Move over paint nite, pallet sign making workshops are where its at. I recently attended Free Spirit Market’s pallet sign making workshop and it was a blast.
Raspberry season is the best. There’s nothing like picking fresh raspberries from your backyard patch and making them into delicious jams and jellies.
Last month I enjoyed making (and eating!) no churn ice cream so much that I wanted to make a flavour for each month. So in honour of warm July days spent picking raspberries in the hot sun, I’ve come up with this delicious no churn raspberry chocolate ice cream.
Peony season is finally here! For two weeks in June peony lovers everywhere rejoice and furiously arrange and photograph their precious flowers. . . or maybe that’s just me. There’s nothing like those delicate shades of pink and that glorious scent wafting from every bloom.
If you live in hardiness zones 2-8, you really need to pick up a peony root from your nearest garden centre or friend with too many on her hands. Here’s everything you need to know to grow and play with herbaceous peonies.
Canada’s 150th birthday is fast approaching! If there’s any year to throw a Canada Day celebration for your friends and family–this is the year.
Planning the perfect backyard Canada Day celebration doesn’t have to be hard. I’ve come up with a couple of easy and fun ideas to make your party a success.
Every summer, my family searched high and low for a coveted box of New York Cherry Cheesecake ice cream. Not just any grocery store would carry it, and even the ones that did didn’t always have it in stock.
It was the small-town-holy-grail of ice cream.
When I was in grade three we managed to secure a box during a sleepover with my best friend. We happily devoured the ice cream, fearing no consequence. Unfortunately, the next day I woke up with small red spots all over my body.
“Yikes, must have been the cherry cheese cake ice cream we ate last night. Maybe you’re allergic.” proclaimed my concerned nine-year-old friend.
I felt itchy all over as I imagined my fate without my favourite ice cream.
Turned out, it was chicken pox.
While I’m positive that the ice cream had nothing to do with chicken pox, it is a fun memory that I always think of when I eat this ice cream.
What hasn’t changed? New York Cherry Cheesecake ice cream is still hard to find in Saskatchewan. (Thank you Twisted Sisters in Chamberlain, SK for carrying it!!)
I set out to make my own.
