Cookie is a Monster

If it’s possible to eat too many cookies, I am fairly certain I have reached that point and it’s not even Christmas yet.  It all started to unravel with my decision to give home baked cookies as gifts, instead of buying trinkets people pretend to like, only to slyfully return later.

The problem I didn’t consider was all the taste testing involved.  You know, for quality and freshness and stuff.  Needless to say, I have confirmed my weakness for Nutella, my love of crunchy peanut butter, and a little-known flare with walnuts.

So, though the treats are going off without a hitch, I am feeling like I may have overdone it.  And, I am pretty sure the Canada food guide doesn’t endorse ricotta cookies for breakfast, despite my best effort to position them as a source of dairy.

So please don’t wait for me to bake you a birthday cake. I am locking up the butter and sugar until next year my friends.  Now to get through the weekend.  Merry Christmas to all!


  1. Wow those look amazing!!! What a great gift idea :)

  2. Dude - those cookies were delicious, but I'm holding you partially responsible for my holiday gut right now.

10 simple joys

Recently "Chewbacca Mom" reminded the world that life is about the "simple joys". Think about it - more of  life is about the everyday moments than the sexy milestones. Though I've written a lot here about gratitude, this got me reflecting yet again on the simple joys I am thankful for. This is my list right now, though in no way complete.
1. Snuggling under a cozy duvet 2. That first sip of freshly brewed coffee in the morning 3. Hugging my partner tightly 4. Smiling to strangers and getting smiles back 5. Taking in a beautiful skyline view 6. Mastering a new skill that was unknown to me 7. Being awakened by the chirping birds outside my window each morning 8. Watching a scary movie and jumping with fright (this is a guilty pleasure, I'll admit) 9. Grocery shopping with my partner (yes I know, weird but true - we are talking simple!) 10. Camping adventures (s'mores included ;))
What are your simple joys?

What a Twit: Part IV

I am an avid Tweeter and take to sharing my favourite tweets with my blog followers every three or four months. This year started off with a bang and I have more tweets than usual...lots of them funny, some inspirational, and others informative. Enjoy!

@TheLoveStories Never regret something that once made you smile.
@TravelBloggr Dear Twitter spell check, Pancetta is not "pancreas." Just thought you should know. Learn some foodie Italian please.

What a Twit!

Over the past three years that I’ve been on Twitter, I’ve “met” tons of interesting people around the world who are doing cool things, have interesting ideas, are funny and sometimes/often even have similar interests to mine.
Twitter allows you to “favourite” tweets, bookmarking them for easy future reference.  Since many of my closest friends aren’t on Twitter, I wanted to take this opportunity to share some of my favourites - favourites because they are insightful, funny, hopeful or all of the above. Hopefully they make you take pause, laugh, or reflect.
There is a Top 5 (in no particular order), then some of my other faces. Enjoy!
