Heartfelt Food

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Loblaws and Zehrs. All opinions are 100% mine. I’m a sucker for big family dinners, I always have been. The hustle and bustle of a house filled with fast-moving bodies, laughter, pots clanging as the smell of something wonderful fills the air, gathering together […]

Everything is OK

My life is a living version of Groundhog Day. Each day inevitably starts at 3am, as I stir myself awake and realize all over again that a) there is a 400lb child in my stomach (ok, I have no idea what she weighs…but I’m certain it’s a lot) and b) she doesn’t want to come […]

NEW DESIGN + Turkey Champion

When I cook, I’m usually hoping to accomplish one of two things. The first, something that makes use of what’s already in the fridge, maybe not keeping so well anymore. The second, something filling and satisfying we can make once and eat all week for lunches or snacks to keep us going. My main man […]

It’s The Holidays – Chill Out! [15-Minute Grainy Sausage Apple & Fennel Stuffing]

If you’re celebrating Thanksgiving today, you’re probably feeling that all too familiar cocktail of nerves, excitement and yes, maybe a little exhaustion.  Planning for the holidays is tough, often prolonged work. You mull over menu items, figure out dietary restrictions, shop, prep vegetables, appetizers and side dishes, spend a full weekend cooking and then, just […]

Speedy Meatless Monday [Caramelized Fennel, Roasted Garlic and Tomato Soup with Lemon]

Kalikori Olive Oil; A Partnership [Olive Oil, Toasted Fennel & Orange Loaf]

I’ve been so looking forward to sharing this post! You know how excited I get when I try something new – I want to yell it from the rooftops so you can all be as tempted and seduced by new products, flavours and brands as I am. Or because I just like to yack and […]

Simple Simplicity [Linguine with Fennel and Clams]

Isn’t it such a pain when you decide to make a recipe that coins itself ”simple” and it turns out it has to sit or marinade for 12 hours, or calls for a bunch of random ingredients or kitchen equipment you might never use again?  Simple should be -gasp – SIMPLE.  There is a time and place for […]

Vegetable Bathing

(Let me first start by telling you I had an entry all typed up and ready… and tumblr deleted it. Sigh. Darn you, cruel world!)  Have you ever been digging through your crisper for that beautiful bunch of beets you bought last week only to find that time has been less than kind to them? It’s fairly low on […]

A Book and Some Salad

I’ve just finished reading [er..plowing through with reckless abandon] A Homemade Lifeby Molly Wizenberg, who is also the creator of the ever brilliant Orangette. What a great book. If you blog about food [or even if you don’t] – I highly recommend you read it. It was romantic. And not in the sense you’re thinking…romantic in […]
