Good times at Medieval Times

A Father and Son experience, guest post by my husband, Papa Ash. I fancy myself a bit of a history buff. The Middle Ages is certainly one of my faves. My son is 7 and he definitely likes a good sword fight. So I figured Medieval Times would be good entertainment for my son and I wouldn’t be too bored. But I sure hoped it wouldn’t take too…

Tips for a smoother day and a teething tip from Everything Mom and Baby using iögo

With three kids and husband off to work it can get a little crazy in the morning.  Sometimes I am so tired (clearly my bedtime needs to change!)

The Fast Slow Pro from Breville Canada takes pressure cooking to a whole other level!

  I have discovered the world of pressure cooking and I gotta tell you, I am super impressed.  I was scared to try to the Breville Canada Fast Slow Pro.  Why?

I love the Seed & Fruit Mix for my kids…

Discovering the joy of raclette with Trudeau Cuisine

Raclette /rəˈklɛt/ is a semi-firm cow’s milk cheese that is usually fashioned into a wheel of about 6 kg (13 lb). It is most commonly used for melting. It is also a Swiss/French dish based on heating the cheese and scraping off (racler) the melted part. Ah, raclette.  I have so heard so much about you and couldn’t wait to meet…

BonBon by Le Creuset and a lovely Chocolate Molten Cake{Recipe} #FoodieFriday

If you know me, you know I LOVE Le Creuset.  I have coveted them for years and now have started to collect this fine, French line of cookware.  This is their second colour launch in Canada.  First was their beautiful matte black collection called Licorice.  However, Pantone announced that this year’s colour is Rose Quartz.  Just the right pink, soft  yet vibrant…
