Five simple edits for better photos

After I posted my tips for capturing and editing food photos at home, Michelle mentioned it was nice to see someone who produced a 'natural' kind of result. In an overly photoshopped world, I get that; it's exhausting to look at the perfect image after perfect image. That's what we're here for...

Lucky 13

Monday was our 13th wedding anniversary. This dude and I are the lucky holders of the 13 years of marriage, 15 years together, trophy. Which, they tell me isn't a thing but I'll raise it high anyway. Because marriage is hard and making it work can be harder. Can I be honest with you? Pffft, of...

When it’s not yours to tell

I've been a little quiet for the past couple of weeks. From the high of daily (ish) blogging it was a bit of a comedown. So, without excuses or blame, I want to tell you what was going on in the hopes it might clear the way for some words to show up. “You own everything that happened to you. Tell...

Suger Eats; it’s a thing

Remember when I used to post recipes? I did it all the time and cooking was something that made me super happy. Only when I didn't HAVE to do it, mind you. But happy none the less. I sort of lost my mojo because life came up and stole my beautiful kitchen from me, followed by all my spare time....

I was weighed & measured as a kid; what a fuck up

You've heard the news, apparently against all common sense and recent science, they want to resume weighing and measuring kids in school. I say resume because when I was 11, I remember being lined up in the front of the class in order of our weight. Or maybe it was BMI. But there I was, just...

My kind of people

We've talked about this before but it really hit home for me today. One of the things I love most about working for myself is that there is really no one to tell me what to do. My favourite part of THAT is choosing who I want to work with. I know, for others in business, that makes them happy too....

Belonging to something

This weekend we celebrated my cousin's 40th birthday. If you've been around for a while now, you know that cousins are something I have plenty of! My Dad is one of eleven children, and my mother is one of five. There's a lot of us. And when we get together it's always the best of times. There's...

Weeknight pasta dinner

I hadn't planned to put this recipe on the blog. There's not much to it, and the photos from my kitchen counter at 8 pm on a weeknight are hardly the stuff of Pinterest dreams. But, this is a delicious, simple meal that with a few fresh, simple ingredients can make your life so much easier....

The order of things

There's an order to things and sometimes you just have to stick to it so things WORK. But, I mean, how the heck do you tell the difference between the order of things and change? How does one know whether they're being a change-maker or a jerk with no consideration for others? Or really, are they...
