When I was a child, my mom and dad moved us from Ottawa, Ontario to Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. I guess technically it was my step-father but to me, at that time in life he was the only dad I knew. It was not until the age of 15 that I met my real father. That … Continue reading A Story and A Slow Cooker Recipe To Beat The Summer Heat

I would not of known what was doing what. So give me a week or two and I will be back to fighting shape! Oh and go make these meatballs – you can find my recipe for tzatziki if you enter pork souvlaki in the search field – and tell me how good they are, k?! xo
