Kitchen Party: Sweet and Spicy Green Bean Pomegranate Chestnut Fry

Pomegranate season usually runs from October to January in the Western hemisphere, and possibly longer this year as the full-on bone-chilling cold hasn’t fully hit us yet. I don’t know about you, but I’m welcoming the extended stay, especially that grocery stores are practically handing them out right now. Green beans are not in season, but I […]

Hook-Ups: Blog Hop!

Our friend Shelley from Pass The Herpes passed along this fun quiz that allows us to introduce ourselves more properly all the while sending you off to blogs we love. It’s called a BLOG HOP! We’ve changed a couple of questions since this was originally made for authors to promote their books, but overall it’s […]

Kitchen Party: Spicy Coconut Milk Leek Soup

Over-Easy: The Bristol Yard

The best brunch place to go to on a cold, rainy day is one that’s close by. As in, you can look out your front window to see how long the line-up is. We kept an eye out while getting dressed and once the coast was clear, we headed over.  Even though it wasn’t early, you […]

Kitchen Party: Farmer’s Market Spaghetti Squash

When you live ridiculously close to a grocery store (104 size-8 steps, door-to-door), it’s hard to be convinced to buy food anywhere else. Sure, you could order a pizza, or you could go buy a frozen one that won’t taste quite as good, but it means you won’t have to live with the guilt of […]

Quickies: Stone Soup Foodworks

It’s no secret that Ottawa isn’t renowned for its food options, not to mention street food options (although we hear that the city’s following the street eats hype by opening some 20 lots for food trucks in the near future). Sandyhill is a particularly strange neighbourhood food-wise. It’s always intrigued us how a neighbourhood that […]
