Buscopan® Helps Keep Your Tummy Happy!

If you know me well, you’ll know that I enjoy spending time with family, sharing food with friends and making wonderful memories with those I love. No matter the season, I always try to connect with the people who matter most to me. Unfortunately, that also means my schedule is often super busy! They're jammed packed with family reunions and gatherings with friends often accompanied by rich, delicious food – which can lead to stress and very often gastrointestinal issues such as abdominal … [Read more...]

St. Patrick’s Day is a week from today! It's a fun occasion when just about everyone you know will proclaim to either actually being Irish, or wishing they were Irish.

Together we have come up with is a fabulous round-up of 27 … [Read more...]

Traditional Roast Turkey with Apricot & Pecan Stuffing

The upcoming holiday season is by far, my favourite time of the year. And, I think the word "season" describes it perfectly, because the holidays are so much more than just a single day. This seems the only time of the year that we all share a joint purpose. It’s like some unwritten contract that we have all signed, promising to be more charitable, appreciative, tolerant and most of all, nicer to each other. It’s funny, but when I think about the holidays, my thoughts are never about gifts, … [Read more...]

When repeated often enough, it’s amazing how even the smallest premise can become legendary. I hope you find at least some of  these as surprising as I did. Myth #1 Saint Patrick was Irish.

Is it Christmas or Excess? Try the Want-Need-Wear-Read Philosophy of Gift Giving

Christmas has always been, by far, my favourite time of the year. The Christmas “season”, yes, aptly named because it’s far more than just a single day, is the only time of year we all share a joint purpose. It’s like some unwritten contract that we have all have signed, promising to be more charitable, appreciative, tolerant and most of all, nicer to each other. It’s funny, but when I think about Christmas, my thoughts are never about gifts, either given or received. My memories always … [Read more...]

How to Make Peanut Butter Balls

For as long as I can remember, Peanut Butter Balls have been a Christmas tradition in our home. We always make them, often a double or triple batch. Christmas just wouldn't seem the same without them. Back when I was first married, every December, I would spend hours pouring over recipe books and magazines in search of the perfect holiday treats. Then, my mom and I would get together a couple of days before Christmas for an epic, daylong baking session. By the end of the day, we would be very … [Read more...]
