Over the years we have developed a series of Snowball cocktails, the most recent of which is the Gin Thuya Snowball.
I shared a photo of one and was asked how to make a Snowball, so I decided to post the full recipe here.
Gin Thuya Snowball
The Gin Thuya Snowball is perhaps the easiest of all our Snowball cocktails. The most complex part of [...]
As you probably heard from my whining, our entire crew fell sick at one point or another during our trip to Florida. Not a single person was exempt and there was not a single day when someone didn’t stay in bed (or on the couch) because they were too sick to come out and play.
I was the last to be struck down, with my sniffles and fever [...]
And my last birthday treat last night was key lime pie from Shula’s @swandolphin. So very good and knocks another Florida must-eat off my list!
O course now I’ve had one slice of key lime pie, I want another. It was very very good!
My lazy morning starts with coffee brightened with reindeer milk, a clean kitchen thanks to my mother-in-law, and Apple Crumb Cake.
Using julienned apple, Gay Lea Gold Sour Cream, only 1 egg (oops), with some other lex-mods the cake was inspired by Martha Stewart’s New York crumb cake (the one on her site. is not the same as the one in [...]
Tonight’s entertainment! New and old favourites to scour for the many meals of the season. Recognize any favourites? #unsweetenedca
Anticuchos are a Peruvian street food, grilled hot and fast, served with boiled potatoes, salad and corn, and made from beef heart.
Now before you get all squeamish, beef heart is a dark and richly flavourful cut of beef and it tastes like beef not offal. It is all lean muscle, which is good because all the heart does all day is work, so o [...]

“Don’t bother us, we’re having our tea”, says my mother as she and Travel Bunny enjoy a visit over lunch.
Today we lunched at a new spot Dim Sum Kingston.
Mom had the menu waiting by my chair to review when I arrived as one of the options for our dining adventures this visit.
We were pleasantly surprised by the food, [...]
Travel Bunny says: if you go to Kingston you have to go to the Hoagie House for a Cheesesteak Hoagie.
Not gluten-free, not dairy-free, not meat-free. But damn tasty!
And @TravelBunnyis25 says “an apple a day means the Doctor will play!” #savetheday @bbcdoctorwho #thedayofthedoctor #TravelBunny #unsweetenedca
Made my first mug cake tonight.
Since Gerry is gluten and wheat-free these days, and we don’t eat a lot of homebaked goods these days. I’ve been checking these single-serving, craving-fixing mug cakes for a while now. But never really craved cake enough to bother.
Last night was a little different. I had some meyer lemons left o [...]
What a treat to open the door to find these Bauli treats after a long and somewhat trying weekend. Thanks Bauli Canada, I know what’s for coffee break today.
I’ve always looked at Bauli Panettone and Pandoro as magical boxes that show up at the stores before Xmas, since they aren’t really part of my Canadian/anglo/scots/aca [...]
Today Travel Bunny got into lots of harvesting fun. Herbs galore!
I’m delighted to announce that I’m going to be doing some work with CUTCO.
Recently while working with Canadian Beef I was given a set of CUTCO steak knives. I love knives and I’m quite particular about them. In fact, part of my “how Gerry and I met” story includes knives, but that’s another story for another ti [...]
