I started writing this blog a few days ago and opened with “I think the jet lag is finally wearing off” HA! What a tease. 2 nights ago I went to bed at 6PM and slept 14 hours and last night I went to bed and here we are now, at 5am!

HELLO SWEET KITTENS! I haven’t done a blog post in a while because I was busy moving my entire life from Toronto to Los Angeles!

Greetings friends! How do I deal with the cold November rain? I eat warm, delicious, comfort food until all my chills and fears are but a distant memory.

Sometimes I don’t even feel like going outside to get groceries but I do it anyway because… Continue reading Julia’s Two Bean Beef Chili
HAPPY 2016 EVERYONE! While 2015 was a very good year for me personally and professionally, I’m eager to take on the challenges I will face in 2016. I think the best way to prep for success is to start with with what we’re eating. It sounds cliche but I vow to eat more veggies, less… Continue reading New Year, New Food!
I built a fort this week. I’m a grown woman, dating a grown man and we built a goddamn fort over our TV using bed sheets and duct tape. Let me preface by saying it has been a looooooonnnng week. Lots of big, stressful shows and by the time Sunday rolled around we just wanted… Continue reading Chimichurri Surf n’ Turf
I started my new food week off right by making a beef stew. When I think beef stew I think root vegetables and red wine. I opted for a lighter version using kale, white beans and white wine. White wine and beef? Am I crazy? Crazy smart, that is! It still gives it a beautiful… Continue reading Beef, Kale and White Bean Stew
Hello! I don’t mean to brag but I’ve really out done myself this week. I made food that I’ve never made before and it turned out better than I could have imagined.
