I love getting together with friends and entertaining, and around Christmas this is especially true! With all of the parties, cookie swaps and casual get-togethers, it can be exhausting finding time just to go shopping, let alone a preparing an entire meal!
Thankfully, there’s a way to grab a tasty appetizer or entire meal with minimal effort, and still show up with a delicious dish!
M&M Food Market has an endless array of snacks, meals, desserts and more to help you navigate this busy time of year, and still turn up on top! Meals don’t have to be bland. This is especially true with M&M’s new line up of holiday products. (more…)
One of the best things about the holidays is all of the festive holiday drinks! It’s the perfect excuse to grab a friend and catch up over a steaming beverage.
For the holidays, Starbucks has some new and old festive drinks that I’m just dying to try. (more…)
I love to bake, but I can’t say that I love to cook. I’m a big foodie and enjoy eating all sorts of meals, but don’t often cook meat heavy dishes. When duBreton sent over some delicious and easy sounding recipes, I knew that I wanted to whip one (or two!) up. (more…)
I’m not a coffee drinker. I often look on enviously at the endless gadgets available for coffee drinkers, and wonder, Does no one care about the tea drinkers? Are we a minority?
Breville has answered my tea gadget dreams. The Breville Tea Maker is the perfect machine for tea drinkers like me! (more…)
Some magical being has declared October National Pizza Month, and I’m all too happy to oblige. Pizza is kind of the perfect food for me because it combines my two great loves (cheese and bread) into one delicious package. Mmm. Pizza.
To celebrate, Queen Margherita Pizza has a special all month long. You can enjoy a fresh Margherita Pizza with Fior di Latte and Fresh Basil along with a Sleemen beer for only $10 during the entire month of October. It’s an awesome deal, their Margherita pizza has the BEST sauce and perfect crust.
Here’s an inspirational photo.

One of my favorite Middle-Eastern Restaurants, Paramount, is now an option for Sunday morning brunch! Starting October 24th, the restaurant will be launching their breakfast campaign complete with Middle Eastern, and Canadian staples. I was lucky to be able to have a special preview of the new and traditional additions to the menu.
Some of the items that will be served are: Eggs and Sausage, Omelet with a variety of veggies such as onions and bell peppers, and my favorite, the Manakeesh which is a Middle Eastern breakfast special, sort of like a bagel, almost like a pizza. The Manakeesh is best described as baked dough with thyme, cheese or meat.
Here are my favorite items from the breakfast menu:
Zaatar/Cheese Manakeesh $2.99-$4.99 (Depending on which flavor)
This Manakeesh had two different styles to try. The spices on one side were thyme, sesame seeds and olive oil. It was a nice combination with the other half which was melted akawi cheese.
I love lobster, and I love bacon. These are facts. When bacon and lobster are together in one dish, it’s a happy day. When I first spotted the Lobster Burger from the Carbon Bar in a photo, I eyed it and wondered where the lobster was. When I went to try it for myself earlier this week, I got my answer! (hint: there’s a lot of lobster.) (more…)
