Embracing winter – Stay active this winter by snowshoeing

  Well, we’re almost halfway through January already.  For a province that spends half the year in a frozen state, we sure do like to complain about it.  Maybe we have a right to, but we’ve decided not to dwell on the negative and instead we’re embracing the positive.  So today we’re going to share […]

Taiwanese Coconut Milk Tea

  Brrrr!!  It’s so cold outside.   We’re froze ta det!  And what better way to warm yourself up than a cup of Taiwanese coconut milk tea?   It’s slightly sweet, a bit fragrant, and a lot cozy.   Truly though, we’ve been having some stormy weather for the past few weeks and it just won’t let […]
