I want some jerky!!! #TryJustJerky
Food lovers across Canada are bringing beef jerky to a new level. As interest in all-natural, grass-fed beef merges with the growing artisanal food market, athletes and health-conscious snackers are turning to jerky as a healthier alternative to snacks like chips or bars. British Columbia’s Nimitz Beef is one of … Read more...

One of the rarest things in the world... A photo of me as a newborn! Turns out I've always had that "Suzie-look-o-death" expression. #tbt

You can use regular flour for this recipe to make these lovely turnovers! I needed to product test the President's Choice gluten-free flour: http://www.suziethefoodie.com/strawberry-rhubarb-turnovers-gluten-free/
You can use regular all-purpose flour for this recipe for strawberry rhubarb hand pies. I wanted to put the PC Gluten-Free Flour through my test kitchen.

I ordered the Wally which is one patty, with onions on their regular bun for $4. Which is a wagon bun apparently. What is a wagon bun? I have no idea. I know it is made my a local baker and the patties are made by a local butcher. I do know they have gluten and gluten-free buns are not available. I gather what you see on the bun is their Wally’s sauce. I have to say, at first, I was not very impressed visually speaking. And wait! No mustard? No pickles??? But! This was a delicious little burger. The bun was crisp but soft on the inside. The burger had that authentic charr that made it feel like it came from a backyard BBQ. The crunch and bite of the onions in the centre on the bottom of the bun finished it off perfectly. That said, I really wish they had sweet potato fries but nope. They had the classic regular fries so I got some gravy to go with them. They, also, were excellent. The one very big disappointment was the shake. I ordered the cappuccino milkshake and was given what tasted like a plain vanilla shake. Absolutely no coffee flavour to it at all. As a vanilla shake, it was thick and delicious but I was really disappointed. I am not a vanilla kind of foodie! I am so impressed with Wally’s (other than the milkshake fiasco) that I will be back and next time I am going to get a monstrous burger and enjoy every bite. I give this foodie experience four out of five wooden spoons. If you had gotten my milkshake right, you would have gotten a perfect score. ~ Suzie the Foodie

I knew immediately as soon as I moved into the neighbourhood I wanted to shop at Calabria. The owners are so friendly, informative and helpful. I love that they have veal bacon for those who do not eat pork. The front of the store is charming with a bicycle in the window and a freezer for you to go through and pick out your pot pie for dinner. I have been several times now and pick up goat cheese, Scotch eggs, pot pies and even tried their bread pudding. Food tends to be on the less salty side which a lot of people will appreciate. The butcher told me he makes his pot pie crusts with butter, no shortening. Love it.

When we were moving from Lower Sackville to Vancouver, there were several days we needed to stay in a hotel while the move was happening. It was a perfect location for us! Right between our house and Halifax, overlooking the Bedford Basin. They even have an indoor swimming pool! (You could smell chlorine in the hallways of the first floor). Plus a cute deck for those who want to take a break outside. It was the most vacation-y place we stayed the entire time we were travelling this year. I loved it. A very lovely modern room that thankfully had two beds. It was a lovely room but our view was of the parking lot. No big deal. We just needed a comfortable place to stay while our lives were being moved to the other side of the country. Give me quiet and TV and I am good. This Comfort Inn had the best complimentary continental breakfast I have ever had! Hot cooked food, lots of treats you could toast up and get this! They had waffle batter ready-to-go and a waffle maker!!! I never had time to make my own but that was the coolest. The food was amazing and they helped make us feel like we were on vacation, not in the middle of a very challenging and emotional move.

This flea market was not what I expected. It only costs $25 per table and I was expecting all sorts of people to sort of have their own indoor flea market but instead, these were business with tables and clearly, they have been there for a while. Now there were some real fun spots like the geeky comic book place. But overall it was more like a marketplace than a flea market to me. The vintage kitchen wares spots were very cool to visit but it was clear, they knew that these were treasures and the prices reflected that reality. Old DVDs, cell phone covers, newish purses… That is the kind of stuff that was everywhere at the Vancouver Flea Market. I found ZERO furniture which was a bummer. There were some bikes and lamps but no furniture. Overall, I was not super impressed with Vancouver Flea Market. Now I know my expectations were high but I love thrifting. This? Was all business.

Every night is a different kind of gaming and we showed up to try out Betrayal At House On The Hill for board game night. There is a very large seating area at the back with tons of tables for lots of gaming and has this cool panel on the wall, as well as posters. I played the character Madame Zostra. I had never played this game before and was a little intimidated but the staff at the store played with us so we could figure it out and have tons of fun too. Players Wanted Games & Collectibles was the perfect place to give it a shot and I can not wait to go back and learn about other games. Merchandise selection is excellent. My husband is going to spend a lot of money here! LOL.
