Butter for Food ‘n Flix

Welcome to the cut throat world of butter carving in Iowa! Butter, a comedy about sex, power and spreading the wealth. There’s going to be a meltdown!

I bet our group leader Heather is relieved. I am so very honored to be hosting again this month’s edition of Food ‘n Flix … and I DID NOT choose a bride/marriage movie for the month of June (as I did last year). This month we are going down a silly route combining art, competition and sculpture with the movie Butter. Feel free to join our group, just watch the movie and then head into the kitchen to make a dish inspired by the film.

Crab Louie Salad, the healthy San Francisco Treat?

Featured in menus of reputable San Francisco & Portland restaurants since the early 1900s, this crab meat salad is a typical example of a locally sourced West Coast salad.

In Canada we are about to embark on our first long weekend of the summer. Monday is called Victoria Day (or National Patriot Day in Quebec). The weather is looking relatively nice and I will do my first trip to the cottage on Sunday. It’s the perfect time to start eating a bit lighter to for the summer and enjoy lovingly prepared fancy salads. I came across this West Coast classic and just had to give it a try, the Crab Louie Salad.

Cruising through Colombia, Panama and Costa Rica

Let me take you on a boat ride…a picture tour of my recent trip while cruising through Colombia, Panama and Costa Rica.

It has been almost a 1 month already since I am back from a wonderful cruise holiday and I am still finding the return to reality and daily routine a torture. Do you ever feel that way once you get back from a vacation? I have yet to tire of looking at the pictures we took and I am thrilled to show you the best ones today.

Have you been on a cruise before? This was my first real cruise (I did a weird and tiny one with an adventure company years ago). I just loved the itinerary of my recent cruise: the boat left from Montego Bay, Jamaica and we had stops in: Santa Marta and Cartagena in Colombia, Panama and Costa Rica.
