Every season has its redeeming qualities, some more than others. Winter tests my creativity more than the other seasons. Fireside anything is how I get through winter with a cheerful attitude!

Yes, there have been times in my life when I did not live in a home that had a fireplace, though not often. Even when I was a young gal, living on my own for those earlier years.

I looked for apartments that offered one, and luckily I found them. But, for those other times, I would buy a fake electric unit that looked like it had a fire inside, and it did the trick!


Why fire? I love to cook. I have always loved to cook and even in those earlier years when I had my first apartments living on my own, I loved to have friends over and cook for them.

Fire, was always a natural ambiance when the days were short and we had to create social times indoors.

A fire beckons to come gather around, bring a plate, pour a drink, sip something hot… just be. A fire transforms my imagination to the outdoors.

Now that I am older and my children are all grown and having families of their own, I look to find something in each of my days that inspires me to go into the kitchen.

Once there, I am inspired, cook something amazing, have friends over, or simply strike a match, cook something amazing just for me and dine right there in front of the fire.

Who needs entertainment when you imagination can be set aflame by the simple strike of a match!

Where You’ll Find Me?

You will always find me in the kitchen, right here on my blog, or on social media sharing inspiration with my worldwide friends. If I am not in any of those places… you will find me right here, Fireside!

Have a lovely, warm, delicious and inspired winter.

My Muffin Madness


In my family, I’ve always been known as the ‘Muffin Queen’. Out of necessity, I created muffins for breakfast, lunch, on the go snacks, sometimes dinner and a sweet yet healthyish treat for dessert!
