It was a big success (it even got on Hootsuite’s list of clever social media costumes) and I think part of the success was because it suited my social media-lovin’ personality so well.  For 2016, I decided to be a Snapchat filter!

  • 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!
