    I almost wrote “without further adieu” on my blog but it felt wrong…. although I say clean up the internet! Bring on the grammar police! ;)

    I haven’t seen that statue.. I must track it down before I move. :)

    Hahaha there have been times when I was in a hurry and completely butchered something up too! :P But usually I catch myself WAY after the fact. I’m a big sucker for spelling things right too, and I think most people who learn English as their 2nd/3rd language are~! Maybe I should hire you to prevent future humiliation for myself. :)

    And oh dearrrr these look so delicious! They look so perfectly rich and bite-sized that I want to take them off the screen. Have a happy new year Hannah, and I hope you get to reach all your dreams this year and grow in every area of your life. <3

    Oh dear I’m with you on the egregious spelling/grammatical errors! Please tell me if I’m guilty!

    Anyway, Happy New Year to you; I look forward to reading about many more adventures and delightful kitchen creations. Funnily enough, I spent my New Year’s Eve at the Tranzac (Australia New Zealand Club of Toronto, I believe) – have you been? It’s a neat place.

    Chocolate-peanut butter-crunchy-soft-and-sweet! Yes, I also went this route for a picnic 3 days ago.

    Peaking and baring often have me in all sorts of discomfort, but “enlies”?! That is new to me. It is hilariously devine (sic).

    Puppy Chow. Strange name for sure…. sounds deliciously evil ;)

    Your talking red panda aside reminds me of a conversation Andy and I had last week. Somehow we went from deciding to plant bamboo behind our shed to saying that maybe when the bamboo grows we’ll get a panda. Andy said if we had a panda he would milk it. Then we proceeded to decide on the best uses for panda milk. Aside from being not vegan at all, I recognise how weird that all was, but I thought I would share, and hopefully you’ll giggle instead of getting weirded out by me!

  7. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Oh gosh. Now I feel even worse about that incorrect apostrophe.

  8. The Healthy Apple

    Mmmm this sounds amazing! Such a great idea for a yummy sweet treat. Happy New Year!

  9. Nic@diningwithastud

    I still cant get over the puppy chow name. For years I thought it was an actual pet treat until someone told me recently what it actually was. Those crazy Americans ;)
    Happy New Year Hannah :D

  10. Ames

    That is such a quirky name for this recipe but it works I guess :P Happy 2013 Hannah! Best wishes for the new year :)

    Surely the purpose of that sculpture is to give little children nightmares!!
    I admire your talent for writing, grammar and spelling enormously. My grammar isn’t fantastic but I’m aware of that, so I make sure to double check my work before submitting it. I can’t believe the errors you’ve found! How is that possible?

    Happy New Year to you Beautiful Hannah (capital B on purpose) ;) Now I’m a bit paranoid.
    I’m sure this year will be very eventful for you my darling. xxxx

    Amen to the correct use of apostrophes – maybe your movie could follow the exploits of one girl and her red panda on a mission to ensure that apostrophes are used correctly – the red panda could loom over people misusing them to put fear in their hearts and you could then appear like the good punctuation fairy and explain how they can change their ways. Hmmm it is late and I don’t have enough chocolate or peanut butter in my life – much as I have tried over the last couple of weeks :-) Oh and I was sort of glad your puppy chow wasn’t dog food! I suspect I would enjoy it. (and I thought I might be an editor until I worked with a few who were quite scary and now I am not so sure)

    I’ve never had puppy chow, but I am sure I will try it someday. That sculpture is amazing, and I like how the snow seems so strategically placed. I detest spelling errors, too, and it is particularly horrifying when certain mistakes become so commonplace that I start to second-guess myself, even when I know the correct word. Argh!

  14. Allysia

    Oh yeah, chocolate+pb for a new year? I’m all over that. Yesterday I ate pretty much nothing but burritos and chocolate, ha ha. :) Your language list is probably a wise idea – do people actually write “here enlies the problem”? Really? Hoo boy. Happy 2013!

  15. Hotly Spiced

    With the title to this blog post I was very worried you have taken to eating dog food. Yes, grammatical errors! I try really hard to proofread my posts before hitting ‘publish’ but I know some errors do slip through the keeper. xx

  16. Hannah

    You know, I can almost accept “peaked” interest…Don’t worry, I said almost! But at least there is a logical explanation for that one!

    I’m always hyper-sensitive to the possibility of making a language error when writing anything in public, which is every day of my life in front of school kids. They love catching you out. Now I play a game with them to test them out, but in the land of the internet and self publishing, I really double check anything I am doubtful of. If I am not sure of the expression I read up on it. Initiative people. Initiative.

    PS – sculpture is like Davey Jones from Pirates of the Carribean mixed with Gollum. Stuff of nightmares.

  17. Hannah

    also, I will admit, that ever since The Simpsons so succesfully created the word “embiggened” that I use it all the time, though I know that it is not a proper word. Only problem is, it has cheapened my sense of outrage when other people add em or en as a prefix to words….Language can evolve, yes?

    Maybe not that much.

  18. whisperinggums

    I’ve so enjoyed reading the responses that I’ve forgotten what I wanted to say.

    I do love that sculpture though. I love street art … even when it’s not great I love the fact that it’s there.

    As for errors, yes, count me in as one who hates poor grammar. I know I make mistakes. Sometimes it’s that darned autocorrect and I miss it … but I want to self-flagellate when I do. One of my pet hates is “I could of” as in, say, “I could of used oil instead”. Still, it’s great to see people out these expressing themselves (particularly if I like what they are expressing!)

  19. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Oh phew! I’m glad that it is edible by humans because I thought that it looked too good and when you mentioned chocolate and pb well you know how exciting that is! Happy New Year Spay Lady!!

  20. Debi

    LOL That statue reminds me of Doctor Who for some reason. :D

  21. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Oh frisbee in the park…you’re almost as good as chocolate & peanut butter :) Did you get to play frisbee? or was that purely an example of fun. I hope you got to play. One time Ben & I missed our train in Switzerland as we were having too much fun doing just that. Happy 2013 darling. Cheers to a fantabulous, adventurous, magical year.
    Heidi xo
    ps I would love a grammar lesson from you. I need one. I want to learn. Their you go.

  22. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    hehe thanks, it means a lot, you’re very selfless :) x

  23. Rach

    Oh dear gracious, that “art” is just plain scary, haha! On the bright side, your puppy chow looks delicious!

  24. Heather @ Sweetly Raw

    Happy New Year Hannah Dearest! Chocolate and peanut butter Mmmm that looks so good! Glad to see that you got snow for christmas even if just a little. Belmonte Raw looked like a good time – Ive been wanting to go there… next time Im in the city.

  25. Nutella Puppy Chow - Wayfaring Chocolate

    […] this? Another sugar-laden crispy-delicious chocolate-enrobed Puppy Chow recipe, despite the fact that we’re not even two weeks into […]

  26. An Assortment of Amazing, Astonishing, and/or Awful American Snacks, Part Four - Wayfaring Chocolate

    […] Some of the above items have already been reviewed, so I’ll instead draw your attention to that which turned out to be one of the most horrific things I’ve ever put in my mouth. (Including the time my brother and I tried the canned cat food we were feeding to the neighbour’s cat. Also the time we tried the dry dog kibble we were feeding to our puppy [it was not like Puppy Chow].) […]
