Say What?!!
No way!

The hit series "The Real Housewives of..." will be coming to VANCOUVER, B.C. Canada!
Yes you heard right, The intense drama of the 'Real Housewives' franchise are coming to Canada -- more specifically, to the west coast city of Vancouver. 
I first heard a little while ago that the show was coming to Toronto..
But after all it looks like the series will launch in British Columbia. According to Shaw Media, the show is set to air on Canada's female-geared reality channel, Slice.

It was first announced yesterday at the network’s upfronts (where TV schedules are presented to potential advertisers), the Real Housewives of Vancouver will air on the Slice network likely within the year.
I'm so excited to watch it!
I have been a fan of the very first of the series which began on Bravo in 2006 "The Real Housewives of Orange County".
Which the show is still on the air, it has grown to an international hit with six other stops across the U.S. as well as shows in Greece and Israel

The episodes follow the lives of usually very rich, ambitious and opinionated women as they live fabulous lives full of private jets, private resorts and private information made public.
The shows, which Bravo reports to be the most popular lifestyle programming in the world, are full of glitz, glam and drama as the wives, whether they are in California or Miami they have one thing in common: they aren’t afraid to speak their minds and show their designer claws.
It will be fun a show this big in Vancouver!
Would you tuning in to watch the 'Real Housewives of Vancouver'?
I will!

Hey Lovelies!
This is a delicious recipe called "Triple-Threat Coconut Cream Pie" I used a egg replacer instead of eggs & it still turned out FABULOUS!
Its got a little Vitamin A & Calcium & A Tiny Iron! YAY!
Try it yourselves!
Heres how to make it!:

Try this version of an all-time favorite coconut pie! It certainly made the grade at a state fair pie competition.
Prep Time: 40 Min
Total Time: 3 Hr 45 Min
Makes: 8

Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crust, softened as directed on box
can (13 1/2 oz) coconut milk, shaken well
cup plus 1 tablespoon sweetened shredded or flaked coconut, toasted
cup whole milk
vanilla bean, split (or 1 teaspoon vanilla)
cup sugar
teaspoon salt
large egg yolks
cup cornstarch
teaspoon coconut extract
tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into four pieces

1 1/2
cups heavy whipping cream, well chilled
1 1/2
tablespoons sugar
teaspoons dark rum (or 1 teaspoon vanilla)
cup sweetened shredded or flaked coconut, toasted
oz white chocolate, shaved

  • Heat oven to 450°F.
  • Unroll pie crust onto cooking parchment or wax paper. Brush a small amount of coconut milk onto dough (just enough to moisten it). Sprinkle 1/2 tablespoon of the toasted coconut evenly on dough, then press it lightly into dough, just enough to make it stick.
  • Sprinkle 1/2 tablespoon toasted coconut onto bottom of 9-inch pie plate, then form dough into plate. Prick bottom and side with fork. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until light brown. Cool.
  • Heat the remaining coconut milk, the whole milk, 1/2 cup toasted coconut, vanilla bean, 1/3 cup of the sugar and the salt to a simmer in 2-quart saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon, about 5 minutes to dissolve sugar.
  • In a separate large bowl, with whisk, beat the egg yolks, remaining 1/3 cup sugar and the cornstarch until well combined. Gradually beat the simmering liquid into the yolk mixture to temper it, then return the entire mixture to saucepan, scraping the bowl with a rubber spatula. Discard vanilla bean.
  • Heat the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, beating constantly with whisk, 5 to 6 minutes or until mixture is thickened.
  • Remove from heat; beat in the coconut extract and butter. Pour into the cooled crust; press a sheet of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the filling and refrigerate until the filling is cold and firm, at least 3 hours or overnight.
  • Just before serving, beat the cream and sugar in a chilled bowl using electric mixer at medium speed until soft peaks form. Add the rum and continue to beat until slightly stiff peaks are formed. Spread or pipe the whipped cream over the chilled filling. Sprinkle 1/4 cup toasted coconut and shaved chocolate over the top. Store in refrigerator.
