Hands for Husking....a girl goes west!

Living in Caledon, life with things like tractor pulls, fall fairs and local corn roasts just becomes a part of everyday life. These events are usually benchmarks of the seasons that we live with. Caledon is an enigma of a community. It is where urban meets rural, golf tees butt up against cow farms and the Forks of the Credit is not a restaurant but rather one of the most popular viewing spots in all of Ontario for the fall colours. Caledon boasts ownership of such landmarks as the Oak Ridges moraine, the Niagara Escarpment and one of my personal fave spots, the Badlands. How can you not love a community with a spot called the Badlands?

Candy Dandy Palooza, Flourgate & Nutella Cake!

If you should be smart enough to spend an evening dining at The Big Ragu then be sure to ask the waitress for a drink called the Candy Dandy Palooza! Chef/Owner Carmine (pronounce that Car-meeeeeen-ay) Accogli (the G is silent) is a proud daddy to his delightful daughter, Amelie. Amelie is often seen hanging out in the restaurant until her Mother, Barb, one of the best cake makers this side of the Great Lakes, called CakeStar picks her up. I just happen to run in to them last night

Friday Night Rights!

Friday nights doesn't get any better than this! A quick stop at the Cheese Boutique and the end result is we find ourselves on our back deck laden with food treasures. Thunder Oak, Fifth Town, Smoked Applewood Cheddar, Riopelle, Serrano Ham, olives, duck pate, baguette and most importantly lots to imbibe with. This is Friday night right.
