January/February Update

I have not forgotten you all. Once I started to try to get back to blogging, I remembered one of the things that was frustrating me and was one of the contributing factors to me stopping, and that was my computer.

Romancing the Capital 2018

This past weekend was the Romancing the Capital book conference here in Ottawa. This was the fourth year for the conference, and I'm very happy to say that the organizer, Eve Langlais, is planning on doing another in 2019! Yay! As you may have guessed, this conference focuses on romance novels in all forms from sweet to well, basically whatever you can think of. This was my third year attending, and the second year in which my friend, Dianne, attended with me...and we are planning on attending next year as well, and maybe dragging along another friend or two.

A Masquerade Mask

Any of you who were following my blog last year at about this time, may remember that I attended Romancing the Capital (RTC), a reader and author get together in Ottawa (Kanata to be exact), and it's coming up this week! I'm so excited!
The format is slightly different this year, in that there will only be a dinner/dance on Friday night, rather than one on both Friday and Saturday nights, but I'm thrilled that the theme for this year is a masquerade ball.

Fantastic Bake Along – Maple Nut Scones

Hello everyone! I'm back for another Fantastic Bake Along post! I've really been missing blogging over the past month, but I have been so busy with work that when I have had down time, the last thing I wanted to do was turn on my computer and write. I hope things slow down a bit soon...at least to the point that I'm not working after hours, and on weekends to stay caught up. But that's enough of that, on to the real purpose for this post!

Fantastic Bake Along – Rosemary Muffins

I am happy to finally get posting my entry to the Fantastic Bake Along - Rosemary Muffins, hosted by Tracy at It's a T-Sweets Day. This month's recipe was chosen by Brenna at Crochet539 and the full recipe can be found at Taste of Home. When I first saw the photos of this week's bake along recipe, I was excited to make some muffins. My excitement only grew once I realized the muffins were savoury, and contained two of my favourite ingredients...black olives, and goat cheese. Yum!
