Me Love Cookie in a Jar!

I know it’s old news that big, blue, huggable Cookie Monster recently declared that “Cookies are a Sometimes Food” but I still say this just isn’t right! Cookies should be enjoyed wherever, and whenever! Now that that’s out of the way…I’d like to share what is in my opinion *the best* little cookie book going! […]

Move Over Elaine Benes!

After dinner tonight, Liam was a bit on the fussy side. I suggested to my husband that he put on some music, as Liam might enjoy some “dancing” time. I am still not sure if what he does constitutes dancing, but I guess for a little one his age it is as close as you […]

You Are Not Alone!

After getting several e-mails from friends who read my Blogpost “Wings of Terror Butterfly Conservatory” I wanted to post a follow-up with the surprising verdict! I am not alone!!! In fact, two people that I know told me they also fear butterflies, so I looked up this strange phenomenon known as “Mottephobia” which is actually […]

This is a great recipe for a yummy casserole, that is a hit at our Thanksgiving and Christmas Table. The recipe comes from my Grandmother, and it was a favorite of her friend, and former landlady, Isabel. It’s especially good served with poultry, but is a great addition to any meal. I’ve even been known […]

It’s a British Thing!

My husband and I are not known to argue over candy, however, I would put up a good fight anyday over Jelly Babies, and I imagine I would be met with equal resistance from my counterpart! I was first introduced to this delectable treat about 10 years ago. Prior to this, I had never even […]

Oh Mr. Sun, Please Shine Down On Me!

I just checked out fellow Blogger, and neighbour Kathy Siebert’s blog, as part of my usual evening routine. I was intrigued by her latest post about Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.) because at this time of the year, it seems to be a regular topic of conversation within my peer group. I will readily admit that […]

Wings of Terror Butterfly Conservatory

A few years ago on Valentine’s Day, my romantic husband decided to surprise me by taking me to the Wings of Paradise Butterfly Conservatory in Cambridge. It was only a short trip from our home, and we had never gone there before, so I welcomed what I thought was going to be a very romantic […]

Archaeology Info

Earlier today, I found myself in the midst of a discussion on religion versus evolution. While I am not prepared to go into the details of this earlier debate (I think I’d be here all night) I would like to mention an interesting web-site which I remember using during my studies at York University. This […]

Delightful Cookbook!

My neighbour told me about this great new cookbook from the authors of “Looneyspoons” and “Crazyplates.” I bought a copy of the Podleski sisters’ latest book, “Eat, Shrink and be Merry” and am just thrilled with it! The recipes are easy to follow, healthy, and the book is written in a fun, humorous style with […]

Bea in the Tub…

Why do all cats love to hang out in the bathtub? For some reason, the fresh water in their bowl isn’t good enough…instead they need to sip running water…? Another one of life’s great mysteries!  This is a photo I took tonight of my cat Beatrice, hanging out in her favorite spot.
