I love the variety in your posts Jan, and the Gatherings posts are my favourite! Looking forward to reading along in 2014!


I love the idea of more editorial on gatherings and easy entertaining! Also my favourite blog of the week is the one where you wrap up the week and share all kinds of interesting tidbits from other sources as well. Thanks!


I just have to let you know how much I love your recipes so I hate to see that dwindle, but I can appreciate where you are in that regard. I have a preschooler, so the focus for me is still very much about the recipes and finding things he likes that are interesting and adventuresome and healthy for all of us. Kudos to you for some of our favorite family meals:
Pumpkin Biscuits- LOVE
Grilled Mediterranean Meatballs
Slow Cooker Turkey Meatballs with Apply BBQ sauce
Orzo salad with Feta, Lime and Mint
Orzo with Kale, Corn and Sausage
Turkey Burgers with Avocado Relish- 1st time I used buttermilk in burgers- so tender!
Thanks for all and good luck!

Thanks, Andrea! Im excited to share more about easy entertaining, too. Also, Im so pleased that you like my weekly roundups as its one of my favourites to write!

Thank you so much for your feedback Krista - Im blushing! Dont worry - there will still be lots of recipes shared... just not in every post. I cook every single day so there is no shortage of ideas for dinner, and Im thrilled to hear that some of mine have made it to your family table. 


Looking forward to reading your blog this year and can't wait for the book! Signing in Calgary? ;)

I love change, personally. And I love a good chat about cooking as much as I love a good recipe. I'll read whatever you write, my dear.

Jan Scott

Heres hoping - thats the plan anyways!


Like everyone else, I'm looking forward to reading more of your writing in 2014. Happy New Year and looking forward to the book coming out. :)
