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’llContinue reading “Empty-Fridge Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies”

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 wasContinue 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. MealContinue reading “Sweet Potato, Squash & Ginger Soup with Pickled Onion, Cilantro, and Lime”

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 chipContinue reading “Guest Post: The Joy of (not) Cooking and Baking Instead”

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 aboutContinue reading “Barcelona Bar Espresso: An Interview”

Throwback: Reflections in the Refrigerator Light (2013)

Originally published on Leacocks.com, a McGill University Arts publication, in January of 2013. At the time, I was living with four of my best friends in a small apartment with one kitchen and one tiny bathroom. It was wonderful. —– It’s 2:30am and I’m eating a stacked sandwich. I’ve been told time and time againContinue reading “Throwback: Reflections in the Refrigerator Light (2013)”
