Great review from Ottawa food blogger YumYumYOW

We met Allie at the Beechwood Market a few weeks ago and after trying a sample, she picked up a couple of jars to review. Her review is linked right here… We […]

Part of the fun of Mom’s Homemade: Meeting so many nice folks!

August 6, 2019

When you start a “home” business one of the most important things you can do is get your product, and your name, out in as many places as possible.

We had an interesting conversation recently with someone about Mom’s Homemade. In fact, the conversation focused mainly on the “Homemade” part, so in the interests of being completely fair and open, we thought we should explain a few things. Due to Canada’s food and health regulations which keep us all safe, it’s very difficult anymore […]

Elusive “Ghosts” and Mom’s Hot Salsa

March 3, 2019

As I’ve experimented over the years with the salsa recipe, some of our friends and family started asking for a spicier version. Something with a little “bite back” to it. I took it as a challenge to balance taste and heat, and the quest began. First, the obvious Jalapeno peppers were added. Nope, not quite […]

February 23, 2019

As we approach the launch of Mom’s Homemade, the family is busy getting everything ready!
