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...

As Nature Intended.


Have you ever caught yourself marveling at the absolute perfection of nature? Fluffy clouds inexplicably shaped like familiar everyday objects. Beautifully red and romantically heart-shaped strawberries. Honeycombs, flawless hexagons built by determined bees and filled with the sweetest honey. Shimmering lustrous pearls hidden inside unassuming oysters settled on the ocean floor. Bits of simple twigs and grass interwoven into a crib for eager baby birds all the while perched precariously in a tree braving wind and rain. The impeccable arc of a rainbow reflected off the tiniest raindrops brightening even the dreariest days.

Maybe I have too much time of my hands. It's an excellent possibility.

Today, while snapping photos of our budding crab apple tree in my pajamas, socks and sandals, I was visited by a little ladybug. She lazily buzzed down to the branch I was focused on and landed lightly on this sweet little flower bud. She was all too ready for her close up, sitting patiently and politely while I maxed out the space on my camera on her sweet little self.

Sometimes if you sit still long enough you notice these things. The consummate beauty of the world lays itself before you in the form of a shining beetle, ripples in a pond or a puffy bunny-shaped cloud.

The key is not to mess with nature. Take it as it is and appreciate it in its entirety. In the spirit of that lesson I've made Almond Butter. Simply almonds, toasted and pureed with a splash of oil and a hint of sea salt.
