Wild Serendipity Foods website is down!

If you've been trying to access my website, and/or email me, the Wild Serendipity Foods website is currently down. (it's www.wildserendipity.com) The server, which is located in New York, was apparently being migrated over the weekend (I'm not sure what that means exactly.......migrating south, to warmer weather, perhaps?;) In the process, my website was one of the ones that did not migrate properly. It will hopefully be up by the 30th or 31st.

My apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused, especially if you have given out gift certificates for Christmas, & the recipients are trying to access the website & wondering what the ?

Happy Holidays!!!!

Well, as expected, I just can't seem to keep updating my blog on a regular basis!!

Here are a few highlights of the past several months:

This summer at the Farmer's Market was bustling as ever - the demand for the fresh-baked scones continues to grow...........I will be installing yet another oven in the New Year to attempt to keep up with the resumed demand in the Spring!

My business will be profiled in an upcoming Saskatchewan science textbook (Gr. 7 &8) - I will be immortalized :) I'm sure my boys will get a kick out of seeing their mother in a school book!

My classes filled up faster than ever this Fall - I feel bad that I can't add many more classes for the time being, so my apologies if you've been trying to get into some of them, but can't. My Tuesdays in the New Year will now be dedicated to rehearsals for the Saskatoon Fiddle Orchestra........my newest passionate pursuit has become the violin. I played classical guitar for a little over a decade growing up, but left it behind in my early 20's. My son started taking violin about a year ago, & then this past Fall, my own passion for playing music was rediscovered. It has become a bit of an obsession...............there are weeks when more scones should have been made, but I simply could not put the violin down (sorry, if you were left sconeless because of my indulgement). My son & I are both taking lessons with Philip Kashap - & Philip & I are co-hosting a couple of Indian cooking classes in the New Year. Sorry - they're already full - I'll see if I can coax him into scheduling another one!

I'm doing more & more team-building / corporate social events for the cooking classes - most recently, I had the opportunity to host classes for:

Red Bull
Cravings Maternity & Baby Boutique
the legal group at

The personal experience of preparing food & then sharing a meal together is such a wonderful way to bond with people, whether it be friends, family or co-workers - I truly enjoy hosting these events :)

Lastly - Best Wishes for the Holidays, & for a Healthy & Happy New Year!!!!
