Dia de Muertos via Artful Desperado

So I’m breaking the radio silence! I am here and I am still alive and well, just haven’t been able to get down for some good ol’ bloggin time, mainly because I’ve been busy trying to finish up some projects, which, at the end of the day pay my rent and internet…which I kinda need for blogging.

A couple weeks ago I did some styling for a client for Dia de Muertos, you know? The super rad Mexican holiday that celebrates death – that’s right – we ain’t afraid of it! This one of my favourite holidays along with christmas because you get together with friends and family..and pig out! Let’s be honest, it’s all about the food.

Since I live in Canada though, I’ll embrace my new pagan roots and I’ll dress up in a macabre costume that shall creep the fuck out people. That or I’ll just eat lots of candy and still creep the fuck out of people.

Cocoa Dumplings with Bourbon Maple Sauce

Since I’m being super dramatic about not having summer sunshine around I decided to hit the sauce – the bourbon maple sauce that is. I made this quick and easy cocoa dumplings simmered in a boozy sticky sauce for Baked The Blog. If you’re also feeling like you need a little sumthin sumthin, then head over there – bottle and shot glass in hand – and get bakin’!

PS. I had this for breakfast and I must say the combination of sugar, butter, and alcohol was the best way to start my day.

Hello Morocco

hey hey hey! Guess who’s back!? After a few – very much needed – weeks of vacation, I am back to reality and life. I’ve been slowly but surely selecting a few images to share with ya and it’s been a bittersweet experience; going through the memories of all these amazing places while hitting the wall of reality, it ain’t easy. First world pains.

So, instead of making a boring “travel guide” (there’s already 1000 guides for these cities) I will share little snippets of my favorite spots, it’s almost as if you could peek into my memories.

The cities I visited were Paris, Barcelona, and Munich in Europe and Fez, Meknes, and Chefchaouen in Morocco. Needless to say each place was unique and stunning. I’ll start with my absolute fave: Morocco!

These images are some moody snapshots of the medina in Fez, a 1200 year old city full of history that words simply cannot describe. The food, the colours, the culture – insanity!

Enjoy the show (oh and if you have any travel questions, just ask away! I’m happy to share any tips).

End of Summer Break

Roasted Artichokes with Miso Jalapeño Aioli

By now I am away from my computer and probably crying a bit because that’s rare and much needed. Yes, friends, I am on a blog break! After a very productive (read: fucking crazy busy!) summer, I finally took some time to recharge. The bags under my eyes are fit for picking apples at this point, so yah, chill time was overdue.

Feel free to peruse around my Instagram feed where I’ll be posting some photos from wherever it is that I am.

See you in a few weeks!

PS. The photo above is for Roasted Artichokes with Miso Jalapeño Aioli that I made for Molly from Almost Makes Perfect, make sure to check her blog for when she posts it!

K, BYE!
