I'm Nadine. Thanks for stopping by. The floors are creaky, the kids are loud, but the door's always open and the coffee's always on.

Make yourself at home.

Sugar Rush

Last Saturday was the first of many family Christmases. I made very sweet things.

Here's how to make your own. If you like chocolate and cherries, you will fall into a happy, happy sugar coma.

I made these coconut macaroons again this afternoon. (We're headed to a potluck tonight. Kids, growing up means potlucks and brunch.)

I have discovered that marriage has made me annoyingly transparent. I can't hide those SSBs (Secret Single Behaviours) anymore.

Matt knows when I eat [only] sweet potato fries for lunch. Or if I down three Diet Cokes in a row. Or if I lick EVERY BOWL AND SPOON after popping my baking into the oven.

Matt called from work this afternoon.

MATT: Hey, babe. Thought I'd call to fill you in on— ME: [Interrupting] I'm eating chocolate icing out of the bowl! MATT: Okay.

Sigh. At least my vices will never spiral into secret addictions....

Last Christmas, I Gave You My Heart...
