EAT! Vancouver is a foodie’s heaven. It’s next weekend (June 10th to 12th). I am seriously excited. You should be too.

Vancouver chefs, cookbook authors, artisans, retailers… etc all in one place, offering cooking demos, food & cooking exhibits, yummy things to buy, and my favourite… drumroll please… the Bite of Vancouver, which consists of restaurants throughout the lower mainland offering appetizer size portions from their regular menus for a couple of bucks!

You can, as they say, “come for lunch and stay for dinner”.

Other highlights include wine, beer and spirits tasting (maybe you should take the bus as a precaution…), chef competitions, and a garden pavilion (speaking of gardens – have you SEEN my herb garden?).

And… drumroll again please… I’ve got a pair of free tickets for you!! Yay!

But before that… my herb garden:

See how incredibly not dead it is?! You have my permission to be impressed…

Mothers Day Recipes & A Chocolate Cake Painting Giveaway! – CLOSED

Mother’s Day is this weekend! Are you going to show your love with food? I really think you should. I’ve got inspiration for you. I also have a fabulous giveaway for you! It’s a beautiful painting. A mothers day gift to you, from my own mama! But first, some ideas on how to spoil the woman who raised you. Thinking brunch? How about: rustic potato & caramelized onion tartportobello mushroom eggs benedict

Thinking dessert? How about: chocolate raspberry upside down cakesmarbled lemon cheesecakeraspberry cream piemy mom’s rhubarb cakeupside down banana toffee cake I am blessed with an amazing mom. She is smart, free-spirited, wise, generous, an great listener, and always knows the answer to every one of my problems. She taught me kindness and independence and to believe in my dreams. She is also a crazy talented artist. She finds beauty everywhere, like in flowers that are past their prime, a backyard fish pond, and baby toads. She knows how much you, my friends and readers, mean to me. So while she was in Vancouver recently for a way-too-short visit, she decided to paint you a gift! The giveaway: An original acrylic painting by artist Helen Shideler. (Who was recently accepted into an elite society of artists ranked among the best in Canada and highly regarded throughout the world… I’m allowed to brag about her, right? SO PROUD OF YOU, MOM!) It is a 10″ x 10″ original acrylic painting on canvas from a photo of the most popular recipe on my blog, the Moist Chocolate Cake. It has painted edges (so no frame necessary).
