Ally Gaffan

Ally Gaffan Through trial and error I've found the two loves of my life - Mr. S. and food. If I'm not out exploring the world with him then you'll usually find me whipping up various dishes, desserts and small fires in the Grid.

Java and Nut Juice…it’s a winner. Califia Farm’s Cold Brew Coffee with Almond Milk

Cup of Joe

Ugh! I'm stuck at home today. Woke up feeling under the weather and a bit nauseated.  Mr. S can attest to the fact that I'm a horrible patient. I start feeling quite grumpy when I'm regulated to the bed. Don't get me wrong, I love sleeping in but ...
