Port Coquitlam Show & Shine

Today me and my fam jam hit up the Port Coquitlam Show & Shine and envied all the cool, classic cars.  Apparently I am a Chevrolet girl.  I loved all the Corvettes!

But what the heck PoCo…where were all the pin-up girls!?  I would have loved to pose beside some of these babies!  IMG_0881.JPG

Vancouver Chinatown Festival, Golden Dumpling Cook Off & Dumpling Derby 2014

This past weekend some of our family and friends went downtown for the 2014 Vancouver Chinatown Festival, Golden Dumpling Cook Off & Dumpling Derby.  It was so much fun.  My husband and I got the “dumpling passports” which allowed us to sample twenty different dumplings from a variety of Vancouver restaurants.  There were Asian, Italian, Mexican and even Indian inspired dumplings.

I even got to meet Chef Vikram from Vij’s (a popular Vancouver Indian restaurant).

My husband, Adam, was a trooper and also tried to compete in the dumpling derby (a 2 minute all you can eat dumpling competition).  Needless to say, he didn’t win.  His strategy of prepping for the competition by sampling 20 dumplings prior didn’t really pay off. Haha!  However, he still looked awfully cute in his dumpling bib.IMG_0654-0.JPG

Canada Day & Strawberry Cake

I’ve been away from my blog for far too long!  But I have excuses…my little girl Audrey is keeping me plenty busy.  She’s 9 months old now and seriously going to walk any time.  I’ve also been taking on a lot more writing projects.  Regardless…I’ve still been eating plenty of delicious food!

On Canada Day we went to my cousin and her boyfriend’s house just off Commercial Drive in Vancouver.  It was a gorgeous day!  It was a potluck and I wanted to bring something Canada Day themed so after scouring my favourite food blog, Smitten Kitchen, for ideas I made a delicious Strawberry Cake. Yumm!

Happy Canada Day!!
