Baking Bread Over A Fire

I recently bought a new cast iron Dutch Oven. It was on sale on Amazon for $35 (nope, I’m not sponsored by Amazon nor am I an Amazon affiliate) but I couldn’t resist buying it. While I was at the cabin, I figured it was a good opportunity to use the Dutch oven in an […]

Don Cherry Gets Fired

If someone opens a conversation with a statement that sounds anything like, “I don’t want to sound like a racist, but you know Don Cherry kind of…” I typically cut them off as quickly as I can and say, “If you don’t want to sound like a racist, you really should stop talking at this […]

Big Red’s Poutine Food Truck

I’ve been following the Instagram feed from the food truck called Big Red’s Poutine on social media for months now.

The EASIEST No Knead Bread. Ever.

You may have noticed that I haven’t posted much on here over the last two weeks. The truth is I’ve been battling some significant personal issues during that time. Too many sleepless nights. However, this too shall pass and I (we) will be okay. But let’s talk about something that makes me smile – making […]

Fade Friday #23

Fade Friday Day #23 in my Brave Star Selvage denims. The 21.5 ounce denim is really beginning to soften up. However, I put on a pair of my Levi 501s this week and it was a reality check to feel just how light the 501s feel compared to my Brave Stars! This week I took […]
