Wendy’s Chicken Sandwich

In my continuing research into chicken sandwiches, I decided to try out the Wendy’s chicken sandwich. It didn’t hurt that a page of coupons recently arrived at my house for Wendy’s burgers, wraps, salads, and sandwiches! The Wendy’s coupons have a “2-can-dine-for $13.99” deal for two spicy, grilled or homestyle chicken sandwich combos. We oped […]

Apple Juice in the Vitamix

I’ve had a Vitamix “whole food processor” for about 20 years now and while I don’t use it all that often anymore, when I do use it, the results are usually pretty much 100% tasty. This weekend just gone, I was watching Let it Mix on Instagram make apple juice on with her Vitamix and […]

Hi Five Chicken Burger

I had a hankering for a chicken sandwich so I swung by Hi Five Chicken on the Burnaby/New West border just in tine to grab their lunch special; a Home Style Spicy Sandwich with a side of wedge cut fries. Seeing as I knew that I would more than likely have to share my chicken […]

Baking Bread on an Open Fire

While out of town on the Family Day weekend, my daughter and I filmed a short video of us baking a loaf of bread in a cast iron Dutch oven, over an open fire. My daughter loves being the camera operator and directing how the video “unfolds”. I quite enjoy her directorial skills! And the […]

Enjoy National Pizza Day

The following post is sponsored by National Today and Top Agency. As with all content on this blog, all content, ideas, and opinions are my own. February 9th is National Pizza Day and that got me thinking; is there any food as perfect as pizza? Pizza. Basically bread, tomato paste or sauce, veggies, sometimes meat, […]

Kozak Ukrainian Eatery

The best thing to do on a cold and and rainy afternoon after you have just discovered that the last four hours of work you have done on a computer has not saved – go for a bowl of soup. Yesterday I was writing report cards – every teacher’s favourite way to while away the […]

Brunch at Fort Langley’s Blacksmith Bakery

Daughter and I were traveling through the Fraser Valley this weekend and feeling sad about the transition from the beautiful, and completely inconvenient snow to the more typical west coast grey rainy days so we decided to stop in Fort Langley at Blacksmith Bakery for a little brunch break. I started my brunch with an […]

Fire Pizza on Commercial Drive

A few weeks ago the kids and I were on our way into Vancouver and we needed a snack. And knowing that Fire Pizza offers the “Best Pizza on the Drive”, really was there anything other than stopping for pizza for a snack? We stopped at Fire Pizza – a counter serve pizza nook located […]
