And I'm back! Quicker than I thought too. This morning was spent in the kitchen, trying to "vegan-ise" a recipe my mom has been making for years. The result: simple muffins that you can flavour in any way you'd like. Throughout my childhood, my mom often made us apple and cinnamon muffins early in the…
It's been a while since I've been down this neck of the woods, but I'm back (again). My second year of varsity is turning out to be much more overwhelming than I initially thought it would be. I always find myself generating ideas for this blog, and never finding the time to actually sit down…
"This past year I've been becoming increasingly aware of the amount of waste I generate. Living in res means that I've seen exactly how much rubbish I create and throw away, and I was actually horrified."
It's over a week late, but here I am welcoming you to 2019. It's a new year. Wow. 2018 went by so fast and I can barely believe that it's over already. So much happened this year, and to be honest it has been a lot to process. It's so important to look back and…

“Marmalade was never my favourite spread for toast. But, the strong influences of Paddington Bear and my dad meant that I slowly acquired a taste for this tart and delicious preserve. It reminds me of home, especially as my mom can often be found making another batch with whichever citrus is currently ripe in our garden.”
"It's Tuesday. My room is tidy, but my bed unmade and my mind is in disarray. But some of today has been good."
"I recently discovered hummus through a friend, and I am absolutely converted! I can't believe that I have been missing out on this delicious, and incredibly versatile food. Ready-made hummus seems to be quite expensive, so I searched all over Pinterest (click here to go to my Pinterest) until I found a whole bunch of different recipes. The common thread is chickpeas, either tinned or cooked by yourself, tahini and seasoning.
After some trial and error I think I've managed to get a pretty good recipe down, and its very easy to make if you have a food processor or blender"
