Magic Beans.

As promised, here is the most amazing thing you could possibly do with your homemade Dulce de Leche. Ok, maybe not the most amazing thing, but certainly the most amazing thing that I'm currently aware of. If you have any other ideas I'd love to hear them!

I recently bought a bulk pack of fifty bourbon vanilla beans. I haven't used extract in months and I'll never look back. Vanilla beans are far sweeter with a brighter, potent flavour without the alcohol aftertaste and they have those adorable little specs to decorate your food. Like built in sprinkles! These truly are the magic beans Jack was talking about.

We bought an entire case of peaches so the pie was absolutely essential. I can't have all that peachy goodness going to waste now can I? It was fate. A match made in heaven. Sweet peaches with velvety Dulce de Leche, flaky vanilla bean crust and top it all off with fresh vanilla bean whipped cream. It's a triple vanilla experience! My mind is blown!

Sweet Of The Milk.

I'm going to have to make this quick because I literally have a bajillion things too too today. Have you ever had one of those weeks where you're so busy you can't even find the time to go to the bathroom? Yeah that's me right now and the week just started!

I have so much to do before our trip to Ontario it's not even funny. Not to mention a certain birthday party for a certain 12 year old.

Maybe you've tried Dulce de Leche. Maybe you haven't. Maybe you eat it by the spoonful like me. Did you know it was so easy to make? All you need is some milk, sugar, vanilla and a little free time. If I found the time to make it so can you!

PS: Watch out for a delicious way to use this Dulce de Leche in the next couple of days...

Peachy Keen.

   I have to apologize for a serious lack of yummy posts in the past few weeks. I have been busying myself with preparations to visit Ontario in less than two weeks. It's been almost two years since I've visited my family and friends and I can't be more excited!

What makes this trip extra special is that I'll be maid of honour and dessert caterer for my friend, Lisa's wedding. Lots and lots of cupcakes. Three different flavours. Three different cakes. Three different fillings. Three different frostings. And adorable toppers and baking cups to tie them all together. I'm having dreams about cupcakes to say the very least. Don't worry, I'll keep you all up to date as the deliciousness unfolds!

For now, let's switch gears. I thought it was fate when I saw these Ontario peaches at the store begging me to buy them. It seemed only right that I get a little Ontario preview and share it with all of you. There's nothing better than a fresh Ontario peach, fuzzy and bursting with bright flavour.

I've been on such a peach kick lately. Peaches in my yogurt, peaches in my hand, peaches and whipped cream, peach smoothies, peaches in my mouth. Then suddenly I remembered, oh yeah I have a food blog don't I? So why not share some of the peachy goodness with all of you?

Here is the first of a few peach installments to come. Honey Peach Smoothies!

Fashionably Late Friday: Watermelon.

Watermelon


Playful of Smiles Dress, Damsel Cat Eye Sunglasses, Black Irregular Plastic Bangle, Retro Rose Earrings, Essie Tart Deco Nail Polish, Shiekh Peep Toe Bow Sandals, Veridian Sea Bag, Kate Spade New York Cascade Bib Necklace.

I love making food-related style boards! This watermelon turned pastel outfit just makes me smile. The veridian green bag and shoes are adorable paired with the sweet pink ruffle lace dress and sprinkled with some cute accessories. When I added that necklace with the watermelon seed shaped beads it all came together.

I can see wearing this on a sunny day in the park lounging on a picnic blanket while enjoying some actual watermelon. Perfect!
