I’ve got the goods

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Oh! Things!|Ottawa|Photography|Recipes and Food

Oh my pretties. You have NO IDEA what I’ve been doing today.

I will give you a clue. Feast your eyes on this:

just call me cookie monster

It’s not what you think.

I’m on deadline and don’t have time to write right now. But I’ll be back later.

Since its not what we think, I’m going to say you sampled/ate those desserts all day today :)
Though if you made those I’d love the recipe for the top bars :)

Those top bars look like one of the ‘top 10’ desserts from either Chatelaine or Cdn Living last year – soooo good!

I’m with Porter…I love that dish. I’d gladly clear some space in my cupboard for one of those!

I know who did that baking and therefore know how much you enjoyed eating them. And the pics you took are incredible!

Andrea I just saw you on CBC tv news at 6. Nice! Sad block parents in Ottawa will no longer exist.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human offspring: Emma (24) and Sarah (22). During the day I work as a writer at the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
