T his linky party is the perfect place to show off your creativity! Share your blog posts, for a chance to be featured next month!      I hope you are all keeping cool, as we have reached sweltering temperatures here in Ontario, with extremely high humidity. We decided to stay home from the cottage this weekend, to prepare for a big friends and family event on the weekend of the 13th. So, I am happy we are in an air conditioned home, rather than a cottage LOL.  Thank you so much for joining us, and I hope you all have a wonderful week!  __________________________________________________________________ Welcome to the second week of the August 2022 blog hop called " You're the Star " !

Hog's Head Harry Potter Butterbeer Floats

 This simple 4-Ingredient recipe, has all the goodness of Butterbeer, paired with creamy vanilla ice cream. I'm sure Harry, Ron and Hermione would approve! Jump to Recipe Ever since I read the first chapter of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer Stone, I have been hooked. There is just something about the magical world that I love. The possibility that things are more than we see is something I've always day dreamed about as a child.  Once my children came into the world, I shared my love of Harry Potter with them. I've read them the books, we've watched the movies (more time than I can count) and I've made a few Harry Potter themed movie nights.  Since clear cream soda is something we usually do not have in Canada (ours is pink), I've never been able to try and recreate Butterbeer. Until this past week! What is Butterbeer? In the Harry Potter series of novels and movies, you see Harry, Ron and Hermione enjoy Butterbeer at a pub called the Hog's Head. It is descri

50+ Creative Cottage Meal Ideas

When the warm weather hits many of us head to the cottage, to enjoy the sunshine and time near the water. Instead of always packing up burgers and hot dogs, I've rounded up over 50 creative meal ideas for delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Ever since I was little my family always enjoyed a few weeks camping at a near by provincial park, during the summer months. When us kids, became older and moved away, Mom and Dad bought a trailer which remained parked at a location, so we would often go and visit for a few weeks then too. My mom has always been an amazing cook and with her outside kitchen often made our family favourites, even at camp. Now that my SO and his family have a cottage, we are frequently there for most of the summer. Hamburgers and Hot Dogs seem to be our go to, so I wanted to collect new creative meals perfect to make while camping, or at the cottage.  Breakfast Recipes Healthy Banana Milkshake Thick, creamy banana milkshake made without ice cream, dairy, and
