Missing Ingredient {Monthly Subscription Box}

24 Apr

Good afternoon everyone!

I hope you are all having a fabulous Wednesday so far!

I am not going to do my regular chit chat thing today, I will just get right into it!

So a few weeks ago I came across this gourmet food subscription service when I was browsing the web. After looking into it a little further I realized that it was being run by a local gourmet food shop called Well Seasoned.  Along with their food shop, they also host cooking classes taught by local chefs. They always have lots of new events up and coming so if you’re in the lower mainland you should definitely check out their site for all the fun stuff they have in store!

Like I said, they recently started a gourmet food subscription box called “Missing Ingredient.” When I saw it I really wanted to share it with you guys and lucky for me, Angie over at Missing Ingredient was kind enough to send me a sample April box to try! I got it a week or so ago and I took some photos so I can show you all how it works.

Here we go!

The box is packaged really well, they put lots of shredded brown paper in the box to prevent anything from breaking or moving around.

Hmm….what’s going to be in the box!?

find out what’s in the box!

Weekend in Photos

19 Apr

Good Morning Lovelies!

I hope your Friday is off to a wonderful beginning. I promised yesterday that I would show you some photos from my little mini trip last weekend. I went with two friends to a cabin on the Sunshine Coast. The cabin was on a small island only accessible by water taxi and so it was an adventure getting there and back. I had SO much fun and hope to go back soon!!

My Go To Pasta Salad – Step by Step

18 Apr

Morning lovelies!

I hope you are all having a fabulous Thursday so far! I was going through some of my photos and realized I made this pasta salad a few weeks ago and I totally forgot to post the recipe.

Silly me.

Well, on the plus side, I didn’t make you a real pasta salad and then forget to give it to and try to serve it up to you guys 2 weeks later.

That would be weird.

See, this just shows us that there is always a silver lining to every situation. You’re welcome.

Anyways…

I had a really fun weekend with the girls like I mentioned last week, and I am going to do a post of some pictures for tomorrow so that you can see what we got up to.

For now, I have a bunch of photos to post so let’s get on with the recipe, shall we?

Dreamy Peanut Butter Mousse Pie

11 Apr

Oh my!

You are all in for a treat today, let me tell you.

We’ll get to the pie in a minute but first, let’s talk about how it’s Thursday!! Who has fun weekend plans?

Ooh, I do, I do!

This Friday I am going to check out an amazing singer who happens to be a family friend of ours! Her performer name is Jet Tangerine and she does some awesome covers as well as beautiful original songs. She will be playing at a neighborhood pub on Friday night in Langley so I am going with a few friends to check her out!

If you want to see what she’s all about and listen to some of her lovely music, I am sure she would appreciate you stopping by her YouTube channel! You can also find her on Facebook. It’s always great to support local up and coming artists and I would be so grateful if you would all show her some love! Tell her I sent you :)

Oh, and if you live in the Langley area, feel free to stop in, it is an open event at Barons Manor Pub in Port Kells. Jet will be playing on and off from 6-9pm.

My weekend of fun doesn’t end there either! I am heading out to my friends cabin, just 3 of us ladies are planning a lovely relaxing weekend on a secluded island. OoOoh! Sounds wonderful right? I think we will probably enjoy a few bottles of wine as well.

It’s so important to have time with your friends, just as much as it is for guys to have their “Man Time” as well.

One last thing before we move on to the recipe, I would love love love to do a fun giveaway once we reach 1500 likes on Facebook!  If you could head over there and give me a like and maybe share with your friends, that would be great! I will announce the giveaway once we get to that big 1500! Only 188 to go.

Okay, lets get on to some food considering that’s what this site is all about, right? Who am I kidding? I just write about what I want!

But for now, what I want is some peanut butter pie!

Caprese BLT Sandwich {Step-By-Step}

9 Apr

Meow my kittens!

How is everyone doing today? I am on my second cup of coffee and feeling amazing!

Ha.

Can’t wait for 3pm when my energy levels drop and I feel like I’m gonna pass out. Anyone else have the 3pm slump?

Well last night before I headed off to workout, I was at home alone and decided to make myself a yummy dinner. I stopped at this cute little store we have nearby and bought all the stuff to make this sandwich.
