Big Day in Downtown Halifax, Part 3

By sduffett, on Thu, 14 Oct 2010 | 0 Comments

Thanks to the genius people at the Downtown Halifax Business Commission, I was given $100 to spend as I liked in downtown Halifax.  Nice huh? 29 other lucky bloggers were also given the same opportunity and you can read about their adventures here. I decided to visit the south end of Barrington Street for the final part of my adventure in downtown Halifax.

Thanksgiving Weekend - a tale of two rides

By dkmorris, on Tue, 12 Oct 2010 | 0 Comments

It is always fascinating to see how flour was originally milled instead of a loaf just appearing in the supermarket. The sound of the waterfalls and waterwheel made for a great noisy arrival and backdrop for face painting, balloon animals, barbeque and wagon rides. The horses Lady and Kate pulled us on a tour around the fields and back to the mill.

Barrington Woolen Mill - Cape Sable Island - Cape Forchu - Gilbert's Cove - Digby - Brier Island - Balancing Rock - Bear River - Kejimkujik National Park

The bad weather confined us within the next few days, while we passed the old Woolen Mill in Barrington, it was still dry but suddenly heavy rain poured down and made our bird watching tour at Cape Sable Island impossible, heavy fog covered the lighthouse at Cape Forchu but just a few hours later Gilbert's Cove Lighthouse showed up in a few shafts of sunlight and the evening at Digby promised nicer weather for the next day. Along with sun we drove to Westport at Brier Island, but arrived there - again fog was against us and took away all chances to see any whales here as our tour was cancelled.

Corn Chowdah ReMiXeD & ReInVeNtEd

By jswift, on Wed, 6 Oct 2010 | 0 Comments

During a trip to the Dartmouth Farmers' Market a couple of weeks ago, fresh valley grown corn was plentiful - what better time to test this recipe! Corn Chowder can be made any time of year, but why not take advantage of ingredients at their freshest. Corn is harvested in Nova Scotia August through October, so if you're local, now is a great time to give this recipe a whirl.

Mama's Little Rhubarb

By jswift, on Mon, 4 Oct 2010 | 0 Comments

Lunenburg's Magnolia's Café has a secret weapon - Rhubarb Relish! If you're not from Nova Scotia's South Shore, you're probably thinking - Rhubarb? - Relish? - Wha? Oh yeah, you read it correctly - fishcakes aren't fishcakes without Rhubarb Relish. Its sweet and tangy flavor is the perfect compliment to any type of white fish based dish. After years of eating fishcakes and rhubarb relish at Magnolia's Grill, the time had come to attempt to duplicate this delicious delight. After researching recipes a bit, we felt that the Dutch Oven recipe seemed to be a good bet.
