All sorts of things, mostly good.  One very bad.

So, I’ve been quiet the past few days.  Here is what I’ve been up to:

  • Made Multigrain Molasses Bread (post to follow soon) 
  • Learning to sew (I’ve made a plastic shopping bag holder out of an old pillowcase and a Christmas present for someone that reads my blog so I can’t give anything away)
  • Made yogurt in my Instant Pot (I’ll be using it to make Yogurt Breakfast Popcicles – post to follow soon)
  • My MacBook Pro suddenly died so I’ve spent a large sum of money to replace the logic board (I should get it back in a few days)

As you can see, the last thing on my list is the very bad thing.  I’m so glad that I had Bootcamp installed so I could access my MacBook files from the Windows side to back them up.  I’m doing the next few posts on the WordPress iPad app until I can get my MacBook up and running again.  

How have your last few days been?

Neighbours.

We have wonderful neighbours.  We help each other out when we can and don’t expect anything in return.  Today, our neighbour came over to cut Alice’s nails.  Her husband is my boyfriend’s boss so we’ve become good friends.  She did a wonderful job, despite Alice biting her on the nose, so I wanted to do something nice for her.  I’m baking her Cranberry Pecan Shortbread Cookies.

Flashback Friday.

I wanted to do a “Flashback Friday” post so you can get to know me a bit better.  I’ll be doing these every Friday (hopefully)!

In 2013, I was going through a separation with my then-husband.  We were in the process of selling the house and I needed a break from the stress.  So, I decided to spend a long weekend with my brother and his family.

They live in the small town of Chesley, located about 45km south of Owen Sound.  I visited my brother and grandparents every summer since I was a baby and I still enjoy getting up there whenever I can.  It’s so peaceful and everyone knows who everyone is.

Here are some pictures of the visit:

 

I love my family.

Other food I’ve made.

Since starting my blog, I’ve debating whether or not to post on everything that I’ve made that I’ve been proud of.  Well, that would be a lot of posts so I’ve decided to put together a post using pictures instead.

About half of these are from the Delicious Detox cookbook by Carol Morley, a quarter are various recipes I’ve gotten from different websites and the other quarter are made up.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post!  It was awesome to see all the things I’ve cooked/baked over the years.
