Sodium Calculations

As I wrote about a month and a half ago, I have to watch my intake of sodium. The biggest thing with watching your sodium comes from how much of that salty goodness is in pre-packaged food. Unfortunately, there is still sodium in almost every food you imbibe. I am […]


Life without …

So it’s been a long, long time since I’ve had a chance to write anything. You know what happened? Life … fancy that! Living in Canada means that my kids don’t get out of school until the end of June. So the school year’s end is a truly hectic time […]


Five Guys – Saskatoon

I’m not exactly sure when Five Guys Burgers & Fries opened up in the States or when it became such a big thing. Honestly it just seems like it’s another restaurant that has gone by the KISS principle¬†– Keep It Simple Stupid. They made the menu small and tried to […]


The Holidays are upon us

As most of you are aware, the holiday season has hit North America like the Polar Express steaming into the North Pole. Some of you know that I am a family man with a wife and girl/boy twins. Some of you may also know that I work in retail – […]


GF Cookies

As you may have noticed from my blog and from numerous social media posts, I LOVE cookies. Home-made are always the best – made with love and those beautiful passed down recipes. Unfortunately, life has a way of making things busy. You know – kids, kids’ activities, holidays, work, family, […]


Griffin Takeaway

Shortly BC, I didn’t know anything about Gluten Free food. I was pretty sure that gluten helped with elasticity in pizza and other types of dough. Other than that, I was clueless. Like most people I likely assumed that Gluten Free was taste free. Well, since then I have discovered […]


Chili’s Saskatoon

In the U.S.A., Chili’s is a fairly popular chain restaurant based on Southwest and Southern fusion with a penchant for hot and spicy food.. And as restaurants went in the States, it was one of my favourites and then we moved north of the border. Chili’s were few and much […]


Lit Happens Interview

As some of you have surmised, I now live in the the Great White North (of North America), otherwise known as Canada. I’m originally from the States, but now call the lovely city of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, my home. In this Bridge City, there is a local literary show called “Lit […]


Udi’s Gluten Free

Bread, bagels, tortillas, cake, cookies, pizza … the list goes on and on of items that you supposedly cannot have as soon as you’re diagnosed with Celiac’s Disease. BCD, I didn’t worry about where I was getting bread or what kind. Of course that changed immediately ACD. Fortunately we now […]


Chez Cora’s

Across Canada, there is a breakfast cafe chain that thrives on fresh, wholesome food centred around fruit. On the whole, or in slices, Chez Cora is a fantastic idea – if you like that kind of good for you, fru-fru, I mean fruit-fruit, stuff! Personally I believe that breakfast should […]
