Dec 21, 2020
 
What's your feeling on Eggnog? 

December 1st comes every year and I have this dream in my mind; sipping on eggnog all day, doing all the Christmasy things - decorating the tree, listening to holiday music, pulling out all the good pairs of holiday pjs.

And while I do all the Christmasy things, the one thing that gets old fast is the eggnog sipping

I made one eggnog latte.

Holiday Gift Guide

Nov 13, 2020

A few days ago I was taking a break from my computer and stepped outside on my patio for some fresh air. And because it's getting dark at like 430 these days I happened to notice some lights on in my neighbours apartments. And no I wasn't creeping on them, though it's always interesting to think about what other people are doing in their apartment at the same time, especially during the...

Creamy Prawn Linguine

Jan 20, 2020

I love a good sauce. A good sauce is something that once you know how to make it well, you can get creative and use it in so many different things. Enter creamy Alfredo sauce.

Fall Pantry Capsule

Sep 13, 2019

Can you feel fall in the air yet? Cozy sweaters, slippers, a warm drink and something cooking low and slow on in the kitchen. Fall is always that time to retreat and hermit a little. Well for me anyways.

I love lazy Sundays reading, listening to the rain outside and cooking a good stew or braised short ribs, or roast chicken.....or......my list could go on but I won't ;)

It's cooler...

Prawn Ceviche

Jul 19, 2019

A little pro tip, rather than one large baking...
