Spiced Apple Cake.

October 31, 2016

As I sit here eating this delicious spiced apple cake for breakfast and sipping my caffe latte, I figure what better time to tell you about this cake? There’s no better time to write about something than when you’re actually eating it right?  I found this recipe while looking at the Feedfeed’s Instagram story last weekend. One of their editors, Rebecca Firth from Displaced Housewife was making this cake. It looked so good in the Insta video, so I went over…

How I proposed to my bridesmaids.

October 26, 2016

Once Ben proposed, it was time for me to propose right back…to my bridesmaids!  I knew that I wanted the moment to be a special one and that I wanted the whole bridal party to be together when I asked.

Since then, we make the drink when we get together and pretty much can’t get enough. I…

Brandy-Infused Pumpkin Pie

October 9, 2016

I have not one, but two turkey dinners to go to- one I attended last night on my side of the family, and one tonight on Ben’s side of the family. So even though I will be EXTREMELY full on turkey and stuffing, no Thanksgiving dinner would be complete without my mom’s pumpkin pie. She’s been making it for years, and the…

Cherry and Pistacchio Chocolate Bark.

October 7, 2016

One day back in April (yes, that’s how long it took me to write this post), I made this cherry and pistacchio chocolate bark to bring to my friends’ Sarah and Marco’s party. I planned to bring this bark for dessert because Ben and I were going to be late to Sarah and Marco’s since we had to go to Ben’s work event first. Well, when I met Ben at his “work event” at an art gallery in North Vancouver,…
