MAPLE WHISKY ROASTED ALMONDS

MAPLE WHISKY ROASTED ALMONDS

Since this is the first weekend of Fall and we’ve had our first snowfall, I guess it’s safe to say that Summer is over. Fine. Whatever. I’m always the last to admit it– the final one desperately holding on to the last remnants of summer. But with snow on September 22nd, even I will freely…

About Me
Hey, I'm Alyssa!
When a mysterious illness sidelined my original plans in life, I packed up and moved home to Kenora, Ontario, Canada. With little money, the inability to work, and a whole lot to figure out, I moved into my family’s cabin on Lake of the Woods.
