Summer BBQ – Corn Salad

August 27th, 2011

When I think of summer, I think of things like ribfests, patios, local summer fruit and corn. Our warmest season, though short, is full of things to do and enjoy. It wouldn’t be summer without days spent on restaurant patios, parks full of people and the marvelous smell and smoke from grilled ribs, and farmer’s […]

Summer BBQ – Venison Burgers

August 26th, 2011

Summer is the perfect season to get together with friends and fire up the grill. I love entertaining, but I never take photos when I have people over – so I usually end up without much documentation of what I’ve done. I’ve wanted to do a summer BBQ theme for a while, and this is […]

The Garden of Earthly Delights goes Social

August 24th, 2011

Happy Hump Day! I hope your week is going well. I’ve decided it’s time to spruce up my Blogspot space a bit while I work on a WordPress redesign (it’s gonna be a long road, but with some exciting changes), starting with my social networks! I’ve had most of these accounts registered for a while, […]

The First Tomatoes of the Season

August 17th, 2011

Yesterday, I picked the first tomatoes from our little garden. It’s been an odd year for gardening, and what originally began as a plan to have a variety of vegetables in our garden turned into a large mass of cherry tomato plants. Last year, we grew snap peas, zucchini and summer squash, six varieties of […]

Happy Birthday, Material Girl!

August 17th, 2011

It’s Madonna’s birthday today! Does anyone else think that she’s hit a point at which she doesn’t seem to be aging? Okay, maybe it’s just me. I never really listened to popular music until I got my own stereo in highschool – my parents are much more into classical music and musical numbers – but […]

Batik Scarves

August 15th, 2011

Here’s hoping everyone had a good weekend! I’ve already read some of my friends’ in-party BBMs and seen a video from a trip to Canada’s Wonderland, so I know I’m not the only one who was up to some fun! I went to visit my parents this weekend for the first time in years. They […]

Peach Kuchen

August 12th, 2011

I love this time of year. Ontario-grown peaches are in season, and I’m a big fan of supporting local farmers. Peach season is, for better or worse, the beginning of the end of summer, the harbinger of the autumn harvest – and even faster than our warmest seasons end do they ripen and turn to […]

5 Things About Me

August 12th, 2011

I needed a little break from the world earlier this week. You know the Twitter “over capacity” whale? That’s kind of how I felt. Anyway, I’m back now and no longer whale-y! (I know, that’s not really a word) I love reading other blogs that give you a sense of who the writer is – […]

Lemon Curd Ice Cream

August 7th, 2011

Hello! It’s a rainy Sunday over here, but I haven’t been staying in – I just got back from brunch and window shopping with a group of dear friends. In case it’s as humid and hot where you are as it is here, how about a bit of ice cream? Lemon Curd Ice Cream Juice […]

Mobile Retail, and reason #8 to vote for me!

August 7th, 2011

Until recently, I worked in the retail sector, and as any good curious person should do, I still like to keep up with industry news and see what’s going on. If you’ve been following my Twitter (I’m @heironymuse), you might have seen that this year so far has been a mixed bag of results, with […]
