No one wants to stand in front of the freezer at seven in the morning contemplating what to thaw for dinner. You have thoughts and recipe inspiration for chicken and salmon, but there's always a debate of sides to go along. What, then, becomes the inspiration for putting the household food staples together?
There is a Facebook group I have been following for a few years now called

Hello, I'm Stef, I really really enjoy concocting new meals or even amping up stuff I've already made. I started cooking and baking with my Grandma at a very young age and found it to be my passion through the years, collecting more along the way, stashing my recipes in a black box where no one can see them. So I have decided to start sharing what I make since a lot of friends and family say I can really cook or bake!
I was experimenting today with a few of the many essential oils I have. Not only have I created a new favourite recipe for chai tea, but I have also found a method that is easy for me being a busy working woman. Chai with freshly ground spices is absolutely the best but when in a pinch we have to resort to something a little less time consuming. I’ve tried chai flavoured tea, liquid chai mix, pre packaged chai spices. None of this is nearly as satisfying as having a fresh traditional chai at your local Indian cafe or restaurant, let’s be honest! Well I’m happy to say I’ve found the next best thing! I use doTERRA essential oils because they pride themselves on the purity and quality of their products.

I run to the local shop, pick up all necessary ingredients and return home feeling hopeful and ready to create a masterpiece! I first learnt to make macarons in a baking class last summer and haven't been able to recreate them as perfectly since, and I decide tonight is the night. But who would've guessed that cheap scales, loud whisking, and my unhealthy obsession of watching 90210 reruns would be the cause of my downfall.

It's that time of year again when there's a crispness in the air and the leaves are beginning to change. One of the great things about this time of year is that one of my favourites come on sale: apples. You can get so many different varieties now and there are always new ones to try.
As the summer grows late and the trees fill themselves with the last reserves of the deep green chlorophyll of summer, many will hike deep into the mountains of Colorado. They are in search of a hidden treasure that only comes with patience and a little luck. It is the season of mushroom hunting in the mountains.
