Shaking Hands with the Season


I've been known to make 'that snarly face' when people say they love the Autumn season. I can't help it if everything around us right now just reminds me that dreaded winter and ungodly temperatures are coming. To me, the season is accompanied by one long loop of creepy ambient horror film music. Yet, I am making an honest effort this year to try and see the beauty and not the illness that is Fall ... no really, … [Read more...]

Just-Released News about A&W Chicken


Sometimes you turn to fast food, I get it. There are days when the schedule or just the ultimate craving calls for a stop and a quick meal. Again, I totally get that, been there many times. At the same time, we try to make the best choices we can, and find that balance between fast food and better food. Right? After all, we all know the speculations regarding the ingredients at fast food restaurants. It's … [Read more...]

Katy Perry Prismatic World Tour #InstaGLAM


In August we got to end the summer with a huge bang. Quite literally, actually, as we took in the Katy Perry Prismatic World Tour {complete with fireworks} with thanks to P&G. The creme de la creme of the evening was the chance to meet Katy Perry backstage before her concert! Now, this was exciting for myself, of course. Who doesn't like the chance to rub elbows with a celebrity from time to time? Yet, it was … [Read more...]

Halloween Fun with Target #TargetTrickorTweet


We're hosting a pretty big Halloween party this year, for both kids and adults. It'll be a fun and celebration before we all go out trick or treating together in my neighbourhood. Of course the schedule and life is whizzing by, and I recently looked at the calendar and realized - I don't have much time left to prepare! This week, while the kids were at school, I went to Target to shop for Halloween. I needed some … [Read more...]

The New Circulon Prime Cookware


For years we got away with mismatched, low quality cookware for our new home. In the beginning, changes were aplenty and I just needed something to cook with. Yet, experience and time in the kitchen has taught me that cooking does require some steadfast and dependable tools - to get the job done correctly and efficiently. And yes, the taste can depend on it. Plus, I recently got a new Induction Oven, so now I've once … [Read more...]

We all Love to Connect – It’s the Cheerios Effect!


I think about the amazing advances in technology and come to the conclusion that we can truly make anything happen. In the world right now, people and families are oftentimes spread across great distances, yet there are many ways to connect that make that distance seem insignificant. While I can text, message and talk to people without actually seeing them - it's always special to have that face-to-face contact. Having … [Read more...]

Blueberry Cake – a Farmers Recipe


Nothing beats what comes from farms, don't you agree? We have dear friends that are local farmers, and it's been an eye-opener for this city girl, for many reasons. Since meeting them, I have been introduced to the most amazing meals and dishes. Even some foods that I never liked at all, I tried out of politeness while there, and loved it. I cannot give enough kudos to the Mrs. of the farm, she's always in the … [Read more...]

Monster High Freaky Fusion – New and Hot!


I had a hard time coming up with a title for this post, since there's so much to be said about the new Monster High Freaky Fusion line which includes many dolls, accessories and a movie. Alternates were: 'Monster High Freaky Fusion - My Daughter is Obsessed' 'Desperately Seeking Monster High Freaky Fusion. Signed, Every Girl' 'Santa needs another Sleigh just for Monster High Freaky Fusion'. Get the … [Read more...]

Steak Carne Asada – Old El Paso Restaurante


There are some meals which will always be in our regular rotation and 'Mexican' is one of them. Tacos, Quesadillas, Fajitas, Enchiladas - love them all! Yet, what I make isn't the real deal, I know that from my frequent travels to Mexico. For many reasons, what I make isn't as authentic as I'd like, but I do try on a weekly basis. Of course when given the chance to review Old El Paso's new Premium Restaurante … [Read more...]



This past weekend was Thanksgiving, I have so much to be thankful for. We surrounded absolutely delicious food, my twins in dress-up {Bo Peep and Elsa} because well, they're them. My oldest set the table and made name places from post-its. So obviously these needed to put on the forehead, for most of the dinner and by everyone, adults included. I'm thankful for many reasons, yet also for incredible fun, silliness, … [Read more...]
