Vancouver, Canada & Beyond.
I'm on a journey, and that means sharing my own personal stories and experiences. My goal is to be relatable, provide inspiration while being authentic. Whatever your lemons, we can do this together.
Just when you’ve exhausted one more meal on the BBQ, it’s time to change it up for slow-braised short ribs and truffle mashed potatoes. I can taste it now! Yum! Whether we’re ready for it, fall is on its way. However, I, for one, am inspired by the change in the seasons. With our latest […]
I’m excited to be entertaining again, although I’m a bit rusty these days, so finding something easy and tasty to prepare is key. I love experimenting with new recipes; even better is making them up as I go along, adding my own special twist. Some of my most memorable meals are the ones inspired by […]
Summer isn’t summer without the first taste of potato salad. My mother made the best, and it happens to be one of my personal favourites. I’ve probably consumed buckets of it over the years, full disclosure, it’s incredibly addictive. With a few simple ingredients, it’s hard to nail down what it is about this creamy potato […]
It’s interesting to find myself here, yes, I’m writing about being vegan, to be clear, I’m not. Although, I’m learning a lot about the diet, it’s a bit extreme for me, but I’m all in as far as trying new plant based food. My youngest son became vegan last December, Christmas was interesting, to say […]
It’s another holiday season, I’m not religious, but I still like to partake in a variety of seasonal festivities. Regardless of which holiday I’m celebrating, for me, it’s about bringing people together and enjoying good food. Unfortunately, during these times of self-isolating brings new challenges, like “where are my dinner guests?” It’s not ideal being […]

With the new year and all those resolutions of eating healthier and saving money, this couldn’t be more perfect, enjoy! BORSCHT 1 28oz […]
My son was home for the weekend, bananas in tow… “mom, I didn’t want to leave them at my place, they’ll get too ripe, maybe you can use?” What’s a mom to do? Make banana bread, of course! This is a tried and true recipe passed on to me, definitely a family favourite… Banana Bread Recipe […]
I love a fresh tomato sauce and it’s the perfect season for sweet cherry and grape tomatoes at the market. What to have for dinner is easy when you have these lovelies… 2 pints or more of cherry/grape tomatoes halved extra virgin olive oil 2 cloves garlic, smashed and minced large handful of fresh basil […]
Living on the West Coast definitely has its advantages. Who would argue, we have milder temperatures, oceans, beaches, mountains, forests, literally the most beautiful outdoors in our backyard. So when my son came home from pulling up crab traps and hands me fresh crab, its hard not get excited. Fresh crab comes with a celebratory […]
