I’m a busy mom of two, wife & cookbook author who loves creating fast, fresh meals for my little family on the Canadian prairies. Karlynn Facts: I'm allergic to broccoli. I've never met a cocktail that I didn't like. I would rather burn down my house than clean it. Most of all, I love helping YOU get dinner ready because there's nothing more important than connecting with our loved ones around the dinner table!

    I know. You love it almost as much as it loves you.

    So awesome. You almost look sane.

  2. Mindy says

    You live here because I live here and you can’t stand the thought of being away from me.

    Is that photo of you and the “magpie family” new? I haven’t seen it before and I love it.

    • Karlynn says

      True and I can’t stand the thought of leaving my place of employment either 😉

      Beckie shot that picture Christmas ’09, it’s one of my favorites.

    Just think how much more hot cocoa you can enjoy, though!

    • Karlynn says

      True, true, that IS a happy way to look at it. I can console myself with that thought.

      However that means you can’t possibly live here, am I correct? 🙂 And if you do live here, you are a much cheerier person than I am!
