Asian Salmon Burgers

I am one lucky Suzie! I get to eat the likes of these Asian Salmon Burgers as often as I want…and judging by how the first batch went over with the family, I think that will be a lot. You see, I am blessed to have a first class fish slayer (and crab slayer) in the family and a freezer full of sockeye salmon to prove it. This past fishing season in particular was a bumper crop, with the 2014 Fraser River runs splashing in in record numbers.  We were able to hyper-stock the freezer for the winter with this beautiful...

Faux Leather Leggings – It’s All A Blur

Faux Leather Leggings – It’s All A Blur

Yup! It’s official. I’ve been away from blogging so long (how has it been almost a YEAR?!?) it’s all a blur as to how to take a proper picture. This shoot felt really awkward, which is funny since I haven’t exactly stopped taking and posting pictures on Instagram and Facebook! But they have mostly been selfies or foodies with the iPhone. I need to get reacquainted with my beautiful big camera again!  So what the heck has happened in the past year? Well, we moved, I fell on my head and ended up with eight stitches...

UrbanCountryStyle Easter

Easter! Can you believe it’s almost EASTER?! Where has the time gone? Well for me, I know it’s disappeared into a black hole known as our new house and it’s never ending need for attention regarding deficiencies. Every new home or renovation has them, but after 5 years and 5 months of being out of our house, I’ve finally lost patience for dealing with things when all I want to do is enjoy the new digs. So I gave myself a good old check up from the neck up, counted my blessings as I looked around, and decided to...

Sticky Spicy Asian Turkey Meatballs

I had a craving for Asian Turkey Meatballs the other day after seeing this recipe that was floating around on Facebook. I shared it so that I would be able to go back and find it, and after really looking at it I loved the meatball ingredients …but decided I was looking for something with a little more kick for the sauce. So off I went to Pinterest for some Pinspiration (do you FOLLOW US there?). Well I found a wonderful recipe whose sauce looked really kick ass spicy and sweet. Problem was, the meatballs had almond...

Chocolate Bark with Benefits

I have a confession to make…I’ve been hanging out with a bunch of DIETERS…in a secret Facebook group…and I feel like such a cheater…because I’ve been sharing recipes with them and not with Y’all! So I decided to come clean and share this Chocolate Bark with Benefits “recipe” with you. And yes…it’s LEGAL to eat this in my group :) You see, my trainer Shawna asked me to participate in a Beta test of her new Challenge Diet program coming out next month, and...

UCS Artisan Alert – Identity

I’m about to introduce you to Identity. Over the holidays (I know…that was a LONG time ago), I posted a few pics here on the blog, and on Facebook and Instagram that caused quite a stir. Not because of ME, I might add, but because of the pillows and Christmas stockings I was fortunate enough to be given for Christmas by our boy and his Missie. They know me so well… :) (Ignore the dent in the bedding…it’s because of this…) Anyway…I promised...

Camo in the City

Camo in the City

  I don’t know if you remember wayyy back to when I was in New York and I bought new cargos at Superdry. If not, I posted about them here. Well, as any self respecting pair of cargos should be, they are camo (which can sometimes be tricky to style and not look like you’re headed out hunting).  So as I was thinking about how to wear them when I want to up my game a little, I decided  to style a pair over on Polyvore (its my lazy way styling clothes…plus the models on there look better in EVERYTHING). And...

UrbanCountryStyle Members Only Group and Thai Turkey Coconut Curry Soup

UrbanCountryStyle Members Only Group and Thai Turkey Coconut Curry Soup

I posted a Thai Turkey Coconut Curry Soup recipe the other day on our UrbanCountryStyle Members Only page. [That's one of the benefits to being a member. You get access to recipes either first, or exclusively.] Why did I create the UrbanCountryStyle Members Only Group page? Because Facebook decided to change how business pages operate and severely limit the number of people who have already LIKEd the page from seeing it. Where we once used to reach 50-75% of our friends there, now Facebook often will only show the posts to about 5% of you....
