Loving the Sweet Potato! Recipe Round Up!

I have a confession to make: I have not always loved sweet potatoes. 

I don't really know why I was so against the delicious orange veggie, but when I was in high school, you had better believe it was a Yukon Gold Potato or bust. Bring on the starchy goodness! Ideally sliced, fried and covered with cheese curds and gravy; but then I am a true Canadian girl.

In the past few years though, I've started embracing the sweet potato; not just because it's delicious, but also for it's incredible health benefits.

10 Shoes Every Girl Should Own

I love shoes. I am a firm believer that the right pair of shoes can make an outfit, as much as a bad pair of shoes can make you look frumpy or disheveled.

I own an army of shoe cleaning, polishing and protecting products. My shoe rack in the front hall is full, my shoe wardrobe in my bedroom is full.. and that doesn't even include my NICEST shoes which I leave in their boxes in the closet, stuffed with the paper they come with so that they keep a nice shape.

I own a lot of shoes. How many isn't important... but it's a lot.

In spite of this obsessive need to collect footwear, I am also a believer in "less is more". In fact, my shoe collection is really the only way I blatantly disregard this rule. 

And so, in the spirit of "less is more" I started thinking about my superfluous shoe collection, and which pairs are really the MOST important. I came up with the following list of 10 shoes (excluding running shoes and flip flops) that every girl should own to complete her wardrobe.

Whether you have multiples of each, or a tried and true favourite, here are the 10 shoes that every girl should own.

Coming out of Blogger Hibernation!

Happy 2016!!!

Things have been quiet on the blog for a while. I took a break off for Christmas and my New Year trip to Florida... and it kind of just got away from me.

I'll be back officially next week with proper posts, but for now I'm going to shake off my hibernation with a funny cooking anecdote.

If you're not feeling like a funny story, just watch this video instead about how to decorate these gorgeous Valentine's Day Cookies!
