Crabby Joe’s Review

Crabby Joe’s Review: It was decent, the ambiance was sports bar like but for $25 per person +Tax & Tip, and a pre-prepared non-fresh taste plus nothing gluten free & dairy for the hubby (other than salad or steak, or other things that weren’t of interest) it wasn’t anything to go back for.

Presidents Choice PC Brussels Sprouts

Review: Presidents Choice PC Baby Brussels Sprouts Frozen

I was pleasantly surprised by these Presidents Choice PC Small Sweet Peas. Needing a quick side to an evening meal I tossed these into the grocery cart (along with the PC small sweet peas and a bag or two of Asian vegetables), threw them in a pot when I got home and voila they were done, lovely and delicious.

Curly Fry Recipe | How to Make Curly Fries

How to Make Curly Fries: I was being lazy one evening, and mostly busy, thus didn’t feel particularly like peeling potatoes. As I’m washing them, I look up and spot my sturdy hand cranked apple peeler/corer/slicer on the wall… hmmm… what the heck… so I plop one of those suckers on and voila! Curly fry heavenliness! We didn’t want all the fat of deep frying (or the mess), therefore, we baked them, just like we do our wedge fries.

This is our recipe…
