Vegan Snacks: Review & Giveaway

Vegan Snacks Review & Giveaway

  As you can probably tell from my recipes on this blog, we’re not a strictly vegan household. We enjoy eating all types of food – vegan or otherwise.  We also have relatives and friends who are vegan, so it’s not uncommon for me to buy vegan products. The nice folks over at Lloyd James provided […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Coconut Freezer Bars

Chocolate Peanut Butter Freezer Bars

I like having a stash of chocolate treats that I keep all to myself, in case of emergency chocolate cravings.   These little chocolate peanut butter coconut treats are stashed in my freezer, and I’m pretty sure nobody knows they’re in there but me. I’d like to keep it that way, because they’re way too good to share.  […]

Creamy Perogie Dinner

Creamy Perogie Dinner

I have a weakness for perogies.  To me, they are the ultimate comfort food.  I try to go easy on the carbs most of the time, but when it comes to perogies, I just can’t help myself.  And they make such a quick and easy dinner, so that’s a big bonus right there.  If it […]

Like most of us these days, I want my family and I to live healthy and active lives while minimizing our carbon footprint, but sometimes it’s hard to know where to start, or what options are available to us.  It can all be pretty overwhelming, but the good news is that there are lots of […]

Pork Picadillo Wraps

Pork Picadillo Wraps

Several months ago, I had the opportunity to attend a cooking class at Well Seasoned in Langley BC on how to cook perfect pork, featuring Johnston’s Local Quality BC Pork.  Along with other local bloggers and foodies in media, I sipped Narrative wine while watching Angie Quaale from Well Seasoned prepare delicious pork dishes for us all to sample.

We’ve been pretty lucky here in BC to have beautiful spring-like weather lately. We took our boat out on the water this weekend, and I felt a little bad posting photos of our outing while the rest of Canada is immersed in snow.   Took our boat out on the water this afternoon. What a […]
