Hey Ho Let’s Go To Canada!

Photo by Jacky Huang on Unsplash Canada – wildlife, the nicest people you can find, a mix of languages and of course all of that fantastic scenery. So if you are planning on taking a vacay any time soon, or in the future, then you might want to consider Canada.  Manitoba You might’ve heard about an island in Sweden that has more polar bears than people, but did you know that you can get up close(ish) to a polar bear in Manitoba.

Thank you Edwards® Desserts for sponsoring this post. Head to the frozen desserts aisle of your grocery store to pick up your favorite Edwards pie! I have a confession to make, and I don’t want to be judged or receive angry fan mail. Okay, here I go… I’m sick of ice cream!

However with the scorching heat continuing to linger, I still crave a refreshing treat. So, I have come up with an alternative to ice cream. Edwards …

Jalapeño Cornbread Bites + Heluva Good! Dip

Thank you Heluva Good! for sponsoring this post. For those of you who do not already know, I live in Texas. And if you know anything about August in Texas, then you know that I am literally living in an oven. No joke, it is 106°F outside as I type this…. at 9 in the morning. When I walk outside, I feel personally attacked by Mother Nature. So there is nothing like sitting in a chilly, air conditioned room on a sweltering summer day and munching on a delicious treat. Seriously, with my scrumptious Jalapeño Cornbread Bites recipe and Heluva …
