Let’s make sausage hash

I will begin this post by acknowledging the fact that the name I have given a particular food dish I recently made may be entirely inaccurate. Personally, I think calling what I made a sausage hash encapsulates this dish in all its glory, but I’m not a chef, nor am I a food expert. So, … More Let’s make sausage hash

Read this if you’re a fan of Vietnamese spring rolls

When my Oma and Opa were still here with us Earth-side, towards the end of their lives, they found themselves living in Hamilton. They lived in a retirement home, and once a week, my mom would head to the Hammer to visit with them, run any errands then required, etc. I was in university during … More Read this if you’re a fan of Vietnamese spring rolls

You never know who you might be talking to

This past weekend, my mom, sister and me took a much-needed afternoon to get away from the farm for a little while. Anyone who comes from a farm background will know precisely what I mean in my previous statement, and for anyone unfamiliar with agriculture and farming families, I’ll briefly explain; because most family farms … More You never know who you might be talking to

Should you do yoga?

One of my dearest friends recently set out on a lifelong goal of becoming a certified yoga instructor. She travelled to Costa Rica to do so and completed an intensive and thorough course to earn her yoga teaching credentials, and in chatting with her about it and everything the course entailed, I’ve come to not … More Should you do yoga?

How ‘bear’ you?

Please excuse my sad attempt at a quirky pun for the title of today’s post. Bear puns aren’t exactly the most common thing, so it was a little tricky trying to make a play on words about these majestic beasts. Bears scare the absolute shit out of me, and they always have. I’ve been scared … More How ‘bear’ you?

Here’s how to make your own Bits and Bites

My husband is a tremendous fan of Bits and Bits, specifically the barbeque flavour, which can be tricky to find. His ultimate preference, however, is his mom’s homemade Bits and Bits, and understandably so; I have yet to consume anything my mother-in-law has prepared that is anything shy of phenomenal, and her Bits and Bites … More Here’s how to make your own Bits and Bites

Know your brows

The relationship between myself and my eyebrows is an extensive one, with an interesting history. I have quite literally done just about everything to my eyebrows over the course of the years; I’ve overplucked them, under plucked them, failed miserably in attempting to shape them, accidentally removed half of one, filled them in too heavily, … More Know your brows

Here’s why you should bless your hair with some Morroccanoil Treatment

I have expressed my love for Morroccanoil hair products a few times already here on my blog, and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. I have yet to try a product made by this brand that is anything short of great, and it treats my hair rather nicely, if I may say so. I’ve … More Here’s why you should bless your hair with some Morroccanoil Treatment

Why are we fat-shaming people trying to lose weight?

There is a strong chance you’re heard the term fat-shaming before. In simple words, it essentially involves making someone overweight feel like a complete piece of shit because of their size, invalidating their own emotions and the fact that they’re a human being in the process. Socially, we have been conditioned to perceive overweight people … More Why are we fat-shaming people trying to lose weight?

Welcome, 2023

Happy, happy new year, my friends. I hope you were all able to participate in whatever your festivity preference for ringing in the new year is, and I wish you all health, love and happiness in 2023 and beyond. I thought it might be fun to do a 2022 recap – not only for myself, … More Welcome, 2023

Here’s how hard water shampoo and conditioner treat your hair

I mentioned in a post a while back that Blaine and I are dealing with some rather hard water in the house we live in. We have a water softener waiting to be installed, but in the meantime, our hair has taken a bit of a beating from the effects of hard water, and I … More Here’s how hard water shampoo and conditioner treat your hair
