Review of Chez’s Restaurant

College Street is probably one of my favourite streets in the city and the one where I have the most memories.  When I was fresh out of school, I used to party on College ALL the time and then ironically, a few years later, I landed a job right on the main strip.  8 years…

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.

Brunch at 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…

Brunch at Lena Restaurant

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…

Dinner at Piano Piano

Every now and then I go out for dinner and leave just in LOVE with my entire experience.  This was the feeling when I left Piano Piano a few nights ago.  It had been on my list for some time and quite a few people I know had been with raving reviews.  Needless to say,…

Protein Energy Balls Recipe

Can you smell it? Spring is in the air!  It’s hard to believe after what feels like years in a cold vortex, but warmer weather is right around the corner.  Most folks are getting ready for a heavy dose of spring cleaning or getting their finances sorted after RRSP and tax season and if you’re…
