Nova Star Cruises – The Return of Ferry Service Between Portland, Maine & Yarmouth, Nova Scotia (1 of 2)

Nova Star Cruises Ferry 5

Holy shamoly… I’m going through our vacation photos and realizing it’s going to take more than one post to talk about our experience on the new Nova Star Cruises ferry service between Yarmouth, Nova Scotia and Portland, Maine. So for now I want to talk about our overall experience on the way over to Maine, […]

CAASCO Bike-Assist App – Roadtrips & More

Keji 2008 048

We’ve had a CAA membership in the past, but since becoming members again earlier this year and then becoming an Ambassador for CAA South Central Ontario (CAASCO), I’ve really taken the time to find out what my member benefits are besides getting a boost when one of us leaves the dome light on. One of […]

First Stop, Yarmouth – Rodd Grand Yarmouth Hotel

Rodd Grand Yarmouth Hotel

We are wringing every last drop of summer out of 2014 and this time we are off to Maine and Massachusetts. I was really pleased when I heard that ferry service was being restored this summer between Yarmouth, Nova Scotia and Portland, Maine after a five year hiatus. As much as both Atlantic Canada and […]

Blueberry Cobbler

Blueberry Cobbler 2

I’ve crisped, crumbled, buckled and even grunted… but this is the first time I’ve ever cobbled. Although it can vary from region to region, a Cobbler is a fruit or savoury filling topped with a baked layer of something, whether it be pastry, cake or biscuit. My version is kind of cakey, but because it […]

FoodSaver 2-in-1 Vacuum Sealing System Review & Giveaway

FoodSaver New vs Old

Since reviewing my first FoodSaver System in 2012, I’ve been a loyal user and brag about it to friends constantly. So when I was contacted to see if I would review the newest FoodSaver model I had to take a while to think about it… I didn’t think I would benefit from a newer model, […]

Karma Wellness Water – Push Good Karma Contest

Karma Wellness Water

Last week on the way home from Aqua Zumba, I had to stop at our local market to buy milk. On my way to the cash, thirst took over and even though I was 2 minutes from home, I needed to grab something. I spotted Karma Wellness Water and recognized the name from a press […]

It’s Nice That You Think I Have All the Answers, but…

Minute Maid Fruit Salad Pops

Chelsea turned five at the end of May. If there is something that a parent of a 4 or 5 year old knows for sure it is that these kiddos are curious.  I saw somewhere online that on average, a 4 year old asks 400 questions a day… and let’s just say, my child is […]

This summer a few new President’s Choice products made their way into my kitchen and I have been having fun with all of them. The first thing we tried was the PC Memories of Alabama Creamy Barbecue Sauce. I had never heard of such a thing and needed to know more. A quick Google search […]

Steamed Cod Cheek Parcels (on the Grill)

Curry Cod Cheeks

A month or two ago, Hubs came home from work and had been gifted some fresh cod cheeks. I know I should have stopped and cooked them right then because they were so fresh, but I chickened out and threw them in the freezer. Cod cheeks aren’t code for something else, it’s literally the cheek […]

Moncton’s Magnetic Hill – Illusion, Zoo & Magic Mountain

Magnetic Hill Zoo Collage

Last summer we took our first trip to Magic Mountain, Moncton’s water park in the Magnetic Hill area. When we were leaving, I wanted to venture over to Magnetic Hill to check it out, but somehow missed the turn off. Growing up, I always wanted Dad to show me what it was all about, but […]
