My Favorite Recipe

Today I wanted to share one of my absolute favorite recipes in the entire world, and no, that is not an over exaggeration! My Mum used to make this dish when we lived in England, and now it has become the meal I make every Christmas for Ry and I. It makes me feel all warm, homey and comfy cozy.

This recipe is...



5lbs russet potatoes
Olive oil
Savoy cabbage
Blue cheese
Marble cheddar and mozzarella
Smoked Gouda

First things first, wash and slice up your potatoes into 1/4 of an inch slices. If the skins are good on the potatoes you can leave them on. Put the potato slices into a big bowl (or two bowls if you don't have one that's big enough ), drizzle with olive oil (just enough to gently coat the potato slices), sprinkle with salt and cracked black pepper to taste, and put aside.

Slice entire medium sized savoy cabbage. Fill a large pot with 1/2 an inch of water, put on a medium heat, add the savoy cabbage, and place the pot lid on top. This will let the savoy cabbage steam and soften. I like to leave the savoy cabbage in the pot long enough till all the water evaporates and the edges of the sliced cabbage blacken a little. Stir every now and again. Once cooked, put aside.

Prepare the cheeses by grating the Gouda and marbled cheddar and mozzarella, and crumble the feta and blue cheese.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Grab one or maybe two large glass casserole dishes and start layering your ingredients beginning with potatoes, then cabbage, then the cheeses. Repeat this until all ingredients are used up. I always try to end with cheese on top this way it gets nice and bubbly.

Put the dishes into the oven for roughly an hour to an hour and a half. I usually check it every half an hour by taking a sharp knife and seeing if it will easily poke through the potatoes - if it does your dish is ready! Cooking times may vary depending on the type of oven you are using. This is what your dish should look like when it's all cooked.

This dish is my absolute favorite, and I get excited to cook and especially to eat it every year!



  1. Very, very tasty dish for sure.

Not Another Minimalist Bedroom Tour

I was excited for this post. I was going to share what our bedroom looks like. I was going to show you how few knick-knacks we have, the type of bedding we currently use, and my big fluffy throw pillows. I was going to show you how simple our bedroom has become since de-cluttering it a couple of years ago. I was going to show you how a small master bedroom is all you really need. I was going to do a minimalist bedroom tour because who doesn't like to snoop around someone else's house and see their take on minimalism? I know I do...

...That is until I read this post by Cait Flanders and changed my mind altogether. Her post, A Home is Meant to Be Lived In, Not Looked At really opened my eyes and made me rethink what I would achieve through posting something like a minimalist bedroom tour; after reading what she had to say on the matter I realized the answer was not much.

"It doesn’t matter what my home looks like or what your home looks like. It doesn’t matter what “decora…

Saying Goodbye to Social Media?

Late last year I decided to delete my Facebook and Pinterest accounts. I had already deleted my Snapchat, Twitter, and LinkedIn accounts but these two were the toughies. I thought about it a lot, and couldn't believe what a seemingly difficult decision this was turning into. I'd often say to myself 'It's only Facebook!' as if to egg myself on to actually take the leap and delete it. Then I watched this video and made this post, and decided enough was enough. I deleted both accounts and you know what? I haven't missed them at all, not even a little bit. Now all I have left is this blog and Instagram. Instagram has to be by far my favorite social media platform; I've found some truly inspirational people through Instagram and get to follow along on their journeys, and their posts inspire me to make changes, challenge myself, appreciate the little things, and grow. With that said there is a darker side to Instagram for me and that is the side where seconds tu…

Getting Back Into Alignment


That is the word my mind had been searching for, for weeks. Something had felt off, something didn't sit quite right, something felt a little out of place, something felt out of ... alignment.

It is amazing how sometimes all it takes is for our minds to think of a single word and suddenly and all at once it allows us to see the truth of a situation. As soon as I found the word alignment something clicked into place; I had a light-bulb moment, and knew exactly why I had been feeling like I was in a funk of sorts: I was out of alignment with myself.

For me being in alignment means having my thoughts and beliefs match up with my actions and how I live my life on a day to day basis, and somehow as if it crept up on me out of nowhere I was no longer in alignment with myself. As I began to think of all the ways my thoughts and beliefs didn't match up with what I was doing I understood why I had been carrying around this irritable and weird feeling in the pit of my stomac…
