It's been so long...

It's been so long, where do I start.  How about I just skip the past 2 years and start today.      Start fresh, start again.  I like that idea.  A sense of renewal, a new beginning.  In fact that just about sums up my life completely at the moment...a new beginning.

Without getting deep, sentimental sad and perhaps a bit boring,  I will just say that I have spent the last 2 years finding myself.  Recreating myself and coming to a lot of decisions.  Decisions that today,  I can say I am very proud of and really happy with.   I have found myself again and I couldn't be happier.

On that note, there a few things in life that just make me so happy, and one of those things is Coconut.  The smell of coconut just make me think that I am on a beach,  somewhere tropical.

The sun is shining in Ottawa right now,  but I can't be on a beach somewhere tropical today, so I will bring the tropics here.

This is a wonderful recipe I found on Pinterest for Coconut Raspberry Ice Cream.

Go on, have it for breakfast, it's healthy and I won't tell a soul!

Coconut Raspberry Ice Cream
Recipe courtesy of

2 cans of chilled Coconut Milk
3/4 cup of sugar (I would use less next time)
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup of raspberries (fresh or frozen)

*Place the cans of coconut milk in the fridge the night before.

Place coconut milk, sugar, and vanilla in a blender.  Blend until combined.

Churn in an ice cream maker.

In the last few minutes of churning add the raspberries.

Serve immediately or freeze the leftovers (ha!) for later.

P.S.  It's good to be back!
