Catching Up

Oof it's been a WHILE! I moved to Boston, started journalism school, and I have two jobs, so I've been Very Busy. 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 … Continue reading Catching Up

What’s on the Menu This Week?

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. I plan for every dinner to be a double batch, so that lunch is already … Continue reading What’s on the Menu This Week?

Chuck Hughes and Tomato Pie, a 10/10 Afternoon

Friday was a little bit surreal. I left work early, went home and made a quick omelette, and then ran to the metro. I took the Orange Line from Sherbrooke all the way up to Montmorency, and then hopped onto the bus that Google Maps had told me to hop onto. I spoke with the bus … Continue reading Chuck Hughes and Tomato Pie, a 10/10 Afternoon

Guest Post: The Joy of (not) Cooking and Baking Instead

My dear friend Julianna is the best baker I know, and she’s as generous as she is talented. Every baked good she makes gets devoured in minutes, equally because it’s so delicious and because of how many friends she’s always sharing with. Pumpkin brownies, chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal cookies, pies, cakes, brownies, banana chocolate chip … Continue reading Guest Post: The Joy of (not) Cooking and Baking Instead

October’s Most Notable Eats

What a month! I'll get right into it. I told you I was busy! Oct 5: Mongolian Hot Pot for a friend's birthday. I'd been meaning to try this place for years, and it did not disappoint. As soon as I entered, the smell of the steam from dozens of tableside broth pots smacked me right in the … Continue reading October’s Most Notable Eats

Julia Child

All hail Julia Child. I'm not a spiritual person, but Julia is pretty much my deity, my light, and my lord and saviour. I've watched many episodes of her TV shows and pored through her books. She's the grandmother of food TV who paved the way for five decades of programs that have showed the world that … Continue reading Julia Child

Meal Planning Tips from a Reformed Lunch Sinner (with gifs)

Two years ago, I was 20, nearing the end of my Undergraduate degree. I was living with my wonderful friend Carla right off of Duluth, and my group of friends had recently discovered that we can potluck at a pretty outstanding level. We were taking advantage of this communal way of eating as often as … Continue reading Meal Planning Tips from a Reformed Lunch Sinner (with gifs)

Gefilte Fish a la Veracruzana, or, My Identity in One Dish

I've always had trouble with forms that ask me to mark my race or ethnicity in one box, and I know I'm far from the only one who feels this way. Do I check Latina? Both my parents and all my grandparents were born and raised in Mexico, and I grew up speaking Spanish at … Continue reading Gefilte Fish a la Veracruzana, or, My Identity in One Dish

Barcelona Bar Espresso: An Interview

Barcelona Bar Espresso opened in late July, and if you live in the Plateau, you’ve definitely noticed it. It’s bright red on the outside, warm and inviting on the inside, and, most excitingly for me, it’s Barcelona-themed. Hoo boy, do I ever LOVE Barcelona. I’m in the middle of a super-long, very cheesy post about … Continue reading Barcelona Bar Espresso: An Interview

ErickaBrunch

I have many strong feelings about brunch. I usually think that brunch should be exclusively a diner/greasy spoon affair, but the number-one brunch experience that exists on this very earth is made by Ericka Grawey, a close friend of mine. Her brunches are for friends only (for now- keep an eye out, I can see Ericka Brunches- or Ericka Events- … Continue reading ErickaBrunch
