I’m still here! Really….I am…

Well hello there! It’s been a while since I have posted anything hasn’t it? Life has been quite crazy lately. I’ve been volunteering my time with a group that supports local charities here in town and there is just less than two months left of my “reign”. I’ve also been “cooking” up a little baby bump. With … Continue reading

Fireworks show – 100th anniversary of the Calgary Stampede

For the 100th anniversary of the Calgary Stampede, our city did something a little special. In addition to doing the nightly fireworks on the grounds, the powers that be decided to change it up by putting on a fireworks show from each of the four quadrants of our city (choreographed to music). These special shows occurred on the Friday, … Continue reading

Operation “eat at home…” in full swing

I’m not going to lie…it’s been a rough couple of months. With only one income coming in right now, DH and I have been (for the most part) eating our way through the items in our freezer, fridge and pantry. It’s actually quite amazing that you can still create healthy and delicious meals even as you are standing … Continue reading

Excuses, Excuses…

I apologize for not posting anything this past month. It’s been insanely busy (I know, excuses…excuses). I really did have every intention of posting some delicious recipes, but life got in the way. Here is a photo of the northern lights in my area about two weeks ago.

Brrr….it’s Winter!

‘Nuf said. This guy Vinny seems like a comedian. I’m sure that there are a few people in town who would like to meet him.The photos are taken about 9 months apart from my building. Love the fact that he spaced out the letters so nicely, and gave up a couple of his lunch hours to do … Continue reading

Cute is everywhere!

I saw this the last time I was out grabbing a quick bite to eat. Sorry about the lighting….but it’s so cute! (FYI – I agree with Luke, the Wild Boar burger was “dulishis”)

A Long Lost Commercial…Athletes in Motion: Slide Show

I have been looking for a copy of this video for a while now, so it was a wonderful surprise to finally find it online. Last year, before the Vancouver 2010 olympics, I had the amazing opportunity to work with a couple of dear friends (Don and Bryon) on this short commercial funded by Bravo!FACT. … Continue reading

Yoga….for wine lovers (from Harold’s Planet)

This is just awesome! The perfect solution for a yogi-foodie. I wonder if anyone has tried doing this yet? P.S. The burp at the end is priceless 🙂

Things that drive me crazy…AKA ‘Rules of my humble abode’

My kitchen may be tiny, but this small 10×10 space is my own personal sanctuary. It also happens to be the one place where I always seem to end up in when I need to reflect and think. Some people may think it’s weird, but it’s the sole reason I do not own a garlic press. Therapy to me, is when I can finely mince three … Continue reading

Blast from the past…

A long, long time ago* – back when I was just a summer student working at my very first job in the oil and gas field…I met my girlfriend Carol. We use to chat, sing and eat a lot of instant ramen noodles / popcorn from the vending machine at work over late nights doing what everyone … Continue reading
