I'm a Canadian now residing in Sunny Arizona since 2002. Although I've been a city girl all of my life, I've always loved the country and the laid back life it offers. My love of the Outdoors, Animals,and Gardening comes from my mom Cecile, who loved her home in the country, but sadly passed away in 2005. I promised her I would grow a garden in her name, And I finally did, five years later. One of my best memories of her is how much she loved her garden. The glow on her face when she would show me something new, always creating a life with things she loved. She loved all animals. She taught me simplicity, to enjoy the small things, and see beauty in everything. Today I find myself doing the same things she did in her garden and in life. This blog was created to keep track of my projects and adventures. They may not all be successes, but my goal is to remain unintimidated by whatever engages my curiosity. I want to share this adventure with those who can appreciate the small things, the trial and errors, the simplicity in it all, but mostly,what my mom knew how to do best,just have FUN! *This blog is dedicated to her*

Culinary Delights

I’ve never had a culinary passion until I recently started experimenting with food.
I didn’t think I had the talent or patience. And I don’t know what made me believe that for so long.
Maybe because my mother wasn’t a cook. Bologna sandwiches, vegetable stew and spaghetti was the norm growing up.
And as I got older, living on my own, I was unaware of the possibilities with food. For a long time I worked in restaurants and ate what was available there, so cooking was the last thing on my mind.
I lived on the basics for years until I started to grow my own food. I discovered a genuine interest in cooking my own dishes knowing everything I can use is fresh. I got creative in using leftovers too. Food is like art, and I’ve always been creative.
Today I’m constantly trying new recipes. Food seemed like my enemy for so long, but exploring the possibilities makes my cooking experience that much more fun today.


Here’s to experimenting with my culinary delights!
