Lemon Meringue French Toast Recipe

It’s February already, can you believe it? Soon, Spring will be right around the corner, but in the meantime, February means Valentine’s Day, which means an influx of heart-shaped sweets and pink. I happen to love hearts and pink things, so I’m not complaining. Valentine’s also happens to be the anniversary of my first post […]

broccoli & cheddar grilled cheese

Broccoli and Cheddar Grilled Cheese Recipe

I love snowboarding. I love the snow, the speed and the sound your board makes as you carve through fresh powder. One of me and Mike’s favourite spots is the glacier on Whistler. You have to take a rope tow (not particularly fun on a board) and there’s a bit of a hike (actually, a […]

Sriracha Caramel Corn Recipe

I’m not the type to enjoy the Super Bowl (give me the Puppy Bowl any day!) but I must I am intrigued by game day food. From what I can tell, game day food can be, but is not limited to: pizza, wings, dips, chips, nachos, sandwiches, and anything with cheese. I enjoy all of […]

ushi no kura - yakiniku in tokyo

Ushi No Kura

Tokyo is full of food. Walk down any major street and you’ll be surprised by the sheer amount of restaurants. Even on tiny side streets you come across tiny dedicated storefronts selling roasted sweet potatoes, mochi, or rice rice crackers. Tokyo is a city where you can specialize. Take the sweet potato store: there might […]

Mushroom Onion Tart Recipe

When we were teenagers, my mom used to stock the freezer up with loads of frozen foods for me and my brother to bake up or microwave on a whim. Back in the day Kevin and I didn’t really have any real interest in cooking. We were more interested in ease and convenience. Even though it’s […]

snack saturdays - calbee kfc chips

Snack Saturdays: Calbee KFC Potato Chips

Japan is the land of wacky salty snacks. Much to Mike’s dismay, I love wandering around the endless snack aisles. To the untrained eye, all the colorful packages look the same, but a closer look reveals Mountain Dew Cheetos; foie, truffle and red wine chips; and Kewpie mayo. I haven’t tried any of those yet, […]

Sriracha Roasted Cauliflower Recipe

I am a huge fan of cauliflower. I know some people who think cauliflower should be banned from cruditè platters, but I actually love it raw. You can always count on me to finish off those crunchy white florets of goodness. Of course, if I happen to have a ziplock bag on hand, you might […]

Jalapeño Honey Garlic Chicken Recipe

I love garlic, but whenever I peel and chop it my fingers end up smelling like garlic for the rest of the day. I haven’t resorted to buying peeled garlic (yet!) and I recently just discovered a new garlic peeling trick at saveur.com. All you do is crush the cloves (they suggest using the heel […]

Snack Saturdays: Pierre Hermè's Montebello

Happy Saturday Everyone! I’ve decided on a new feature for 2014 – Snack Saturdays. Every Saturday I’ll feature something I’ve been snacking on, whether it be fancy, like these decadent Pierre Hermè pastries, or simple, like a newly discovered favourite brand of chips. Mostly it’ll be an excuse for me to eat lots of snacks […]

Breakfast Taquito Recipe

The first time I had taquitos I was in the middle of an epic fight with an old ex-boyfriend. It was so long ago that I don’t remember what the fight was about. And to be honest, I don’t remember much about him at all. We weren’t fighting when we sat down and ordered, but […]

Pasta, Sausage & Broccoli Bake

I don’t know about you but I love a good snow storm and all the recent crazy photos of snow are making me nostalgic for my snow-filled childhood. Don’t get me wrong, Tokyo is wonderful in the winter, but the one thing that it doesn’t have is snow. The winters are really dry here, which […]

Grilled Egg and Cheese Recipe

Are you guys as obsessed with grilled cheese sandwiches as I am? I am a true grilled cheese lover. And adding a egg just blows all other grilled cheeses out of the water. Technically this recipe isn’t a grilled cheese at all, just a single slice of bread with cheese fused to it’s outsides, but […]
