I want this summer to be jam-packed with new memories. So I’ve decided to create a list of things to do to help make this summer action packed and full of fun. The list isn’t complete by any means and chances are, I will add to the list and make changes as I see fit and that’s ok. Part of the excitement of summer is doing things spontaneously! And I hope to take advantage of  the long days to the fullest.

I want more days away from the city. Either camping or road tripping to an unknown destination. More time at a lake is a must. I love my city, but would love it even more if there were more lakes that were of welcoming temperature rather than glacier runoff. I want weekend getaways to new cities for baseball games, strolls through downtown at night, bike rides through downtown at night and there’s nothing like an outdoor concert.

The first thing that was crossed off the list was a girls cottage getaway and that all went down last weekend. Myself and 3 lovely friends took advantage of Ontario’s beautiful climate for a weekend adventure at Stoney Lake. We rented a cute little cottage right on the water at Viamede Resort located in the Kwarthas. This place was made for summertime fun.  Picture the movie dirty dancing and this was the setting of our weekend. Only with a little less dancing and little less Swayze. The whole weekend was full of firsts and wonderful memories shared with friends. It’s a beautiful country we live in and summer is the best time explore!

I hope I encourage you to make your own list of adventures and share with all near and far.

Happy Sunday.

Pizza Lovers, Be Warned: Pizza with Strawberries, Goat’s Cheese and Pink Peppercorn

Forget all the pizza knowledge you have acquired throughout your pizza-adoring life, because it is time for a reset!

A pizza is not just a brilliant edible plate to help you transport tomato sauce smothered with mozzarella into your mouth, it is also –and more importantly- a white canvas that you can paint with all the yummiest flavour combos on the planet. And when I’m talking about flavour combos, I don’t mean the usual peperoni-cheese/ tuna-olive / ham-pineapple (oh horror!)/ …

Oh no. What I mean by yummy flavour combos are those bonkers, stylish, avant-garde flavours you would normally never put on a pizza. Not in a million years. And yet you do it, because you’re the Queen of Flavour Bombs and trust your own foodie instincts.

A couple of days ago, I (the one and only Queen of Flavour Bombs) had a pizza epiphany:

I.Put. Strawberries. On. My. Pizza.

Oh la la frittata

Oh la la frittata

I’ve been perfecting my frittata game the last few weeks. It’s safe to say I nailed it! These are so quick and simple to make and reheat just great for those who are on the go. I always make a weeks worth of breakfasts on Sundays to ensure I’m well fueled to start the day. By doing so I save plenty of time in the mornings and never skip the most important meal of the day.
