Pressure Cooker Asian-Style Boneless Beef Short Ribs

I know I’ve shared another pressure cooker beef short ribs recipe before but I don’t think it hurts to share another tasty one! I’ve tried this recipe twice now and it was delicious both times! I found this in my copy of Pressure Cooker Perfection from America’s Test Kitchen and followed it closely with just minor […]

One of a Kind Christmas Show 2013

I love attending the One of a Kind Christmas Show and Sale in Toronto. It has become something of a tradition to attend with a couple of my friends in particular. This show has been around since 1975 and is the largest consumer craft show in North America. It is a huge show and features local […]

My next six posts will be short and sweet – consisting of information about […]

A Beautiful Day for Apple Picking

There is nothing quite like a crunchy just-picked apple!  I have some great memories of going apple picking with my parents and brother as a kid.  I remember breathing in the crisp autumn air and rushing into the apple orchard to find the perfect apples.  I remember how we’d bring bottles of water with us […]
