Tea. Earl Grey. Hot. And Crumbly.

As a lot of my friends know, I’m a huge Star Trek nerd.  I dressed up as a Vulcan for Halloween last year and even got an IDIC tattoo on my shoulder.

My favourite captain has got to be Jean-Luc Picard.  He’s dignified, smart and loves Earl Grey tea!  I love tea as well.  Dunking biscuits in a nice hot cuppa is heaven.

Yesterday, I was thinking to myself.  I wonder if there is a recipe out there that combines Star Trek, tea and biscuit-dunking together?  And I found it. Today, I’m baking Earl Grey Shortbread Cookies from the Whole Foods Market recipe collection. Continue reading


Back from an unscheduled hiatus.

Well, that wasn’t very nice of me.  I dropped off the face of the earth for a while but I’m back.  I’m going to try my darnedest to post more often.

So, what’s new with me?  I’ve moved to Peterborough in August of 2016 to work.  I was staying with my lovely mum for about 6 months until I got my own apartment in February of this year.  I lost my job at the beginning of September so the job hunt is ongoing.  Oh and I’m engaged!  His name is Dave and I’ve known him for about 20 years.  He’s funny, smart, clever, creative, imaginative and sweet.


We met on IRC in 1996 (yes, I’m old.) and we’ve been very good friends ever since we met.  It’s funny how the world places you with someone who you just click with.  We lost touch for the last 3 years or so and I was sad that I wasn’t speaking to him on a regular basis.  In November of 2016, I decided to message him on Facebook to wish him a happy birthday.  The reason that compelled me to do so was that I kept seeing things that reminded me of him.  It was like the world was saying, “Hey!  You guys belong together.  Do something about it!  It’s time!”.   So I did and the rest is history.  Even though he is on the other side of North America, we talk every day and I love him dearly.

Now, the real reason for my post is this recipe I came across a while ago.  I made it just now and wanted to share it with you:  Parmesan Crusted Brussels Sprouts, found on Delish. Continue reading

Prepare for a barrage.

After a long week without my trusty Macbook Pro, it is back.  Oh, how I’ve missed it.

Now, let’s get down to business.  Here are the recipes from my last post that I said I would share:

Multigrain Molasses Bread – I got this recipe from the Eating Well website.  I like this site because it has a lot of different recipes for a lot of different tastes.  It’s also a health-conscious site, which I love.

This bread was very hearty and had a wonderful bran flavour.  It toasted very well and was amazing for tomatoe sandwiches!

Yogurt Breakfast Popsicles – This recipe if from the Kitchn.  I love the simplicity and diverse assortment of goodies on this site.

Mason Jar Cheesecakes – I thought I mentioned this on my last post but I guess I didn’t.  This is from the Just a Pinch website.  It’s a great member-based cache of recipes!

Strawberry Peach Jam – I almost forgot about this one I made from the Food.com website.  I had a lot of frozen fruit in my freezer that never gets used so I though, why not make some jam?

I hope you’ve enjoyed my barrage of yumminess!
