365 Project

Another year, another 365 day photography project

I decided to embark upon another 365 project. The idea is to take and upload a picture once a day for 365 days. What better day to start than January ...

The phorrito

As you know, I am a huge fan of converting foods of all nations into unusual formats (e.g. spaghetti burritos, bulgogi tacos, thanksgiving pizza, etc, etc). So when I saw this article ...

Another year, another 365 day photography project

I decided to embark upon another 365 project. The idea is to take and upload a picture once a day for 365 days. What better day to start than January 1? Nice and fresh. I woke up pretty late this morning after last night’s New Years Eve shenanigans and have been feeling quite lazy after […]

The phorrito

As you know, I am a huge fan of converting foods of all nations into unusual formats (e.g. spaghetti burritos, bulgogi tacos, thanksgiving pizza, etc, etc). So when I saw this article on Foodbeast, I knew I must make a Phorritto. Have I told you the story of how I moved to a small island in BC […]

Ricotta gnocchi with pancetta, sage and pine nuts

I’m baaaaack…. And this time in my new(ish) house in my new(ish) kitchen. Ok I need new kitchen cabinets but look how much lovely natural light I get in here? Perfect for food photography. You will not that River remains an apt observer of the culinary arts. I’ve been racking my brain trying to think of something fun […]

Welcome to the wet coast

Well, I have some news, Soph n’ Stuff readers. Kind of a big announcement, really. I have picked up and moved all of my earthly belongings across the country, back to my heart’s home in beautiful British Columbia. Shortly after my last post in June we got the news that Cheesler would be transferred to […]

365 days project: June

Six months! I can’t believe this year is halfway through! Can you? I was doing lots of cooking, gardening and eating in June. I think my favourite photo from last month, however, is this one: It’s my favourite because I was at my sister’s house and I came into the kitchen and saw the way […]

365 Days Project: May

I am a little late getting my monthly update up for May. I was on vacation and then deathly ill for several days so I was not much up for blogging. So without further ado, I bring you May! Lots of flowers, dogs and grilling. I was lucky to spend the latter days of the […]

Poached eggs and ramps on rye

Remember when I stumbled across a patch of wild leeks a few weeks ago and was ecstatic to collect them for some seasonal recipes? Imagine my surprise (yet again) to come across them in my crisper when rummaging around for lunch ideas! They hold up surprisingly well in the fridge. Of course I had to come up […]

Now for something a little different

This week at Soph n’ Stuff I am proud to bring you a somewhat different topic than we are used to. You see, when I created this blog I did so with the intention to write and post pictures about food, travel, photography and “general sophiness”. Since then it has evolved into a more food-centric […]

Breakfast sandwiches

Home-made sausage biscuit sandwiches!

The other day, whilst driving past a billboard advertising Tim Horton’s “Aged Cheddar Biscuit Sandwich”, I commented to Cheesler that the “aged” part seems weirdly placed, like it describes that the entire biscuit sandwich was aged. An elderly biscuit sandwich, if you will. That got me thinking, and I soon found myself with a real hankering […]

Strawberry shortcake

No bake strawberry shortcake with mascarpone

I know what you’re thinking, loyal readers of Soph n’ Stuff. “Surely this must be some mistake, I never see desserts on here!” First of all, don’t call me Shirley. Secondly, it is true that I am not much of a connoisseur of the saccharine arts. If I’m dining out, I will gladly choose a […]
