The Story

My name is Tori.  I am a stay-at-home mother to two wonderful little girls.  I first started this site because I wanted to start baking.  It was something I loved to do when I was a little girl but as I grew older I stopped doing it.

Then I had my daughter.  For me, adjusting to the life of a stay-at-home mom was hard.  I was in my early twenties (21, in fact) and went from being a driven university student who had a game plan to a mommy who just wanted to be with her daughter.

While being a stay-at-home is very rewarding I felt a bit bored and lost when my daughter was taking naps so I started to blog.  Though I blog on-and-off I find it is a great way to keep my passion alive, which is baking and the English language (my BA is in English literature with a minor in professional writing).

Now I have two wonderful daughters and get the chance to live in Whistler, British Columbia Canada!

Life is not just good, it’s fantastic.

  1. Hi Tori,
    Ashley suggested we take a look at your blog at work.
    WOW, it’s fantastic and you are such an artist. I especially liked reading all your different stories about recipes and your childhood.
    I too have always been passionate about cooking and baking, and probable need to get the cook books and Kitchen Aid from under the covers.
    I sure know my husband and 2 boys will love it.

    Thanks again Tori for sharing


  2. Hi Tori!

    We haven’t met yet but I work with Ashley at the detachment. I just wanted to let you know that I love your baking. Those cookies last week were amazing- nice and soft! Also, I loved your Christmas baked goods platter. In fact, I’m the person that you gave me the recipe for cookie candy cands. I’m thinking of making a batch for Easter but maybe changing the shape to a cross? I love baking too although I haven’t done much of it since I moved to Whistler. I make a mean oatmeal raisin cookie. Anyways! Keep the baked goods coming because they are delicious.

    Your #1 fan,

  3. I found your blog while searching for Silver Palate recipes. I enjoyed reading your stories and your photography is lovely. Do you cook from the Silver Palate very much? I just got a copy and am working my way through it. It’s nice to read about what other stay-at-home moms are up to.

    • Oh wow, thank you. I love the silver palate cookbook. I’ve made many awesome recipes from there. I hope yours gets a lot you use as well. xx
