“Nutcracker” Holiday Cocktail

  Happy Holidays Everyone!!   We are feeling festive here and getting pumped for New Years Eve with our “Nutcracker” holiday cocktail.    This drink is a little bit sweet, a little bit nutty, and a little bit potent.  And truth be told, after our attempts to photograph it, we were ready for some booze! Exactly […]

Christmas DIY Lighted Copper Joy Sign

  Eek, we are getting so close to Christmas.  Anyone else panicking slightly?  I somehow always feel like I will never get everything done in time.  Not that it’s that big of a deal if I don’t, but I do like to have my house fully decorated.  Right now there are just odd bits decorated […]

Oysters with Orange Malt Mignonette

  Oysters are one of my favourite special occasion foods.   And you can finally get them in Newfoundland (Sobeys and Dominion both carry them)!! Which is crazy that it took so long – they literally grow just a province over.   The Atlantic season is just about over now, but there’s always the west coast, so […]

Green Eggnog Smoothie Bowl

Hey guys! It’s less than a month before Christmas!!!  Time for festive everything, including this eggnog smoothie bowl!! So…I had never actually tried a smoothie bowl before today because, well I am not a huge fan of smoothies (blasphemy I know).  It just seemed like lot of effort for something I don’t really love to […]

The Fogo Island Inn – A Newfoundlander’s Experience

  Ever since the Fogo Island Inn opened it’s doors to the public back in 2013, I’ve dreamed of staying there.  The building and interior design are stunning, and the social and economic values of the Inn are to be admired.  I hoped one day I’d stay at the inn, I just didn’t think it’d […]

Beet and Orange Salad with Mint Dressing

  Folks, this beet and orange salad is crisp, fresh, and looks so pretty <3!     Oh Fall…your cool brisk air chills us to the bone.   We definitely crave comfort food this time of the year, it’s our tasty attempt at trying to warm up!  But, sometimes after a few heavy meals we need […]

Crab Mac and Cheese

Who says crab mac and cheese is only good when crab is in season? Not this girl! This stuff is soooo good you’ll be making it all winter.

Caramel Apple Granola

Caramel Apple Granola.  Need I say more?  This is a fantastic granola, and that’s coming from someone who doesn’t eat granola much.  But I think that’s about to change.

Halloween Mediterranean Pasta Salad

  This spooktacular side dish is a fun Halloweenish-themed salad with classic Mediterranean flavours.     The black and white pasta is tuxedo orzo – a President’s Choice black label product – but if you can’t find it, any plain orzo will do.  We used kalamata olives, which are more purple than black, because we […]
