My Story

Hi and thanks for stopping by!

My name is Janine and I’m the voice behind this blog. I currently live and work in Vancouver. When I’m not busy with work, I love spending my free time baking, cooking, and ‘photo-shooting’. (haha, total newbie when it comes to photography/ editing, still learning!)

I initially decided to start this blog a few years back as a means to express and share my passion for food, baking, and cookie art – it was basically my creative outlet. If you hadn’t noticed, I’m actually a relatively shy and quiet person. lol Can you tell through my writing? My initial thoughts were that a blog would be a good way to ‘anonymously’ share my passion with the world. I thought of myself as just this anonymous quiet person behind this blog.

However, after blogging for these past few years, I’ve learned that blogging is more than just posting content – it is actually its own online community. This has not only fueled my confidence in ‘speaking up’, but also in how I’ve come to view myself, my blog, and this whole online community. I love connecting with other bloggers – reading and seeing what they have posted, but more importantly, getting to know the person or voice behind the blog.

I hope you’ve enjoyed your visit and really hope you come back!

  1. Janine, so glad I found you today! Instead of commenting more and more I thought I’d just say that all of your recipes look so amazing and I’ve already bookmarked a bunch to try myself :) Thanks so much for writing and I look forward to reading everything else!

      • You are very welcome Janine! I found out you can participate again and again if you want, so that is good news! :-) At first I didn’t know you could… I am a newbie around here. :-)


  2. Hi Janine, I love your blog. Your photos are absolutely gorgeous.

    I was wondering if you’d be interested in participating in the Writing Process Blog Tour. I’m not sure if you’ve heard of it. It’s very similar to the Blogger Awards. But in this version you write about your writing process and what you’re currently working on. If you’re interested, I can email you more information. My email address is Let me know as soon as you can whether you’re interested =)

    Here is one of this week’s in case you wanted to check it out first.

    Have a great weekend!
