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 with ramps on rye

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 […]

365 Days Project: April

April has come and gone and winter left with it. Good riddance! My favourite photo from April has got to be this gem. I just love River’s spring haircut…every spring he transforms from a big scruffy gruff to a slim and slender fancy boy. Since it was so chilly this April after he had been shorn, […]

Coconut shrimp featuring Bee Sting hot sauce

This is the third and final post in my series featuring Sauce Empire and their fantastic line of hot sauces. You may recall reading about Jerk fish tacos with Señor Manzana and Chicken Shawarma salad with Roasted Rojo. Here at Soph n’ Stuff we are all about diversity in cuisines. Someone once told me I am […]

Wild leek and duck pizza

It was an early spring day. Crisply sunny, but the ground was still firm with frost. The two of us walked through the forest with our canine companion. He is prone to bursts of excited barking when we cross paths with other hikers and dogs, so I watched the trail ahead carefully. I was watching so […]
