🎄🚗 Christmas Nerds Home Tour 2019 @homesfortheholidaysylw What a fun day crisscrossing the city with a van full of ladies laughing all the way. So much inspiration in the beautifully decorated homes and wonderful fundraiser for Hospice. Lots to dream about and hopefully create a few ideas for my family this year. Definitely feeling the itch to get the Christmas baking orders rolling again soon. 🎄🤶 @ Kelowna, British Columbia ... See MoreSee Less

👩🍳 If you’re a baker this is The Mothership. I do a happy dance (in my head mostly) whenever I get to visit them in Langley, BC. That’s a wall of cookie cutters 💗 @scoopnsave @ Langley, British Columbia ... See MoreSee Less

🍰 Research and Development. 🍮 Whilst visiting Lena on Vancouver Island I pull her past bakery cases to check out the sweet confections and talented bakers. Honestly never have drooled (yet) on any of display cases. Shiny, fluffy Bee 🐝 Stings at Goats on the Roof, Coombs. Gorgeous fruit tart and floral cheeses at Quality Foods in Qualicum Beach. And lastly, teeny tiny luscious cheesecakes and super cool hamburger cake from Thrifty Foods in Parksville. 👩🍳 👨🏼🍳 @ Nanoose Bay, British Columbia ... See MoreSee Less

🥧🍎 Apple Pie Bars 🍎🥧 This recipe goes back aways to a church cookbook printed in 1986. And this was from a good friend of my Moms. Mom used to drag me along to pick apples and windfalls for juicing from her friends orchard and we filled the trunk of the car. What was embarrassing and annoying then (high school girl trying to appear cool) have become fond memories and I cherish the time and baking skills I learned along the way with her. I’ve posted a pic of the Friendly Village dishes before and today someone noticed them in a pie baking group I’m in. The things that people connect with continues to amaze me. I’m a late comer to the party but I’ve embraced it now - Happy Fall Y’all! 🍁🍂 ... See MoreSee Less
The pic didn’t translate well from IG here’s the recipe in full.
My Auntie Mary made these growing up and they are a fave. I get whenever I am at Davison Orchards
I think the real take-away here is that you are in a 'pie baking group' lol <3
I love your picture of the recipe ♥️. If ever there was a statement of a ‘tried and true’, ‘stands the test of time, family and friends’, it’s the splatters and baking marks. ♥️♥️
You are sharing your recipe?! Mine will not look like yours ever! Love the argyle pumpkin
Corn flakes love it
AMAZING !!!! ❤️

☕️🌹 🍰 A Tea Story - Pam @vintageteaparties.ca and I hosted an Afternoon Tea a little while back at a lovely seniors home in Kelowna. We were happy to see we had even made it to their advertising as we loaded the goodies, china and linens up to the activity room. We were also delighted to hear that it was their best attended event to date, what an honour. Everyone came dressed in their finest threads and a few ladies even had fascinators while several gentlemen sported bow ties. We always start with Pamelas fun intro to tea etiquette and some history of “taking tea”. All of our events have special elements but this one touched our hearts when a sweet lady approached us as the tea was winding down to show us the gloves she had worn. They were her mothers’s tatted lace gloves which she wore to her own wedding 75 yrs ago and this lady brought them out to wear and reminisce at our event. 💗 These are things that motivate me when my feet are burning from standing and my back is sore from lifting and all the baking. Every second of preparation and effort come together in that very moment. We also love to incorporate the Murchie's Tea & Coffee history along the way. #afternoontealife #scones #okanaganliving @ Mission Villas Retirement Community ... See MoreSee Less
