I have been wanting to make a raincloud costume for Halloween for YEARS. In fact, there are loads of costumes I’d love to try and make, but each year I leave things until the last minute, and end up having to settle for my trusty witch hat…until now!Continue reading “DIY Raincloud Costume”
It’s hard to believe it’s been over three years since my last post! Honestly, where has the time gone? I’ve tried on several occasions to sit down and start writing, and once or twice a few words have dribbled out, but I just couldn’t motivate myself to push any further than that.Continue reading “Back in the saddle”
I can’t believe how quickly days are turning into weeks around here. I keep seeing all these articles with tips and tricks about how to keep busy during the pandemic, as though everyone has enormous amounts of free time. Meanwhile, we’re busier than ever and I find myself wishing we had some more down time.
Hello world! Long time no see. Literally! The past few weeks have been very surreal as we’ve been self isolating for the better part of a month now. I’ve had a hard time mustering up the energy to write a post, but I thought it was about time I got back in the saddle.
I always find weeknight dinners a struggle. We normally don’t get home from work until 6:00 at the earliest, and by that time I’m getting pretty hangry. I need to know what I’m going to make well ahead of time, otherwise when we get off the bus and wander into the supermarket, there’s a good chance I’m going to snap into a hangry rage.
I had intended to share these last week, but I couldn’t get organized enough to put this post together. We have been deep in the throes of wedding planning for the past few months. As a result, I have been working on all sorts of fun creative projects, but I want to hold off sharing them until after the big day. It hasn’t left a lot of time for extra baking on the side, so this blog may seem a bit slow until after June 1st. I should be back on track after that, at least until we disappear for our honeymoon!
I’m a big advocate of snacks. You see, I suffer from an extreme case of hangry-itis, which gives me about a 20 minute window from when I feel that first grumble in my tummy, to when I turn into a fully fledged demon, filled with rage and despair.
The weather has been rather miserable the past few weeks. The rain hasn’t seemed to stop for more than the occasional half hour, and even when it does, they sky is still grey and dreary. So naturally all I have been waiting to do is curl up inside with a blanket and eat nothing but soups and stews for dinner.
Every once in a while I will get a message from someone asking if I know of any good gluten free or vegan recipes. The short response is usually a no. I just haven’t made many gluten free or vegan friendly desserts, so there aren’t any I can recommend without having tried them out first…until now!
I’ve come to realize that peppermint flavoured cookies are something that people either love or hate. I personally quite enjoy them, which is why these cookies made it onto my cookie baking marathon list before Christmas.
