  • 06/30/16--08:19: Eating Beavers
  • For our Canada day celebrations I made beaver cupcakes for the little cannucks, or at least that is what they are supposed to look like. For some reason when I made them they did actually resemble the animal, now looking…

  • 08/11/16--08:53: Peach Crepes

  • 10/18/16--13:15: Crock Pot Bread
  • Making my own bread was something that I did years ago before having kids, when I had a smidge more time and no one holding onto my legs while I was cooking. Back then I used a bread maker which simplified the process, but now I have discovered crock pot bread which is just as easy.…

  • 10/19/16--09:00: Carrot & Lentil Soup

  • 10/28/16--09:00: Spider Web Cookies
  • I love Pinterest, I pin lots of projects and even make some. BUT it’s very misleading. That whole perfect pinterest thing is a bit much, even for a devout maker like me. Most of my projects look decent, but that is often after many tries, 20 years of crafting experience, and photography skills. I have been hooked on watching the Sweet Ambs Cookie baker on Facebook, and her videos make cookie decorating look so calming. Just a little wiggle here, and a jiggle there and the cookie masterpiece is complete.…

  • 10/29/16--12:18: 6 Years for Better or Worse
  • I have become a celebrator, I celebrate everything post brain tumour. But a wedding anniversary that is a super big deal. Being married is hard, which is why I think that there is so much divorce. It's hard to stick through the "for better, for worse"times and still love each other.…
