Cooking made easier on the grill

bqMy husband has recently started a huge change in his diet. Or should I say he just all of his eating habits. He had recently purchased salmon in a bourbon marinade to cook on the grill.

This skillet makes life so much easier. The food tastes great. Continue reading →

Taking Your Kids Out And About In Summer

Summer is the perfect time to get your kids out and about. After being stuck inside thanks to winter and the cold it brings, and possibly being contained indoors due to the pollen epidemics that come with every spring and the thawing of the winter ice – summer is finally a time with balanced weather. It means you can go out to the park, out to the beach, out on vacation without the weather disrupting your plans. Of course, the rain will still have a part to play, with surprise showers, but you can bank on it being mostly sunny during the summer months. That means you can plan to get out of the house!
