My Dream Master Bedroom Mood Board

I’ve been wanting to create a mood board for my future master bedroom for a while now. I haven’t had luck with convincing my other half that it would look amazing when it’s done. He is very plain-Jane, likes white walls with no pop of anything – me, well I love colour. It’s amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do on your mood when it’s miserable outside. I love teal, greys, seafoam green to name a few. I remember while I was growing up the colours I chose for my bedroom makeover. My parents chose to put a […]

How to make chicken sliders/dumplings/poutines or whatever you want to call them!

Dumplings

I’ve lived in what is classified as a village now for about 5 years. It’s a small French community in Southwestern, Ontario. Before I moved here I had never had chicken and sliders/dumplings/poutines or whatever you want to call them! I remember when I was younger, my Mom would occasionally make a chicken soup and try her hand at dumplings, which never seemed to turn out the way she wanted. Since moving, I have been introduced to chicken and sliders/dumplings/poutines depending on who you ask, and I can’t believe how easy they are to make! One thing I hate is […]

Simple Mason Jar Cookies to Share

Everyone loves a good cookie – well at least I do! I enjoy baking almost as much as I enjoy eating the finished product. I thought what a good idea it would be to fill mason jars with ingredients to make simple cookies that I could give this holiday season. This way you know you have the ingredients to make a batch of cookies instead of getting half way through and then realizing you’re missing a main ingredient. I chose to prepare simple chocolate chip pecan cookies. I started by laying out my dry ingredients one by one in my […]

Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Peppermint Hot Chocolate

There are certain things that being Canadian means; one of these things is that we have to brave bitterly cold temperatures in the winter. What better of a way to brave one of these days is one of my favourite drinks – Hot Chocolate! My favourite? Peppermint hot chocolate! I’ve tried many kinds of hot chocolate. I find when I go through the drive thru to grab myself a hot chocolate on the go, it is always super salty. And realistically when it is super cold out, do you really want to go out, shovel out your car and drive […]

Newspaper Christmas Tree

Good evening! I hope everyone has had a great weekend, and for my American friends, a great Thanksgiving! I feel like the older I get the more I budget my money for things that I want and things I need. I’m at that point now where I do not want to spend a ton of money on Christmas decorations, therefore I find myself doing my best to make my own – a newspaper Christmas tree! One thing I seem to have a surplus of is newspaper. We get a couple weekly papers in our mail box and they typically end […]

The Hottest Toy This Christmas Season

So I will admit that I am much past the point of wanting anything more than spending Christmas with my family and friends. I would normally not even think about toys only because none of my close family members have children the age that would love a surplus of new “in” toys. These toys are the ones that you cannot go without in your little circle of friends at school. At least that was the way it was when I was years younger. I honestly never thought that I would be writing a blog post about what toys were hot […]

Cream of Broccoli Soup

So lately I have been obsessed with going to my local coffee shop on my lunch break to grab a cup of cream of broccoli soup. Let me tell you, it’s uh-mazing!

It took me about 5 minute of prep time and about a half hour of cook time. You will […]

Simple 4 Ingredient Glass Cleaner

Glass Cleaner

Today I took on the daunting task of cleaning windows. I have been putting this off for a little bit too long now, but wanted to get as much outside around the house cleaned up as I could before the snow starts to fly. Over the years of living on my own I have used a lot of different products to clean windows and mirrors. I have tried brand name window cleaners thinking that they would be the best, and I’ve also tried knock-of brands as well hoping that they would do the trick, but no such luck. This frustrated […]
