Mediocre Madison's Grill

Madison's Grill is one of those places people in #yeg automatically list off when someone asks for a nice place to take someone on a special occasion, out of town guests, or if they are looking to impress someone. It had been a few years since my humans last dined here, back in the days my humans were still dating and trying to impress each other, and long before they started taking me places. So I had never been here and wanted to see what all the fuss was about.

Marlow's Mootreats - ie. Christmas/Holiday Baking

So many mootreats to deliver!
With the holidays upon us, I’ve been a busy bovine baking up a storm! I don’t usually have a lot of time or energy to bake, but I really do enjoy it! Especially since I am horrible at cooking, that is if you call starting frying pan fires horrible. Baking seems to be the only type of domestic task I can manage.

Below you’ll find some of my favorite recipes and they’re all pretty easy and quick to make! Everyone seems to enjoy them and although hoof made treats can take some work, it’s rewarding to watch people enjoying them.

Butter Chicken - A Lesson in Indian Cooking with @MichPetersJones

@Michpetersjones on MasterChef UK
I had been asking @michpetersjones of Food, Football and a Baby blog, to see the episodes of MasterChef UK she was on. She was on twice, first in Series 4, then as a comeback contestant on Series 5, and both times making it to the quarter finals!

After much peer pressure, she relented to letting us come over to watch the episodes, as well as teaching us to make butter chicken. That is how mooself, @bigaddie and @MirabelleMacs wound up at the home of @michpetersjones on a snowy Sunday afternoon. If you've seen a lot of activity on Twitter today under the hashtag #yegCurry, that's because mooself and @bigaddie were live tweeting about the process as we went along.

Rigoletto's Cafe - A YEG Classic

Dangles, Bucky and Moo
Once located in the old Corona building prior to being demolished, Rigoletto's Cafe has long held a place in Edmontonians hearts. Luckily, they were able to find a new space not too far from their original location.

Stopping by with my pal Dangles and Bucky for lunch on a Thursday, the place was packed to the rafters. Not having had the foresight to make a reservation, we had to settle for a seat at the bar. Rigolletto's offers a variety of Italian fare, from the classic bruschetta to their very own signature creations such as Angel Hair Sergio.

Tutti Frutti Froyo Delight

These cups are the size of my head
Although I'm a fairly new fan of frozen yogurt, one of the things that seemed to be lacking are soft serve frozen yogurts with natural tasting flavors. So when Angela Seto of Tutti Frutti invited me to try what they had to offer, how was a bovine to say no?
