About Me

I’m so glad you’re here! I’m Amanda- the recipe developer, photographer and writer behind the blog. I currently live in Southern Ontario where I own a bakery/cafe with basically the best mother in the world. We dance, sing and laugh along to the radio while we bake and cook everyday. There might be the occasional melt down (mostly just me) but for the most part, we have a blast. Our daily customers have become our family and we don’t know what we would do without each and every one of them. They are all truly a blessing.

I started this blog as a way to express my love of food and recipe developing to someone other than my husband as I’m fairly certain he thinks I’m completely ridiculous. I had a love of photography when I was a teenager and I’m working my way back to that through food photography.

I’m incredibly passionate about real, whole foods that both taste delicious and nourish our bodies. While I don’t profess to follow any diet, you’ll find a lot of vegan/vegetarian dishes here… At least as many as Mark will let me get away with. I’m what I like to call a phase eater… as in I find an ingredient I’m in love with and then find every way possible to make it in to every dish I can imagine… and then get bored of it and move on to the next obsession. If you read along, you’ll see that VERY quickly.I’m here to answer any questions you might have or listen to any suggestions about cooking, baking, and, well, life. I might not always have the answer but I will certainly try.

5 quick facts:

I wish it was fall 24/7, 365 days a year.

I am an old soul (95 to be exact)

I despise technology and the fact that I am required to use it day in and day out and most of the time I have no idea what I’m doing with it.

I love cooking and baking more than I love my husband (he’s okay with it)

I won’t go ‘barhopping’ or to large parties (unless I have to) or dancing in a club… but if you ever want to come over for a good bottle of wine, some cheese(cake?), and relax with some records until the wee hours of the morning, I’m your girl.

Here’s to good food, good conversation and (hopefully) tasty photos!
