Simple About Me
I’m an Ottawa girl who loves food, getting on planes, and TV. And cake. And a few other things.
Longer About Me
I’m a writer, a web-editor, maker and eater of good food, an off and on traveller. I’m a mom. I can’t do without my TV shows. I’m a tech nerd, an avid reader. I’m always seeking out new things to learn. I’m a doer. If I want something, I go out and get it. I make it happen. I always have many things going on at the same time—and I wouldn’t change a thing.
This blog has been on my mind for years and here it is (finally!). (Read here about how it finally came to be) I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
And if you ever want to get in touch, here’s how.
Cooking and baking are always adventures to me. I’m always creating something new, or adapting existing recipes into something I feel better eating. All the recipes you find on this site are plant-based, the majority are wheat-free, and most (not all) are nut-free. I eat a mostly plant-based and I eat wheat in moderation—because that’s what makes me feel good—for several reasons. And that’s that.
I’m all about homemade, real food, but I do have a sweet tooth. OK, a salty one too! So while I eat healthy the majority of times (oh, hi kale chips and berry beet ginger smoothie), I have no problem indulging—as you will see through some of my recipes. Like my old fashioned cake doughnut mini muffins. *drool*
As Donna Meagle says:
As a kid, I wanted to be a flight attendant. Then a pilot. Then an air traffic controller. I don’t really remember when or why those aspirations shifted, but they did. But it didn’t quell my love for all things travel. Each time I fly, I still secretly wish that it were me flying the plane 🙂
Whether I’m travelling for work or for fun (Disney…be warned, I LOVE Disney!), it’s always an adventure I look forward to. I love flying, planes, and airports (is that weird?!). I love seeing new cities—simply put, I just love travelling and I wish I could do more of it. One day. Here, you’ll find travel tips and stories about my trips as I work my way through my travel must-do list.
My family, good food, an upcoming trip to look forward to, good books, music I love, Food Network, “my list” in Netflix, and my iPhone—as long as I have all of those things (aaand maybe a few others!), I’m happy. Follow my life adventures as I take you around my town (Ottawa!), tell you about what I’m reading and watching (and why you should be reading and watching them too!) and whatever else that may be happening that I think you should know about.
