Hi there, I’m Courtney.
This is a food and lifestyle blog, a record of my pace of life as an introverted homebody. It is a collection of notes outlining my attempts at slow, sustainable living, taking the scenic route through eastern Ontario (where I call home!) and indulging my love of baked goods and wine–often.
When I’m not blogging, I can likely be found in flour-dusted kitchen baking bread or exploring the region with my partner.
On the blog:
Better baking: My goal is to start incorporating more whole grain flours (local when possible), both for nutrition and for flavour. My philosophy of better baking is about finding ways to indulge while also being kind to my body; using more whole grains and less sugar means I can have dessert more often.
Healthier homemaking: The past few years have been a slow process of ridding our house of conventional cleaning products and personal care products, while moving toward finding non-toxic and more natural alternatives. This section of the blog is my dedication to making these products myself or finding brands I can trust that are transparent about what’s in their products.
Conscious cooking: My cooking journey involves learning the seasonality of the foods we eat, how to grow my own food, and how to nourish my body with more vegetables, legumes, and whole grains, with a small amount of animal-based protein (mostly eggs and fish).
