Passover 2014



This past Monday, I was invited to Passover seder with Rich's family. Everyone got together, we read from the Haddagah, drank and feasted!

Lemon Poppy Seed & Tea

One of my favourite cakes is a lemon poppy seed cake. I also like lemon poppy seed muffins, pancakes, cookies, you name it- as long as it's got a nice zing to it, I will enjoy it. A couple weeks ago, I made this poppy seed loaf, which I then topped with a deliciously sweet and tangy glaze made with fresh lemon juice and confectioner's sugar. The cake was dense, moist and lemon-y, making it extra perfect for eating with a cup of black tea!

My Very Own Satellite

Little Miss still has her disk on. I think that by the coming weekend I'll set her free from the cone of shame, so she can trot around the house like she use to. Having to navigate the house for about two months with it buttoned around her neck, I'd say Tank's gotten the hang of it now. It's hard to snuggle though; especially when she wants to sleep nose to nose, as in WE NEED TO SHARE THE SAME BREATH. Kind of gross, right?

Vegan Apple Blueberry Galette



This is a galette. To me it is the best kind of pie to make, especially if you get lazy like me but want homemade goodies. As long has you have a crust and some kind of filling, you're good to go! No fancy pie crimping skills are needed, heck you don't even need to use fresh fruit. Canned will do or be like me and use whatever was left in the fridge. In my case, a handful of sad looking blueberries and a few totally not recommended for baking apples, aka. Red Delicious. 
This post is photo heavy!

All Better!

Tank is 99.9%! Her skin's cleared up and her fur is eagerly growing back. She's now eating and drinking on her own, which means I no long have to feed her by hand and aside from her trying to clean her self, cone on her head and all, she's back to her good old self.

Chicken Fried Steak & Mashed Poatoes

Chicken fried steak, garlic mash and pan gravy with a side of zesty green beans. It looks pretty uniterested, but the flavours were there and I particulary enjoyed it with a side of raspberry jam. Kind of channeling Ikea's meatball and mash dinner, yum yum!

Update on Tank

These were taken a couple weeks back. We have since seen the vet for a follow up appointment, where Tank received a second injection of antibiotics. Fast forward to tonight, she's doing so much better than when these photos were taken! Sure the fur on her head is pretty much gone and half her back is hairless too, but it's growing back with a vengeance. I forgot how lovely the feeling of a hairless cat is. She looks a lot like she did back in June 2012 when her Pemphigus flared up crazily. There's more fur left on her head this time around. 

I'll show you soon enough. :)


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.
