Cornmeal Waffles

 Sweater-weather is perhaps one of my favourite seasons. It’s when it is too cold for a summer dress, but still too warm to break out a parka.

Lemon Date Scones

For me, starting a new year always means change. In the best possible way of course. To mark 2014, I have started going back to school. Yes, my life has officially gained momentum as I narrow in on where I want to take my career. So, not only am I working full-time, but I am also studying Public Relations and Communications.
