St. Lawrence Market

I was going through some pictures I took last year, looking for some material and inspiration for today’s post when I found some that I took at the St. Lawrence Market one day whilst shopping. I LOVE the St. Lawrence Market. When we first moved to Toronto and had just finished viewing the apartment we […]

Montenegro: Black Mountain

I have finally started to look through my Europe photos in the hopes of organizing, sharing and printing them. While doing so I recalled that I had intended to turn my blog into a travel blog and post updates along the way, with photos and interesting tidbits. Well, that didn’t happen. But I’m going to […]

Short Cuts to Better Housekeeping

I am a total sucker for the antique market. Now, you may be thinking that I adore looking at lovingly restored bureaus or mothball scented fur coats. No my friends, I love finding weird old printed stuff. I went to the market a few years ago (have you seen the video?) and came home with […]

Pub Night

All week I have been thinking about nachos. Tonight, finally, I present to you: Pub Night. Who needs a local drinking hole when you’ve got your own so conveniently close to home…at home? And it’s so close to bed, so once you’ve had your fill of greasy food and beer, you can just roll on […]

Casa de Sandy

My lovely and stylish aunt Sandy lives here in Ontario. I always look forward to visiting her not only for her wit, charm, good food and bad influences, but to bask in the fabulousness of her home. She always jokes about who is going to have to get rid of all her junk when she’s […]

The Senator Restaurant

The Senator Restaurant is the self-proclaimed “oldest restaurant in Toronto”. It has been in business in the same location for 76 years, and has survived through many eras, including a family restaurant, an expansion to a steakhouse, and a jazz bar. It boasts a fabulous mural of a man enjoying a steaming hot cuppa. When […]

A fond farewell, a joyous welcome, and an apology to my bank account.

I would like to take a moment to say goodbye to my Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-55 mm Lens. An unfortunate tripod mounting incident resulted in its demise yesterday. It happened immediately after I exclaimed to my boyfriend that I need to step up my food blogging and take better photos so that I will be […]
