A California Love Story & Lunch with Joel Peterson of Ravenswood Wine

Oh, California, how I love you. I love your laid-back way of life, your beautiful coast, and all of that fresh, delicious food you’ve got goin’ on {get in my belly!}. Also, the wine. Of course, the wine! Cali, my love, you boast some of the tastiest new world wine out there, and it’s a […]


Tempting your Taste Buds with Three Days in Kelowna: Day Three

Our third and last day was a short one, but delicious nonetheless. If you’re lucky enough to be in the area for a few days, I’d definitely suggest finishing it up with these great spots {and then take a nap at the beach, if you have the time}. First up: Arlo’s Honey Farm. Not only […]


Tempting your Taste Buds with Three Days in Kelowna: Day Two

Boy, oh boy. I hope your belly has had a chance to relax from day one in Kelowna, because day two is a busy {and tasty!} one. First up, the Kelowna Farmers’ and Crafters’ Market. I apologize for all of the photos, evidently I went a little camera crazy. It’s hard not to, though, because […]


Tempting your Taste Buds with Three Days in Kelowna: Day One

I was in Kelowna a couple of weeks ago, you know. Actually, I’ve spent quite a bit of time there lately, and am heading there again in a couple of days – but the trip I’m taking about was with a lovely little group of FBC members, a trip we were so lucky to be […]


Mission’s New Pizza Joint: Bocce

Right. Because all this city needed was another pizza joint. Seriously. No sarcasm {for once}. I know there’s a ton of ‘em, and everyone has their favourite, but there’s absolutely no harm in tossing another venue into the ring. After all, it’s just more pizza for our bellies, and another restaurant to go to and […]


Winery Adventures & an Eat In Eat Out Teaser

Oh, summer. You sure have a way of getting away from me. It’s like one minute I was heading to the Magdalen Islands on an adventure {one that I still can’t wait to share with you!} and the next thing I knew, it was August. It’s been a busy couple of months; C and I […]


The 2013 Banff Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival: a Delicious Night in the Rockies

Every year, the Banff Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival rolls into the stunning Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, showcasing some of the best restaurants, the tastiest local {and not so local} beverages, and – of course – the unmistakable hospitality of the people of Banff. I had the pleasure of attending again this year, and […]


Back to Normal & a Recipe for Caprese-Inspired Linguini

So that day came and went; we visited with family and friends, ate amazing food, and danced until we could dance no longer. Now, it’s back to real life. I’m still getting back into the groove of things, so until life is back to normal, we’re eating simply. There’s no time for frivolous foods – […]


Eat Alberta: In Pictures

From artisan pasta making to mushroom foraging, the sessions at Edmonton’s Eat Alberta event on April 15th covered just about everything a food-lover could desire. Keep reading for a small recap of the day, photos, and more information on the presenters. KEYNOTE The day began with a talk titled, Life on the Back 40. The […]


What an Escape: a Grape Escape!

Give me food and wine {or beer, or spirits…}, and I’ll be a happy girl. Yes, it’s that simple. When my belly is full and I have a drink in hand, I tend to not have a care in the world. You should try it… it works. So on Saturday, March 17, when I had […]
