A Lovely Spring Weekend 🦋🌞

A lovely weekend began on Friday evening with a yummy gluten free pizza dinner while watching some 80’s summer movies with my hubby and son. On Saturday, we had a delicious breakfast of mini quiches, seasoned white beans, avocado, dairy-free yogurt with cinnamon, grapefruit and matcha tea. Later in the day, the outdoor projects continued….

Tuesday’s Thoughts and Lemony Goodness

On this calm and rainy day, I find myself reflecting on spring, on the goings-on of the season and in the world lately, while sitting by the fire and sipping my green tea. These types of days are reflective for me and it gives me repose to what’s been happening in our lives and helps…

Lemon Muffins and a green smoothie

Hello everyone!! How was everyone’s Easter? We had a lovely Easter here at the cottage with my children, daughter’s boyfriend, and parents. It was chilly but sunny. We even had a bit of snow falling, and then sun again. Interesting weather patterns lately. The food and company was great and leftovers later were just as…

Here Comes Peter Cottontail…

This is an exciting week for me! Preparing for Easter and being outside more, watching the buds on the trees and bushes appear, flowers popping out of the ground, grass getting greener, all of it, is always like an instant mood changer. I am finding myself happier and excited to plant my veggies and some…

Roller Coaster weekend

Last week, we celebrated our daughter’s birthday with her at her home with a nice visit, a PB/chocolate pie (Yum!!!) & gift-opening. It’s always a bittersweet moment when the realization of your children no longer living under your roof and yet seeing them so happy making a beautiful home of their own. Such a joy…

That chill in the air though…

Spring is here and Easter is on it’s way, yard work is getting done here at the cottage, as well as indoor spring cleaning and kitchen renovations are still underway, but what is the deal with this wintery chill?! Gah!! We’re toughing it out and getting what we can done, especially the outdoor duties. I’ve…

Cozy Weekend and brighter days ahead

Hello!! Happy Tuesday!! Hope everyone had a lovely weekend!! This weekend in the past would’ve been filled with watching the St. Patrick’s Day parade in person with extended family and lots of cooking and baking, but we haven’t attended the parade in a few years, so we tackled some home projects, caught up on some…

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!! 🍀🍀🍀

Hello All!! Happy St. Paddy’s Day to you!! Today, I feel the climate is fitting, with cloudiness, fog, and a gentle mist in the air.

Springing Forward with a Mediterranean Grain Bowl 🌷

Happy Monday All!! Did everyone spring forward? It’s difficult to lose an hour of sleep, but I am so happy to see brighter, sunnier days ahead! The temperature is getting a bit warmer and I’m re-inspired to cook lighter fare and garden again soon, and spend more time outdoors again!! Spring is my favorite season,…

Berry Breakfast Bowl

For breakfast this Monday morning, I made this delicious and refreshing berry bowl. It’s such a nice partner to a side of eggs, beans or another type of protein. With Spring around the corner, this was just the thing to serve for breakfast. The day started bright and sunny as well as warmer than usual…
