Monday Mango Curry Chicken with Sautéed Peppers, Basmati Rice & Naan

Mondays are already long enough and to find the energy to cook (and possibly impress) is hard! When I start to get excited for the weekend, I shoot for the more involved recipes, but I needed something simple and delicious to encourage me through the week. I threw a few things together along the theme … Continue reading Monday Mango Curry Chicken with Sautéed Peppers, Basmati Rice & Naan

Asian-Fusion

Tonight, I had a craving for some type of Asian food and this is what I decided on: Teriyaki and Sesame Horseradish Glazed Chicken Thighs Over Rice Noodles with Sweet Potato and Steamed Broccoli: Ingredients: 6 boneless-skinless chicken thighs, 1 whole sweet potato (washed and peeled), 3 tbsp sesame seeds, 1 cup chicken broth, 1 … Continue reading Asian-Fusion

Lunch Ideas

Lunches are always a tough thing to pack. Being in dental, I never know when my patients are going to run on time, or whether I'll have two seconds to scarf down a spoonful of sustenance. Here are three great options for healthy, filling, tasty mid-day fillers. Kale Power Salad: Kale and spinach blend, salami, Roma … Continue reading Lunch Ideas

Fall Finds

Fall has begun, the air is cooling down, and my heart longs for those hearty meals to comfort me along with my collection of scarves. Mustard and Herbs to Provence chicken breasts with homemade cauliflower and pepper 'tater tots' and brown rice with buttery Chardonnay Rainbow gnocchi with garden-grown pesto and an Italian spinach salad … Continue reading Fall Finds

T.O.

This past weekend, I visited my best friend in Toronto. We went to TURF music festival, ate all the food, drank all the wine and partied probably too much! Lunch: Completo's Chilean sandwiches. We all had the Churrassco on gluten free buns (chorizo sausage, mashed avocado, lettuce, tomato, house hot sauce and roasted red pepper sauce): https://www.zomato.com/toronto/completo-leslieville/menu Dinner: … Continue reading T.O.

Hola, Mexico!

We recently got back from Mayan Riviera, Mexico in May and it was incredible! We stayed at the Valentin Imperial Maya and truly indulged in food, wine, margaritas, the sun, the sand, and the beautiful people. Every morning, we enjoyed breakfast on the beach, mimosas and the best assortment of fresh fruits, crepes, and omelettes. Every lunch, … Continue reading Hola, Mexico!

Art: Brgr

Well, this was a fun night out: burgers, poutine and beer at Art: Brgr in the Plateau followed by dirty gin martinis at Bily Kun. This city never ceases to amaze me. One moment, you're eating double your weight in meat and gravy, then you're classily sipping on fine drinks with ostriches staring at you … Continue reading Art: Brgr

Home Sweet Home

Since moving to Montreal, I haven't got to come home too often. Mainly because it's 3 hours each way and without a car, I can't spontaneously decide my trips. As much as I love exploring all of Montreal's incredible restaurants, bars, and attractions, I'm always happy to come home and revisit my favourite spots. Plus- … Continue reading Home Sweet Home

Love Day ♥

There was lots happening around Valentine's Day-- in the kitchen! The in-laws were visiting and we had a beautiful weekend full of food, wine and sweet treats! I started the weekend off with a mushroom, cherry tomato, and pancetta quiche paired with Blanche de Chambly's. We then hopped over to Modavie (our fave spot) for some dinner and … Continue reading Love Day ♥

Power Health Hour

With my recent obsession with the 'Oh She Glows' cookbook by Angela Liddon, I've come to enjoy the occasional vegan snack, breaky, lunch and dinner, and a more positive outlook on healthy eating. Most vegan, gluten free, and health conscious food items can be pricey, but sometimes it's worth it to spoil your body with these superfoods. Not … Continue reading Power Health Hour

Eating Sharp With Borolo

Another birthday treat this year was a steak dinner on Sunday. Not only did we eat like King's, we drank like them too. We paired the Fontanafredda Barolo DOCG 2010 with creamy blue cheese smoothed over a 9oz steak with baked potato and grilled asparagus. Simply perfect.
