Question Twenty & Twenty One

Yesterday got more busy than I had expected and somehow I forgot to post this question, so I'm posting it along with today's question and an apology...I'm so sorry that I missed this one yesterday!!

Day 20 - a hobby of yours and how it changed since your loss.

My hobby...I guess it's writing. I had actually not done much writing, or some time, before we lost Alexandra. Life gets hectic and in the way and it's easy to brush aside those little things that you do just for you. So, since I lost Alexandra, taking those few minutes for myself has been renewed. I write so much more than I had in years. Alexandra inspires me to do more good, with my words and with my life.
I do have another hobby actually...If I was to ask Steve right now, "What's my hobby?" he would answer, "Shopping" lol And he's right, I do love to shop. And I still do shop, probably just as much as I always have, when I have the time and the money (and I especially like to shop online). My shopping habits actually HAVE changed since my loss. Besides the obvious things for Alexandra and her grave, I have also been setting aside money to purchase things that I can sell to raise money for pregnancy and infant loss. And my personal shopping has changed as well. I have added buying a lot of little things for Alexandra's grave and memorial items for her.
And today's question:
Day 21 - a recipe
Well, I chose a Canadian dessert recipe, for a few reasons. The first (and most obvious) reason, is that I'm Canadian! :-) The second reason is that I used to make this all the time and people seem to love it. Now, I have a pretty crazy sweet tooth, which is probably why I enjoyed this...But you can't eat too much at a time, or you will get a tummy ache!
Sucre a la creme

1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup heavy cream


1.In a large microwave-safe bowl, stir together the white sugar, brown sugar and cream. Cook at full power for 10 minutes, stirring twice. Let stand for 5 minutes.
2.Use an electric mixer on low speed to beat the mixture for 4 minutes. Pour into a buttered 8 inch square glass baking dish. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm. Cut into squares when set.
