My last post was about cutting out processed food, and I’m slowly getting closer to that goal. I canned a lot of salmon this year. It is a lot of work, but there’s just something so satisfying when you see your rows of hard work sitting upon your shelf. The hardest work (at least to … More Canning!
For awhile now I’ve been wanting to eliminate processed food from our diet. Basically making things from scratch and getting back to basics. I’m already pretty good at that cooking part, I do love to cook and I love the idea of eating simply good-for-you-food. Real food.

A couple weeks ago my lazy arse wanted to wash the make-up off my face. Sitting beside me were some baby-wipes. I plucked one out and proceeded to wipe off my make-up. Within a minute my face began to feel like it was burning, and when I looked into the mirror, it was turning a … More DIY Natural baby wipes
I’ve been M.I.A for awhile. The summer has a way of doing that I suppose. But I am here! I check in but haven’t always had the time or motivation to write as much. I know. Bad me. One thing I love about summer is the ability to cook on the BBQ. Although, these days … More Summer lovin’

But knowing that I’m going to wake up to the sweet smell of coffee brewing is enough to help me get my butt up in the morning. Oh, well that and the sweet … More Coconut milk coffee creamer= Heaven in a cup!

You slowly begin by running for periods of one minute and walking for two to one minutes. Slowly the time gets longer. Basically, by the end of the nine weeks you should be … More My legs are crying.

I think that we can agree that chicken that has been raised without the use of hormones and antibiotics, and fed organic feed probably produces a chicken that is better for us. It’s been told that organic chicken is not only better for you, but it tastes better too. But would you be able to … More Can you really taste the difference between organic chicken and non-organic chicken?!
Mission is home to British Columbia’s winter games this year, and the official torch lighting took place in November. I just wanted to share a few (although not the greatest) pictures. It was a packed house in the skating arena, and many had to stand. My husband is second from the right and my son … More B.C Winter Games Torch lighting
