My name is Corrie. I have a wonderful husband, Sean, and a beautiful daughter, Ruby. I am also lucky to be surrounded by my close family and friends. I have two crazy, loveable cats named JoeBoo and Guinness. They run our household.  We currently live in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

I have been a small animal veterinarian since I graduated from the University of Minnesota, College of Veterinary Medicine, in 2005.  Since coming back from maternity leave, I’ve cut back to part time work, but I’m still passionate about my career. My husband likes to tell people that I “cut out balls” for a living.  My professional interests include: Dermatology, Pain Management and Endocrine Disease.

I am a football fanatic. So is my husband. We do not cheer for the same team and that can make our lives interesting sometimes. I get very grumpy when my team loses.

I love to travel, run, watch football on Sundays, drink beer and eat good food.

And last but not least, I love to bake! This is a fairly recent change and most people I know would be absolutely shocked to hear this. I try to bake something new once or twice a week.  I started this blog as a way to keep track of my recipes and to be inspired to create delicious treats in the kitchen. This is also an excellent way to share my favourite recipes.

Since I am a vet and am very passionate about animal health and welfare, I will also share little tidbits of information with you every now and then. I may get on my soap box from time to time, so please bear with me!
