Pink in Autumn



A little bouquet set in a vintage tea cup


Tank, stopping to take a sniff

Walking around the garden today, I finally decided to pick some of the daisy like flowers that were growing at the side of my house. I don't remember planting them, thus I have no idea what their actual names are but I've noticed them for a couple weeks now. The weather has been gloomy, cold and rainy but these pretty little things definitely make themselves known. A nice spot of pink in a wet and grey Toronto!

What's for Tuesday dinner? Duck l'Orange





.
This was my second time roasting a whole duck and man is it ever easy. I love shoving things in the oven, forgetting it -in this case- for a couple hours then coming back for it all cooked, juicy and roast-y! I've never made Duck l'Orange (Canard à l'Orange) before, but it's one of my dad's favourite dishes so I made it on request. It turned out fabulously and the sauce was to die for. It had a little bit of everything: sweet, sour, salty with a hint of bitterness...delightful! I served this with sautéed brussel sprouts topped with toasted chopped almonds. Yum!

Orchard, sweet & crisp



Golden something or other apples that my family picked over the weekend, are crisp, sweet with just the right amount of tartness. Hoping I'll find the time on the weekend to go with Rich, because I'd really like to pick some Honey Crisp apples!!

Hi, I'm Janetta from Toronto. I cook, bake and often veganize recipes. 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 really cute and a little bit nosy. You'll see a lot of photos of her too!
