Hello my hungry friends! About a week ago I applied to a contest to be “director of taco relations” for a company. Who wouldn’t want to get paid to talk about, write about and and BE about everything taco related? For my submission video I decided to make a fish taco and I wanted to… Continue reading Fish Tacos with Slaw
Before we get started, I’d like to confess that I have NEVER made a “real” Carbonara. The creaminess of this pasta traditionally comes from egg yolks. From what I’ve researched, there is always bacon or pancetta and parmesan cheese is a MUST. While googling carbonara the question “is spaghetti carbonara good for you?” popped up… Continue reading Avocado Carbonara
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

If bread is the vehicle for the contents of a sandwich, then rice paper… Continue reading Cold Rolls

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!
Mini Dinner Party! Friday my bff from Ottawa, who now lives in TO, came over for dinner. She’s a pescatarian (doesn’t eat meat but enjoys fish on occasion) which is great because I love an excuse to cook fish. I opted for a blackened salmon, broccoli and rice with an avocado, cilantro, lime cream. I… Continue reading Blackened Salmon
Ok, now it’s time to get serious. You know how humans are destroying the earth and ruining our oceans? We’re a fun bunch of jerks, huh? You’re probably wondering what YOU can do to make this better. WELL, eating less meat would help (I know, I’m guilty of eating more meat than I should…) and… Continue reading Sustainable Fish!
