Raincoast – Don’t Get Caught!

My husband and I both enjoy young adult books. There’s something fun about reading books that are focussed more on kids and what kids do! My latest read is no exception! It’s called “Don’t Get Caught”, is the first book that Kurt Dinan has written, and reminds me a lot of the many great books […]

Zoku Quick Pop Maker!

What kid doesn’t love popsicles? There’s just so much fun involved in eating something that melts before you’re done, something that comes in so many flavors, something that can drip down your arm, something that *must* be eaten when it’s 30 above out, and something that says Summer Holidays! What’s not to like about popsicles!? […]

Raincoast – Cut Flower Garden!

I’ve always loved flowers. Everything from the colourful petunia, to the lovely peony, to the exotic colombine. We took produce to a farmers’ market for a couple years and one thing I would loved to have taken was bouquets of flowers grown on my farm. However, we were having kids at that point and life […]

Bacon. Some say it’s good for us, some say it’s not. My opinion is that animal fats are very healthy for us and we need them in our diet and my firmest belief is “everything in moderation”. So you better believe I’m going to enjoy my bacon! Oh, and now that I cook it in […]
