Sleep? Who needs sleep?

Here were are again. I’m wide awake at nearly 5:00 am. I don’t get it. I really don’t. I did everything right yesterday. Or today? Is it still today? I’m confused. I’m not even tired. It’s like I got this sudden burst of energy. Maybe it’s creative energy. I’ve been pouring a lot of my…

It snowed. A lot. Like really, a lot.

Last night was terrible. I couldn’t sleep at all. I crawled into bed around 2 am but was still wide awake around 5. I must have got some sleep at some point because I remember some weird dreams. I pretty much just stumbled out of bed (literally), about thirty minutes ago. It was 11:15 am….

Winter is here to stay. And I drink instant coffee now.

It’s Saturday morning. I’m showered. Dressed. My hair is washed and dried. I’ve got my toasted bagel and cream cheese with a banana for breakfast. A cold glass of milk. And a hot cup of coffee. It’s instant coffee. I drink instant coffee now. And it’s snowing outside. Yes, it’s like the snowpocalypse today. We’re…

Creamy Tomato and Vegetable Soup (updated)

Update: I just had some left overs for lunch. This was, hands down, the BEST soup I have ever made!!! I’m definitely making this again. But next time, with real tomatoes. So amazing. Add a bit more cream or milk to really thicken up the soup base. So. Yum. While putting stuff away from this…

Cooking Tips: staple ingredients every aspiring chef should own

Today, I wanted to talk about cooking basics. The more I learn about cooking, the more excited I become and want to share everything with you. I’m far from being a professional chef. The reason I wanted to become a better cook was for health and financial reasons. I realized how much money I was…

Personal: Christmas thoughts & blessings to you

I wrote this late last night while tired and emotional. Ignore the errors. I’m too lazy to fix this week. Christmas always seems to come and go so fast. Every year, time seems to pass a little more quickly. It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost six Christmases since my mum left us. Mum…

Company’s Coming: Three course (almost) vegetarian meal

I promised the other night that I would share my recipe for the quiche I whipped up for my friend and pictures along with it. I wasn’t sure what I was going to make for dinner until that day. But when I found out that my friend doesn’t eat meat, that made things a little…

Saturday night musings & a little opera pick me up

My sleep schedule has been out of whack. I was up most of the night with a sudden burst of energy that I haven’t felt in a while. Probably because I had a long nap after work. I decided to make the most of the pent up energy and started a massive cleaning job on…
