I didn’t grow up with granola. I grew up with steaming bowls of porridge, boiled eggs and soldiers, toast and tea and the occasional warm crumpet smothered in butter and honey and glasses of cold, cold milk.

Seoul is still pretty cold these days but it’s not so bad because I don’t feel as guilty staying in while the weather is less than stellar. In other words, it’s my excuse to be a homebody! By the time spring comes I’ll want to be outside all the time so why not take advantage.…

The balsamic roasted strawberries make extra sauce that you can douse the ice-cream in!       We had a beautiful weekend here in Toronto and everyone seemed happy.

Sometimes we all crave for some chocolate cake, but we don’t necessarily want to make a whole 8″ cake and then wait for it to cool before getting to enjoy it, would we? These little French cakes are a breeze to whip up and they literally take no time at all for them to cool…

It was my birthday a couple of days ago. While I tend to make a huge fuss when it comes to other peoples birthdays, I’ve always liked to keep things pretty low key when it comes to my own birthday.  Except for the birthday cake, or in this case, birthday brownies. When it comes to…
