Penitentiary Glen Reservation

The closest I have ever been to a bald eagle – what a majestic creature! This guy was injured when he was a juvenile and even after his wing recovered, he could no longer fly. He made some high-pitch sound after noticing a couple of turkey vultures flying free around the area…..I feel so sad […]

Happy Easter!

What a gorgeous day! Happy Easter to everyone who is celebrating. Here’s one extremely belated post – on the day (back in late February) when Keith bought me the miniature orchid, he bought hydroponic tulips as well, knowing that my favorite spring flowers are tulips. It was a little underwhelming at first, hahaha because they […]

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

We first encountered the original version last Christmas when we were gifted the cookies by our wonderful friends down the street. Every bite was an indulgence that I just had to ask Liz if I can have the recipe and she directed me to Smitten Kitchen. Here, I adapted the recipe slightly to what is […]

Pandan Coconut Doughnuts

Toooooo delicious – absolutely worth my time! 😂❤️😋 Adapted from Mashed Potato Doughnuts recipe […]

Salmon with Penzeys Jerk Chicken and Fish Seasoning

We had a simple late lunch this afternoon – salmon with Penzeys Jerk Chicken and Fish Seasoning, served with rice and sweet corn. So easy and delicious! Recipe: Large piece of salmon from Costco 😂 (I didn’t even check the weight before throwing away the packaging) Olive oil Fresh lemon juice from 2 lemons (or […]

GF, DF Chocolate Date Brownies by FlavCity

For some reason, I was bombarded with numerous ads on Medjool dates on Facebook a couple of months ago, which led me to buy a package of Medjool dates at Costco, lol, even though I’m not a fan of dates as I find them too sweet. So when I saw the Gluten Free Chocolate Date […]
