On September 2, hubby and I decided to take the ferry across to Toronto Island with our bikes. It was such a fantastic, sunny day. I haven’t been to the Island in over a decade, so I didn’t even recognize the place. Biking on the island is such a lovely experience, even though there are […]

Hubby had planned a fun weekend getaway, which involved cycling, hiking, wine tasting, and delicious food. Ontario has so many lovely places – we went to Jordon. With our car packed, we made our way to our lunch stop in the town of Winona. The place was Memphis Fire BBQ. Hubby had seen this restaurant […]
Look at the size of this one! It’s bigger than my hand! When I cut it off the vine, I could feel the heft, so I couldn’t resist weighing it. In case you cannot imagine the size without a comparison, here is a photo of the beast with a cherry tomato.

Earlier this week, I made gluten-free pizza. I liked it, but next time, I am going to reduce the sugar as it has a bit too much sweetness. It asks for a total of 3 Tbsp, so next time I may cut it to 1-1.5 Tbsp. Other than that, I didn’t mind the texture, which […]
Our fridge is full of delicious, juicy and sweet Red Haven peaches from Cherry Avenue Farms. Lunch was in NOTL, at Treadwell Farm to Table Cuisine. Minus the flies, it was a nice lunch spot. Hubby and I shared 2 starters. The Housemade and Local Charcuterie ($23) was ok. I’ve had better, but there was […]
On July 24, I had mentioned my Shishito peppers, provided a couple photos of the peppers on the plant, and added some links that described the flavour profile and how to cook with them. In the photo above, I’ve harvested them. The Shishitos are the green peppers. If I leave them on longer, they will […]
What are the chances?! I was craving some seafood, specifically fish, and as we passed by Domani Restaurant, I remembered the arctic char dish I had, so I walked in and told the server that the last time I was there (last year), I had the most wonderful arctic char dish, and could she please […]
Last night I made stuffed peppers, using as many ingredients from my garden as possible. I have organic, gluten-free quinoa in my cupboard, though until recently, I didn’t care much about gluten. Gluten is a protein composite found in foods processed from wheat and related grain species, including barley and rye. Gluten gives elasticity to dough, […]
Look what is here for a limited time!

Sonya emailed me in the morning and asked me if hubby and I wanted to come along on an Art Spin ride, which John described as, “it’s spectacular.” Those 2 words made Nelson curious. When I showed up at MacGregor Park, I was in awe. I was not expecting so many riders. Cool factor #1: […]
