Chilean wines-a Notable evening!

Wine tasting. I’m not an expert.  But that didn’t stop me from attending a Notable Wine Tasting event recently.  And I had a good time! Check the photos:

I loved this woman’s dress-just in case you were wondering it’s from Banana Republic.

empty glasses are the best kind.....

well look who I bumped into at the tasting! it's @ginnynotweasley!

And an even better photo of her with @marclevy!

Now this is a perfect pairing.....

I had a good time at this event…I learned a lot about Chile and had plenty of wine and some great food to go with it.  Hoping that there will be another Notable event for me to attend!

Have you ever tasted wine from Chile? What’s your favorite wine?

Guess who’s coming to dinner…..The Robbe & Berking event at William Ashley

You may or may not remember a blog post I wrote a while back about the fantastic window displays at William Ashley on Bloor Street.  I had always wondered who was responsible for them and I had a comment show up recently that answered that question.  It was from the designer herself!  That email exchange lead to me asking (of course) if I could speak to her more about her windows, her design, etc.


Canadian Thanksgiving with an American flare…..

One of the ‘perks’ of being an American living in Canada is the fact that I get to celebrate Thanksgiving TWICE!!! Canadian thanksgiving happens a month and a half prior to American Thanksgiving.  I love to cook big holiday meals and that is not going to stop because I am 8 hours away from “home.” So I started my own ‘tradition’ of cooking a Canadian Thanksgiving.   I get all my recipes from Chatelaine magazine-whose October issues always have a pull out recipe section.  This year’s recipes are nothing short of fantastic!
