June 5, 2013

Absence makes the heart grow fonder. I hope that’s true. It’s been weeks since I’ve left you with something here. Time has a way of slipping away, slowing falling from our grips. Sorry.

Tuscan White Bean Soup

March 7, 2013

And so it begins. The slow and deliberate winter thaw. The sound of the swollen winter breeze, for months now our companion, has been extinguished.

Food Styling Challenge (Blackberry Chocolate Cake)

February 26, 2013

  I have often professed my love of living in Canada and residing in a country with four distinct seasons. Each season ushers in hope and endless possibility.
