Brunch At The King Eddy

Mother’s Day around my house was all about desserts this year. It was also about some lovely gifts the family spoiled me with, mind you. But after months of trying to stay off gluten and sugar, Sunday offered up several memorable opportunities for me to make up for some of that good behaviour. First thing, […]

Getting Our Fill of Fish And Chips

One of the nicest things about spending time on the east coast was being able to get our fill of fresh local seafood. We are big fans of fresh fish in our family, and we cooked up some great meals featuring the local catch of the day. I was absolutely amazed at how there was […]

Montreal’s Not Just for Bagels

  My husband is originally from Colombia, so we are always on the lookout for authentic Colombian food which is not always that easy to find.  We stumbled across one bakery/restaurant in Montreal that is fabulous for serving authentic Colombian dishes and have fallen in love with one specific specialty.  We can’t visit the city […]

Local Restaurant Review – Thai By Prasai

Just thought I’d share one of my recent obsessions.  Thai food is by far one of my favorite cuisines,  I never get tired of a good curry and some spicy papaya salad. I’m lucky to have been able to spend quite a bit of time in Thailand, so I have developed a picky palate when […]

Leaving Montreal: THE ROUTINE

Montreal is a fabulous city. This past year, our family was lucky enough to have access to an apartment there that was a short walk to some of its best areas. We were able to spend enough time there to really get to know our way around. Early on, we found we couldn’t leave the […]

The Great Ice Cream Quest:
The Big Chill

Second on our list of places to check out from blogTO’s list of the best ice cream shops in Toronto was The Big Chill at 367 Manning Avenue in Toronto’s Little Italy. Since my goal for this outing was to have some fun with my girls, this turned out to be a perfect spot.
