    Peanut Butter Banana Waffles coz it’s Waffle Day!

    So apparently today is International Waffle Day! Despite the fact that I haven’t posted any waffle recipe on the blog until today, waffles actually have a special place in my heart. I love them! I love the way they look (especially the round waffles), and I love how they’re crunchy on the outside and pancake-soft on the inside. I tend to be a sucker for those kinds of things, including crusty bread. Waffles can be made in a gazillion different flavours just like pancakes, but there are days when you just want to make something low maintenance.

    The thing about new year’s + Baked Oatmeal To-Go

    I think most people expect to feel differently every time the new year swings around; like some sort of strange, unexplainable feeling of rebirth is supposed to stir inside them. The truth is, this very rarely happens in the magnitude we imagine, and most of the time it happens depending on whether we want it to or not. Change is hardly instant.
