Storytelling with YouTube Shorts

I’ve been learning a new format of storytelling – YouTube Shorts. It seems to me that this is YouTube’s move to take market share back from that other app the kids are calling TikTok. With YouTube Shorts people can create “stories” up to a minute long and then they post/share them on YouTube Shorts. Although […]

PNE Food at the Fair

As we do every year, the kids and I went to the PNE. And of course my primary purpose is to eat all the PNE food! The first food item we tried at the PNE was the “blooming onion”. We ordered it with “the works”. A deep fried onion loaded with melted cheese, bacon bits, […]

The Northern Cafe – a Vancouver Gem

The Northern Cafe is a Vancouver gem. It is a tiny hole-in-the-wall joint that is probably the most uniquely located restaurant in all of BC. The cafe it is not officially connected to the Northern Building Supply lumberyard – other than being located in the upstairs of the Northern Building Supply lumberyard. As you can […]

Wild Flour Pizza – Welcome to the Neighbourhood

The food choices out here in the burbs are pretty solid and they satisfy nearly all of my foodie desires.

Breakfast at Wendy’s; Follow Up

I recently posted about the new Wendy’s breakfast menu and the pictures I shared were total garbage – probably a result of me touching the camera lens with a greasy finger! So of course, in the name of journalist integrity, I had to try more of the Wendy’s breakfast menu. You know, just to get […]

Seeing as I am a big time fan of the Wendy’s Baconator burger, I decided to try the new Baconator Breakfast sandwich. The Breakfast Baconator is very heavy on the bacon. And unlike some other fast […]

Venison Vs Farmed Salmon

Funny thing happened to me this weekend. A thing that made me go hmmmm… Let me back up a bit. Last fall a friend of mine who lives near the Kootenays – actually his home is in what is known as Boundary Country – the area between the Okanagon and the Kootenays gave me three […]

Brunch at Kook’s Cooks

My foodie daughter and I were hungry for some brunch but we did not want to drive too far. Thankfully there are a number of interesting places in Coquitlam that serve brunch – including the cool little gem known as Kook’s Cooks. So why is it called “Kook’s Cooks”? Because the restaurant is named after […]

Doughnut Love – Welcome to the Neighborhood

Last Friday I had a sneak peek inside Doughnut Love – a new doughnut/coffee shop and the interior of the shop is as beautiful looking as their doughnuts are beautiful tasting. Clint, the doughnut chef (is that actually a baker?) told me that the plan is to have, along with the regular doughnuts they make, […]
