Easy Treats – Blood Orange Curd

Easy Treats – Blood Orange Curd

Recent Beauty – A Winter Review

Yesterday I hit a point of exhaustion and physical wear normally only reserved for action-packed workweeks crammed with after-hours activities and non-stop social meet & greets.  With more and more labour prep symptoms starting, my body feels strained, drained, and pushed passed it’s capacity for comfort.  Being fixed on ticking off the rest of my […]

Foodspiration – Mama Eats Plants Feed

Today was a culinary treat. Went out to one of my favourite french lunch spots for authentic Parisian cheese fondue and hot chocolate fondant.  Everything on the menu looked both hearty and delicious (a la french onion soup, spicy dijon, and those little pickles you always want there to be more of).  The past two […]
