Ever since I can remember I've heard the comment that there is "no difference" between Canadians and Americans. I respectfully beg to differ as there is a difference on so many levels! We have unique Canadian culture consisting of Canadianisms, a Canadian perspective on world events, Canadian cuisine as well as products and foods only available in Canada. This blog is dedicated to celebrating all things Canadian from "my perspective" as a Canadian. Please enjoy your visit and be sure to visit often.

Americans should never underestimate the constant pressure on Canada which the mere presence of the United States has produced. We're different people from you and we're different people because of you. Living next to you is in some ways like sleeping with an elephant. No matter how friendly and even-tempered is the beast, if I can call it that, one is effected by every twitch and grunt. It should not therefore be expected that this kind of nation, this Canada, should project itself as a mirror image of the United States.

Canadian Maple Cream Cookies

Canadian love their maple syrup!   Making a trip to the sugar bush in the early spring is a true Canadian delight.  Maple syrup is not just for pancakes though.  It is made into maple sugar or candy and used as an ingredient in cooking, baking and grilling.  In fact maple syrup is one of my favourite ingredients to cook with.  The traditional shape for maple sugar and maple cream cookies is of course the maple leaf.  A few days ago we received a package from oldest grandbaby (age 3) who had visited the sugar bush.  Inside were two packages of Jakeman's Canadian Maple Cream Cookies. 

Jakeman's is a Canadian company established in 1876 by George and Betsy Anne Jakeman who immigrated from Oxfordshire, Enland and settled in Oxford County near Woodstock, Ontario.  They produce quality maple syrup gift and gourmet products in upscale retail outlets world wide.  Jakeman's continues to promote Canadian maple syrup through quality products and top notch business practices.  Jakeman's is located at 454414 Trillium Line, RR# 1 Beachville, Ontario N0J 1A0, Canada.
