Pie Crust

Everybody should have a handy dandy pie crust recipe in their back pocket – perfect for Quiche or pot pies, tarts or pumpkin pie! This is a great recipe to have on stand by.

Pie Crust

2 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 lb (or 1/2 a box) vegetable shortening
1/2 TBSP vinegar
1 egg

Makes 3 pie crusts, easily doubles for 3 pie crusts plus 3 crust lids.

Mix all ingredients together, form into 3 balls and cover in plastic wrap. Allow to rest for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator before rolling out. Then use as recipe directs!

Halloween Costumes

We all know that a baby’s first Halloween costume is the cutest thing ever. But don’t let the fact that your little one is still on the inside keep you from having a killer costume this fall! Here are a couple of great ideas I came across so that you do not have to resort to being ‘Juno’ or ‘Pregnant Nun’ though those are pretty cute ideas too!

Words of Wisdom

Here is a great video I am re-posting from my friend Erika’s blog – such lovely thoughts…

August 21, 2010


Let me start off by saying to my friends and family “No this is not my way of telling you that Hubby and I are expecting.”

Now with that out of the way let me thank you for visiting. I hope that this will be the first of many times you come to this site. Many of you know me as ‘Simply Fresh’, or the girl with the Ottawa food blog. It’s true – that’s me! But I’m really a very well rounded food lover and with more and more of my friends starting their families I find (delightfully) that the conversation is turning to food and nutrition now more than ever. I also noticed that there is a bit of a lack of information available to pregnant women who are looking for recipes that will help them to naturally get more vitamins and nutrients into their meals. If this sounds familiar, then this site is for you!

You do not need to be pregnant to enjoy the recipes found here, but I will focus the majority of my nutritional information to those who are thinking of becoming pregnant, are currently expecting or have just welcomed their baby to the world and are breast feeding.

Thank you again for visiting – don’t forget to pass this site along to anyone you think may enjoy it!
