Salt and Pepper Shrimp Recipe

Whenever I’m looking to make a fast and easy dinner I turn to seafood. It cooks up in a flash and takes on flavours well. Shrimp is one of my go-to seafoods, if only because I usually have frozen shrimp in the fridge. It’s a habit that probably comes from my mom – she often […]

Happy Halloween! Do you guys have plans!? Every year, I want to make myself a paper mache animal head and every year Halloween comes and goes and I don’t end up making a paper mache animal head. Instead I’ll be eating all the candy (but mostly the Twix, Kit Kats and Coffee Crisps) because I […]

And with that, I’m glad that it’s Friday. I spent the week spending nights in with Mike and meeting up with friends, new […]
