Can you believe there’s only 12 days left until Christmas? When I started writing this post it there was still 16 days until Christmas and I was still on a fun high from our trip to the Noel Festival. It was amazing! We saw thousands of lights, got pictures with Santa Clause, we got to pet reindeers, sat in giant teddy bears, found elves hidden in the light maze and sipped on Crantini’s. That was just half of the fun! And as we walked through the magical light show, the only thing that was missing was a cookie in one hand! It was then that I got the inspiration for this week’s Friday Finds. Christmas Cookies!
Every year at Christmas time, there was always a tin of Danish butter cookies on the table to share with family and friends when they stopped by for a visit. Growing up, they were one of my favorite cookies next to Sugar cookies of course. With their buttery flavor and hints of vanilla, there truly is nothing like a butter cookie.
In Trinidad we sip on Ponche de Creme for Christmas, but this year I’m changing things up, keeping with my Christmas in Canada traditions and sipping on some Mulled Wine. Definitely a new and exciting experience for me, but I’m always up for a challenge (especially when it comes to food) and trying mulled wine for the first time was a great way to get into the holiday season.
Happy Friday Foodies! We’re trying something new and we hope you enjoy it!
Let’s face it, we all need inspiration in some sort of form or fashion. It’s hard creating recipes everyday whether it be for breakfast lunch or dinner. From chefs to home cooks, we all look somewhere for inspiration.

As the song goes..It’s The Most Wonderful Time of The Year! Christmas is only a few short weeks away and I am so excited for this Christmas Season. For the first time in over a decade I’ll be having a White Christmas, and as they say, all the songs make sense. Haha.
Christmas in my favorite time of the year, hands down! The feeling in the air, the trees, the lights and the baking are just a few of the many things that speak to my heart and soul. So as per Christmas tradition, I’m kicking off my season with cookies! And I can’t think of a better recipe to bake and create than these Gluten Free M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Happy October my Gluten Free Foodies! It’s a new month and that means it’s an opportunity for new beginnings. And we’re off to a great start with my three month visit to Calgary!
It’s sooooo exciting! There’s so much to see, do and of course create. I have so many recipes in my head and ideas that I had to start writing them down before they all disappeared. And on that has been rolling around in my head for quite some time are these Gluten Free Banana Poppy Seed Muffins.
