I'm not going to bore you with my life, but I will say this: if it weren't for sheet pan dinners or my Instant Pot, my family would never eat. There. I said it. Here's the food and recipe: Sheet... Continue reading

Remember being young, and fun, and eating whatever you felt like? Yeah, me too. Those were the good old days. Then the 40s hit, and a single Cheeto sends me up an entire dress size. Now when I cook -... Continue reading

This is definitely not anything gourmet, but I'm telling you -- going gluten-free is tough, and the best way to be successful is to BE PREPARED! Have food hanging around that you can actually eat, and you'll be less tempted... Continue reading

Miss Megan says she feels tall, with long and lean legs. These shoes have a light capricious summery look to them. The large flower offsets the dark heaviness of the chunky platforms and they allow just a peek of the painted toes. The brass studs are a subtle but important accent and gives them a hand crafted feel. The heels are towering at 5.5 inches but being chunky and with the platform she says that they are easy to walk in. $39 from winners on bloor st in toronto buys a lot of happiness. The older ladies either love the... Continue reading

It's Megan today -- for once! Got these boots on ebay from Ellie's Shoes for $30 (shipping included). I wore them for Mark's Birthday. They are a plastic-y kind of material, but honestly they are SO comfortable. There is even an arch support in the sole of the boots. Mark wants me to tell you why these boots are cool: because they are PINK BOOTS. Ha ha. There is a little platform so that the heel is a comfortable height to walk on. The heel is high, but not crazy high - about 5 inch heels. And they have that... Continue reading

The brownies are really good. I just keep throwing things together and hoping they turn out. I did a banana bread a couple of weeks ago that was really good, too. I think that recipe had xanthan gum it in, but I lucked out and found a really cheap source for it. The Chia seed can be bought at the Bulk Barn, and it seems to be a pretty good binder.

Hello again! Here's another gluten-free recipe for you. I was at home the other night and had a chocolate craving, and I decided to make brownies. Of course, along with the craving was the thought that I should make something... Continue reading

A little update with my pair of blue suede shoes. More to come, now that the summer and flip-flop season is finished. This is a photograph, not of our wedding but from a wedding photography workshop. This is my sister's dress, and Mark played the role of groom. These particular pictures are just snapshots during the workshop. These shoes were $15 from a store called Marisa. Mark calls these 'sleeper shoes' -- because they don't look amazing on the shelf, but are completely awesome once worn. We'll have more to update soon - like Lindsay Lohan's 'court' shoes. CNN featured... Continue reading

Hail. Gale-force winds. Torrential rains. Blistering sun. Droughts. Late freezes. Flooding. Squash bugs, deer, squirrels, raccoons, tomato hornworms, spider mites. In any year, gardening can be a sheer exercise in will. With increasingly unpredictable weather, and zones that are already shifting North, it becomes almost an exercise in prayer. via This is a great gardening article sent to me by the team from Chatham-Kent Community Gardens.

Those sound like awesome combinations! And we're right into Jello Jiggler season too. Pomegranate Schnapps? I'll have to go see if I can find some of that.

“We have a book store owner, an organic gardener, a horticulturalist -- we’re not violent people. We’re a group of volunteers who want to grow a garden,” said garden organizer Brigitte Cosens, who says she got the idea to start a community garden in October after attending a how-to workshop in London. via Well, what do you think? This is pretty extreme for a community garden. Continue reading
