Ricotta Nosh aka Grammy’s madly in, head-over-heels, love!

In the past, when I visited Meg and Theo I spent half of my time shopping for food that I can’t find in New Brunswick and the other half cooking it. Fast forward to Coen. If I can’t find it at the neighbourhood grocery store, chances are I won’t be cooking it. I have one week to hold, hug, rock, kiss, sing to, read to and love my beautiful grandson. Instead of spending hours in the kitchen, we’re spending hours marveling at the wonder of our beautiful baby boy.
