Crock Pot Savory Pork Tenderloin Stew

Crock Pot Savory Pork Tenderloin Stew is a winter mealtime staple in my household. Actually, any stew is for that matter. We just love stew – period! There is nothing like biting into delicious vegetables, tender meat and hot savory gravy on a cold, damp and dreary day! I do not have a recipe in the typical sense as I create the dish as I go but for you, my dear readers, I have thought about every step that I took and ingredient that I added and created this recipe for you. Enjoy!

Nomad: Rugged iPhone Charging Cables for a Better Charging Experience

Nomad Rugged iPhone Cables

Nomad Rugged CablesMy phone is Apple, my tablet is Apple, even my desktop computer is Apple. Its safe to say that I am a fan of just about all things Apple. One thing I don’t like, however, are the charging cables that come with the iPhone and iPad devices. They never last as long as my phone lasts before upgrading time (about two years), and my iPad cable bit the dust years ago and it now has to share the cable I have for my phone. Another HUGE complaint about the Apple charging cables are the length. The provided cables are barely long enough to reach the night stands beside my bed.

Canvas N Decor – Canadian Made Gallery Wrapped Canvas Prints

Canvas N Decor - Canadian Made Gallery Wrapped Canvas Prints

I love Canvas Prints and I love Calgary. I was born here, raised here, and its home to me. Something I have always wanted for my wall was a Calgary skyline photo, but I’ve never had the extra funds to be able to purchase something that has been professionally framed.  It then occurred to me that the solution could be Gallery Wrapped Canvas Prints which would be affordable and still give me the look that I desired. After doing a little research online, Canvas N Decor stood out to me for three reasons: they are Canadian, they have a wide selection of canvas prints and their prices are really affordable!
