It is mid week Wednesday and the end of the work week for me!  I will pretend I am not excited as I type this little intro but you know I am bouncing around in my chair with excitement.  Tomorrow is Canada day here and I took Friday off as well to make a 4 [...]


Let’s kick this Monday off with a “lounge in front of the TV on a Saturday night comfort food dinner plate“.  That is exactly what we did on Saturday night.  It was a busy day over all with a birthday party,  house work and a trip to the stock car races only to be canceled [...]

Ummmm Hi… I can’t really stay and chat for very long.  Ever feel like all you do is rush around to meet time lines and appointments?  Not only do the days fill up but now we are into the evenings, especially with summer finally here.  Soccer nights mean for a rushed dinner but you still [...]

What is in your ultimate bowl of cereal?  For me it is always a combination of flavors and textures and very rarely does it come from one box.  Sounds odd doesn’t it?  Well to be honest I am quite weird anyway so it seems a perfect match. How do you like your cereal – crunchy [...]


Happy Monday to you!  A busy weekend entailed some family visits, some grocery shopping, a couple of stops at the park and a special visit to a Cooking-in-law that is under going some back yard changes.  They are getting a new outdoor bread oven installed.  ( pictures to come later ) For me, the weekend [...]


Guess what’s back!!  You guessed it.  Another round of chocolate cream cheese cupcakes.  You cannot go too many months without baking these again if you can even survive that long.  It is a sun-filled day today so I thought I would share with you a baking recap from a few nights ago.  I made these [...]
