Top 5 Brunch Spots

I can’t decide whether it’s brunch foods or just brunch that I like more.  Lately I’ve been eating breakfast for dinner so it leads me to believe that I love the foods that make up the meal.  I definitely don’t get out to brunch as often as I’d like, although my Instagram probably makes it…

Pre-Game/Show/Concert Dining Options

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…

Medellin, Colombia

In my head I know that Winter only lasts a few months, but after the haze and flurry of Christmas it feels like a lifetime before we get to have sunny warm days again.  If I can get my act together, I usually try and plan a little getaway between January and March so I…

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…

Do Not Disturb

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…

Mushroom Risotto

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…

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%,…

Winter Fun in the City

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…

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…
