Summertime Sunday Dinner: Applewood Smoked Rotisserie Prime Rib Roast!
In my last post about Peruvian Rotisserie Chicken, I wrote about all of the things that had been going on in our life in the preceding months, adding that it was time to settle back to the business of 'normal' life. Little did I know at the time that life still had a few more doozie curve balls to throw our way. After 8 weeks of renovations, my parents moved into the brand spanking new above-ground in-law suite in our beautiful new (to us) home on June 5th. Two weeks later, m
Uncomplicated Date Night Greek Grilled Shrimp Skewers
Well, we've finally found a house that took our breath away the moment we walked in through the front door, made a bid, had it accepted and have jumped through the financing and home inspection hoops. All that is left now is to wait for the legal guys to get all the ducks in a row and, with any luck at all, we will be in our new home in time to celebrate our First Anniversary, (which is also the Ides of March...but most importantly, our First Anniversary!).

Warming Up Winter With Slow Cooker Maple Bourbon BBQ Ribs!
Last week, I was as sick of January as I had ever been. It's the Mount Everest of all of the months; a constant, uphill battle against frigidly cold days marked with less than 8 hours of daylight.

Never mind that it's only February....February is the shortest of all months which is some small consolation. When you live in Canada, you have two choices: let y
The 4th of July - A Celebration of Independence, A Celebration of Food!!

But who wants to spend the day toiling in the kitchen when they could be out celebrating and socializing along with everyone else? Not me, that's for sure, and I LOVE to cook! But not to worry my American friends and family....I've got you cove
Grillin' It Up for Canada Day!!
Already, July 1st is upon us - where did June go? While we did have some sunshine and I'd say 5 days of actual warm weather, the rest of the time it was either foggy, or the air was particular cool due to the gigantic ice bergs that were surrounding our island. But alas, hope always springs eternal for us islanders and we are now being rewarded with wall to wall sunshine and temperatures in the mid to high 20's (celsius, which for my American friends and families, that conve
