Why did you start your blog?
To keep track of my favourite recipes.
How did you decide on your blog name?
I had originally envisioned combining a food blog with a photography blog, so the “suppers” was to be the food part and the “seasons” would be the landscape photography part. I ended up not doing the photography part, but the name still fits with the seasonal nature of cooking.
What do you blog about?
A bit of everything. I love to bake, so there’s a lot of that. I also love comfort food, to get me through the long winter here in Muskoka. Ironically (given my blog’s name), I had very few of our suppers on my blog, mainly because it was too dark to photograph them. I’ve been working on including more of those lately by cooking them earlier in the day (and re-heating for family dinners).
What post are you most proud of and why?
I think I’m most proud of my Soft Cheese Bread post, because I know it has introduced a lot of people to baking their own bread. Love to spread the bread-baking love!
Which post do you wish received more love and why?
I loved my Warm Roasted Tomato, Onion and Feta Salad. Not only was it a really pretty dish, it was absolutely delicious and a great way to enjoy tomatoes in winter.
Which post’s success surprised you and why?
When I posted my Creamy Asparagus and Aged Cheddar Bake, I called it a “hot mess” in the recipe introduction. Despite that, it’s one of the most popular recipes on my blog!
What is one (non-kitchen) gadget you can’t live without?
My tablet. It’s perfect for keeping recipes close at hand in the kitchen and for making notes on.
What is one kitchen gadget you can’t live without?
My cast-iron skillet. I cook everything in it, from sweet to savoury. I love how it conducts heat and cooks things so well.
Favourite food, care to share a recipe?
Bread, or more specifically anything that includes the magical combination of flour and yeast. Sweet or savoury – I love it all! My Chelsea Buns recipe is one of my favourites, since it’s a Muskoka specialty.
What else should we know about you that may or not be in your “About Me” page?
I have been blogging in one form or another since 2000. I started with a personal blog, when blogging was in its infancy. I moved from that to a photoblog and from a photoblog to a food blog. Along the way, I taught myself to code html and css, which has come in very handy!
