MissFresh Meal Kit Delivery Service

Recently I noticed that MissFresh, a meal kit service, was offering 500 AirMiles for first time users. Having tried HelloFresh and Edens Taste, I figured this would be a good chance to try another one and start drawing some comparisons. Trying My First MissFresh Order Like HelloFresh and Edens Taste, the meals from MIssFresh work out to about $11.00 per serving. This seems to be par for the course for these kits. MissFresh deliveries are made on Fridays. This happens to…Continue readingMissFresh Meal Kit Delivery Service

Feeding My Mother – Jann Arden

Feeding My Mother, is a memoir from Canadian singer-songwriter Jann Arden. Arden has been something of a fixture on the Canadian music scene for the last quarter of a century.

Cranberry Raisin Butter Tarts

Tomorrow is the St. Philip’s Roast Beef Dinner. We decided that for dessert, we will be offering several bite size options. I decided to contribute something, and am going with my Cranberry Raisin Butter Tarts. This post is from 2014. Although I originally wrote it in conjunction with that year’s Roast Beef Dinner at St. Philip’s, I’ve found that in the ensuing years it’s a more popular read around Thanksgiving and Christmas. This was a recipe I decide to adapt…Continue readingCranberry Raisin Butter Tarts

Martha Stewart I’m Not, and That’s a Good Thing

Warning: Rant About Martha Stewart Ahead The video posted below features Martha Stewart discussing some of her likes and dislikes. In the middle of the video she goes off on bloggers. Apparently, we should have our voices silenced because we are not original.  In Ms. Stewart’s view this is an insult to all the great artists in the world.[youtube]More insidious is Ms. Stewart’s believe that only experts should have a public voice. We bloggers aren’t experts and so should…Continue readingMartha Stewart I’m Not, and That’s a Good Thing
