Coconut Thai Chicken Noodle Soup

Whether you want to admit it or not, that time of year is finally here. You can call it hibernating, hygge or hiding, but the season of getting cozy and comfy is upon us.  And who am I kidding, I LOVE it. To help me get ready for the season of comfort, my friends at…

Ginger Molasses Cookies

Tis the season friends! Holiday lights are up, Christmas décor is out and my waistline is expanding daily with an increased intake of sugar and cheese.  But who can complain right? Today I’m sharing one of my favourite cookie recipes with you guys.  I actually fell in love with this cookie at Starbucks and the…

Spicy Chili Garlic Tofu

Another busy week means another quick and easy recipe.  This one has actually been on my “to try” list for a really long time so I’m really glad that I finally got around to making it.  This will be in a regular rotation FOR SURE.  I often struggle with vegetarian recipes since I often miss…

Chef’s Plate vs Hello Fresh

Life gets busy, I get it.  One of my favourite things to do when I need to just slow down and focus on something aside from work or life is cooking.  I am by no means a master chef and frankly I learn something new every day about how to prepare and cook the foods…

The Brunch Buzz – Pray Tell

Oh Brunch.  My most favorite thing about the weekend.  Next to sleeping in of course.  Today’s brunch adventure found me and a friend on College Street for a long overdue catch up which usually means a lot of bitching and dishing about boys.  And this meeting was no exception. Pray Tell has been on my…

Exploring Elora

Oh, how I love mini city adventures.  If you’re like me and subscribe to a million different newsletters, city guides and blogs, you will have undoubtedly come across articles appropriately titled “10 most beautiful secluded spots just outside Toronto” or “This Ontario town is perfect to escape to”.  So being the girl who sometimes suffers…

Nashville

One thing is for sure.  After this trip, I believe in Nashville!  About 2 months ago, a friend and I spontaneously decided to book a trip to Nashville for our joint birthdays.  Why Nashville you ask?  Well, we both LOVE the show, so the prospect of meeting a Deacon like cowboy was enough to get…

The Bean Blog – Simit & Chai Co

Have you ever been scrolling through your Instagram feed, seen a picture of food and had the reaction “I must have this!”?  So, this happened to me with Simit & Chai Company.  I kept seeing these gorgeous and delicious looking sandwiches on what looked like wider and thinner bagels.  I love me a bagel so…

The Brunch Buzz – Lena

So I’ve realized that I’m making the rounds of some of the most instagramable spots in the city but my no means on purpose.  I feel a ‘best of’ list coming on.  Today’s adventure has me at Lena Restaurant for brunch with some of my fave gals.  It’s a grey and rainy Sunday so I…

Oretta

I remember a while ago, I was finding myself at really small, dimly lit, dark places for dinner which was awful for taking pictures but the food was on point.   Now there seems to be a resurgence of more open, brightly lit and larger spaces that are making their rounds on all the “must try”…

The Bean Blog – Quantum Coffee

Well this might be a first.  I guess I can call this live blogging since I’m currently sitting in Quantum Coffee as we speak.  It’s the Friday of Easter long weekend and I had some work (and blogging) to catch up on so I decided to head out and hit one of the many coffee…

Alo

It was a cold, rainy (maybe romantic?) and wet Thursday when I found myself in the cozy, candlelit bar of Alo.  A few good friends and I had just finished a gluttonous dinner of authentic Chinese food and we were looking for a place to indulge in a few tasty libations.  We started to make…
