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
Cinco De Mayo was yesterday! Lots of people think it’s Mexico’s independence day but it’s actually a date to commemorate the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Not that I need an excuse to eat Mexican food, but it definitely inspired me to try something I haven’t done… Continue reading Chicken Al Pastor
I hate the word cleanse. It makes me think of yoyo diets that make you lose 10 pounds in a week while being a miserable excuse for a human and then gaining it all back when you finally eat real food. I’ve done cleanses in the past. Cabbage soup diet, juice cleanses, that cayenne pepper… Continue reading The Good Cleanse
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! I’ve been in LA for just under a month now and because of spending so much time focussing on my career, cooking has taken a back seat. The meals I… Continue reading EVERYDAY TACOS
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!
Seriously. I have been craving chicken ALL week. The past few days have been pretty hectic and it seemed like every other minute I was heading to a holiday party and gorging my face on cheese and Swedish meatballs. That being said, I defrosted a whole chicken and I needed to cook it before it… Continue reading I feel like Chicken!
I really went all out with this meal because I was a lazy Susan all week. This was the perfect Sunday night meal. Porchetta with salt baked miso and kale stuffed potatoes and arugula salad. Earlier this week I curled up with the newest edition of Food & Drink magazine (free at the LCBO) and… Continue reading Porchetta and Miso Baked Potatoes
Hello sweet treasures! I made so many delicious meals this week it’s hard to choose a winner. Just like it must have been hard to choose the winners at the Canadian Comedy Awards this past Sunday. I had the honour of being nominated for “Best Female Stand-up”. I didn’t win, BUT I had a blast… Continue reading Slow Cooker Chicken: Two Ways
ATTENTION. YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS SALAD. It will knock your socks off. I was inspired by an article I read about the founder of “Fresh” vegetarian restaurants. I made my own version of the ‘Phytosalad’ and ‘3-6-9′ dressing. Here is the link! http://www.foodnetwork.ca/healthy-eating/blog/ruth-tals-5-fresh-tips-for-clean-eating-plus-recipes/34666/?hootPostID=764785953a95197c41f9f94962966132 For the salad I used cooked soba noodles, shredded nappa cabbage, chopped sundried tomatoes,… Continue reading Fresh Salad
I went to the farmers’ market the other day and bought the biggest damn bunch of kale I had ever seen. Despite my efforts to shove it in my morning smoothies, I was barely making a dent in this puppy. When you have stuff in your fridge that you need to use up, may I… Continue reading Kale Casserole
