Review + Giveaway: Crash Hotel Lobby Bar

Crash Hotel Lobby Bar Edmonton

One of the great things about the opening of the new Rogers Place in downtown Edmonton is that it spurred a lot of downtown businesses to revitalize and reinvent themselves in anticipation of increased crowds in the area.  One of those reinvented spots – the Crash Hotel Lobby Bar at 10260 103 Street, right across from Rogers Place.  This hotel has a long history in Edmonton. It was first built in 1904 as…

Review + Giveaway: Tupperware Meal Prep Party

Tupperware Meal Prep Party Edmonton

I bet when you read “Tupperware” in the title of this blog post, some things immediately came to mind. Like, tupperware? Oh, food storage containers that take up all that room in my cupboard. Or, tupperware party? So I watch someone talking about Tupperware before having to buy?  When my friend Michelle Bootsman reached out and asked if I’d want to check out her Tupperware Meal Prep Party, I was really interested to learn…

Review + Giveaway: Dog Daycare at Infinite Pawsibilities (Edmonton)

Artie first day daycare

Having a dog takes a lot of work and a lot of understanding. There’s a degree of “Yup, stuff in our house is going to get destroyed … those floors are going to get peed and pooped on … no, that schedule won’t work because we need to walk the dog at that time” type of understanding that comes up with dog ownership.  All the joys of having a dog…

Review + Giveaway: HelloFresh Meal Box Delivery Service

HelloFresh Canada Food Meal Box Delivery 1

Mike and I have tried some food delivery subscription services in past, but have never landed on anything we wanted to use long-term. Either the delivery dates for our neighbourhood were too close to the weekend (so we’d be eating out during those days anyway and food would go to waste) or we’d get ingredients in the box and some ideas on what to make with them but we’d still…

Review + Giveaway: SideQuests Adventure Inc. Edmonton Escape Rooms

SideQuests Adventure Inc Edmonton Escape Rooms

Happy New Year everyone! I was hoping my first post of 2017 would be some type of thoughtful recap of the past year and just as thoughtful look-ahead to the coming year, but I haven’t really had a chance to put together those thoughtful thoughts, so instead I’m going to blab on about some more Edmonton escape games. :)  I always love when an escape room introduces new rules or new types of…

  • Mmm! 😍😍 I loved the "Birthday Cake" rolled ice cream at @sweettoothyyc!! 🍦 Vanilla bean ice cream with golden oreos, confetti sprinkles, raspberry sauce, whipped cream, raspberry drizzle, toasted hazelnuts and almonds, and strawberry Pocky! 🙌🏻 First time trying rolled ice cream and was delighted. @mikethyking got the "Monkey Business" banana butterscotch one. Also 💯🍌.

  • The best volunteer gigs are ones that involve eating delicious food... 😍 Congrats to @WoodWorkYEG @chef_porter for winning Judge's Choice at the Mount Royal School @TheCulinaryArtsCookOff fundraiser! The winning dish was this Israeli pesto couscous with duck fat, sage, honey balsamic & cheese. 🙏🏻 Kids Choice (and also my 2nd pick) was a butter bacon chicken fat soaked pasta from @shanemedericchartrand! (Perhaps all things could be soaked in butter bacon chicken fat? 😍🤔 lol) Proceeds from this annual cook off and silent auction go to support the school! A very tasty and important cause I'm lucky to have been a guest judge for. ☺️

  • Finally tried @callemexicorestaurant and don't know why it took me so long! 🌮 Delicious beef nachos (excellent crisp factor lol), al pastor pork tacos with pineapple, and green enchiladas! Yum. Thanks for the lunch date @nicopringo.
  • And another long weekend comes to an end! Hope you had a great one. 💛 We spent time with family and friends, slept-in, binge-watched Netflix, long-walked the dogs, celebrated Thor's 6th birthday and celebrated @mikethyking's birthday at @TheRecRoomCA! 🤗
This is their tasty wood-grilled pork chop with pickled mustard, whipped potatoes and braised red cabbage. I also had their lemon-fried calamari which was delicious!
