Ladurée French Macarons Recipe – Easier Than It Seems!

I’ve been really wanting to try baking macarons ever since I started baking. Macarons, crepes, and chocolate covered strawberries are my all-time favourite desserts so I really want to master all three. Problem is: macarons are super hard to make, so I’ve been biding my time before I attempt them. You need really precise measurements and you need to do everything exactly as ‘they’ tell you to for them to turn out well. Luckily, little old me was gifted with a baking scale from my sister for Christmas, so today was dedicated to my first ever macaron baking adventure! Here is my Ladurée French Macarons Recipe….

Thunder Bay’s Botanical Conservatory

Friends! One of my favourite places is Thunder Bay’s Botanical Conservatory. It’s been awhile since I posted something non-beauty related, and I was just looking through my pictures and came across the some from here in the conservatory! It’s an absolute oasis in the city. Whenever I’m there I feel like I’m in another world. I’m Alice in Wonderland. It’s perfect.

Does it work? Is it tasty? Read on to find out!

Zoella’s Pumpkin Spice Cupcake Review


Who’s down for a little autumnal baking?! I used Zoella’s Pumpkin Spice Cupcake recipe, which you can find on her blog here. Her’s is based on one she found at allrecipes.com (which is another website I love for recipes, though it can be a little hit or miss). And here, ladies and gentlemen, is my Zoella’s Pumpkin Spice Cupcake Review in which I answer your burning question: does it actually taste nice?  Zoella’s Pumpkin Spice Cupcake recipe is in the UK standard grams instead of cups, so the first thing I did when I saw it (weeks ago), was convert it all into cups using an online converter. Big issue: it converts them to amounts that can be quite difficult to use, like 2.8 cups… what does this MEAN? (I ended up using very rough amounts). Moral of the story: invest in cup sizes AND a baking scale. HAVE IT ALL. BE UNIVERSAL.

*Note: I have since invested in a baking scale, super cheap and super worth it.

Pumpkinfest at Gammondale Farm

I LOVE AUTUMN!!!!

As soon as the leaves start changing colours I am an enthusiastic little child again. And the best part of autumn in my childhood was Pumpkinfest at Gammondale Farm. So naturally I went back. I love everything fall: hikes in pretty coloured forests, and pumpkin patch dates and corn mazes and pumpkin pie! Yet come Autumn every year, I rarely do anything particularly autumn-y. This year I really wanted to make an effort to change that. All my favourite fall memories are from my childhood. Spending a day out with the animals on a farm, swinging on tire swings in a hay barn, pumpkin picking at a pumpkin patch, and going for a hay rides (and falling off)! All of this comes back to Pumpkinfest at Gammondale Farm. …
