing.
Vanilla Marshmallows
Why make your own marshmallows? Aren’t they hard to do? It’s surprisingly simple, fun and they taste so much better! The real bonus is that homemade marshmallows fit way better between graham crackers for your s’mores!
Raspberry Honey Yogurt Ice Pops
There’s something about longer days and warm afternoons that just make your crave an ice pop. We’re ready for summer, longing for fresh fruits and dreaming about our next adventure.
Lime Ice Pops
