Local cider

This tart, thirst-quenching cider is made with just one ingredient: juicy Ontario apples. Not too sweet, and with a gentle fizz, it's the sip we can't get enough of.

Genius gadget

Mashed potatoes gluey or lumpy? It helps to start with the right potatoes (russets or Yukon Golds are best), but it's the masher that makes all the difference. This genius little gadget doles out perfectly smooth and creamy spuds every time.

Good grips potato ricer, $40, OXO.

Fun treat

What could be more delightful than a hand-held pie? Cinnamon pastry and a light glaze make these pumpkin hand pies our new fall fave – but the variations are endless (and we won't tell if you have one for breakfast).
