Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins Recipe

I have a new found love for baking.  But I’d be lying if I didn’t say it was mostly because of how my condo smells after I’m done.  I think one of the reasons I gravitate towards baking is that it is so methodical.  There are exact measurements which all come together perfectly to create…

February – Things To Do in Toronto

I”m going to start a new monthly series!.  There’s so much going on in the city at any given time which is what I love about living here but sometimes it can be hard to narrow it down.  Every month, I’m going to try and help.  I’m not going to make this list long or…

Travel: How To Pack a Carry-On

When it comes to packing, I have to say that I’ve developed my own Marie Kondo-esque system.  I used to be that girl who had to take a massive suitcase with her anytime she got on a plane.  Whenever I returned home, I realized I didn’t use or wear HALF of what I had taken…

Recipe: Slow Cooked Pulled Pork

There are some recipes that are, for a lack of a better word, intimidating.  I avoid these recipes mainly because if I mess it up then I really don’t want to have to go down to Subway and settle for a sandwich.  Pulled pork has been one of those intimidating recipes for me because you…

Food & Drink Deals in Toronto

Who doesn’t love a good deal? When it comes to Happy Hour in Toronto, the options are abundent but sometimes the timing doesn’t make sense (who does happy hour from 2-5PM??). After a little bit of research, meaning eating and drinking, I’ve compiled a list of daily food and drink deals at restaurants and bars…

Review: Farmr Eatery and Catering

Living in the city can get hard sometimes.  Don’t’ get me wrong, for the most part I love it, but being at a distance from family can be difficult.  This Thanksgiving was particularly hard because I had plans to go home but got sick and ended up staying in the city.  Seeing everyone’s family dinners…
