Crowsnest Pub, Tobermory Ontario

I’ve always known Ontario was a large province, but this is crazy! We’re 4 days into our 9-day trip and we’re about halfway through Ontario. Kevin keeps telling me that it’s time to hustle, “We have to make good time today – get some kilometers under our belt.” he says. When all I want to…

Healthy Lemonade

Healthy Lemonade

I got home from Calgary late Sunday night and all I could think about was lemonade. Not just any lemonade, the (good) homemade stuff. The 10 lemon crushing, finger stinging, water and sugar boiling, lemonade. And not just a glass of it, I wanted a big ‘ol pitcher of it.

No bake Cinnamon Raisin Granola Bars

I’ve never been evacuated from my home. I’ve never shoveled wet mud over my basement windows, or stacked sandbags in front of my garage. I’ve never had my home torn into pieces by a river. I’ve never seen my valuables soaked in 8 feet of water. I’ve never had to pick pine needles from my…
