Strawberry Rhubarb Marg

Just in time for the long weekend…a Strawberry Rhubarb Marg. This little creation came about because the MR hates rhubarb and I love it. Since “I” LOVE it, and I’m the family shopper, I picked some up from our Community Supported Agriculture farmer, Westham Island Herb Farm. I was dying to try those fresh-picked-that-morning stalks, so […] Read more…

Not So Mellow Yellow

Over the years we have had every colour imaginable on the walls of our houses. While I really enjoyed it at the time, I soon came to realize how limiting those choices can be. It’s like buying a blue couch. You are stuck with it until you change it, and changing it may sound easy, […] Read more…

I’ve only climbed once before (on a large boulders in Arizona). This trip offered […] Read more…

Adorable Adornments

As much as diamonds are a girl’s best friend, adorable adornments for me include everything from custom baubles to vintage finds. I’m on a bit of a 70s gold kick right now…and of course anything with daisies. Delicate pink daisies are where it’s at for me and my neck these days. And gold hoops. Where […] Read more…

Flourless Lemon Ricotta Cake

  Usually when I make a gluten free dessert, one where almond flour is substituted for wheat flour, I’m left disappointed and feeling like I ate a brick.

Beautifully Simple Sundays

In our house, Sundays are for simple without sacrificing beautiful. To achieve this, I love to start the day with a simple breakfast buffet of boiled farm fresh eggs, some perfectly ripe fruit, and a basket of millet and chia toast. Note that the secret to simplicity is to elevate the quality of the ingredients. […] Read more…
