I Am Not A Hockey Mom…

But I bow down to those of you who are.  Honestly, I don't know how you do it.  I watch your updates on Facebook...how you have three or four kids in hockey, all on different teams, and somehow you are able to keep it all straight.  Every game, every practice, ever schedule.  You amaze me.  I'm lucky if I can make it outside with my kids each day! I know for some of you the relief is near.  The hockey season is just about over and you now get … [Read more...]

Big Red is Back!

I love cook books.  I love how much inspiration is inside each and every one.  I enjoy flipping through, looking at the beautiful photography that a really good cook book has.  I love finding a recipe, and making it my own.  I have a few cook books that are my very favorite.  One from a famous Canadian Chef, another is a cookie book...but I get to let you in on a little secret.

"Can I feel safe using them?"  All questions I ask myself regularly while I do my weekly … [Read more...]

Winter Boots?

Yes. I said winter and boots. It's coming. You know it as well as I do, soon our hot weather will be gone and we'll be shoveling snow for 8 months. And quite honestly I can't say that I'm complaining.  I'm a winter girl.  The heat of summer and I, well we just don't mix.  I like to layer up, wear lot of clothes, and yes, even winter boots. This winter I am buying new boots.  I'm in the market for a new pair anyway!  And I'm thrilled that was of … [Read more...]
