How to Make Pesto


Making your own basil pesto is very easy and the taste is beyond anything you will ever find in a jar.  Don't get me wrong, I don't always have fresh pesto on hand and have used the jarred type on many occasions.  It tastes good and does the job, but it is NOT homemade!  Homemade pesto is so delicious and fresh tasting.  Once you have made your own, you won't want to use jarred again. If you grow basil or have access to big bunches from a farmers market or a friends garden,  I highly … [Read more...]

Keurig 2.0

By now I'm sure many of you know that I am a huge fan of coffee.   Honestly, some days I drink so much coffee I am fairly certain it is coursing through my veins!  You can imagine my delight then, when over these past several weeks I have received little teaser packages from Keurig Canada. This and other little teasers were offering me a little taste of what to expect with the release of the next generation of Keurig brewing systems, the 2.0. Then, a couple of weeks ago, I opened the … [Read more...]

The Stork

Having children is one of the greatest joys in my life.   I was fortunate in being able to conceive easily, however,  that is not true for many couples. Did you know: one in six Canadians struggles with infertility, yet many feel alone because their friends and family had no problem conceiving their children. Of the couples who do battle infertility, only 15% can afford IVF treatments and other assisted reproductive technologies. I am excited about a new and innovative fertility … [Read more...]

Share The Love: 7 Card Challenge

Share The Love: 7 Card Challenge ~ I really love technology, just ask anyone! When I think back twenty or thirty years I am astounded by the changes modern technology has made to our lives. Mostly good changes...and arguably,  some maybe not so good! Many of us now seem to spend our waking lives glued to our laptops and iPhones; we're checking our "virtual" mail, Facebook, Blogs, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google+ and the list continues.  The only things that seem to come in the "actual" … [Read more...]

I think it is safe to say, most of us are very familiar with the much-loved, classic board game, Monopoly.  I remember spending hours playing it when I was a kid and I in turn, have played it countless times with my children.  In our house, there was always a big discussion over who got what token and who got to be the banker! Did you know there was a new Monopoly in town? That's right, My Monopoly is a fun twist on the classic board game! What's the twist?  My Monopoly is the … [Read more...]

Cake Mix Cookies

Cake Mix Cookies

These are the easiest and simplest cookies you will ever bake! They taste like you have slaved in the kitchen over a hot stove all afternoon.  Honestly, you may as well throw a bit of flour and sugar around the kitchen, because no one will believe you made these Cake Mix Cookies  so quickly! I used to make these all the time when my kids were little, but I forgot about them and hadn't baked them in years.  I was flipping through my big ziplock bag of recipes (really, that is where I keep many … [Read more...]

The Stork Conception Aid is coming to Canada! #TheStorkisComing

The Stork

Having children is one of the greatest joys in my life.   I was fortunate in being able to conceive with no problem at all. Unfortunately, that is not true for many couples.  I can only image the heartache that would come with trying for years to conceive. There are options available to increase your chances of conceiving, but many are very expensive and out of the reach of a lot of couples. Then along came The Stork! The Stork, which is NEW to Canada, will be available exclusively … [Read more...]
