movita beaucoup

I’m movita beaucoup. Some people call me Rachael. I hope you’ll like kickin’ it here with me.

I am a full-time part-time ballet teacher living in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I grew up in this province. I love it – most people here do. I’ve lived here for most of my life, except for some time spent in Toronto. I have an English degree, and I graduated from the Teacher Training Program at Canada’s National Ballet School many years back. I graduated from baking school in June 2013.

This blog is only sort of about food. It’s also about pictures, dancing, and other nerdy stuff. The recipes on this blog are usually a post-script to a long story I’ve decided to lay on you. We’re talkin’ a whole lotta movita with a bit of butter and sugar thrown in. (I just high-fived myself.) Also, I think you’ll find I’ve got some pretty funny readers. Scroll through the comments. You won’t regret it.

We’re into homestyle cookin’ in these here parts – the tried and true and nuthin’ fancy. Un-apologetically butter laden and loaded with sugar. You might not like eating the way we do, but I hope you’ll enjoy your stay here nonetheless.

I also host some wicked awesome competitions:

These little battles are WAY FUN. I hope you might consider sending in an entry – and letting complete strangers judge you. You could win a not-very-fancy prize!

  1. Hello Movita and 2.0
    I just thought I would let you know that my blog has moved and is now bighungrygnomes.co.uk. Unfortunately, if you want to remain subscribed to my blog, you will have re-subscribe to this new address. I realise this is a little bit of a nuisance but I would really appreciate your continuing support and interest in my blog
    Thanks

    • Emily! How did I miss this? Let’s blame butter. No, wait! We can’t blame butter. Let’s blame school. It’s making me dumber. Thanks so much for the nomination! I’m flattered and will do my best to continue doing ridiculous things for your reading pleasure…

  3. Hey Movita, thanks for stopping by my blog. I’m so happy to meet you – not only do your recipes look amazing but I love your hilarious, snarky voice. I have a feeling we’re going to really get along. And I’ll never tell you that you need to take better photos 😉

  4. Brilliant, beautiful and a tasty looking blog you have here! I hear your part of the world is truly beautiful and I’ve met some incredibly skilled baking folk from your lovely country. I unadshamably use butter, sugar and all manner of delicious things to convey my great love of food to other folk too. Happy Cooking!

  5. Wow, another dance teacher/baker like myself. 🙂 I’ve enjoyed stalking around your blog today and I wish I had found it sooner! Black swan cupcakes are awesome, BTW. Actually, pretty much everything on here is awesome.
