I have to say … 


I LOVED everything about the *last* episode of

I loved filming it … I loved talking about it … I loved eating … EVERYTHING … and I especially loved watching the episode.

It made me giggle.  And it kinda made me hungry.  I mean … come on! 

First off … you should know that I HEART Trish Larkin.  I think she’s the bestest. 

I also think she makes a ridiculously tasty burger … 8 ounces of perfectly grilled love; sandwiched between the perfect bun, and topped with bacon, cheese, boston lettuce, tomato, red onion and … who can forget the mayo????

Remember … “if you bring homemade mayo to the party … you’ll impress everyone!”

You should have seen all of us (the volunteers, Todd and I) when Trish plated the burger and fries.

We were GIDDY. 

Because not only did it look and smell delicious … it tasted GOOD.  And I mean “jump around with happiness” kinda good!

(I have to admit … the BEST part of filming that day was that as soon as Trish finished making the burger and fries, our “lunch” arrived … and it was burgers too!  Let’s just say …Trish’s black cat bistro burger knocked the other one out of the park.)

The show then went from ground beef and burgers to making tartar (and a zucchini salad).

Mother of pearl.


First off … Ryan Mesheau is handsome.  And funny.  And super nice.  And can cook.

Heck ya!

Like I said on the show … some people know him as Mr. Rachelle Eats Food – his wife Rachelle, has this awesome blog, rachelleeatsfood and his meals are regularly featured on her blog.

He walked us through making the tartar (he certainly reminded me that it’s nothing to be afraid of … or an expensive dish to try), and making the zucchini salad … which was prefect.  It was fresh and light … a little lemony and just perfectly played off the richness of the tartar.

Every single one of us on the set dug into that dish.  There was nothing left when we were done with it.

It was awesome.

If you missed the episode on Sunday night … and the replay on Monday and Wednesday … you are in luck!  You can tune in on Saturday at 1 pm to RogersTV 22.
