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 […]

Pear & Walnut Vinaigrette Collage

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 […]

The Delta Beausejour and Moncton’s Whoa Canada! Celebrations

Delta Beausejour 3

Sometimes when you are picking a hotel, it all comes down to location, location, location. The Nolans, along with the Attwaters and the MacNeils all descended on Moncton for Canada Day and the Delta Beausejour was the perfect location for all of us. The Delta Beausejour is found in the heart of Downtown Moncton and […]

Crunchy Chicken Satay Strips / Peanut Butter Cheerios Giveaway

Crunchy Chicken Satay Strips 1 Peanut Butter Cheerios

Last year, Peanut Butter Cheerios were introduced to Canada and we Canucks were such fans that now they have returned… this time to stay! I’ve always been a Honey Nut Cheerios Fan, but the peanut butter variety has taken over top spot on my Cheerios hierarchy. The peanut butter flavour is so delicious and it […]

Next Stop: Mmm… is for Mommy (A Blog Tour)

Blog Post

One thing I have never, ever done is posted one of those Facebook statuses that are supposed to show how much I really, really care about a cause (and am heartless if I don’t). I’ve never posted the colour of my underwear, nor have I had a giraffe as a profile photo. I just can’t do […]

Panna Cotta and a #SizzlingSummer Giveaway

Panna Cotta

I found out a couple of years ago that despite my dislike of Jell-o (unless it’s a shooter), I love Panna Cotta… which, if you don’t know, is basically Jell-o in it’s dairy form). Panna Cotta makes the perfect dessert for hot summer days when served with fresh berries. It also is so freaking simple […]
