Whenever we think of aioli, we can’t help but remember a meal we had with a good friend of ours. We were two Canadians in Thailand sitting down with our English friend for some burgers and fries at this really spectacular burger joint owned by two Americans on the island of Koh Phangan and when […]

We always love to find new ways to incorporate vegetables into our diet and sometimes veggie substitutions to traditional snacks and sides make it easy to do so. When we discovered baked green bean fries – a dish that can be either a snack or a side and that is both nutritious as well as […]

[no_toc] We’ve partnered with Sabra Canada to bring you this perfect pop-up platter idea but, as always, all opinions are our own and our enjoyment of Sabra hummus is as real as our passion for football! There is one day of the year that perfectly combines two of our favourite things: sports and hosting a […]

There was a period of time when one of us had some serious health issues that required some dietary restrictions for almost a year. During that time, we stocked up on recipes and ingredient knowledge in order to accommodate the various foods and food groups that were no longer allowed as part of that diet. […]

The first, was to get our scuba certification and the second was to have a nice romantic dinner. Unfortunately, the first got in the way of the second in the form of a killer migraine. Carolann […]

We are not wine connoisseurs by any means of the word. Before this year, the extent of our knowledge of wines was that they were either red, white or rosé. In fact, I’m pretty sure if you asked us, we wouldn’t have even been able to tell you where our corkscrew was located.  Having said that, […]

  With only a little more than half of the summer season left, the panic has started to set in.  The dread of the imminent winter season starts to fall upon us well before it realistically should. Especially for those of us farther North from the equator, we know we have precious time to enjoy the warm […]

  Many times we find ourselves craving some quality time together. (Yes, even though we spend 24/7 together while travelling and working). Sure, we love to explore, try new restaurants or check out different festivals but we also enjoy having nights to ourselves (see our post on summertime date ideas).
