Orange & Spiced Peach Galettes

I admit, it’s been an embarrassingly long time since I last made a post. I’m sorry! There’s a whole long list of excuses I could use, but truthfully life just got busy, as it does for all of us, and I just lost track of time. But I’m back! And so is summer. And one…

Garlic & Lemon Shrimp Spaghetti

Hello! It’s been a while. I’ve made my way back to the mainland and managed to get lost in the chaos of packing up and moving. It’s so lovely yet strange to be home! I feel like a tourist in a city I know inside and out. Everything feels new and exciting, but yet I…

My Dream Cookie

It’s happened. Finally. Something I’ve been working on, searching for, and pulling at my hair over, has finally happened. I’ve found my dream cookie recipe. Some people dream of finding their dream partner in life. I dream of the perfect chocolate chip cookie. This may, admittedly, be because I’ve already found my dream dude. But…

Pimp My Instant Ramen

Hello! It’s been a little while. I caught the flu plague that was going around and I was down for the count for over a week. But I am alive! And one thing I definitely ate lots of during that week of sickness was ramen. I don’t know if it’s a requirement for being part…

Madeleines

On the list of my favourite things to eat fresh out of the oven, madeleines are pretty high up there. For those who’ve never had madeleines before, they’re basically teeny tiny tea cakes.¬†When made right they’re soft, fluffy, and delicious. Easy to eat way too many. There’s lots of recipes out there but this one…

One Bowl Chocolate Cupcakes

You know when you wake up sometimes, and you just think, “I’m not getting up today. I won’t. I will not. No one can make me.” And then you do. I’m just having one of those weeks where I need a couple bottles of wine, several days straight of sleep and maybe a foot rub…

Strawberries & Cream Puff Pastry and Pals

Let me start with a disclaimer that I have the cutest friends on the face of this earth. So be warned, this post contains many photos of some of the most adorable people you’ll ever see. I find as the older I get, the less time it feels like I get to spend time with…

Lemon Curd Cheesecake

  Can we talk about how expensive fruits and veggies are getting?! I was at the grocery store the other day and I would have had to sell my soul for a few avocados. Fruits are my favourite thing of all time. I’d choose fruit over candy any day of the week- and I’ve got…

Banana Bread

The weather here is still pretty cold and rainy. It’s that kind of damp cold that you can’t seem to shake, it gets right into your bones and only a steaming hot shower and cup of tea get get you feeling alive again. A while ago it got crazy stormy and most of Victoria got…

Buttermilk Biscuits

The holidays have come to an end, the christmas tree is being taken down and we’re all making our way back to work and school and the everyday grind. But you know what makes it all easier? That’s right, buttermilk biscuits. For Christmas I got a great little jar of jam to add to my…

Buttermilk & Cardamom Tea Pie

So I’ve decided that I need a Scottish Fold Munchkin kitten. Like, seriously guys, look: I would most likely need to take some sort of kitten version of maternity leave from work. There’s absolutely no way I could go to work everyday with that little face looking at me wondering why I was leaving. It’s…

Tofu & Love

Looking back on 2015, it was a pretty fantastic year. It was full of time in the kitchen, both professional and at home. There was lots of music, friends, family and love. And I finally got to stop taking weekly ferries out to visit Owen, because we moved back in together! 2015 was packed full…
