Fun fact about Danni..I am not really a dessert person. I would pass on the sweets for a salty chip any day. Although if that dessert happens to be Creme Brulee, then bring it on. So as St. Patrick’s Day approaches, I was trying to think of a green food, that I would love with out the green food colouring. So why not a Matcha Creme Brulee dessert. Yum!
You would really be surprised at how easy this dessert is to make. With a name like ‘Creme Brulee’ (in my french accent), you would think it is difficult, but not so.
Last year our blog featured an article on keeping the love alive in your relationship – Valentine’s Day as a Mature Couple. This year, we are exploring Five Ways to Connect with your teen this Valentine’s Day.
It is not easy to foster engagement and connection with our teens and young adults. Between the preoccupation with their phones, and keeping up with the latest social media craze (Tik Tok anyone?) most of the time we feel like they really don’t want us around. Sure, they need us to get them from point A to point B (until they have a car of their own) and make sure they are fed, but otherwise, we are left to try and figure out the best way to be a part of their world. So, in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we have come up with a few fun ideas on ways to connect with your teen.

I always love having little things to look forward to at this time of year. Whether it is a dinner with friends, a massage or a drive to Banff for a mini get away – these are the little joys that make those short days and long nights manageable. Also, my husband travels for work a lot, and I have been travelling with our daughter so it also feels like we are ships passing in the night. It might be time for a special dinner?
