Canada's Baking and Sweets Show

This past weekend was Canada's Baking and Sweets Show in Toronto. It first came to my attention with the introduction of the "Wonut" and as soon as I knew it was happening, I had to go! 

A room filled with cake? Try and stop me.

The other night, I was making my Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp and noticed I still had a ton of rice wrappers in the cupboard. I quickly checked my stock and decided to make some Thai style Fresh Egg Rolls to go with out meal!

Lemon Sockeye Salmon... SURPRISE!

Sockeye Salmon Recipe

The other day I had a bit of what I like to call "The Dumb". With the changing weather, I've been finding it difficult to keep my eyes open, let alone be effective at work or in my day to day tasks. Throw in some post bridal-party exhaustion and I was in pretty rough shape.

I decided that what I needed to fix "The Dumb" was to have some brain food! I went to the store and picked up some Sockeye Salmon to cook up for dinner.

Referendum Day

With everything going on in Toronto right now with “Ford Nation”, the Crack to the Cancer, and the ongoing Mayoral Election, Torontonians are ignoring a lot of other things going on in the world right now.

I never wanted this to be a political blog (even though my degree is in poli sci), but today I have a confession to make

This is not my first blog. This is.

Harissa, Mint, Corn and Shrimp - A Moroccan Feast

Harissa Corn with Mint Recipe

Lately I've been hankering for some well spiced foods. I'm a fan of Thai and Indian, but I wanted to branch out a bit and try something new.

Enter Moroccan food!

Brunch at Bonjour Brioche

Bonjour Brioche Toronto Brunch

Brunch is the best meal of the day. Even on days you don’t eat brunch. Even on days you manage to squeeze breakfast and lunch around brunch, because you eat like a hobbit. 

Brunch is the best, and I take it very seriously.

Tonight I was craving some Italian flavour for dinner, and decided that I would put together a brushetta platter for us to nibble on while we made dinner.

Sushi Picnic


With summer drawing to a very quick close, some friends and I decided to get together for an after work picnic by the lake! All planned, we were ready to meet right up until the last minute when complications struck out of the blue and we had to reschedule.

I was a little bummed, but I love these ladies so I understood... Unfortunately this meant I had picnic brain and didn't feel much like cooking. And I'd put on such a pretty summer dress

The alternative? I would cozy up in my apartment and have my own picnic! Do some pinning, maybe watch a movie... certainly not do any real cooking!
