Philly Style Vanilla Ice Cream

Summer is in full swing and fresh Ontario strawberries are here for the taking.  I thought about recipe ideas but really, who wants to cook gorgeous fresh fruit?  Serving it with homemade ice cream is perfection itself.  Philadelphia style ice cream contains no eggs for a lighter taste that… Continue

Looking Back: Our first night in Leslieville (let the demolition begin)


Ah, memories.

I still vividly remember the evening my husband and I took possession of our first home.  It was a Friday night in late September, 2009.  A BEAUTIFUL night.   We scurried around town all afternoon finalizing the close, heading to the lawyers office to pick up the keys, until we finally found ourselves excitedly driving up our street at about 6pm for the first time as new home-owners.  And we weren't just home owners.  We were home-owners in Leslieville.…

To enclose, or not to enclose, that is the question

The "east-end semi" is a housing type that we all know and love.  Yes, all our houses may look very similar (with the exception of a few bungalows and detached homes smattered throughout), however, each one is so unique, inside and out.  That's one of the things I love most about our neighborhood.  Every house you go into has a different tweak to the look. the layout, or the style.


When Christian and I began contemplating our next "big" renovation project (yes, I know I have…

Share the Leslieville Love With Travellers (Part One)

You know I love Leslieville.  But sometimes a girl's gotta get away.  Ian and I love to travel, and we try to take 3-4 trips a year.  It can be an expensive habit, but we've figured out a couple ways to knock the cost down.  

We've discovered that a lot of people want to visit Toronto, and Leslieville in particular (must be that…

One year later....a garden full of blooms!

For those of you who have checked out my first post, you'll know that my husband and I have nearly two years of renovation, decorating and DIY stories to share (not to mention the whole planning-a-wedding in between thing...more on that another time).  The most difficult part for me right now is deciding which stories to share...and in what order!  So, if you're reading this, and you have…

Mercury Espresso Bar

   “We wanted to open a coffee shop that played kick-ass music and served kick-ass coffee; a shop that we’d want to hang out in ourselves,’ echo Matthew Taylor and Douglas Tiller, partners in Mercury Espresso Bar.

Leslieville Local Business Marketing - 10 ways to use

Posted by Nolin (Admin) on February 3, 2011 at 12:00pm 4 Comments

When I launched this site in early 2009, one of the compelling reasons for doing so was that I was struck by how many of the businesses in Leslieville are locally owned and operated.  Another big observation was (and still is) how proud most…
