Got a lot of blackberries? Then check out this recipe for Blackberry Mojito Fruit Leather.

I'm not a huge fan of fruit leathers, but this turned out super good! And, really, you can't go wrong with blackberries, mint and rum.

CC in the National Post

National PostHappy Birthday to me!

I've got a few exciting things to announce today.

First, one of my blog posts was picked up in the column Sense and Sustainability in The National Post:

The Green Gender Gap: Peak oil response is a case of he said, she said.

It is based on my blog post, Peak Oil - instinctual reactions.

Second, and much more exciting news, my husband came home from the hospital last night! We pretty much begged to have him released early and so they set it up so he can get his treatments from home instead of doing it in-patient.

So, hopefully we can keep him out as he recovers from his stem cell transplant.

Hooray!
