It’s soup season! And, I couldn’t be happier about it. Soup is so comforting, flavourful and easy to make, and that fact that is warms you up instantly from the inside out is an added bonus. I find my feet and hands cold constantly these days and I’m wrapped up in my sweater for most…

Homemade Pita Pockets

My husband was one of the thousands stranded far from home when the volcano blew in Iceland last week. I was extremely disappointed when his Friday flight home was post-poned until Tuesday with no guaranties that he would actually be able to fly that day. You would have thought the world was coming to an end with how…
