Monthly Favourites March 2017

Ok, I’m going to blow your mind right now, you guys.  Can you believe that basically a quarter of 2017 has passed already?  I’ll just give you a minute to process that while I go grab a cookie………

Are you ok?  Are you still with me?  I know, I know.  I can’t believe it, either.  March was a rough one for us weather wise.  One minute it was nice and sunny and promises of spring and lovely weather were in the air.  Then? Then, it was crazy winds and bitter cold.  Mother Nature played tricks on us round these parts.  Why you be hatin’ on us, girl?

Anyway, let’s get to it. Let’s check out what’s been happening around these parts, shall we? Continue reading

Monthly Favourites February 2017

We are that much closer to spring, you guys.  Can you just feel it?  Smell it in the air?  Bring it on, I say.  February was a pretty tasty month.  There was lots of snow ’round here and mother nature was pretty rough on us, but that meant more time inside ‘practicing’ some recipes.  Yeah, that’s what I’ll call it.  Any excuse to eat something good, right?  Hehehe.   Anyway, let’s get to it. Let’s check out what’s been happening around these parts, shall we?

Things I’ve Learned Being a Food Blogger

{the good, the bad & the funny}

Hey guys!  Real talk.  Let’s get serious for a hot minute, ok?  Ok, not that serious, but  I’m bringing you something a little different today.  Mixing this whole posting thing up, ya know?  I haven’t been blogging for a huge amount of time, but long enough where I can share a few tidbits of info with you guys.

You may be thinking ‘But, Dawn, I’m not a food blogger; why would I even care?’  Wellllll, first of all hopefully you like me and you like reading my stuff or maybe you will find this half entertaining or, at the very least, a way to spend 10 minutes while you drink your morning coffee before you have to haul yourself out the door.  Really selling it here, aren’t I?  And, positive note,  if you don’t find it entertaining, well I guess you can laugh at me.  No, don’t do that 😉 Continue reading
