Advance Praise

"... I love this book"

The pure Prairie spirit, the sense of real community and a culture where baking is an essential skill set that many are eager to relearn.

And the recipes! From the Onion Lover’s Twist with its buttery, poppyseed filling to Wallnut’s Rye Bread with lots of caraway and a secret ingredient --- dill pickle juice; to the decidedly old-fashioned Mincemeat Muffins that are stored, as we did in the 70’s, in an ice cream pail. I can hardly wait to try the Salted Caramel Buttertarts with Bacon.

The pages are populated with stories of COVID-cooking but CJ also respectfully pulls back the curtain and peeks into home and restaurant kitchens as she defines, honours and shares the delicious regional cuisine of Saskatchewan with all of Canada.

"CJ makes it easy to make great food!! She totally inspired me to try pie crust."

I made the best homemade apple pie ever. And it was actually so easy and tasted so good!!  My mom even gave it a red ribbon. 🏆🥇And trust me she doesn’t give them out easily. Lol  It helped seeing how u do it on the Wheatland Cafe CJ. Thank you for inspiring me. ❤️❤️

If I can do it, you can too! ⭐️😎

“I Can’t say enough.”

CJ’s passion for cooking, connecting with people and giving back all shine through in this compilation of prized, local recipes. The pictures draw you in and the stories touch your heart – it doesn’t get any more Prairie than that.

Flipping through the pages brought me back to my roots, being reminded that everyone’s unique story is the secret ingredient to the delicious recipes showcased in this culinary read. Cooking and eating have connected families and friends for as long as we know, and COVID was a time no different.

Keep cooking, keep baking, and keep sharing the joy that brings everyone together - a true keepsake!"
