Good Morning Everyone!

Would you like to know a super quick and easy way to create a spot for organization?
Here is a little tip using a tension rod and curtain rings.

I was rooting through my front closet a few weeks before Christmas looking for something. I don't even remember what it was now, because I got distracted when I stumbled across an old tension rod we were using in the bathroom before we installed the permanent one. This happens all the time. It's a wonder anything gets accomplished around here.

Hi Everybody, 

Hope all of you had a good Christmas, full of fun, family, and too much food! 

While I was wrapping the last of the gifts on Christmas Eve (Mrs. Last-Minute!), I just happened to glance over at my boring tissue box on the kitchen counter.

Oven-Baked BBQ Ribs


Circa 1978

I'm currently going through my very old recipes and getting them onto my computer so that I can start a binder. They were originally done up on my typewriter. Oh yes.That contraption with the annoying little bell that dings when you get to the end of each row!

Cookie Cutter Christmas Tree Ornaments

Blingy Tree Ornaments From Cookie Cutters

Hi everybody! 

Got a weather report for you! Winter has hit Alberta with a vengeance. We made it to the 

top of the list for the Coldest Place in the World this Thursday, registering in at minus 40 degrees! Brrrrr! Here's a photo of our deck three days ago. 

Why yes, I certainly did shovel all that lovely snow!

Crazy! I'm soooo glad I put the outdoor lights up at the end of October!
But enough of that! Now on to the post!

Best Pancake Recipe


(Source:  Canada AM, circa 1977)

When I first graduated college I was briefly unemployed. I would get up at 6:00 in the morning to watch my favorite news show, Canada AM, before heading out to hunt down a job. There was a weekly segment devoted to cooking.
