My first attempt at Katie's Healthy Chocolate Chip Blondies.

Springing Forward

I’ve been in a bit of a seasonal slump with all this snow, snow, more freaking snow! But an unusual thing happened last weekend when the time sprang forward. Usually this really knocks the wind out of my sails and I really feel the loss of that extra […]

A Favourite Recipe

Recently I discovered that I really like eggplant. I started fooling around with it in all different kinds of dishes, but when I made an Eggplant Chicken Lasagna I was smitten. I love, love, love, this stuff! I swear I can only make it for pot luck type […]

Create Your Own Weight Loss Plan

Since I quit smoking seven years ago I’ve had an ongoing battle with my weight. In the beginning I ballooned to a very large size 18 or  1x. I often tell people it was like my metabolism didn’t just quit working but actually started doing the opposite of […]


So I found a sister and my brother called me, I’m good to go! My brother and I are going to go downtown to the parade this afternoon and then to Ritchie Wharf for awhile. His girlfriend has to work until 4pm, so he’s kinda on his own […]

And So It Is

Angel of Harlem

A sunny Sunday morning. It is Easter and I’m home alone, no eggs, no chocolate, no roast pork with mashed potatoes, gravy, baked carrots, and certainly no apple crisp or pie of any kind. When you can’t trust yourself not to partake, just stay home! No, I’m kidding. […]

Rocket Man

Today was the first day this week that I didn’t have any appointments or meetings or places I had to go, the first day I got to stay home all day. My kitchen is thanking me for staying in! Had some time to get caught up on some […]

Crash, Boom, Bang

Blogging and merlot, not a good combo 🙂 I went to bed fairly early last night, well before midnight. Around 2:30 I was awakened by the sound of screaming snowmobiles. They were circling the building for some reason, maybe trying to find a path down to the river, […]
