Where’s the beef?

Whatever the cut, I like to sprinkle Montreal steak spices on my beef. Today, I was preparing my tournedos, making sure to put enough to get this nice BBQ taste, when I wondered… Do this spice melange exist outside Québec?   It is really really common here, but has it spread elsewhere? Did we hold…… Continue reading Where’s the beef?

So young and pretty…

A new love story…

I knew there was something going on. Mother Nature was a bit (being polite here) up and down the past few years, but this Winter, she went c.r.a.z.y!

What? – Reacting to the White House’s condolences…

Pinch yourself! No you’re not dreaming… I don’t usually discuss politics… I have my opinions, but I don’t follow the subject enough to engage in discussions and debates about this or that matter, I leave that to those who like to follow Provincial, National and International politics… I especially don’t know much about American politics.…… Continue reading What? – Reacting to the White House’s condolences…
