the (almost perfect) banana bread

I place the banana bread in the oven and flick the oven light on so I can see it through the little window. “That wasn’t so complicated,” I think to myself. I start to pack away the ingredients and then it hits me. I forgot the vanilla. “THE VANILLAAAA! Jeremy, I FORGOT THE VANILLA!” I scream, feeling a little let down that the banana bread won’t be “perfect”. I can hear him get up from his chair, half-laughing. He meets…

“I re-watched Sideways recently, so I’ve got this,” I said to a friend days before we set out to tour the wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake.

I was also fortunate enough to try their smokey-Sriracha bacon which is fantastic. If you love yourself some unique carnivorous treats, MeatVentures will not disappoint. This is not your average food cart – no hot dog in sight! Watch for MeatVentures Meat Wagon at your local events – trust…
