This was my first time, so I was a little hesitant to spend the day with a group of people I barely knew, but it turned out to be a lot of fun. Everyone was friendly and helpful.

My son loves all things chocolate. Yesterday afternoon when he was out playing I decided to try out this new recipe I found on Food and Wine. The recipe is quick and easy using very basic ingredients, you will most probably have most of them at home already. The result is a beautiful, moist, chocolatey cake.
Roby loves helping out in the kitchen especially when it comes to baking, but every now and then I love surprising him with his favourite chocolate cake. His bigs eyes and cheesy smile makes me light up.
The best thing in the world is seeing them smile because of you…

I love salmon because of its amazing health benefits. It is packed with omega-3 fatty acids, selenium, vitamin B12, A and D which are all good elements for our immunity systems. It is also a super versatile fish, you can prepare it in so many ways and pair it with a variety of dishes. This is one of my family’s favourite weeknight dinner. Read more
