Broccoli Recipe

So apparently you guys really like broccoli.  Who knew?  Not one of my favourite vegetables but for some reason when I think of eating healthy it’s the first one that comes to mind.  I think the only time I like it is when it’s smothered in cheese and baked into a pastry dish or casserole. …

Building My Balcony Oasis

My balcony is tiny.  I mean, it’s miniscule.  If I were to lie down, I’m pretty sure I would fit perfectly within it.  Needless to say, I’m not throwing any day jams out there but I still wanted to have a space that was decent enough to hang out on, have my morning coffee, read…

My Favourite Toronto Patios

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.  The sun is out, my freckles are appearing again, clothes are lighter and the general mood in the air is just happier.  Summer, you are the best.  Summer also means getting out and enjoying the weather as much as possible because sadly, we know what is waiting…

Gretzky’s Restaurant Celebrates 25 Years

Since I moved downtown I’ve always lived on the same block.  I collected my list of “go to” spots in the area for my coffee or lunch which seemed to constantly change, but one landmark always remained.  Wayne Gretzky’s Restaurant at the corner of Blue Jays Way and Wellington has been around for what seems like…

Where To Eat Before a Game/Show/Concert

Since I started this blog, one of the most popular questions I get is where to eat before a concert, a Jays/Raptors/Leafs game or a show.  Over the last few years, the dining options in the “Entertainment District” of the city have really grown.  Most recently, Union Station has upgraded its food scene to accommodate…

Infinity Mirrors: Yayoi Kusama

The most talked about event in Toronto for the last few weeks has been Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrors exhibit at the AGO. As the only Canadian stop on the exhibition tour, you have undoubtedly seen many perplexing and mesmerizing selfies of her various “rooms” flood your social media feeds. When I heard that the exhibit…

Cook It Meal Kits

You guys know that I’ve started cooking a lot more at home.  It’s an easy way to stay healthy, save money and appreciate the joy of cooking.  Living in the city gives you so many options for take-out and dining but sometimes you just want a nice home cooked meal. In the last few years…
