Torta Caprese (Flourless Chocolate Hazelnut Cake)

A couple weeks ago, we decided it was probably time to change to winter tires.  I offered to go with Alex; we could get brunch while waiting for the car and make a morning of it.  So we woke up early on a Saturday and made our way there.  We knew there was trouble as soon as the guy at the desk couldn’t find our name on the list.  Apparently our appointment was incorrectly booked for the day before, and we were stuck with no car, hoping that it would at least get done before closing at 7pm.

Roasted Grape Rosemary Focaccia

I’ve been watching (bingeing) Gilmore Girls on Netflix recently.  My mom and I used to watch Gilmore Girls when it first started airing back in 2000, which I can hardly believe was 14 years ago!  And I just realized that’s half my lifetime ago…

Pear Ginger Sparkle And Spice

It’s my birthday!  I don’t care how old I am, I still love it.  Usually I try and stretch it out as long as I can.  Birthday weekend.  Birthday week!

Caramel Apple Tart

The hectic weeks are done (for now) and I can breathe a little again!  Breathe and smell the apples and cinnamon.  

We are being inundated with apples!  There are always apples at the grocery store, so it’s easy to take them for granted most of the time, but we shouldn’t.  I mean, it’s not every day you can get these adorable, small, local apples.  Shiny and bright; red jewels decorating the trees, waiting to be picked.  Just look at them.

These colours!  As we move closer and closer to the time of year where colour and warmth are lacking, let’s look at these and be happy.  No more words, just brightness.
