Tackle the slops at Sugarloaf Provincial Park? Hold my wine. Ok, here’s the deal: I hadn’t been skiing since middle school. Without fully giving away my age, middle school was many many moons ago and even back then I wasn’t in the running for the Olympics, if you get my drift. So when I was […]

Valentine’s Day Dinner At Home Menu

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that many of us will be staying in this Valentine’s Day. While take-out is always a great option, you may have reached the point where you know the delivery guys by first, middle and last name (thanks, global pandemic) and are instead leaning towards cooking.

It’s no secret that I like to eat, so when the Murphy Hospitality Group (MHG) approached me with a possible partnership, it was a no-brainer. If you’ve never heard of MHG, here’s a little bit of background: in 1980, owners Kevin Murphy and his wife Kathy opened their first restaurant. Fast forward to today and […]

Oysters from Sim's Corner - Cashmere & Cocktails

Every summer, we load the kids in the car and head to Prince Edward Island. My partner’s family owns a farm in DeSable and a cottage in Brackley, and I’m insanely thankful to have the opportunity to spend time so much time there. My in-laws are also the sweetest people on the planet, and don’t […]

Healthy Dog Treat Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

Over the holidays, I decided to make healthy dog treats. This may seem odd considering I don’t own a dog (for the record, I regularly wish that weren’t the case) but I tend to live vicariously through my friends’ furry critters. Enter Brando and Ollie.
