As I write, I am flying home to BC from having just left my eldest daughter to start her residency in Ontario where she will officially start her life. She keeps telling her Dad and I that she has been on her own for years already.

May 14th, 2020


Supporting local as I mentioned last week is something we are trying to really promote. Saturday night date night was ordering from Zythos greek restaurant in Walnut Grove. As self proclaimed foodies…I think we are probably greek food snobs too…because we are very picky with what we consider good greek food. We usually first judge good Greek food by their tzaziki, if its not fresh and tasty ...

Did you know there is a science behind all this baking???

May 1st, 2020
This week my daughter and I jumped on the Sourdough starter band wagon...we figured sourdough is probably our favourite type of bread next to a good italian loaf of any kind, so why not. Since its been trending it has definitely been on our minds. We even had a family member that is a chef and at the beginning of all of the closures delivered to us a delicious loaf of homemade sourdough that ...
