I'm a dreamer; my mind is always wandering off to far off places I'd rather be... sundrenched fields of wild flowers and breezy huts shaded by mango trees. Sometimes I'd wish myself back to the memorable places I've loved, and moments when I've felt truly content. I took a short trip to Portland this past [...]

I very much favour sweet breakfast foods over savoury ones; it's how I get to satisfy my incredibly sweet-tooth daily, but I also do appreciate a good savoury breakfast, I reserve meals like this socca and cilantro sauce for special mornings. Weekend mornings where I do manage to get out of bed and go for [...]

For me, spring begins with cherry blossoms, when streets and parks are awash in pink fluffiness - that is when I know spring has arrived. I've seen a handful of cherry blossoms in my neighbourhood and we've been basking in some spring-like weather these past couple of days, all clear and exciting signs that we're [...]

We're slowly springing out of the dreary days of winter. Through the incessant rain and cold, there are gentle signs of spring's emergence; this morning I noticed the tiny red buds of the magnolia tree across the street. Our winter wasn't as bad as it was in other places, it just felt like a long [...]

There was a restaurant in Kits, it's long gone now, I was so hooked on their sweet potato fries I was convinced they put something in them. The rest of the food was subpar at best; nonetheless, we practically hung out there every Friday night for those crispy and salty sweet caramelized fries. Served with [...]

Long before the cookie butter craze, there were speculoos, the crunchy caramelized spiced cookies which is the main ingredient the cookie butter. Speculoos are special in themselves, my local London Drugs used to carry the Belgian ones around Christmas time; crispy and thin with punchy flavours, they are so good with tea. A while back, [...]

I think it bears repeating that I love the romance of love, it often times makes me wish I could fall in love repeatedly just for that delightful magical rush. Perhaps that is what Valentine's Day is, a reminder to celebrate the romance of love. This year I thought about red themed desserts, and discovered [...]

I'm not even trying for dramatic effect when I say that I've been meaning to go to Thomas Haas for years! Seriously, I've wanted to visit the café since the first location opened in 2005, back then I used to buy Thomas Haas chocolate bars at the Whole Foods in West Van, my favourite were [...]

I really like these cookies! I think about them sometimes in the most inopportune times - like while walking through the fog this morning. We were awoken by foghorns today; it went off persistently every few minutes until it forced me out of bed, and as the sun shone through the fog on my way [...]

It must have been somewhere between sleep and consciousness when I decided I was going to be eating soups for the first month of this New Year. Christmas was just over and we were languidly ensconced in that passing space of nothingness between Christmas and New Year's while we waited for that imminent change. I [...]
