Enchilada Chicken Lasagna

What do you do when you've got a fridge/pantry/freezer full of food, but not sure what to make? You start throwing things together and see what comes out of it! They do say, necessity is the mother of invention...  While I know I wasn't the first one to come up with the concept of fusing the … Continue reading Enchilada Chicken Lasagna

School Days and School Bread

The heralding of September always brings to mind the starting of school. It is a new beginning full of potential for good intentions. A clean slate, if you will. 😉 The chaos of summer falls away for the comfortable routine where order reigns. It might not last long, but it always starts out good. Traditional school … Continue reading School Days and School Bread

A Cannoli Kind Of Day

While visiting the United States I came across a dairy-free ricotta cheese made by Tofutti.  I was quite excited to find a dairy-free substitute and my mind started going in all kinds of directions as to what sort of treat to make with this.  I was a little hesitant about what it might taste like as … Continue reading A Cannoli Kind Of Day

Day 12 – London

Monday, April 17, 2017 My last and final day of an incredibly amazing trip. As I have been travelling with just a small backpack, I have saved my shopping for this last day so I wouldn't be carrying it on my back everywhere I went.  I did buy a few gifts for family in some … Continue reading Day 12 – London

Day 11 – London

I am finally making time to write my next post - sorry for the delay! Sunday, April 16, 2017 It is Easter Sunday, and as it is a holiday with many places closed or on reduced hours, I took the time this morning to wander about a few places.  One place I wanted to see was 221b Baker Street, home … Continue reading Day 11 – London

Day 7 – Beausale, Haseley, Hatton, Warwick

Wednesday, April 12, 2017 I will give you fair warning: this is going to be a long posting! Everywhere I looked I saw old buildings, beautiful countryside, and interesting things; I couldn't refrain from taking several pictures - 876 to be exact. I went through 2 camera batteries and had to resort to my cell … Continue reading Day 7 – Beausale, Haseley, Hatton, Warwick

Day 6 – Edinburgh, Balloch, Glasgow, Leamington Spa, and Warwick

Tuesday, April 11, 2017 I woke up quite early which was wonderful because it gave me a chance to enjoy my lovely room just that much longer (crazy, huh?). There was a French press coffee maker so I finally had a chance to sit back with my book and a cup of coffee and read … Continue reading Day 6 – Edinburgh, Balloch, Glasgow, Leamington Spa, and Warwick

Day 5 – Edinburgh, Scotland

Monday, April 10, 2017 Leaving Doncaster behind today to travel further north. Passing through towns and cities, crossing the River Tyne at Newcastle, the North Sea, and passing through the rolling Scottish hillside. I was practically glued to my train window, not wanting to miss a thing. If there had been some way of being able … Continue reading Day 5 – Edinburgh, Scotland

Product Review – Chao Dairy-free Cheese, Tomato and Cayenne flavour

One of the most difficult things to substitute when living dairy-free is cheese. It is hard to find something that tastes good, melts, and gives you all those feel-good memories from your childhood. I've tried a few different brands from the grocery store and most have simply been a waste of money. I'll eat most … Continue reading Product Review – Chao Dairy-free Cheese, Tomato and Cayenne flavour
