Candlelit Fondue - An Earth Hour Date Night

This past Saturday from 8:30 - 9:30 was "Earth Hour". Rather than just read by candle light and use up the batteries on our iPads for entertainment, I decided to plan a romantic dinner that would include not only candles, but also wouldn't require me to use my stove to cook.

And so, our romantic Earth Hour fondue night was born.

Spring is Here!

Happy First Day of Spring!!!!!

The sun is shining, the birds are flying home and I've shed my winter coat.

Sorry Ned Stark, but Winter is as over as your time in Westeros (also, just a few more weeks until Season 5!!! Yet another reason I'm happy about spring!)

Perfect Pineapple Upside Down Cake

I don't know if it's the warmer weather, my dreams of being somewhere tropical right now, or the fact that it's so darn delicious, but I have been craving pineapple like CRAZY lately! 

It's become a regular feature in my smoothies, so I always have lots of it around these days.

I was on my way home from the gym, when I decided that I had earned something a little extra, so pineapple wouldn't just be in my after-gym smoothie, but also dessert. It was time to make the Perfect Pineapple Upside Down Cake!

Quick and Dirty Chicken Shwarma

One weekend night we had some extra time on our hands, when Kris looked at me and said "lets cook ourselves something new and fun for dinner"

I love this man. He totally gets me.

We pulled out our Jamie Oliver Comfort Food cookbook, our go to favourite, and poured over the pages to find something new and exciting to cook. We were tempted by Osso Buco, and the Insanity Burger, but in the end we settled on Chicken Shawarma.
