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

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.

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

It's honestly better than what you can get at a restaurant for $20 and making it yourself will cost a fraction of the … Continue reading Penne alla Vodka Because You Deserve It

Wildly Delicious Camping Food

There are so many levels of camping food. You can go bare-bones adventurer with cans of beans, Alphaghetti (which I happen to love), hot dogs, marshmallows, and instant coffee. You also can go full-on glamping with a gas stove, steaks, salads, and lots of dishes to do. My favourite way to eat in the wild … Continue reading Wildly Delicious Camping Food

This Week’s Food Roundup: Hand-Pulled Noodles, Mujaddara, Chicken Tikka, Snickerdoodles, y Mucho Mas!

Summer in Montreal is the Best Thing Ever (ask anyone, they'll tell you). Barbecues, days in the park, going dancing, camping, hiking, swimming, 5 á 7-ing - it's undoubtedly the most fun time of the year. We hibernate all (8 months of) winter, watching a lot of movies and TV, going out less, and shivering under … Continue reading This Week’s Food Roundup: Hand-Pulled Noodles, Mujaddara, Chicken Tikka, Snickerdoodles, y Mucho Mas!
