Chef Jesse Vergen, that’s who!
You may remember Jesse from his profile as part of the Chefs #LoveCDNBeef series, his Beef Tongue Taco recipe which is a favourite on Pinterest as well, or from the number of times I’ve mentioned this meal when talking about going to Saint John.
I’m a huge fan of Jesse’s for a bunch of reasons, not the least of [...]
Even back then it was hard to keep me from wiggling in a photoshoot This #tbt is for you @brilynnf
Did I tell you about that time I spent on the island alone over the
winter makeup? (Of course I have) Today’s #TBT is from 2005. My last day on the island before crossing the river ice and coming back to the hustle and bustle of city life. With everything that was going on at the time it was a hard time to be alone and unable to leave [...]
Birthday dim sum for a table full of December and January birthdays.
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 [...]

One of the two of our crew who’ve actually made [...]

Unfortunately, rather than starting our drive home we’ve realized that I’m coming down with whatever illness the rest of the crew has been fighting for over a week. And that Gerry’s “rest day& [...]
Last night at @swandolphin included a wonderful meal @cheftoddenglish’s Bluezoo. @waltdisneyworld #LexGoFurther #loveFL
We are the cool chicks of the universe, beware beware.
Due to inclement weather further north, we decided to take advantage of the 3rd full day on our Disney passes. Unfortunately, 3 of our 7 had to head home. So we bid them a hearty goodbye, and had a little R&R before our 3rd Disney day.
Gerry has started to show some of the sicknes [...]
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!
And I returned to my room for my third birthday cake this one from the @swandolphin hotel! @waltdisneyworld is certainly keeping my birthday filed with cake… Now into the red wine at Shula’s. #LexGoFurther #disneyside #loveFL
