Happy Holidays! It’s hard to believe the end of the year is here – 2015 has come and gone in the blink of an eye. With the gift-giving season upon us, I thought it fitting to share my favourite way of repurposing newspapers and magazines, which is…wrapping presents!

Coffee Grounds

French press. Americano. Espresso. Coffee. I love coffee, the smell of coffee, the taste of coffee – good coffee, that is. When preparing my java at home, I tend to go for my traditional French press. I really love being able to make a single cup at a time, and to be honest I simply […]

For me, it’s citrus and passion fruit. Limes, lemons, grapefruits, tangerines, yuzu…anything that has a little bit of tartness to […]

Vanilla Beans

Vanilla is by far my favourite flavour (with regards to sweets, that is). Vanilla ice cream, vanilla cake, vanilla yogurt, vanilla mousse…pretty much vanilla anything. The majority of us are familiar with vanilla extract, commonly found in the baking isle of your local grocery store. I’d say Clubhouse and Neilson Massey are two of the […]
