Hello, I’m Diana!  Born and raised in Vancouver, BC, and currently living in Moose Jaw, SK.  I’m here to join my partner in crime, Rock, who hails from Saguenay, Quebec.  I love travelling (30+ countries and counting!), shamelessly reading celebrity gossip, and cooking.  You can find out more about me here.  Rock is passionate about anything to do with aviation, Star Wars, and building things.  Joining us as of November 2014 is our son, A.

I spend a lot of time thinking about what I’d like to eat next and that’s not so great in a place like Moose Jaw where we have pretty limited dining options.  I had always enjoyed blogging about travelling and living abroad and so I decided to start this blog as a bit of fun and to motivate myself to try and cook new things instead of just wishing I could eat them.  Rock soon joined in and has since fallen in love with baking. (His are the charmingly ESL posts.). We post both original recipes (usually when I want to recreate something that I’ve eaten before exactly) as well as recipes we find from our ever growing collection of cookbooks or from online.  I occasionally toy with the idea of taking nice staged photos of our food with good lighting and my proper camera but since we’re cooking to eat, I usually just take photos with my iPad. We wanna dig in!  I’m sure you understand.

Initially, I thought it’d be cool if just some of my friends and a few interested people in Moose Jaw would read this blog.  But we’ve had visitors from over 75 countries (!!!) and have people checking out this blog every single day.  I hope you enjoy our blog and join us as we cook our way through our time in the prairies.  Any comments, ideas, or tips are more than welcome!

Also, check out my blog about our travels with A at bebe travel diaries.

  4. Whoa. After searching for Tommy burrito I came across your website. I live in Moose Jaw now, but used to work at a Steamrollers in Vancouver. Ate the Tommy like 3-4 times a week and NEVER got sick of it. Still make them all the time at home!
