Mountsberg - Collecting Sap

I love maple syrup. It’s sticky, honey-brown, delicious on pancakes with sausages and I couldn’t be luckier that nearly 100% of all the maple syrup in the world is made within a day’s drive from my own front yard. Usually, the first week in April has hubby and I driving to his hometown of Elmira, […]

Icewine Festival - Peller Dining Room

Every year in March and November, Signature Kitchens of Niagara-on-the-Lake run an 8-day event called Fabulicious.

I have been saving this piece in my back pocket for a cold winter day in order to relive the warm, sun-filled days […]

Located in the heart of Westdale Village near McMaster University this Italian-inspired eatery is a must-visit. With their daily home-made pastas, creative bruchettas and divine desserts I have plans to go back as often as social norms […]

24th Feast of Fields - Magic Oven

On a sunny day in September 2013, the Cold Creek Conservation Area transformed into the 24th Annual Feast of Fields where hundreds of people gathered together to feast on delicious organic foods, and I was one of them. I first started consciously eating organic meats, produce and dairy during University when I could spare the […]

Royal Botanical Gardens

My Nonna loved everything about flowers. Every Birthday and Christmas card I ever received from her had beautiful hand-drawn flowers inside. It was with my Nonna that I first visited the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington. This summer I returned, after a long hiatus, to celebrate Canada Day. July 1, 2013 was a hot and […]
