Photo sampler…

Deep. Fried. Oreos. Well, generic Oreos.

I picked up a deep  fryer a little while back to try some amazing French Fries.  Since then I have used it a few times.  Each time the wrath from my wife about the smell grew larger. This time I have decided to cook outside.  It was a nice day so why not.

Niagara Food Festival – please roll me home…

What a great festival this was again this year! There were some new vendors this year that I was not expecting to see, and others that I was sad to not see there.

Sadly I was a bit too busy eating to take photos this year but I did get enough to warrant a post lol 🙂

Easy like Sunday morning breakfast

Went to the market yesterday. Picked up a fresh loaf of pumpernickel bread from the good folks at Spinoza’s.

Also stopped by our local butcher for some super fresh bacon. Bacon.

The eggs are from a lady at the karate school my son goes to.

Truly a farm to table breakfast.

Dain City Family Day 2014

This year was like no other and the Labor Day weekend ended off with a bang!

The day was filled with fun and wrapped up with an amazing fireworks display.

Have a look at the video I put together with some footage and photos I took.

The video in this video was taken with a GoPro that was placed just about 14 feet from where the fireworks are being launched. So basically looking straight up. Most times you see fireworks from a distance and this will change your whole perspective.  And the still images in the video were taken with a Canon DSLR. Unedited.  #GoPro should make this a video of the day.

Make sure you watch in 1080p.

  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • a crap load of bacon
  • 4 eggs
  • tiny whisk
  • a few bowls

Dain City French Toast

There is a small town in Ontario that I frequent from time to time.  Dain City.  Had some French Toast there once.  This is the story of that French Toast.

Here is what you need to make these sick French  Toasts.

  • 2 cups of milk
  • 3 eggs
  • a few tablespoons of cinnamon
  • an awesome stick of bread that is about 2 days old (mine was courtesy of Lucas at Spinosa’s for the Spinosa Stick)
  • tiny whisk
  • bowl
  • frying pan
  • maybe some things i forgot but will remember as we go on….

Lay it out all nice on a cutting board and admire it. Maybe take a selfie with the ingredients and post them in the comments.

Niagara Craft Beer Festival

Had no real plans to stop by this event but hunger drew us in.  Having just went to a Motorcycle Show & Shine, then a Custom Car show we sort of worked up an appetite.

Geographically there was not much around but I remembered about the Craft Beer Festival that a few of my friends had talked about.

  • It was downtown.
  • It had beer.
  • It had food.
  • It had an admission.

At the gate I mentioned I was writing for a Lifestyle blog.   The doors swung open for us.  Excellent.

Canadian Coke Churros

Holy crap.

These were amazing. My first thought when i saw what these were called I was, “what the crap is that?”

The slight difference is that the recipe i hijacked and modified this from used Mexican Coke. Can’t get that in Canada.

Let’s get to it.

What do you need?

  • 3 cups of Coca-Cola from Canada
  • 6 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of Vanilla
  • 3.25 cups of Bisquick

I think that is it.

So first thing you want to do is boil 3 cups of Coke.
