It all started with a question: can you microwave an egg? I did what anyone with a thought in their head and working internet connection would do: I Googled it. As it turns out, you can microwave an egg. I skimmed through a few recipes that included this method, from quiches to complex frittatas, some of which were made in a mug. When I saw that, an idea began to take shape in my mind, and a recipe was born. I call it the Smoked Salmon Egg Frittata Breakfast Burger, and it’s ah-maz-ing. (more…)
A little while ago, I hosted brunch at my apartment for a few of my closest friends. The great thing about hosting is that you get to set the rules of the game. In this case, it meant that for one day, everyone had to operate on Sara time.
That meant brunch – in the late afternoon. (more…)
For one thing, I’m very choosy with makeup and know exactly what I want (and don’t want). Giving up the ability to choose for myself in order to get a bunch of randomly-selected miniature products and potions that will just clutter up my bathroom counter is just not my thang.
Before Summerlicious in Toronto ended for the year, Lena and I determined to squeeze in one more fine dining experience before time ran out.
Lena suggested Rosewater Supper Club, a hotspot frequented by celebs like Jude Law, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Wahlberg, David Beckham, and Sir Anthony Hopkins during the Toronto International Film Festival. (more…)
Summerlicious in Toronto has rolled around again! That wonderful time of year when even twenty-something peasants like us (I kid) get the chance to try out the fanciest restaurants in the city at a much more reasonable price. I blogged about our experience at Toula restaurant during last year’s Summerlicious festival, but this year, we set our sights even higher. (more…)
I’ve been trying to eat really healthy again over the past month, and while most of it has been smooth sailing, the thing that’s been the hardest to say goodbye to are processed sugar and fat-laden desserts, like cakes, brownies, and ice creams. Since munching on fruit just wasn’t cutting it when it came to my dessert cravings, I decided to invent a solution. (more…)
Mexican is probably one of my all-time favourite cuisines. It’s vibrant, flavourful, and fresh.
BlogTO recently put together a list of Toronto’s best Mexican restaurants, which I swiftly sent to all my friends. Luckily they were equally eager to give some of them a try, so on Friday night we made reservations for post-work week dinner and drinks at Frida Restaurant & Bar. (more…)
Momofuku’s legacy began in 2004, in a loud, crowded, inexpensive little ramen shop in New York’s East Village. Their particular brand of tasty Americanized Japanese, Korean, and Chinese dishes proved to be a smash hit, and in 2012, they opened a sister location right here in Toronto by the same name. (more…)
I don’t think I’ve ever felt so uncivilized and brutish in my life. There’s nothing like afternoon tea to make you realize how lacking you are in old-fashioned etiquette. Or is that just me? (more…)
Last night Monica came over to my place for a girls’ night in. For us this consists of comfortable clothing (hello, leggings), wine, delivery, and something fun to watch.
We cracked open the first bottle while we decided on what to order for dinner. (more…)
My friends and I try to get together at the end of every week for a catch-up over good food and a couple of drinks. On Friday, the four of us met at Spacco Restaurant & Bar, a lively, sprawling spot offering up delicious Italian cuisine, multiple pool tables, and a bumping dance floor with a DJ on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. (We just came to eat, though, because we are 22 going on 85.) (more…)
Haaaappy Monday! Here are a few snapshots of random moments from the past week. (more…)
It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted a recipe! This is what I served the other night when I had my relatives over for dinner at my apartment. (more…)
