It snowed last night – soup season has arrived! Not that it ever leaves; it is definitely acceptable to eat hot soup in the middle of the summer; but there is just something about the cold weather, and hot soup in a mug. (Yes – […]

Pad Thai inspired Stir Fry With Spaghetti Squash

The number one question I get when someone finds out I cook for a living is, “What’s your favourite thing to cook?” usually I hesitate but the answer always ends up being Pad Thai or Stir Fry. Its true; I just love the way you […]

Stuffed Peppers

Thanksgiving preparation went as smoothly as it could go (especially with the amount that was made), all baked goods had their final touches, potatoes were peeled and soaking in water, bread was diced for stuffing and set aside in the freezer until needed. It was […]

Milano with my man-o

Milano with my man-o

Milan was jaw-dropping gorgeous, from the train station to the cathedral. If I made it seem like Iceland, Nice or other parts of Italy were beautiful; multiply that by 6… at least. I don’t have much to say about Milan since it was just a […]

Transportation is so advanced here it is unbelievable, each station has an abundance of trains going all over; getting you exactly where you need to go (on time), and usually multiple times a day depending where (and it’s cheap; so that’s like an extra bonus […]
