Food: Dinner Tonight – Butternut Squash Pizza

A few weeks ago I had food poisoning from a chicken salad I bought for lunch. The same one I normally ordered from an organically sustainable eatery in downtown.  After that incident, I haven’t craved meat and the idea of seafood makes my stomach turn. Not sure what happened, but it’s as if my stomach […]

Food: Dinner Tonight – Fall Salad, You Bring The Squash

I prefer the taste of roasted Acorn over pumpkin any day. But you are more than welcome to try any squash your heart desires.  You know, in […]

Food: Dinner Tonight – Coq Au Vin A Try

I’ve always considered Coq Au Vin an unobtainable recipe to follow for my kitchen. I don’t know why I freak out over French cuisine. Perhaps it’s because I appreciate the art to the point, I am intimated by it. But I was watching Leap Year for the umpteenth time last night, where there is a […]

Here’s what’s happening this week – I have family in town. Which means, there is no deciding or organizing any meal at home.

Food: What You’ll Find In My Mediterranean Kitchen

For every site I find suggesting what constitutes healthy consumption of food, there is another, stating otherwise.  I have to admit. I take all of the information offered with a grain of salt and continue to, simply follow what I’ve learned from generations past about our Mediterranean cuisine and lifestyle. Sure I tweak the recipes […]

Food: Dinner Tonight – Chipotle, Lime Chicken and Fries

The weather has finally turned for the better in the city – with warm days and SUNSHINE throughout the city and not just downtown. I love this time of the year, when the mornings are crispy cold-ish and the days although shorter are sunny and hot. The only challenge is while other parts of the […]

Food: London Vegan Eateries

Before my trip to London for a few days in May, I made a list of restaurants I wanted to try, and out of the list of ten places, we only experienced two – which were mostly based on hype and the food not as spectacular as the menu made it sound to be. So […]
