Sweet and simple, this DIY paper chain is easy. I made it using chocolate bar wrappers, that are so beautiful, that I want to showcase their beauty. Feel free to get your kids involved if you want.

Lilacs

It’s lilac season and I am determined to enjoy the lilacs year round. This year I made lilac almond scones, lilac sugar, lilac honey, lilac syrup and lilac bath soak. Also a soon to come lilac cacao nib scone. I love lilacs and want to enjoy them the whole year though.

2019 What a year!

I may have eaten quite a bit of chocolate. A year ago, I made a New Year’s Resolution to only purchase Canadian Chocolate.  I didn’t tell all of you about that, but I did indeed stick to that resolution.  The only time I bought other chocolate was when I was in Hawaii, and then IContinue reading “2019 What a year!”
