I have an announcement to make….. starting tomorrow, I will be eating a diet of exclusively raw food for 100 days. I mean to say that, until September 8, no food shall pass my lips that has been brought to a temperature higher than 118 degrees. According to Wikepedia, foodism is “Raw [...]

If you haven’t explored quinoa yet, I highly recommend it. Nutty in flavour and full of protein, quinoa is a delicious departure from rice or potatoes. Plus it’s just as easy to make. The chicken component of this meal was inspired by bbq leftovers from last night. I don’t know where the heck those busty [...]
This is actually part 2 of an earlier post….what started out as ‘lobster sandwiches!’ resulted in some left over shells. It would be a crime to through them away. Roasting said shells and making them into a flavourful stock is time well spent- trust me. Last night I opted to transform the stock into a [...]
My super awesome friend, Peter P, came by yesterday to help me with a plethora of computer issues. Quite frankly, I don’t know where I’d be without him. I certainly wouldn’t have this blog. He has been a quintessential part of global peasant’s lay out and functions since even before its first post back in [...]
Tomatoes growing in the sun room.
It seems like forever since mid February, when the tomato seeds were first planted into their tiny little peat filled trays. Gardener’s Delight, Black Krim, Kootenai and Green Zebra are the 4 varieties that are growing almost right under my eyes. Nurturing duties include daily watering, trimming back the leaves [...]
Sue embraces her brand new husband, Robert. (Michel Laflamme photo)
What more could one ask for than to see those we love happy and healthy? My friend, Sue, is from Vancouver, but has been living in Nairobi for the last two years. It was there that she and Robert met and fell in love. And it [...]
You can’t make this stuff up. Catholic-anti Mafia group Libera first began back on March 25, 1995 with the purpose of “involving and supporting all those who are interested in the fight against mafias and organized crime“. Since that time, Italian law has allowed over 3000 farms to be confiscated from the Mafia (by [...]
My friend, Brad, was by yesterday afternoon to wash his car in our driveway (he lives in an apartment) and to watch some of the Rome Masters Tennis Series (he has no t.v. of his own and claims that if he did, he would be hopelessly glued to it day and night). And I believe [...]
I really don’t have many hankerings for sweets, which is probably why I’m not much of a baker. But for some reason, today I felt like making some cookies. This recipe comes from my mom. June usually reserves this particular cookie for Christmas time…..I guess because of its many holiday memory triggering spices. But I [...]
