We don’t get to the city often (Halifax) and its about the only place we know that has decent donairs. So after a bit of searching we found this recipe online. Trying it out this morning. Super simple to make.
I like having ingredient out where I can see them, maybe its due to the years working in the bakery where everything was on open shelves, easy to get and see. Whether its for easy access, seeing when we’re getting low on some ingredient or inspiration on the next recipe.. which reminds me, I have a jar of dried apricots looking to become a tasty treat. 🙂

I totally gutted the kitchen and replaced it with the set shown below. This was a fairly straight forward job. The hardwood flooring went in later. The cabients are made from Newfoundland Birch, with a natural finish. The cabinet system was part of a kitchen manufacturer’s store display and I purchased it at a 60% discount price. Luckily all the parts fit with two base cabinets left over.
With a need to update the look of the menu presentation of a local bakery I was presented with the task of making custom menu boards to blend in with the interior of the customer service area. The following pictures are a few snapshots of the work.
Made from 3/4″ pine I “eyeballed” this project from a picture in a magazine. A fairly straightforward project in design. The gingerbread in the center had to be cut with a jigsaw. The piece was obviously too large for a scroll saw. The front section is one solid piece. The end strips were carefully spread apart to fit in the spindles.
