One morning I spent the morning making one of my favourite dishes, fried chicken!
KFC invited me to learn how to make their famous fried chicken! Quirky Chef Bob Blumer was the host for the day, assisting the chefs with some of the duties. Since KFC’s service is usually so fast, and is categorized as fast food, you wouldn’t think that so many steps would be put into each dish.

Cheap & Cheerful Winter Date Night Ideas

It’s starting to get a little bit brighter outside, and milder weather is definitely on the way! That being said, the Toronto winter weather has been known to return with a vengeance! Winter is definitely sticking around for the next few weeks.

I love being downtown all the time, but I am a sucker for an impulse buy. That bakery has a new matcha croissant? Sold. There’s a sale on a cute pair of shoes? Don’t mind if I do! Now that I’m saving up for a wedding and a condo, I need to stop these impulse buys. Loan & Go has some great tips on how to avoid impulse buys!

Another way I’m trying to save money is by going on thriftier date nights. There are lots of great cost effective ways in Toronto to still have fun, but save some cash. Here are some ideas!

Catch the Toronto Light Festival at the Distillery District. Not only is this totally free, but it’s romantic and tons of fun! My favourite is the coloured rings installation.
