I couldn’t let Valentine’s Day arrive without popping back on the blog to say hello and wish you all a very sweet day with your loved ones this week! (Plus, I’ve missed you all!). I decided to bake these Chocolate Cinnamon Heart Sandwich Cookies for my honey even if I won’t be indulging myself. Besides, […]
Hello, Wellness Weekenders! I hope everyone is having a stellar week. The temperatures here in the Toronto area are finally down to “just” the freezing level (32F or 0C)–downright balmy!! (I can’t even tell you how ridiculously happy that makes me. I really should have been born in Florida). Despite my loathing of winter, I’m […]

Okay, just kidding. (Okay, not really). Yesterday, I wrote about my plan to […]
[My plate from our impromptu Christmas dinner last week: simple arugula salad, Festive Roast with brown gravy (still working on that recipe), homemade cranberry sauce, roasted potatoes, roasted carrots.] Have I got a treat for you today!
