Travels to the East Coast

Heading out to fish

Lone player, Halifax

My Aunt's famous white chocolate cheesecake - recipe forever a secret;)
I've taken a writing and cooking hiatus. In its place is a new love of chowder. Just returned from a week in Nova Scotia. Beautiful place, lovely people, colourful landscapes and fantastic seafood. I had my fill of chowder, lobster rolls, moussaka & dolmades & white chocolate cheesecake (family recipes), mussels, grilled calamari, a greasy spoon breakfast sandwich, the best peanut butter cookies in Mahone Bay, crab bisque, scallops and some Nova Scotian wine. The only thing I snapped photos of before eating was the cheesecake. Sorry 'bout that!
