Surprise Trip to the City Farm

Rich surprised me with a trip to Whittamore's Farm on my birthday! I guess after my endless ramblings about 1. wanting to go to a farm 2. how my garden is shit this year 3. how I love picking fresh produce, he decided this was the perfect little place to visit.
It was!

The Fairmont Royal York: Afternoon Tea

This visit to The Fairmont Royal York hotel marks my fourth year going to afternoon tea with Rich's mum and ladies of the family and every time is just as wonderful as the last. If you haven't experienced the pleasures of afternoon tea yet, I say go ahead and treat yourself! I mean, really...who doesn't like a table filled to the edges with pastries, finger sandwiches, fresh and pillow-y scones, various jams and honey, Denvonshire cream and pots of premium hand bagged tea?

Vegan Banana Cake with Vanilla Bean Frosting

This two layer banana cake is swirled in a light a fluffy vanilla buttercream and it just so happens to be vegan, low fat (cake, not frosting) and super moist! Since one of Rich's favourite cakes is banana, is was a no brainer as to what kind to make him for his birthday.

Review: Starbucks Frappucino (Bottled)

I was sent a complimentary case of Starbucks' bottled Mocha Frappuccino to review not too long ago.The product is shelf stable, comes in a cute glass jar reminiscent of old milk jugs. These are not new to the market, but they were new to me!

Surf 'n Turf: Steak and Salmon

I'm behind on blogging. What's new?
I'm constantly taking photos, doing edits, but I just haven't gotten around to sharing them with you!

This was dinner a few weeks back. Grilled Atlantic Salmon fillets with a creamy honey, lemon and Dijon sauce, strip loin beef steaks and charred corn on the cob. Those chives you see sprinkled around are from the herb box in my garden.

My tomatoes and peppers might not be doing so well, but the herbs (parsley, chives and thyme) are doing great! I stuck a couple of spring onion roots in there too.

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.
