Apples Season!

Fall is official. Cooler weather is here but still absolutely beautiful outside.  This past weekend was picture perfect with sunny and warm temps; perfect for a visit to the apple farm and pick some delicious, local apples. We have been going to Myers Apple Farm for many years.  In fact, when the kids were younger,… Continue reading Apples Season!


Val’s Healing Garden – Calendula

  One of the great joys of growing your own healing herbs and flowers is the gratification of knowing where the seeds came from, and what went into nourishing the soil to feed your garden. This summer I sourced several seeds from Urban Harvest in Toronto, a grassroots business with 40 years of experience growing… Continue reading Val’s Healing Garden – Calendula

Apple Cinnamon Donuts…and they are Vegan

How about a Re Blog? Well I know it seems kind of lazy, and yes, that is how I am feeling lately but hey, these are donuts! Apples are in season and the crop is stellar! So why not make some apple cinnamon donuts. If that doesn’t scream Fall then I don’t know what does…Pumpkin Spice? I say Apple Cinnamon wins that round!


Val and I had a good laugh when we took a look at the blog over the last week or so and noticed that there seemed to be a lot of orange dishes on our table lately.  It is the season of pumpkin and with the colder weather, we both were in the moods for curried dishes.  Luckily, pumpkin isn’t the only thing in season right now.  We have a luck of having so many apple farms around our area that you can’t help to use them in baking during the Fall.

Apples and cinnamon go together almost as well as peanut butter and jam.  So on this cold Sunday morning, an apple cinnamon donut would go great with a cup of coffee.  The recipe is vegan and can be made gluten free as well.  They are baked in a donut pan, which you can find quite easily.

Digital Purge

The urge to simplify comes in many different forms.  As we attempt to purge physical things we have in our life, maybe things that are getting in the way, we can do the same with our digital life.  Face it, most of us have a digital life.  A life that consists of pictures (lots of… Continue reading Digital Purge
