I don’t think there’s anyone I know that doesn’t love candles. I love the warmth and coziness that candles bring into any home but have a hard time with overpowering or perfume-based scents. Along with air-fresheners, perfume-based candles typically give me a huge headache, so I have avoided them for years. This all-natural Holiday Potpourri will have your home smelling like heaven. I have been making this Potpourri during the Holidays for years. My house has never smelled more beautiful than it does when I combine cranberries, star anise, cinnamon, lemons, and rosemary, to a simmering pot of water. These beautiful ingredients permeate all throughout the house, and make every guest feel amazing. I love Christmas so the Holiday season begins on November first for us every single year. The moment Halloween is over, I simmer a beautiful pot of Potpourri immediately and get into the spirit. There is no exact recipe for this so please measure everything with your heart.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
