Hi there, I’m Courtney.
This is a food and lifestyle blog, a record of my pace of life as an introvert. 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, reading a book with wine in hand or exploring the region with my partner.
On the blog:
Travel: While we do hit the road every once in a while, for the most part our travels consist of places in southeastern Ontario; I’m interested in going off the beaten path and finding unique gems near home. Having a small travel budget means we just get creative with where we go and how we get there.
Lifestyle: We’re trying our best to lighten our footprint and take the hippie dip route when we can. I’ll try to share any homemade recipes/formulas or store bought products we love that replace conventional products.
The occasional recipe: I guess I should start by saying that this used to be a food blog. I have a hard time letting go of that content, so I’ve decided to let it make a home on a page here, without being the primary focus. My goal with baking is to continue incorporating more whole grain flours (local when possible), both for nutrition and for flavour. 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).
