Taking the Heat

Looking out my window as I write, I can see a haze has started to fall over Vancouver.  It’s reached that peak in the current heat wave where, although the sky is still technically cloudless, it’s no longer exactly clear.  It’s turned a milky blue.  I think that means the pollution is beginning to build [...]

Apple Blueberry Pie + Pastry Tutorial

A couple of days ago I put the above photo on my twitter as a sneak peek for this recipe.  At the time, there was still some of this pie left in our fridge, and looking at it now, I’m REALLY sad we’ve eaten it all already.  Can we agree on something? Namely that one’s [...]

Balcony Tomatoes

Arbitrarily at the grocery store sometime in May I said, “Hey, want a tomato plant?” Thomas was all, “Sure.” And so we bought one. I have a great nostalgia for tomato plants because my family grew a profusion of them in the backyard when I was growing up. The smell of the [...]

Mojito Iced Tea

When Thomas and I went on our honeymoon to Antigua, the day that we arrived at the resort we walked in and sat down in the reception area and before we even had the check-in paperwork in front of us we were presented with two icy virgin mojitos.  Incredible. They set [...]

If your dreams tell you to make pancakes, don’t argue, just do it.

I had a dream on Thursday night that the only thing that was going to save our marriage (in the dream, for some reason I can’t recall, our marriage was on the rocks) was if I got up in the morning and made pancakes.  I really have no idea what may have [...]
