Homegrown is an all-Canadian ingredient cookbook, with 160 recipes from coast to coast.

There are iconic Canadian Butter Tarts, Slow Cooker Beef and Barley Stew, and Tourtière all with a 2016 spin.

But make room for recipes like: Apple and Hemp Heart Salad, Red Lentil Waffles with Pear Sauce, Caramelized Onion and Cheddar Scones, Jambalaya, Birch Syrup Salad Dressing, Asian-style Nova Scotia Scallops with Miso Glaze, Roasted Chicken with thyme and apples, Stuffed Pork Tenderloin, Wheatberry and Lentil Salad or Duck Pilaf with Kamut and Wild Rice all made using Canadian ingredients.

Homegrown has recipes for every occasion, they are easy to make, easy to follow (after all the book is written by professional home economists) with ingredients that you can find in larger grocery stores, and includes full nutrient breakdowns including the carb choices for people living with diabetes, has cooking tips, and information about Canadian foods, agriculture and aquaculture. More than a cookbook, after you’ve read Homegrown you’ll win the next game of Canadian Trivial Pursuit the Food Edition, hands down.

All the recipes have been tripled tested, are fabulous and professional home economist approved.

    Hi Marilyn,
    I saw you recently on Global News Calgary and you were showing viewers your Homegrown recipe book. Is there anywhere in Calgary I can buy your book? I have been searching and don’t seem to be able to find it. My son-in-law is an excellent cook and loves to receive new cookbooks. I think he would love your book to add to his collection. Let me know. Good luck with all your future ventures!

    Cheers, Shelley MacDonald
