Galway Foodie Weekend

I’ve been wanting to visit Galway for months, not just because one of my best friends lives there – the food scene in Galway is meant to be amazing. And that is how #GalwayFoodieWeekend2k17 was born. I arrived into the city at about 8pm on Friday night and we got straight to business with dinner…

Pad Thai Fries

When I lived in Toronto I had these once at Lisa Marie’s and have thought of them often ever since then. It doesn’t help that I follow them on Instagram and they regularly post pics of said fries. So I’d been craving them for a while, and with it being the last week before payday and…

Momofuku Ginger Scallion Noodles

Summer 2015 my friends and I were in New York City and we went to Momofuku. I had heard of Momofuku and David Chang but to me actually going to eat Momofuku was up there with going to the moon. I knew that people have gone there but I wouldn’t be one of them –…

Cooking Project: The Ultimate Red Sauce

After making my Caesar Salad last weekend I had a couple of anchovies left to use up and in my bookmarks I came across this recipe. Seeing as I had all the ingredients for this already in the house, I figured it was a no-brainer to give this a try. And I’m so glad I…

Cooking Project: Caesar Salad

A nice easy one to kick off April, I say easy because I followed this recipe from Jamie Oliver which uses natural yogurt as the base for the creamy dressing. It’s a way of lightening an unhealthy salad but I countered any good by adding in some bacon lardons and also some croutons…because I feel…

Cooking Project: Schnitzel

I have been cooking up a storm this last few weeks – Spring has sprung and now that the evenings are getting longer I’m more motivated to do things when I get home from work. However, the brighter evenings didn’t translate into my kitchen last night meaning that most of my pics came out kinda…

Cooking Project: Chocolate Chip Cookies

It was a real baking project weekend last weekend – which was so therapeutic and fun and just what I needed after a stressful work week. I’d been wanting to try this Buzzfeed guide to making perfect chocolate chip cookies for a long time but I knew this would be take a lot of time. Some…

Cooking Project: Blondies

I have never been a fan of white chocolate. I’m that person that screams “it’s not even real chocolate” and throw it far away from me and my loved ones. So when I came across a recipe for Blondies I was skeptical. But after a traumatic incident with brownies (I ate too many of them…

Favourite Foodie Movies

I wanted to share a couple of my favourite movies about my favourite topic – food. I mean….what else is there? Chef: a chef working in a high-end trendy restaurant becomes disillusioned with his career and opens up a food truck. On the way he reconnects with his son and his love for food. This…

Weekend in Belfast

It’s been a long time since myself and my boyfriend have had a holiday together. When we lived in Canada all our free time was spent either going  home or with visitors. Not that I would change that in any way but it seemed we were due some free time. We decided on Belfast because…

Cooking Project – Resuming Soon

Hi guys! I know things got a little dark in the last post – it was something I’d been thinking about for a long time and wanted to write. Thank you for allowing me to share it. How is it coming up to March already?! That is crazy!  Time is going by so quickly and…

Busy Times

Sorry I haven’t been updating very often as of late! Work has been very crazy and so has my personal life. I’ve been trying to have a standing friend date every Wednesday night where whoever is free to meet up – meets up for drinks/tea/burritos/a movie. So far it’s been going well and it’s great…
