I would not touch anything that looked gross when I was young AND I still have a hard time. Especially the squishy, slimy things like shrimp, lobster, clams and octopus...just to name a few. I've decided that I need to try at least one "gross" seafood item a week and... Continue reading

I am the princess of procrastination. I do my best under pressure, and last minute projects have the best results when I procrastinate. For some reason this WHISKEY SMOKED SALMON CHOWDER has been a recipe that I've been putting off all week. I HAVE to make it today, before my... Continue reading

One of the biggest complaints the kids had about moving to Penticton was that there was not enough snow. Well, they got there wish this weekend and winter finally arrived! It was crazy how much snow dumped in this city in such a short time, it was quite evident that... Continue reading

I thought I would continue with the Super Bowl theme for this post, just because it's coming up(for those of you who didn't know). BTW I will be cheering for the Green Bay Packers, only because I like the name of their team...just being honest! I'm a huge fan of... Continue reading
