What will we find at LaSalle, Illinois ?

Everytime my recipe goes to a destination I have never been to, I am excited to explore to see what I would put on my itinerary of "things to do".
It didn't take me long to put the Volunteer canal boat on my list. It has all the features I love about living history replicas - right down to the very cool feature of the canal boat being pulled by mules.
Meet the two mules

The boat tour is about an hour long with a commentary of the local history but this video is only 4 minutes long. I enjoyed it very much.

I am happy my Hearty Garden Soup Recipe is now living in LaSalle, Illinois

Thank you.

Ham-Nord, QC is a Village of Living History.

A wonderful Parade of 150 years of history in Ham-Nord, Quebec, Canada
Ham-Nord - Défilé du 150e - 29 juin 2014

It truly is a parade of living history.

I am proud to have one of my recipes go to a community with a strong pride in their history. My recipes are created with family history in mind.
Thank you for purchasing my daughter-inlaw's Rose Petal Jam recipe.

I put this very cool recipe box on my Amazon Wish List because my 4x6 Recipe Postcards will not only fit perfectly but the designs will look fantastic in the clear pink box! Or perhaps you will like the clear plain box.

What is this fruit? Kumquat or what?

We had this discussion at our dinner table and the best we could do was take a wild guess and we decided it probably was a Kumquat.
It didn't take long to learn, once I got back to my computer, that we had been given cape gooseberries, also known as physalis
So then, What is a Kumquat?
