Change is a-comin’. It’s no longer pitch black when I leave the house for work in the mornings. I’m no longer sleeping with three blankets, and I’ve actually lost track of how long it’s been since I’ve had to throw water on the windshield of my car to defrost the ice in a hurry. Everything […]

There’s a lot to be said for living with others. Particularly if it involves cooking for them. I know a lot of people will say that “oh no, my family aren’t picky and will eat every damn thing that is served to them”, but I know many others will agree with me in saying that […]

Sweet Strawberry Shortcakes

Sorry I’ve been so absent folks – between work and taking care of my family, I’m so exhausted that I feel pretty drained of the will to live…UGH! Okay, so that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but the honest truth is that spare time to blog is a bit of a rare commodity at the […]

Snow-capped breakfast mountains

Now tell me that this picture doesn’t make you hungry. I dare ya.

Here, want a napkin to wipe up that drool? Now, if you’re even the slightest bit […]

A frozen nose, a burnt tongue and a sweet, sugary memory

“You know,” my mother mused aloud as she watched me frowning over a big metal bowl of dough, “most ‘ahjumas‘1 don’t even bother making this from scratch because the packet mix is so good…” I grit my teeth. “Shut up, mom!” Seemingly oblivious to my pained request that she stop rubbing it in, she continued […]
