We made reservations at the highly-praised Candle 79 for a pre-show meal before heading off to Radio City Hall.

New York City: Part 2

IMG_0056

Central Park is just as gorgeous as I hoped it would be…and much, much larger! (umm hello, cute kissing romantic couple!) The park was packed with people out walking, running, skating, biking, and rollerblading all enjoying the unseasonably warm temperatures. I think it reached about 18C (64F) on Saturday! We both had to rip off […]

If you guessed we’re in the Big Apple, you’d be right! We lucked out with the weather this weekend; it’s been warm and sunny with highs reaching 15-17C!! Who knew? Today is supposed to reach 20C! Peeling off layers is always a nice surprise. We’ve been getting quite the workout too. No need for the […]

It’s the day after the American Thanksgiving and I’m sure the last thing anyone wants is an energy bar. However, it’s also Black Friday in the US and I figured maybe you could use some energy after all! There is very little that could pull me out of bed at midnight to enter long, cold […]

IMG_4759

If you’re like my family, you probably have some leftover pie after a big holiday meal. Or maybe you don’t because Uncle Joe got up at 2am, cleared the place out, and then blamed it on Scruffy! Poor Scruffy. The next morning, no one really has the nerve to make the first move on the […]

I don’t know about  you, but I’m cold. My fingers haven’t been a normal temperature since September. Yesterday, I decided I was going to be a tough Canadian girl and head outside for a run just after sunrise, despite the fact that it was only about –4C. If you know me, you may know that […]

Vegan Pumpkin Pie, Three Ways: Classic, Rustic, & Gluten-Free

IMG_3764_thumb1

  Making a pie from scratch has to be one of the most feared tasks of all time. I would say it ranks right up there with bread baking, public speaking, and drinking something green. I always had this expectation that everything had to go perfectly for the pie to turn out. If my dough […]

Holiday Salad with Cranberry Apple Orange Vinaigrette

Pop Quiz: Shredded Coconut or snow? Answer: Shredded coconut ……just joking! It’s snow. We had our first dusting of snow today and it made for a nice backdrop for a few photos. The snow also made for a near-death experience while carrying the camera, tripod, plate, and salad dressing across the slippery deck. This may […]
