As I'm sure you know, home sales will vary from location to location.  What happens in Toronto and Vancouver is NOT what happens in other parts of Canada!Here in the Kingston and 1000 Islands area, our market is quite unique.   I've provided a snapshot of our local home sales for the month of October, 2017.Criteria being:Kingston & 1000 Islands region including South FrontenacSingle Family detached homes only (no condos or multi-family)5 different price bands beginning with $350,000 to $1M plusI define "Real Buyers" as people who actually PURCHASED homes this month! Some Sales will also include furniture or lawn equipment, etc. which can increase the Sale Price over the Listing Price.Days on market will vary in different areas and this is a complilation of all zones in my search criteri...

Canada celebrates Thanksgiving the 2nd Monday of each October.  This year was particularly special for us and we had such a lot to give thanks for!Emo's Eating Emporium was once again the gathering place and, even though we had 4 who couldn't make it, we had a very enjoyable meal and as per our norm, we were able to present a celebratory atmosphere: Even the napkins were folded in "Turkey" style, lolWe served two different turkey dishes:  Red Wine Braised Turkey legs (drumstick & thighs) plus aBacon Weave Turkey Porchetta (dry brined and wrapped around Fennel & fresh Sage).They both cooked to an incredible and flavourful moistness and were well received!My favourite dish of the night was the Southwestern Roasted Rainbow Carrots with Cilantro - YUM YUMThere were also Squashed Red Potatoe...

We went against the norm this year and did without Ham or Turkey for our Christmas Dinner.  Instead I opted for a large Beef Roulade stuffed with garlic, breadcrumbs, ham, raisins, walnuts and parmesan cheese -  OMG was it good!We served it with both buttered noodles and mashed potatoes and Caesar Salad and it was a surefire hit with all.   I wished now we could have it for New Year's Eve too it was THAT good.It almost didn't happen as I was quite ill for the past several days and couldn't stomach the thought or look of food.  My wonderful husband took it on with me talking him through it!We started with a beautiful flank steak from our local Kingston Farm Boy store where the fabulous butcher butterflied it for us so it was nice and thin and ready to be filled. (and provided the twine f...

The time is perfect to take a portion of my tomato harvest and create my much loved Gazpacho!!                                                     A nice assortment of all that was ripe this morning, yellow grape, cherry and a few beefsteak.A few spoonfuls of Red Wine Vinegar and a glop of olive oil over some stale bread and a cheese & jalapeno wrap that was going to be thrown out if not eaten.   All of that gets blended in the food processor.                                                              A cucumber, green onions and some peppers go into the processor and pulsed with some garlic.  Add some salt and pepper and into the fridge it goes to get icy cold!  Garnish and enjoy :)From the kitchen of Emo's Eating Emporium to yours - enjoy the bounty of a container garden!

I love a good Charcuterie Board and/or a tasty Cheese Board.  Nibblies are my go-to favourite when eating out or serving friends and family.  We had a family get-together last weekend and I knew it was going to be far too hot to be slaving over a hot oven or grill so, Voila . . . My husband created a 5 foot by 2 foot butcher block board for us and I had great fun in filling it up with goodies:   A deconstructed Nicoise Salad Smoked SalmonChilled Poached SalmonCured MeatsDried and fresh Fruits & Nuts2 types of Devilled Eggs (family faves)Shrimp HeartsCucumber Cups with Chicken SaladFlatbread and Focaccia BreadProsciutto wrapped bread sticks and loads of crackers and brushettaand for the kid at heart: Cheeseburgers on a stick!We'll probably do this a few more times before the summer is fi...

Canada Day is slowly creeping up on us - July 1st will be here before you know it!Coinciding with its 40th anniversary, a petition was launched in 2009 in the hopes of having the Caesar named Canada's official mixed drink -  it is the perfect drink to celebrate Canada Day and it can be enjoyed with, or without alcohol! The Caesar was invented in 1969 by restaurant manager Walter Chell of the Calgary Inn. Chell said his inspiration came from Italy. He recalled that in Venice, they served Spaghetti alle vongole - spaghetti with tomato sauce and clams!  Basic preparation of a Caesar follows the "one, two, three, four" rule. The recipe calls for 1–1½ oz of vodka, two dashes of hot sauce, three dashes of salt and pepper, four dashes of Worcestershire sauce and topped with 4–6 oz of Clamato J...

Today is the first day of summer and from the weather reports I've seen, it has come in fast and furious!!                                                            Many of you down in the southern states are sweltering in your heat wave but so are we up north.  Yes, Canada gets hit with heat waves too but ours comes with humidity which simply drains you when the air you breathe is WET !! We've been under a heat advisory because, with the humidity our temps were reaching 37°C.In checking the temperature conversion page to see what that was in your money I thought it very funny that it equaled 98.6 Fahrenheit (°F)Wouldn't you think if the air temperature is the same temp as our bodies, that we'd not feel a difference?                                                                      ...

I love it when Super Sellers and Bodacious Buyers come together in a common goal of a happy sale; especially when it involves 2 fabulous Fathers on Father's Day!!Good things come to good people and it was never more true than with these folks.Spending a day on the lake whilst waiting for a home inspection to be completed couldn't have been better.  Sunshine, breezes and good company made it all worthwhile.  Attaching the SOLD sign was the icing on the cake and it was such fun having the Buyers there to capture a photo!So Sassy Tree Lane on Desert Lake in South Frontenac is now officially SOLD and I'm wondering WHO WANTS TO BE NEXT?Who thinks their front lawn would look better with my SOLD SIGN on it?Get in touch with Susan Emo and together we'll make magic happen !

We're heading into our first long weekend of the Season and my mind is whirling with all the possibilities for picnics and lazy lunches on the deck.  The first is always the best in my mind so I always look for something new and different to throw in with the traditional favourites! There is something about this fresh Radish with Beet and Shrimp Salad that is just screaming at me!!! With so many varieties of Radish and Beets available now, you can go hog wild and add in whatever variety strikes your fancy (I took this photo at the market in Ottawa last year!)  . . .  what you'll need is:  2 pounds peeled, large raw shrimp 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided 4-ounces watermelon radish, cut into fourths and...
