Saskatoon is a city with a unique identity. Culturally, geographically – there is no place…
“It should take us about an hour and it’s mostly flat, paved trails.” Those were…
Saskatoon has been ramping up its public art in a major way lately, specifically when it comes to murals. I’m sure there’s more than double this many new larger-than-life pieces this year but I went out and captured a few notable new ones for you. Kudos to the artists and funding organizations for recognizing the importance of public art in a city, and helping to bring some of the big boring walls to life.
I was prepared to enjoy myself, but I’ll be honest: I had doubts about mustard in cheesecake.
I was wrong.
It was delicious – all of it was delicious. Summer bean salad with maple mustard dressing and roasted cashews. Whole roasted pork loin with dijon Brussels sprouts. Mustard cheesecake with rosemary honey. And what made it even better was the satisfaction of having made it ourselves.
Fall makes me feel good. Hot days, crisp nights, all the colours in the trees, the northern lights… It’s the best. I want to let you in on one of my (and so many other peoples’) favourite things to do in fall: a Valley Road day.
I was really excited when one of my dearest friends decided to visit me in Saskatoon this summer, all the way from Bali Indonesia.
She and I have laughed, cried and tried to solve the world’s problems over drinks throughout the years, from yukaflux during our college years to warm cups of luwak coffee in the Balinese sun this past November. So I thought it would be fitting for her first time in Saskatoon, to tour the city over drinks, getting to know a few of our cool neighbourhoods and hangouts, while catching up during her short stay.
Saskatoon has a bit of a reputation for going festival crazy in the summer months. There are multiple festivals every weekend June through August and now it looks like the same can be said for September!
I didn’t know much about Saskatoon before this trip. I knew that it was one of the biggest hubs of agriculture in Canada and that is pretty much it. A couple days before taking the flight, I opened Instagram and tried to find as many places as I could via the search section. I saved two coffee shops, an ice-cream parlour and some restaurants that I thought might be nice to try.
In June I went on an epic 43 kilometre overnight paddleboarding adventure along the Chief Whitecap Waterway starting at the Dakota Dunes First Nation. The CWW is also part of the Trans Canada Trail system.
