Thankful for Thanksgiving.

It’s amazing how a small act, like preparing Thanksgiving dinner can make the crappy week turn into a special week. Obviously in the western world, thats what it does. Thats what Thanksgiving is, special. I remember having a weekend cram packed with family and friends visits, outings and of course shopping. Many of my friends…

There is no such thing as a SMALL change.

Changes. Gets the best and worst of all of us. People either love change, because they easily get bored, or they hate change, because the like things to stay the same. I feel I usually fall in between. I think that comes from being a Libra and all, one of the things I feel I…

Walk Like An A Egyptian, Canadian or whoever you are.

As I was searching the internet today for some new Pumpkin Pie recipes, getting ready for my American Thanksgiving. It got me thinking. Isn’t it weird that I celebrate two Thanksgivings a year? One as a Canadian and one as an American ( giving that most of my life I grew up in the USA…

Sunday is my Friday, TGIS!

For most people Friday is a sense of relief, hence the saying TGIF. That’s where TGIS comes in. I’m always so excited when its 7:45 am on a Sunday morning. Most people wouldn’t think anything would be exciting at 7:45 am on a Sunday morning, but for me it means rest, peace, tranquility and my…

Prentending to tolerate other people is exhausting.

Why is it there are those people, or that specific someone that makes you want to raise your middle finger every time they speak to you? Ironically it doesn’t have to be a complete stranger, someone you work with or someone who seems to be always in your path. Sometimes it can simply be a…

I love finding new simple ways for cooked veggies without overlooking! Can’t wait to make this!

Oh for the love of Pumpkins!

Well being that its the fall season and all, time for Pumpkin Pancakes. I truly don’t feel its fall without my pumpkin cravings. Not that Cairo really has a fall season, we jump straight from scorching hot summer to bitter cold desert winter. There’s no leaves that change. No crisp air… No fall! It’s bad…

Mile High Lemon Meringue Pie on Belated Canadian Thanksgiving Day

For as far as I can remember, I’ve always had a thing for Lemon Meringue Pies. It’s one of those pies you love to eat, but never make. Also I find it’s one of those desserts that’s either super delicious, or just plain awful. I’ve had my share of both. Ironically enough this day started…

Thirty-something, I think…

It’s that time of year again, yup it’s my birthday. I must say this year has a cool number pattern 10-11-12 maybe that means this year will be a good one. Well I must try to believe that! Birthdays for me have always been such an exciting time. I love any excuse to celebrate. Any…

Pumpkin Spice And Everything Nice

I miss the fall. And all the leaves that change. Oh and the pumpkins. How I miss the pumpkins! What is not to love about pumpkins. For as far as I can remember the biggest excitement after my birthday was pumpkin season. Honestly, one of the things I miss the most is pumpkin patches. Going…

Happiness in 5 minutes

Is it too good to be true, happiness in a mug in under 5 minutes. I kid you not. And I’m not talking about coffee, that would be my happiness in a mug for sure. My sister is here visiting me this month and we have a discovered a whole new way of entertainment after…

When all else fails, make Apple Fritters

There are days I wake up and I’m so tired before my eyes even open. Its like I am supposed to be awaken fresh and full of energy from a 6 hour sleep. Welcome to life. Then the day seems like you woke up on the wrong side of the bed, and all you can…
