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…

Dinner at Do Not Disturb (CLOSED)

When someone tells me that I will want to “order everything on the menu”, I can’t help but get a little excited about what’s in store for dinner. Do Not Disturb is appropriately (and hilariously) located inside The Beverley Hotel at Queen and John.  I’ve been to this boutique hotel for drinks on their adorable…

How To Create An Epic Superbowl Spread with Sabra Dips

Superbowl time means one thing for me.  Indulging in saucy, spicy, cheesy, finger licking delectable food.  And the half time show of course.  I have seen some epic spreads in my time for the big game, so I figured this year would the perfect opportunity to put my own take on a crowd-pleasing menu. Lately…

Mushroom Risotto Recipe

Risotto might actually be one of my favourite foods.  Mushroom risotto to be specific.  There’s just something about the creamy, peppery, earthy flavours that makes it the perfect comfort food.  It’s no coincidence that you will find risotto in my regular dinner rotation this season especially with these sub-zero temperatures. I first tried this recipe…

Brunch at La Societe

Recently, I’ve been asked a lot about what new restaurants I’ve tried and it made me realize that I haven’t blogged about an actual restaurant or meal in a really long time. Since it’s a new year I thought it might be good way to get back into the swing of things by posting an…

Bring on 2018

Happy New Year my lovely readers! I meant to publish this post much earlier in the week but since we’ve been living in Elsa’s Frozen universe, I have been dealing with a nasty sinus cold which had me down for a few days and unable to look at screens for very long.  Still not 100%,…

What To Do During Winter in Toronto

If you haven’t figured it out by my posts, photos and Instagram stories, I’m a sucker for those cozy, comfy, lazy nights in.  But there is a part of me that feels I should take advantage of the cold, discover some of its beauty and maybe even have a little fun! I mean it is…
