Cooking with Kenny: Mussels Marinara with Wayfayers Beer Bread

A while back while visiting Wayfayers’ Ale Society in Port Williams, Nova Scotia we were bestowed with a beer bread recipe from Colleen, one of the most personable, and delightful servers we have ever met.  We came home that day with their Ruby Ale…

Planning the Farm

“Tell me, what is it that you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” Mary Oliver This time last year I was in midst of facilitating a move across the country.  Obsessively, I checked new real estate listings, made sure our…

Welcoming Winter

When I was a kid I hated getting up for the school bus.  Especially in the winter.  I would strategically set my alarm clock-radio ahead ten minutes, and allow for an excessive amount of snoozes.  I’d begrudgingly get up at the last, possible moment…

Cooking with Kenny, the Pasta Edition!

The first time I went to Kenny’s house I saw the Pasta Queen, an old-fashioned pasta roller with a hand crank.  It sat neatly on the counter, arranged with several cookbooks behind it.  I was just getting to know him, and I knew he loved food,…

Reflection of an Eclipse

My new life happens in two week blocks.  Every other Friday is garbage day, and the day I bottle my kombucha.  On that day Kenny and I marvel at how the time has gone by since the last garbage day and reflect on all…

The Tractor

If you were to tell me when I was nine years old that in 25 years I would own a house with a wood stove, and enjoy stacking wood, I would have rolled my eyes so far back in my head I’d be blind. …

Fresh Air and Blueberries

Every once in a while a simple moment takes me away to a former occasion where I savoured the remarkably familiar nuances of life.  It just so happens these heart-stirring occurrences have been happening a little more frequently lately, and they’re rather fortuitous.  There’s…
