IMG_3732

      The last week in December is one of my favourite times of the entire year. Everything slows down. It’s eerily quiet. The normal traffic has vanished. Snow falls from the sky and glistens on the trees. Eric’s home early from work.  We have impromptu get togethers with friends. I feel proud when I’m able […]

Pop Quiz: Shredded Coconut or snow? Answer: Shredded coconut ……just joking! It’s snow. We had our first dusting of snow today and it made for a nice backdrop for a few photos. The snow also made for a near-death experience while carrying the camera, tripod, plate, and salad dressing across the slippery deck. This may […]

From here on out, things like pears, apples, figs, grapes, beets, pumpkins, carrots, squash, and potatoes make their seasonal debut.

Roasted Tomato Basil Pesto

We haven’t been this excited about a dinner recipe in a long time. Probably not since the 15 Minute Creamy Avocado Pasta, which Eric said – in between shoveling this pasta in his mouth – is “not as good as this roasted tomato pesto recipe”. I didn’t believe it, but after tasting and then devouring […]

Being a gardener in August is a wonderful thing. Even for a Former Black Thumb! [Can I call myself a Former Black Thumb if I still kill indoor plants? I guess that is debatable…] I now have enough organic kale to supply Whole Foods. ;) The sweetest tomatoes I’ve tasted! We’ve been enjoying toasted tomato […]

Blueberry Almond Chia Squares

IMG_9188

Last weekend, I found myself at the Farmer’s Market ogling fresh blueberries. Before I left, Eric said, “Don’t bring back more than you can eat,” with a wink. This was surely a challenge. I left with 2 pounds of blueberries and the complete confidence that I would eat all of them. He obviously doesn’t realize […]
