Empty-Fridge Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love lazy days. They’re not actually particularly easy to come by these days, as the realization that I’m leaving Montreal has started to set in, and along with it, shpilkes (look it up- it’s my favourite Yiddish word) have started presenting themselves, pushing me to want to constantly be doing things that I know I’ll miss when I leave. I like the shpilkes, most of … Continue reading Empty-Fridge Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

London 2017 + a little update

Hello again, world! It’s been approximately 100 years since my last post. March 2017 (and the first half of April) was an absolute whirlwind- six weeks that I won’t ever forget. I went to London for 4 days with Aaron to visit Nate and Grace, and then spent two consecutive weekends in Toronto, the first with my whole family and the second just with my Pa. … Continue reading London 2017 + a little update

Dahlia’s Montreal Restaurants List

Alternate titles: My Magnum Opus, How to Ingest Montreal’s Best For six years, I’ve kept this list tucked away on my phone, expanding it all the time and consulting it regularly when anyone asked me for a restaurant recommendation.

Dahlia on Daybreak: Coziness, Tomato Sauce, Hot Pot, and a Lightning Round

Hi friends! Here’s my first CBC Daybreak segment of 2017, aired on January 9th. It’s basically just host Mike Finnerty and I chatting about ways to stay cozy and comfortable in the winter- making some tomato sauce, eating at Mongolian Hot Pot restaurants, and keeping a full belly. I was a little sick when I was on the show this time around, and you can hear … Continue reading Dahlia on Daybreak: Coziness, Tomato Sauce, Hot Pot, and a Lightning Round

Sweet Potato, Squash & Ginger Soup with Pickled Onion, Cilantro, and Lime

It’s been an extremely busy couple of weeks. I’ve been working on some big life Next Steps, working my two jobs, seeing and skyping friends as often as possible, and trying to walk through the snow, slush, and ice without wiping out (I’m 3 falls in, so far)- it’s been more than a little exhausting. Meal planning is extra tough when things get so busy, but … Continue reading Sweet Potato, Squash & Ginger Soup with Pickled Onion, Cilantro, and Lime

Dahlia on Daybreak: The Holidays, Ceviche, Choripan, Charcuterie, and a Lightning Round

Hello readers/friends/listeners! As I explained last week, I recently received the clips from my last three segments on CBC Montreal Daybreak. The column I’ve got for you today was holiday-themed, so it’s coming to you a little late, but any time of year is a good time to learn about tangy and delicious dinner ideas like ceviche and choripan. I also explain what goes into making an impressive and … Continue reading Dahlia on Daybreak: The Holidays, Ceviche, Choripan, Charcuterie, and a Lightning Round
