About Me

I grew up in a village of 500 people and now live in a beach town of 10 000. Wife to Jeff, Mama to Makenna and Jack. This is my place to share what's up with us, and the place where I sometimes need to pour my heart out about the not so sunshiney moments. This is my happy place.

The Kids in My Kitchen!

I love to be in my kitchen...or anyone's kitchen for that matter.  I like to cook and bake and experiment.  I have fond memories of growing up and learning in the kitchens of the important women in my life, including those of my grandmothers', my mom's and my mother in law's. 

We include our children in the kitchen as often as possible and here I have shared various recipes we have created together.  Some are tried and true favourites while other are brand new experiments, but all of them provide valuable lessons...and not just for the kids!
