June 2018 Newsletter

You know what? You can all go jump in the lake! ’Cause let me tell you… I just did and the water is fine!

We’ve been blessed with a lovely spring here in Ontario’s cottage country, and with it comes the chance to enjoy the great outdoors, making time to hang out with our friends and family – I’m all for it!

Let’s begin with a mental reset about expectations for the next few months – make every day feel like it’s the weekend. Keep thinking like that and you’ll have the best summer ever!

Now on to more tangible things. Here’s a quick update on the stuff Carol and I have in the works to make your spring and summer even more enjoyable.


We’ve been getting a few messages from followers asking us where to find something they may have seen on Instagram or Facebook. They searched the website but can’t seem to find what they’re looking for because, they were looking for one of our CITY SLICKER VIDEOS.

CITY SLICKER VIDEOS are easy-to-follow, minute-long videos, great for when you’re pressed for time. All you need to do is watch and click the info tab at the bottom of each for the full recipe (Oh, and then you gotta make it). Click HERE to view our CITY SLICKER PLAYLIST, now with more than 80 videos. Don’t forget to SAVE that playlist to your favourites for easy access.


We’ll be doing our next FACEBOOK LIVE on Wednesday, June 13, but it comes with a caveat – we’re going to try to broadcast from the cottage, so we ask that you be patient in case the Internet Gods don’t cooperate. If all goes well, we’ll have an exciting announcement, and may even tool around the lake in the canoe. Hmmm, sounds like a grand plan! Well, at least I think so, Carol’s keeping her fingers crossed that it’ll work!!


We’re always excited to visit our friends at CHCH Morning Live and CTV Kitchener. We’ll be back on both Wednesday, June 20 to offer a bunch of tasty treats perfect for Canada Day and the Fourth of July. Did someone say BUTTERTARTS? Oh yeah, now we’re talking!


We recently posted a couple of family-friendly recipes that we’re sure will become summer staples at the cottage. Check out our MEDITERRANEAN PASTA SALAD, BARBECUED CHICKEN WINGS and our silky smooth PANNA COTTA recipes. Hey, sounds like your next complete dinner menu right there.


We’re really looking forward to rolling out our content for the next few months and promise we have something for everyone. We know all the vegetarians will love our original COTTAGE SALAD, chilled MINT & CUCUMBER SOUP and creamy LEMON PASTA. Meat eaters will be able to sink their teeth into our GRILLED FLANK STEAK, flavourful SALMON BURGERS and CAMPFIRE HOT DOGS, for kids of all ages. Finally, just to sweeten the pot, a treasured family recipe for ANGEL FOOD CAKE, and a must-make WILD BLUEBERRY PIE. We’re also going to get a bit sexy too! Who’s up for some SEX IN A PAN?


We have a special request: let us know what recipes you’d like to see this summer. Post a comment, email and look for us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. Send us your questions, whether it’s a recipe, cocktail or anything cottage related, we wanna hear it!

Here’s to warm days, cool drinks and lasting memories!
