Snow Day!!!!!


First came the sleet….

Then came the snow…….

Then the ice…….

Our back country roads were so hazardous.

So we get a snow day : )

Home with my boys♥

Whats the best way to spend it?????

Baking of course!!!!

The house smells heavenly.

Cinnamon & ginger.

Cloves and brown sugar.

IMG_0894A house full of teenaged boys means they won’t last long.

IMG_0893The best part is…..they’re vegan. I’ve been having lot’s of luck veganizing recipes lately.

Tonight we are having whole wheat pizza with D.H.’s homemade pesto, mushrooms, onions, peppers and olives.

And they say vegans only eat salad. ( I actually had a salad for lunch : ) LOL )

I’ve also been busy refilling my Etsy shop after a thankfully super busy Christmas season. ( Taking lot’s

of pictures when your back is killing you is not too fun : ( After 2 days…I’m hoping it will feel better tomorrow)

 Right now Alex is registering for his college classes with the help of his Dad. It won’t be long then they’ll be all grown up 😦 So thankful to have had this extra time off with my little family.

I hope you all are enjoying your day as much as I am and found some time to be creative . G

Baking Day


There are days when you just need to bake.  Create homemade comfort food.  Feel the dough with your hands…just like velvet. Smell the yeasty aroma.  Mixing and measuring is busy work for idle hands.  Not to mention the joy in your child’s eyes when they repeatedly  ask if it’s done yet. Jonathan has little patience to let the bread cool before having a nice large slice. He prefers the end piece : )

Today was my day to cook with love in every bite. Tastes much better that way.

Wheat bread makes the bestest toast…nice thick slab with jam : ) It turned out to be fairly easy to convert my recipes to accommodate our new veggie lifestyle .

Pumpkin carrot muffins. Lot’s of cinnamon and nutmeg makes them smell heavenly. What a great way to use up the “mulch” leftover after juicing  for our breakfast.  Kenny saved out the carrots so I could bake and not be adding spinach and bok choy  LOL. Not sure if bok choy muffins sound too appealing. But you never know : ) Think I’ll have one for breakfast with a nice cup of hot tea : ) Good way to get the happy tummy feeling.
