May 2018 Newsletter

Can I address the massive elephant in the room? Hey spring, what was that all about!?

I mean seriously, talk about keeping us on the edge of our seats! I now know that I jumped the gun in last month’s newsletter with my enthusiasm for a change in the weather, but this time I feel confident in saying, warmer days and good times are close at hand… promise!

Here’s a quick recap of some of the exciting things you may have missed along with a look at our plans for the coming month.


Congratulations to Terry Denis Peron, the winner of our SMOOTH OPERATOR CONTEST! We know Terry must be loving her VITAMIX S50 and we extend thanks to our friends at HUDSON’S BAY for providing us with our prize. Thanks to everyone who participated – your enthusiasm, comments and feedback were much appreciated.

Of course, we remind you to stay tuned – you never know, we may be announcing our next subscriber recognition giveaway soon!


Mark your calendars and plan to tune into our Facebook page on Monday, May 14 at noon EDT for our next Facebook Live. We’ll be offering our mid-month update plus give you our TIPS ON BEING THE PERFECT COTTAGE GUEST.


We’re heading back to CHCH on Monday, May 14, the cottage travel cooler filled with suggestions on MAKE-AHEAD MEALS. With a couple of key holiday weekends and the start of cottage season fast approaching, you won’t want to miss it!


Carol and I hope you enjoyed last month’s stories about OUTDOOR ACCESSORIES and, FOOD, WINE & ENTERTAINING. Although one of the stories had links back to delicious recipes, the intention was to share easy décor and entertaining tips you can use to make life in the city or country even more memorable. Additional stories we think deserving of your attention: our seriously amazing TURKEY TACOS and that heavenly CARAMELIZED ONION TART WITH MANCHEGO. Make them and discover the fabulous flavours both provide.


We have so many noteworthy stories on the way, I hardly know where to begin. If you’re hungry, how about some SAVOURY WAFFLES and a sweet treat in the form of a ZINFANDEL PANNA COTTA. If you’re thirsty, we know you’ll love our refreshing APPLE BLOSSOM COCKTAIL. Finally, for the gardeners, tips on a HOSTA TAKEOVER, DOCK BOXES and POTTED HERBS. May certainly promises to be a month of many great things.


As always, let’s keep the conversation going on one or more of our favourite social media platforms – look for us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. We also welcome your requests, comments and feedback, so feel free to reach out by sending us an email too!

That’s it for now. As always, here’s to good food, good friends and good times!

Nik and Carol
