So, we had our first major snowstorm and this was the situation we woke up to – one of the birch trees on the side of our house was and is still hanging precariously over the power line. Then, we lost our power in the afternoon but thankfully, we have a generator! We would likely […]

A Walk in the Park

It has been a while again since we went out to any park – our teenager is like a hibernating bear all year long, lol. Finally managed to get him to join us for a quick walk at a local favorite… expected, it was busy (it was 50 and sunny) but we wore our masks […]

Mini Pandan Chiffon Cake

One of the hardest things going gluten free is not being able to bake like usual. I tried a couple of gluten free flours/methods but without much success to imitate the results of baking with wheat flour. After quite a bit of research, I finally decided to try Authentic Foods flours as they seem to […]

Christmas Tree and Lights

Went to get our Christmas tree on Friday (that’s Keith searching for one). The tree always looks so small outdoor but in actuality, it’s a pretty tight fit in the space we plan for it…..every single time! 😂 That evening, we put up our fancy Christmas wreath (that we got on clearance last Christmas, lol) […]

If the florets are too wet, they would just […]

Dairy Free, Gluten Free French Toast Casserole

Due to health reasons, I have to avoid dairy and gluten from now on. It has been almost a week and for the first few days, I was at a loss on what to eat, lol. Hopefully, things will get a bit easier as I get used to this new way of life. The hardest […]

Corned Beef

Sometime this summer, I found the Hereford corned beef at Costco – best brand of corned beef I’ve ever tried! I purchased a few to keep for those days when I want a no-fuss meal – just stir-fry some veggies and serve them and the corned beef on the side with rice. It’s a childhood […]
