As we roll into fall and winter here in the Sea to Sky, cravings for our favourite comfort foods (you know, the ones that give you that warm, fuzzy feeling) seem to be nurtured with each rainy day. With Squamish’s substantial population of Indian descent, we are fortunate to be on the receiving end of a plethora of authentic Indian offerings, made with fragrant herbs and spices to give it plenty of mouth-bursting flavours.
“Squamish lies at the head of a long fiord defended by steep rock walls that penetrate inland forty kilometres from the Salish Sea. The fiord merges into a wide estuary backed by high snowy mountains. And from those mountains a great river pours into the estuary. This is Squamish Valley."
In a community as creative as Squamish, there’s no need to let perfectly good walls go bare. Our mountain town is known for its quaint central core and proximity to nature, and though we are snuggly situated between the mountains and the sea, who’s to say that everything in between can’t have a little panache?
Muffins are incredibly forgiving, and you have endless flavour possibilities. They come together in a pinch and they smell amazing. They are also easy to freeze after baking and add into school lunches!
