Bill Granger’s Banana Butterscotch

I can’t master the art of banana consumption in our house. Well, we know how to eat them, but I haven’t yet perfected the art of knowing just how many to buy. We either have too many, or not enough. Luella has just started to love bananas and will jam a whole one into her…

Little Moments App: Let’s talk Android!

Hello! Today I wanted to share a little bit about a non-iPhone/iPad version of the Little Moments App, and where my thinking is at with it all. I get asked daily about the Android/Windows version, so it makes sense to address it. This is long. Pour a cup of tea {or vodka} and consume it…

Keeping it local: Monty’s Strawberries

One of the hardest things of adjusting to our new life up here was finding all our new places to eat, visit and buy food from. I know it’s not a big deal, but life’s too short for bad food. It’s also an exciting thing about living in a new place, happening across new places….

I quit today.

I totally quit today. I’m done with it. I’ve written this post seven times over and deleted it {because it’s filled with first world problems and I know someone will probably take offense to it}. I filled the page with words or rants at all the things I’m cranky at. I’m cranky because it’s school…

Grandma’s yummy no-bake chocolate slice

My grandma was a great baker. She made the most delicious peanut butter cookies and pumpkin scones. I’d love to say that this recipe is hers, but I don’t even know which grandma owns this one. My neighbour emailed it to me with the title ‘Grandma’s no-bake slice’ so I’m not sure which grandma made…
