Last week, we had some friends over for dinner, and until a few hours before they arrived, I hadn’t decided what to make. We were very low on groceries save for a few stray veggies and I didn’t want to schlep to the grocery store, or spend extra money buying ingredients at the corner store down the street. Then I remembered that my friend Zoë … Continue reading Crisp and Creamy Veggie Galette
Like I did for my Montreal List, I’ll continually add to this list of my favourite places in Boston whenever I find something great. I’ll start with a bunch of restaurants where you can eat for cheap, and then move on to the pricier options that are well worth it for a special occasion.

Things are generally great here so far- I really miss my friends and my family, but I’ve been very much in touch with everyone and I’m happy to see so many people I love flourishing in their new lives. Leaving Montreal was painful. … Continue reading Catching Up
As I’ve previously mentioned, at length and with feeling, I love meal planning. It’s saved me more money than I can even fathom, and it’s how I can control how healthy (or unhealthy) I’ll be eating from one week to another.
