December 29th, 2014 | Recipes

I hope you all had a very happy holiday, I sure did! We spent Christmas at my moms lake house (where there is no phone or cell service) it was so peaceful to be unplugged, (maybe peaceful isn’t the word, there was 30 people there) a lot of fun had though! I’m still in Holiday […]

We love hot chocolate around here, most often with the typical marshmallow topping, but every once in a while I go a little crazy and try something new… I think we found a winner!

I can’t resist anything with peanut butter, throw in a little chocolate and I’m instantly sold! I have to be honest,  most cheesecake recipes make me […]

Delicious Apple Cider punch

Fall is in the air, Thanksgiving weekend is here (this side of the border anyhow)! I love everything about this holiday… really how can you go wrong with turkey and all the fixings. But what I love most about the holidays is time spent with family. Whether it is around a punch bowl, snuggled up […]

Chocolate Chip Crunch Cookies

September 30th, 2014 | Recipes

We love cookies and I can not lie. My husband mainly wears the cookie captain cap, I swear I can bake a batch and they are gone before I can turn around. I’ve been trying hard to have a fresh batch in the cookie jar so Mr. Fynes, the kiddos have some for their lunch box. […]

Popsicles made easy with PC Watermelon Lemon Soda- So yummy and refreshing! #PCSummer

I’ve had the craziest week, hence the lack of blog work. Hurricane Arthur hit our community quite hard and left us with no power for 4 days. Not only no power, but my computer took a hit, as well as our fridge and freezer. Thankfully our home didn’t have any major damage on the outside, and my mom […]

Delicious scallop burger recipe

Yesterday was Canada Day and although we don’t go all out to the extent that Americans do for July 4th, we certainly know how to celebrate our nation and show our pride. Mainly with a beer in hand, but we also had a hearty feed of pancakes drizzled with local Maple Syrup, and ended the […]

I’m a long time crouton lover, I love anything in salad that gives a big crunch. However, I don’t like the break your tooth crunch you get from some store boughten croutons. While there is no way to get around having ‘healthy’ croutons, some salads just need them, and if you’re going to have them you […]

Chalkboard Birthday Photo back-drop

Wow, where does time go? My little guy turned 3, I feel like it was yesterday that we brought him home from the hospital. I wish we had similar weather to when he was born. It was a beautiful hot summer day, instead we got a cold 10 degree day, and had to stay inside for most of […]

The most delicious Caesar drink recipe

The title of this post may have you scratching your head if you’re a fellow Canuck, because we all know a Bloody Mary is NOT a Caesar. As you all know I recently came back from a state side trip. I’m not much of a drinker, but when I’m wearing my vacation shoes I like to […]

Perfect melted cheese #HeavenlyMelt

Growing up, onions were an essential in our house; you might even say a staple dish. My Dad can make the meanest onion sandwich you’ve ever tasted, and what’s a piece of steak without a buttery dripping mushroom and onion side! I’ve never lost the love for them, and even find most dishes blah without. […]

Cheese board display

I’m sure you can imagine with a catering business how many cheese boards I put together in the run of a year. When you hand over a set of sharp knives to 200 people each week to have a hack at your precious display boards, I’m sure you can picture the outcome. At the end […]
