HOLY SHIT. I’M QUARANTINING IN A CABIN IN THE MIDDLE OR RURAL QUEBEC. A week ago I had no idea that I’d leave my apartment in LA and drive 42 hours back to Canada, but here we are. I’ve been trying to write this blog FOREVER. Here was the initial intro: “It’s pouring rain and… Continue reading Eating My Way Through Thailand: The Gulf Islands
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! I’ve been back… Continue reading Eating My Way Through Thailand: Chiang Mai
Hello! Brace yourselves. I’m not posting a recipe. But by the end of this blog I think I will have convinced you to go to New Orleans. I recently turned 30 (shhh…don’t tell Hollywood) and had the pleasure of spending 5 nights in NOLA. I was there for a comedy festival, but if I’m being… Continue reading Eating and Drinking in New Orleans
JULIA YOU CAN’T CALL IT PULLED PORK IF YOU’RE NOT USING PORK. WHY DON’T YOU JUST CALL IT JACKFRUIT AND BBQ SAUCE ON A BUN?! A) Because that sounds weird. B) Because not everyone knows what jackfruit is and it’s important to know you can transform it into something pulled pork-esque. C) I WILL DO… Continue reading Jackfruit Pulled Pork Party
I’M HOME FROM TOUR! Instead of being in some cute coffee shop in Vancouver or Victoria, I’m at my local neighbourhood haunt in Toronto. Jimmy’s Coffee on Ossington. There’s something about Ossington that calms me and says “I’m home”. Probably because I’ve lived near it most of my Toronto life and it’s home of my… Continue reading Victory in Victoria
Greetings! Like I predicted last week, I come bearing news from an adorable coffee shop in Victoria, BC. It’s called the Corner Stone Cafe and it’s located in Fernwood Village. This is the first time since I started my West Coast Comedy tour April 8, that I’ll have a few days to CHILL. Don’t get… Continue reading Julia Eats Vancouver
Hello! I’m currently in Vancouver writing from an adorable little cafe in Gastown. It’s a beaauuuutiful day and as soon as I’ve done some writing and felt productive I might hit up a patio, solo! I’m an independent woman. My week is Calgary was spectacular. As always, I’m blown away by the kindness of people… Continue reading Culinary Calgary
Hello faithful readers! I’m embarrassed to say that I haven’t blogged in TWO WEEKS. Since I started this blog almost 2 years ago I’ve NEVER missed a post. Until now. I’ll have you know that I’ve been very busy. I got married 2 weeks ago! Under the radar like a sneaky bitch. My husband and… Continue reading Edmonton Eats
Every once and a while it’s fun to ditch what you’re familiar with and try something completely new. About a year ago my friends and I got together and had a Peruvian themed dinner party. We all made a dish and got to taste some food and flavours that we didn’t get a chance to… Continue reading Banh Mi, Baby!
I did it! I made bread! Three times I made bread! I didn’t use a fancy mixer or bread machine. Just my hands and a few simple ingredients. I always assumed making bread would be the most difficult thing on the planet. Obviously certain recipes are more difficult than others. I found one that had… Continue reading Go to Bread!
