Lunatic Loves | November Edition

November Recap from Cravings of a Lunatic

November was fabulous. Looking forward to a fun-filled December! November comes to a close, and December looms. I am not a big fan of the cold weather that comes with December. I love being a Canuck, but I need to be honest here, I hate winter. I feel like I was born in the wrong place. Somehow I think I was misplaced from Hawaii. Life man, it's just not fair some days. The one good thing about cold weather is cold weather food. I tend to do a ton of roasting and braising. I adore anything … [Read more...]

Recipes by Cravings of a Lunatic

Happy May! Spring is in the air... hopefully that means no more snow.... but I'm in Canada so one never knows. It's that time of year where the furnace can be on at night, then the a/c on during the day. I think the hydro and gas companies are conspiring against us Canucks and bribing Mother Nature. What... it could happen.   So let me fill you in on what's been happening at the B household.... … [Read more...]

Cravings of a Lunatic Recipes

  Today I get to share recipes I've made over the last two weeks. A little recap of what's been happening here at the B household. I've been playing around with meyer lemons after hubs brought home a few bags. You would think three bags would be enough to make me happy. I only have 2 lemons left and asked hubs to hit the jackpot again on his way home from working out of town. This trip was a swing and a miss. Two stores, no meyers. I am seriously sad. Hopefully we can find some more … [Read more...]

Lunatic Loves Feb 20 Happy Birthday Bro!

Valentine's Day Recipe from Cravings of a Lunatic

The first thing I'd like to do today is wish my older Bro a very Happy Birthday! For one month each year we are the same age. To the day actually. Our family has a thing with the number 20. Actually all 20's. We've got three 20's, one 21, one 22, one 24, one 27 and one 29. Wild right. My dad was the only one not born with a twenty something number. Anyhow, Happy Birthday Mister Magoo! Hope you party hard and have an amazing day! … [Read more...]

Happy Wednesday! I love Wednesdays. Wednesdays is Supernatural day. It's Sam and Dean day. My favourite day of the week. Pretty boys. Then pretty food. Ah, life is good. I had all kinds of things planned for you this week. It was supposed to be my week to buckle down and get caught up on some things. Hubs was going to be home for almost 4 days straight which is rare. So I made all kinds of plans and then hubs came home from his job, out-of-town, wicked sick. I mean wicked, horrible, ugly … [Read more...]

I normally don't yell in caps but today I'm making an exception! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BEST FRIEND JEANINE! Hope you have an awesome day! You deserve it. So glad you challenged me to a hula hoop contest all those years ago. Almost forty years later and only one fight, I think we're doing pretty well. See, ladies of The Real Housewives of Everywhere, women can be friends and not rip each other to shreds every other other day. True story, put that one TV. Okay so no one would watch but still, … [Read more...]

Happy Graduation to B-Dude and Lunatic Loves These Links June 19


So last week my son graduated from University. Again! *sorry B, had to do it!* The photo above is from his first 4 years. Last week he received his Masters in Creative Writing. He will be off to Calgary in September to work on PHD, also in Creative Writing. At this point I think his career is Professional Student. But it's all good because he's doing what he loves to do. I always told my kids to pick a career they love to bits. If you have to do something every day for the rest of your life you … [Read more...]

Lunatic Loves These Links- Dec 1st


Hi folks. Another week flew by. I was hoping to get some extra posts up but it seems the blogging gods do not want me to be productive these days. In the past two weeks my time keeps getting stolen by other things. Life right! What are you going to do. I thought after "Miss Steals Other People's Photos" went away I'd be back to business as usual. Since then we have had to battle the weevilgeddon and a flooded basement.  I swear aren't bugs and flooding sign of the apocalypse? Seriously? I need … [Read more...]
