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…

Wine & Whisky with Wayne

If you know me, you know I love my wine.  I’ve graduated from the days of chugging 2L bottles of zinfandel to appreciating the sipping, smell and swirl of a really good glass. I was recently invited to a VIP experience at The Wayne Gretzky Winery and Distillery in Niagara-on-the-Lake and I couldn’t turn it…

48 Hours in Paris

Oh Paris.  The city of love, the city of light and perhaps one of my favourite cities in the world.  Even on what was my 4th visit to the famous Parisian city, I was able to experience some memorable firsts and see the sights from a new perspective. During a 10-day excursion to Europe this…

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…

One Pot Lemon Garlic Chicken & Rice

I haven’t done a recipe post in a while and seeing as this is the 2nd time I am making this particular dish, it felt like a good time to share it with all of you.  I guess you can say I live the quintessential downtown life – I work, I socialize and probably spend…

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…

Diner En Blanc 2017

You’ve definitely seen the photos.  Dinner at dusk, long white tables with drinks, food and ornate center pieces, beautiful people dressed in their best, crispiest white attire, twinkling sparklers and dancing under the moonlight. Who wouldn’t want to be one of the lucky ones to be invited to an event like that right?  So, when…

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…

Cafe Cancan

I’m not really sure if summer in Toronto is ever going to make an appearance.  This year I purchased an ACTUAL rain coat because I just couldn’t deal with another day of getting soaked in the rain.  With all this grey and gloominess on the outside, and maybe a little on my insides, I needed…

La Palma

Dundas West might slowly be becoming one of my favourite areas of the city.  It’s unassuming, chilled out, unpretentious and home to some of my favourite cocktail bars. The only thing I would change is their weekend opening hours.  How is a girl supposed to get day drunk if you only open at 6!? I…
