Updated almost daily. I am a mama of two, part-time event coordinator and aspiring food writer who is passionate about families spending time together in the kitchen. This space is a hodgepodge of recipes made for and with my children. Also included: cookbook reviews, fun party ideas, giveaways and much more. I live in Toronto, ON.
I don't have a recipe for you today as I spent most of yesterday prepping for an upcoming event where I am making and baking 400-500 cookies for some young kids to decorate. A lot of work? Yes! A lot of fun? Yes! I really enjoy activities where kids and food intersect and this project is no exception. I can't wait to see the all the cookie creations that get made and I hope to be able to post pictures for you in a week or so, after the fun has been had.
So while I'm off to spend another day in cookie-land I thought I would provide you with some links to a few things I'm liking this week:
~ An Anthropology location has finally opened in Toronto! And while I can't deny that they carry the most whimsical and lovely clothes and linens, I must confess that it's the kitchen accessories that make me swoon. I love things like this and these are awfully sweet too. Oh, and don't even get me started on theses linens.
~ I just received a lovely cookbook in the mail this week and so far it looks like a great read. I hope to share a recipe or two from here next week.
~ I keep a notebook on my desk where I jot down notes on recipes I'll like to make for family or recipes I hope to alter so my kids can make them easily. This dessert tops the list, although it will have to wait for a special occasion as we're not eating too many sweets right now. But leeks are definitely okay, and really well liked by my boys, so I'm hoping to have a quiche grace our table this weekend.
Wishing you all a wonderful, warm and sunny weekend. What you are planning to cook and read over the next few days?
