Doing Things Differently

A little over eight years ago, I met Jepeto. I was 36 and in the best shape of my life. I weighed a hundred and twelve pounds, worked out regularly, ate well and – although I was a smoker – had tons of energy and felt fantastic. Eight years later, I’m 44 and haven’t worked […]

Also one of my forks but not MY fork.

For Fork’s Sake

I have a fork. I also have a slightly erratic, neurotic, obsessive, compulsive, demented mind. Not necessarily in that order. But back to my fork. Actually, to be completely accurate, I had a fork. I still, however, have a slightly erratic, neurotic, obsessive, compulsive, demented mind. And a tendency to digress. Again, back to my fork. […]

Jambalaya creole

Une Recette en Francais

Today’s prompt for 30 Minus 2 Days of Writing is ‘French’. I was actually going to write this whole paragraph in French but I’m too tired. So tired. Instead, I’ve got this fantastic homemade Jambalaya recipe to share. And it’s in French. Not only that, Jambalaya is a Creole dish that you can find in […]


Not So Heavenly Haven

Last night, myself and a few other frozen souls seeking a warm haven ducked into a Syrian cafe to thaw our toes. Turned out they were taking part in a celebration of Quebec’s famous cheesy fries and gravy delicacy and offered up a creation of their own. So even though we weren’t shown a menu […]


It’s a Cheesy New Year

Is there a better way to start off the new year than with a REALLY quick cheese review? Ok, there are probably a billion better ways to start off the new year, but due to a complete lack of ideas about what those things might be, you get a cheese review. So, what the hell […]

Even more appetizing than salmiakki, no?

Love And Candy

It was your typical love story: girl blogger 1 meets girl blogger 2, girl blogger 1 continually and shamelessly throws herself at girl blogger 2, girl blogger 2 appears to return girl blogger 1’s affections but then breaks girl blogger 1’s heart by marrying some guy. That’s right. Some guy. Who. Doesn’t. Even. Blog. Sigh. […]

Cheddar au Bordeaux Rouge

An Autumn Cheese Review

Remember when we used to eat cheese and then write a cheese review? Me too. Or maybe the question should have been: remember when we used to blog consistently? Well speaking of consistent, there’s a store nearby called La Vieille Europe that consistently has non-wallet pillaging prices (looking at you, local grocery store) on imported […]

My Favorite Food – 30 Days of Photos Day 15

It’s no secret that I have an almost unhealthy obsession with Cheeseburgers. So much so that I’ll often write “Cheeseburger” with a capital ‘C’. At the same time, I can’t say that any one food is an absolute favorite above all other foods since I love food too much to be able to choose. I […]

red boots, studs, zippers, high heels

My Favorite Food

I am occasionally participating in the 30 Days of Photographs III challenge hosted by Ziva and MikeWJ. Today’s prompt is My Favorite Food. But since Ziva and MikeWJ can’t spell favourite correctly, I’ve decided to spell food incorrectly as well. Today, we spell food S-H-O-E-S. Now walk on over to Ziva’s blog to see who […]

Campari Sour aftermath

Sour – 30 Days of Photos Day 4

Today’s prompt is Sour and it seems only natural to incorporate that into a drink. So this is… …How to Make a Campari Sour You’ll need: 1-1/2 ounces of Campari – check (a fresh bottle is preferable) 1 barspoon of simple syrup – simple syrup? How about maple syrup? And WTF is a barspoon? 1 […]

real cheeseburger

All I Wanted Was A Simple Cheeseburger

Yeah, me and cheeseburgers again. What up with burger places that insist on ruining a good thing? This isn’t a cheeseburger. It’s a stack of food that you have to dissect and then eat the individual parts separately. It’s also 30% lettuce. Now pay attention. This is a cheeseburger. Homemade, DIY, the way you ordered […]

ice cream sandwich cream soda float

Not Recommended

How can two of my favorite things, cream soda and an ice cream sandwich, come together so shitilly? Yes. Shitilly. Anyway, this didn’t work at all, but I finished it just in case the taste got better near the end, which it didn’t. In other news, the cat’s missing.

A Swag Cheese Review

So, how fed up are you of hearing about my trip to California last week? Really fed up, you say? Great! So let me tell you a little bit more about it! Yes, even though I have the gift of hearing blog people, I tend to ignore what they’re saying. In case you didn’t catch […]

Souvenirs From “Sweden”

So my co-blogger Mike went to “Sweden” and he brought me back a special gift. Can you guess what it was? Think about it. What is “Sweden” renowned for? He came by last week and brought it to me. And has been bugging me ever since – Have I tasted it? What did I think […]

Monday Afternoon Sandwich

It’s a prosciutto, arugula, tomato, Havarti with basil, mayo and mustard sandwich. On black bread. That is all.
