I just had the best day yesterday!

First of all, it was a long weekend here in Canada, so I had a very nice and relaxing day. Woke up with nothing to do but drink coffee, enjoy the sunshine and... well, I still needed to mark papers, but at least I could do it on a relaxing manner. 

I also got to make a dinner takes longer to make than my typical 30 minute meals. Which, at times like these, is a real luxury for me.

I predict that it will be pasta every night at my house until the end of the school year.

This is what has been on my menu for the past few days: lemon garlic pastaspaghetti a la homer and chicken and salsa pasta. What do they have in common?

Well other then the fact that they are all made with pasta, they are all ready in under 30 minutes. Because when you have stacks of papers to mark, you need to save as much time as possible.

Thursdays: my one day off a week. My one day to have my oven turned on the entire day and bake until my kitchen looks like a bakery.

Why do I do this to myself? Well, this way I can get 3 months off for the summer. 3 months of making ice cream, travelling the world and spending days at home in my pajamas. Sounds like the dream.

Having an abundance of pepperoni in my house doesn't need to be a bad thing.

I mean, after having this pepperoni pizza for about the umpteenth time this past few weeks, it might be time to switch things up a little bit. Maybe calling back to my university days of having grilled cheese sandwiches for every meal?

I know. I like my thinking too.

I cannot believe that it is May already!

First Monday of the month, counting down the days until the end of the school year. Because in the meantime, I have no time or energy to come up with recipe ideas for my blog.

Luckily for me, it is the secret recipe club reveal day, which means that I didn't even need to come up with a creative recipe idea. I just test out a different blogger's creations!

A couple of weeks ago, I bought a bag of sliced pepperoni. This bag didn't look like much. It was 500g worth which I thought would be perfect for a couple of pizzas, and it would be done. Boy, was I wrong!

I have been making this pepperoni pizza weekly since then, and it doesn't even look like I scratched the surface of the pepperoni in the bag! Which only means, in the weeks ahead, expect to see more pepperoni recipes on the blog.

Also, if anyone has any suggestions on other things to make using pepperoni, I would very much appreciate it.

Pumpkin Molasses Cookies

These pumpkin molasses cookies are the ultimate fall cookie! And they so soft and fluffy, you won't be able to stop eating them.

I have a confession to make. I am addicted to making cookies.

I find that when I have a bowl, some flour, some butter and some sugar, anything is possible. It is also my zen place. A place where all my troubles and stresses can evaporate into thin air while I mix and mash and create.

Another advantage to cookie making is licking the spoon. Always lick the spoon.
