Mink Chocolates and the Best Hot Chocolate I Found So Far

By | April 12th, 2018|Food, Travel|

I don’t know what to tell you. Maybe it was the way the sun was shining that first time I visited. Or, it was the way the wet, cold snow pelted my face on my second visit. It could have been the way the rich, dark chocolate attacked my senses and my taste buds before [...]

Hot Chocolate Festival in Vancouver & All Year Treat Enjoyment

By | February 21st, 2018|Events, Food, Lifestyle, Travel|

I don’t drink coffee or tea so my warm drink of choice, is the comforting hot chocolate. Actually, I feel I am a bit of a hot chocolate connoisseur really. I love both a hot, rich, chocolatey drink that isn’t too sweet and I also love a hot, creamy, sweet chocolate drink. I also enjoy [...]

Why some should quit coffee

By | August 7th, 2017|Food, Lifestyle|

Eliminating—or, significantly reducing—caffeinated coffee from your diet can dramatically improve symptoms such as dehydration, IBS, leaky gut, acne, hormonal imbalance, depression, anxiety, foggy brain, joint pain, poor circulation, energy levels, adrenal fatigue, to name a few. Why on earth should we give up coffee? With the rise in many chronic and debilitating illnesses, even autoimmune [...]

I have LOVED grilled cheese sandwiches my entire life. I actually have two favourites in Vancouver that are my go to when I really need a fix.

Amsterdam – Where The 2016 European Museum Tour Began

By | June 5th, 2017|Activities, Fashion, Food, Travel|

One day at work I opened my emails, and there was a beaming one (maybe it was just beaming in my memory). It was from WestJet, offering a new route to London, England. There was also an amazing introductory sale price that worked out to be about $700.00 return after everything was calculated, for the [...]

My Two Day Road Trip to the Daintree Rainforest from Cairns

By | April 26th, 2017|Activities, Food, Travel|

First of all, let me give everyone a necessary piece of advice. Cairns is a tourist city. Everyone rents cars in Cairns. Don’t wait till you arrive to rent one, book it in advance. I had booked myself a place to stay in the Daintree Rainforest which is only accessible via car. I waited till [...]

Trying out the SodaStream machine not only allowed me the convenience of fizzy water whenever I wanted it in the comfort of my own home, it also helped curb my sugar cravings when I gave up sugar & sweeteners. When I was told by my Naturopath that, for my health, I had to cut sugar [...]

Melbourne – Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate, a few things, and oh yah, Transportation

By | March 18th, 2017|Food, Travel|

Melbourne is a big city that has history, art, shopping, food, architecture, culture, coffee and chocolate. The one thing that stood out for me walking around Melbourne is the fact that there is so much chocolate. So very much chocolate. I’m not normally a big chocolate fan but even I fell into the rabbit hole [...]

I’m not going to lie to you. I just ate almost half the container of this Roasted Garlic and Dill Hanes Hummus (click here for the website) with potato chips. It was amazing! And I didn’t even feel like I was eating a healthy form of junk food, it was just so very good! I [...]

By | November 27th, 2016|Food|

I’m pretty sure if you have lived in North Burnaby for any length of time, or even in other parts of the Lower Mainland, you have heard of The Valley Bakery (check out their web-site here). It was even in the locally shot VIFF movie I attended (and reviewed here) called Marrying the Family. If [...]
