READ IT IN 3 minutesSo August 1st hey? Ugh, but it’s okay we have lots of summer left. Why don’t we kick of this month with my FAV summer beers.  If you’re not a huge beer drinker, this post is for you. We love a crisp glass of rosΓ©, bubbly or vino but sometimes an ice cold refreshing beer is what we need while boating, floating the river or lounging on a rooftop.  We also want to ENJOY a beer, not just tolerate it.  These summer beers are extremely flavourful. Think white peach, coriander and passionfruit, grapefruit, cinnamon horchata and berries. FUN RIGHT?!     x BUD LIGHT RADLER This is perfect because it is stocked at pretty much every liquor store, making it easy to pick up when […]

READ IT IN 2 minutesBut seriously. SO OVER IT. Not to mention the lines at Costco. On a Sunday. *eyeroll* So I started searching for anyway to avoid it and came across Chefs Plate.

PLUS it’s not just in Calgary… they deliver to Alberta, Ontario, British Columbia, & Manitoba and they are expanding quickly. So you still cook it AKA it’s fresh for whichever day you want to make it but the prep is cut in half. Maybe even more than half.  NOT TO MENTION the number of times I’ve forgotten something I’ve needed for a recipe and sat on my […]

READ IT IN 1 minuteI found this St. Patrick’s Day drink recipe and HAD TO SHARE. It’s so girlie and fun.

UM YES. “My girlfriends and I like chilled, easy-drinking wine that you can have one to two or two to three glasses of, and it’s not so heavy.”  – Wine Enthusiast Like this is right up our alley.
