Orange, cream cheese and chocolate loaf

Orange, cream cheese and chocolate loaf

Three of my most favourite ingredients all lovingly crammed into one loaf.  Three of my most favourite ingredients soon to be all lovingly crammed into my mouth. That’s just how it works around here. Today’s tastetastic triumph comes from one of my fave baking bloggers, Miss Joy the Baker. I followed her recipe to the T apart from one small detail.  As you may notice I took it upon myself to add an extra handful of dark chocolate chunks. And why wouldn’t I??  Speaking of dark chocolate chunks, this is the variety I opted for: Share the...
Coping with stress and anxiety

Coping with stress and anxiety

I already touched upon my unfortunate brushes with the soul-sucking monster that is anxiety in THIS post way back when we first started blogging together. I told it like it was. I tend to do that. As well as episodical anxiety (haven’t had any since 2009. Where is the nearest wooden object??) I also apparently suffer from truth Tourettes and find it extremely difficult (not impossibe, I’m human) to tell a lie. At least you’ll always know where you stand, Warriors. I, personally, cherish honesty and transparency in a person and appreciate spades that are spades. Share the...

Prince Charles: a royal pain in the ***?

Prince Charles: a royal pain in the ***?

Poor Charlie. He went and put his foot in it and now the whole world and his wife are breathing down his neck. In case you haven’t caught the news this is what happened. Charles and Camilla were paying a visit to the Canadian Immigration Museum in Halifax and Charles got chatting to Marianne Ferguson, a volunteer at said museum. Marianne told the Prince how she fled from Poland to Canada in 1939 and how her family had perished in the Nazi concentration camps.  Charles’ response? “And now Putin is doing just about the same as Hitler”. Or something along those lines. I say something along those lines because there are several versions of the words he apparently spoke depending upon which newspaper you read. Share the...
5 ways to keep the sniffles at bay!

5 ways to keep the sniffles at bay!

I’ve had more colds in the past year than I’ve had in my entire almost 36 years  of existence – no exaggeration. September – first cold of the academic year November– had  a cold which turned into laryngitis and no voice for almost three days. (Yes, the world was a quieter place for a brief spell). December – had a cold which turned into a chest infection. February – had strep throat which had started off as cold. April – had a cold. At the time of writing – I have, yup, you guessed it, a cold. It is currently sitting in my chest and every now and again I hock up an impressive amount of phlegm. Beautiful. Share the...
