Me and my dad taking a bath

RIP Dad… I already miss you!

There won’t be a recipe today: my heart is at half-mast. There won’t be many words either: I can’t seem to find any. It looks like they all found a very good hiding place! Still, I wanted to share these two pictures of a happy moment that I once shared with my dad. It’s a […]

Quick Raw Corn Chowder

Corn season is here! Woo! Oh… and boo… While I absolutely love corn and I’m always super excited when it starts to appear at local farmer markets, it never fails to make me feel a tad blue at the same time, for corn season here in Quebec also means that summer is coming to an […]

The sweet chewyness, the moist tenderness, […]

Refreshing Cucumber, Tomato and Shrimp Salad

Looks like summer is finally here, and here to stay! There’s flowers blooming everywhere… This particular spot is the king at the moment… I just can’t get enough of this color combination. I just love how lavender attracts butterflies… I have never cooked with lavender before, but I want to find a way to incorporate […]
