Roaming The Bluffs, Part 1

I've lived in the city of Toronto for over 27 years and this was my first time visiting The Scarborough Bluffs. Okay, so maybe I visited when I was wee small, but I can't recall any of it. Rich and I arrived in the afternoon, not knowing what to expect. But after driving around a little, impressed by the beautiful houses and finally settling on a place to park, we were presently surprised!

Scarborough all of a sudden turned into something completely different.

Review: Viva Vantage by Kleenex

I received an unmarked box in the mail the other day and when I opened it, it contained a package of Kleenex's Viva Vantage paper towels. At first I was confused, as I had no idea who it was from (it was sent from a distribution center) and it didn't contain a note or letter as to why I was sent it.

Vegan Peanut Butter & Chocolate Layer Cake

Rich wanted chocolate and peanut butter, so that's what he got. Four layers of cake, salted peanut butter frosting and a heavy swirl of dark chocolate ganache. This was one seriously decadent cake!

Stir Fried Rice Noodles (Fridge Odds and Ends)

Lazy girl dinner! Rich and I are suckers for noodles- especially rice noodles. We stopped by an Asian grocery store the other day and picked up a package of dried vermicelli without thinking what we'd end up doing with it.

Father's Day and the Best Vegan Chocolate Cake Ever

Rich and I celebrated Father's Day super casually this year (like all years) with homemade cards and mostly made from scratch vegan cake!

About

Hi, I'm Janetta from Toronto. I cook, bake and make big messes. I photograph nearly everything and those photos will most likely end up being posted here. I've got a little black cat named Tank, who's super cute and a little bit nosy. You'll see a lot of photos of her too!

I currently shoot with a Canon 550D. I've shot with a Canon 500D as well as a Canon Pro1 before I drowned one and dropped the other. I also own a little Nikon P5100.
