At Long Last…Starbelly

Living out in the suburbs often has it’s drawbacks regarding nightlife and restaurant options.  Rising up among the vast oceans of cookie cutter housing, the odd strip mall and commercial areas provide suburbanites with simple nourishment. In these establishments, chain restaurants and small mom and pop Asian eateries prevail. Our family, having eschewed the visitation of most […]

Summer Weekend Freshness – Canada Day Long Weekend

Canada Day long weekend seems to have snuck up on me. I guess I’ve been a bit distracted by what’s going on around me, here in Calgary. As they say though, the show must go on. I’m always really happy when I can look in my fridge and find things that I can ‘use up’ […]

Lemon Rosemary Shortbread

After a very dry first half of winter an entire foot of snow fell all day yesterday and over night. While I am somewhat relieved that we will have a ‘white Christmas’ after all…there will always be a part of me that becomes annoyed at each snowfall. Actually it wouldn’t be too bad if no […]

Christmas Eve Tourtière

In our family, there has to be Tourtière at Christmas time. It’s one of those traditions that everyone loves and expects after church on Christmas Eve. If we’re visiting my parents at the farm, church is a 45 minute drive either way so we usually begin eating the Tourtière, along with many other appetizers and […]

Instant Pot Hungarian Chicken Paprikash on Nokedli

I grew up with a Hungarian grandmother. A word of warning; don’t be expecting a warm and fuzzy ‘awww you learned this recipe by cooking in your grandmother’s warm cozy kitchen’ sort of blog post because that’s not how this story starts out. She was born in Canada and as such, followed her family’s preference […]

Around the World in Twelve Plates – Peru

August has flown by in a heartbeat. I’m trying to savour these last summer moments and already dreading the cold days of winter. Fortunately we have a bit of a buffer season and I am hoping we have a nice, long drawn out Autumn with sunny, crisp days and cold nights. Just enough to throw […]

Alberta Open Farm Days – A Visit to Stettler County

This past weekend I was invited to tour several farms in Stettler County, Alberta during Alberta Open Farm Days (August 19 & 20) as a guest of Destination Stettler. As I battled the city rush hour traffic heading north out of Calgary, I focused on the blue sky dotted with fluffy white clouds and knew that […]

The Friday Flame

One day we went to Maui and we never really came back. Our bodies are located in Calgary but our minds (and spirits) reside beside the ocean watching the sun go down as palms sway in the breeze. The funny thing is Maui would never have entered my mind as a travel destination but our […]

Pistachio Cream and Mini Egg Babka

There are people that describe having an intense urge to travel, to explore the world and embrace its uniqueness as having ‘wanderlust’ or ‘itchy feet’. I am most definitely one of those people, especially when we haven’t even been out of the city in months. I have an incredible urge to just get in my […]
