Red Valentine's Day Red Valentine's Day

Let’s start with flowers…

Routines Routines

Routines. Just by saying this word a need to inhale deeply emerges as if an invisible cigarette was stuck in my mouth. (Yes, I used to be a smoker. I don’t miss it.) How do you feel, what do you think, when this word, “routine”, pops up? For me, that depends. Some days, “routine” makes […]

Happy: Feeling Pink Happy: Feeling Pink

It all started with a cupcake. This cupcake.   After eating it, I was so happy that I started seeing pink, pink, pink everywhere I looked. Do you see everything in pink too or is it just me?   Seriously now. One thing led to another… A new idea was born. It started a few […]

No recipe No recipe

I don’t feel like posting recipes lately. Do you mind at all? I wonder… Please do tell me. Because my head seems to be more into daily family stuff, writing or photographing whatever is around me than posting new recipes that I cooked or baked. I feel more excited telling you about Saturday then the […]

Happy: Feeling blue Happy: Feeling blue

I woke up this morning totally not wanting write about food. I was feeling blue. Maybe because I was tired. Maybe because my throat is a bit soar. I drank tea, not coffee, which is always a sign that I’m not feeling well. My energy levels were down. We woke around 7 am, then I […]

Fun, fun, fun day Fun, fun, fun day

I could sum it up this way: play, cook, eat, clean, play, cook, eat, clean. But… It started with a lazy morning watching TV The Wiggles… Then, some kitchen time/putting the kid to work and cleaning up a little or watching the others clean up More play time and more play time I knew it […]

Happy: Assume good intentions Happy: Assume good intentions

As I’m writing this post, I am thinking about someone I know. She never reads my blog. For the benefit of the doubt, I’d say she rarely reads my blog. There are things I want to say and I wish she would listen to me. She probably won’t, but you will? I spoke with a […]

Happy: Writing with a friend Happy: Writing with a friend

I have a friend. Let’s call her R. I’ve known her for about 8 years. But only about a year ago we became good friends. Sometimes, it takes the right moment for the spark that brings two people together to happen. Do you know what I mean? There’s someone next to you but you don’t […]

Happy: As pumpkin banana cream pie Happy: As pumpkin banana cream pie

You people, you are something else! I don’t know how this happened or exactly why (although I have a clue…), but almost out of the blue I started having thoughts and questions: What’s the point of this blog? Why should I continue writing? For who? Who cares? What do I have to say or contribute […]

Happy: A little treat Happy: A little treat

Yesterday I hesitated before pressing the “publish” button for my first “Happy” post but I did. Later that day I went out for a cooking class at Sur La Table with Mrs. Steamy Kitchen. I haven’t seen my husband and my kids since that morning when they left for school and work. It felt weird […]

Happy: Counting my blessings Happy: Counting my blessings

I love this photo. As it happens, it very much reflects what I want to share with you today. Darkness behind the little girl and a glow of light in front of her, it symbolizes the way I see myself. (I took this photo a few months ago and it was a spontaneous one.) I […]
