My kids have been asking me several times to bake Smarties Cookies, unfortunately I never had a chance to bake it for them. To redeem myself from a long forgotten promise, I took my kids shopping to Bulk Barn to buy some Smarties.
I love Bulk Barn and the selection they offer. Every time I visit the store I end up walking out with handful of item that was initially not on my shopping list. This time was not any exception. After almost an hour we left the store buying of course with some Smarites and a bagful of other items for my next inspired ideas. Continue reading →
Both my kids are picky when it comes to eating, which leaves me with very few choices to work with. I have tried a variety of options and often the lunchboxes come home untouched. On the brink of despair, I asked my kids what they would really like to eat? Their answer was, “Pizza!”. Of course!!

Summer is usually the time to explore different looks and hairstyles whether it is for fun or for an ocasion. Just recently my husband’s cousin got married. Both my kids were part of bridal party. My son the ring bearer and my daughter the flower girl. Continue reading →
Lentils are healthy and beneficial in many ways. It is vegan friendly. They are packed with nutrients that are good for you, such as potassium, calcium, zinc, vitamin K, and iron. It also contains dietary fiber and protein. No wonder it has earned its name as “powerhouse of nutritions”.
Cream rolls are universal. The oversized flaky shell, buttery cream filling, and sugar-dusted top, a taste familiar to many. As a child I remember these extremely over sized cream rolls, my mom would buy from the bakery that was close to our house.
