WIAW: It’s Biochemistry

Happy What I Ate Wednesday! A day to let our brains go to a little spa and leave those deeper thoughts behind.  At least while we salivate over pretty pictures of food. I’m in a big week of pre-rehearsal table work here (script reading and analysis discussion for my next theatre project).  Eight hours a day of sitting (and staying 100% focused for every moment….errr…). It’s good. Really. I  feel a greater…

Week In Review: Refreshed

The start of a new week. Wow. I can’t believe it has only been a week and a few days since Christmas. Seriously. It feels like a distant, distant memory of weeks past. But not in a bad way.  No. The opposite actually.  This past week, and especially just these past few days (once the festivities of both Christmas and New Years were all past) have been surprisingly wonderful. I am back in my single…

Baking for Smiles

Well …Happy New Year! I hope you had a nice evening – whether that entailed staying up way too late and getting a little silly, or falling asleep before the clock struck 12. I fell asleep after 2 glasses of wine. Woke up at 11:55 to toot a few horns, then retreated to my slumber. I’m wild ya’ll. Wild. So. I do have a number of “meatier” posts on the go that…

Thinking Out Loud: Moving Gently into a New Year

Well, the end of another year is upon us.  Actually – no – that sounds too sad.  Rephrase. A new year is just about to begin. Better. I do not feel the need, or desire, to write a post about New Years Resolutions. I know it will be a hot topic in the blog-o-sphere in the next few days, not to mention surfacing the cover of every paper and magazine. This is not to say I…

WIAW: That’s a wrap

As you are reading this, I am most likely on a plane flying my way back to Toronto. Being home had its ups and downs. There are many things I’ll miss, but all in all, I am looking forward to getting back to my own little haven, my own schedule, and get started on those new year to-do lists. Time for some refreshing. So how about a little WIAW to send me off? A time to…

Christmas 2015

Like so many years before, another Christmas has come and gone. Of course, the season of the holiday continues, but the glitz and glamour of the one special day is now past. It was a traditional Christmas at my home, as it always is. The Christmas Tree was decorated with our random assortment of ornaments, all bursting with childhood memories.  Too many gifts were placed beneath. My goal for homemade and simple giving was achieved and finished off…

WIAW: Cleaning Up

Hello!  Coming to you from Northern Ontario, Canada, where I am bundled up in 2 socks, leggings + pants, long sleeve shirt, 2 sweaters, scarf and a toque. And this is sitting on my couch. Okay so its really not that bad – for this area at least. Only about -6 Celsius.  Everyone here thinks this is nothing, buuuut… I’m a wimp. No denying. I hate the cold. Chances of me leaving my home to go outdoors for…

Week In Review: Finishing Off and Flying Away

So I hear Christmas is this week. Um.. heh? Not sure how that happened, but hey, jingle all the way! And while we’re jingling, let’s make a list and check it twice, ya? I’m sure most of our to do lists were a bit bulkier last week. To all fellow list lovers – its an exciting time! And I’m sure the list continues to be just as lengthy, if not more so, for this week…

Me. My Dream. And a confession.

Hi all, The pictures dispersed through this post are from a trip I made to Stratford, Ontario in the early fall. A small town, home to Canada’s most prestigious classical theatre festival. This is the home to my dream. Since I was very young, its been my dream to perform. I was a dancer, singer and all around drama queen. I’ve always been very shy, until you got me onto the stage. Up there?  All…

Kabocha Chili and Curry: Two “One Pot” Recipes

Dear Kabocha. If you’ve been following me for even a short time, it’s probably no secret that I have a dear, dear love. A melt in your mouth, sweet, starchy, orange love. Although I’m a fan of all members of the pumpkin, gourd or tater family (#gimmeallthecarbs), there is one that undoubtably shines far above the rest. Kabocha ya’ll. Japanese Pumpkin. Sweet Mama. Whatever you like to call…
