I can’t believe we are half way through September already. It’s crazy. Our house is back into our regular schedule again and the regular hockey season is starting up again. Now that it has been getting darker earlier and the kids are getting to bed at a descent time hubby and I have had a little more time in the evenings to ourselves.

We have been dating Netflix virtually every night…lol. Vampire Diaries to be specific. I am hooked to this show. We are only on the second season but I can’t stop watching it. Thank goodness we still have plenty more to watch because I hate that feeling you get when a series ends. I get so sad that there is no more to watch.

Does this only happen to me? anyone with me on that one?

Anyhow, I’ve got a super yummy focaccia recipe to share with you. Bread can seem intimidating but it’s actually super easy to make. If you have never tried it, I am telling you, just try this recipe. You’ll be hooked. It’s a good place to start, plus your house will smell so good and you’ll be so proud of yourself.


Focaccia bread has a signature look. It’s the dimples in the dough, they’re tiny little pockets you make with your fingers and they fill up with olive oil and herbs.


I love how it’s crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. The roasted garlic and parmesan covering the whole top are so aromatic and tasty.


Give it a go! I promise you won’t be disappointed.
