The Captain's Boil | Etobicoke

Who needs plates? At The Captain's Boil, your lobster, or shrimp, or crab, or whatever sea creature you decide to feast on, comes to your paper-covered table in a steaming hot bag filled with butter, sauces and spices. You open it up and EAT. It's juicy, delicious, messy, and so much fun.


The Captain's Boil is a popular franchise inspired by the Cajun seafood boil. Seafood is freshly caught, boiled up, and served immediately to maximize freshness and tenderness. Oysters to start are a great choice... and no utensils. Joy for seafood lovers and a welcome addition to the west end of the city! Rosie :)

Ice Cream Junction: NOW Scoops 'n More | South Etobicoke

You can still get delicious Kawartha Dairy ice cream in south Etobicoke. Ice Cream Junction is now Scoops 'n More. This spot is popular for serving up delicious premium ice cream at reasonable prices. Kids love all the fun toppings and the impressive candy selection is always a hit. Now we just need warm weather; that's when I start to crave ice cream! Peanut butter chocolate forever! Rosie :)

New Toronto Fish & Chips | Etobicoke

Lots of new eateries have popped up on the Lakeshore in the Mimico/New Toronto/Long Branch area of south Etobicoke, and if you live in this area you know how welcome it is to have a more varied and interesting selection of places to eat. Some of have come and gone (the MELT franchise didn't work out and I never made it to Goodlake) but a few have truly stood the test of time- like DECADES of time- such as New Toronto Fish & Chips. Located just north of the Lakeshore on Fifth Street, this little shop has been cranking out battered seafod faves since the early seventies. It's a great standby for old school golden and crackling fish 'n chips. Halibut, haddock, scallops, shrimp... they'll drop 'em all in hot oil here and it's all delicious. Closed Sundays. Rosie :)

Summer Programs for Kids on the Autism Spectrum

I love this website! "Help We've Got Kids" does exactly that- helps busy parents find resources and information on stuff to do with their little ones. If you have a child on the autism spectrum and you are looking for programs this summer in the Toronto area, check out my post here. Often parents with kids with special needs have a little more of a challenge finding programs tailored to our kids and my family couldn't live without the wonderful people at Kidnastics, Lynne Patch and Under the Umbrella Tree! Bring on summer! Rosie :)

Made in Canada Beanbag Chairs

I love sharing products with you that are not only gorgeous and high-quality but 100% Canadian, so I had to tell you about these amazing beanbags chairs. I know, when you think "beanbag chair" you don't exactly think chic decor. They sort of invoke images of dorm rooms and unshowered teenagers lying around playing video games. Not so the fabulous squishy bags from I was searching for my son's playroom, because our current ones purchased at the now defunct Target do not have removable covers you can throw in the wash. There is enough unidentifiable food particles hardened on them that they needed to go. A good pile of beanbags chairs are perfect for my little guy and his cousins who enjoy flinging themselves everywhere and expect you to stop and drop at any moment for a big snuggle. The chairs from this Montreal-based company are stylish, high quality and have 100% cotton covers that can be zipped off and machine-washed. I ordered this denim one and having spent a sizable amount of hours in beanbag seats, I can safely say it is the perfect beanbag chair.
