The Goodness of Homemade

I looked in my draft blog posts folder this afternoon and was very surprised - I have 51 draft blog posts! 51! Many of these I didn't think were finished and weren't "good enough" to post. But as I flipped through so many of them, it saddened me that I have these memories stored away as drafts. Many of them contain precious images and words that reflect a specific season of life, and I wish I had posted them at the time I wrote them. In light of this, one of my goals for 2019 is to actually post what I write! I don't want these images and words to become forgotten, and the drafts folder is often pushed aside (for me, at least!) like a second recycling bin. So, without further ado, these are some memories from winter break 2018/2019 wrapped up in images. 

In 2018 I discovered a love for cooking (I know, not just baking anymore!) which has brought a lot of joy to the family. ;) I've mostly whipped up soups, stews, and curries, primarily because I find them the easiest meals for a beginner. The crock-pot and I have been best friends. This year I want to bring even more flavours to life, and more bread! Yes, the more bread the better. Almost nothing beats a freshly baked bread ring... My favourite is a herbed bread ring with basil, parsley, and rosemary (pictured above!) 

Looking forward to sharing more on this little space in 2019! Get ready for much food & joyous eating! :) 

Much love,
