As a reader, 2017 was a good year for me. Except for a difficult month of December during which all the books I started seemed to disappoint me, I discovered great books throughout the year. As a result, I was more and more eager to take a break from watching Masterchef Australia to read another chapter. Excited to share with you...
Trying a lot of new recipes means that you're going to prepare some dishes you'll adore and others that you will never do again. Nevertheless, I love testing new recipes because I'm always searching for my new favourite dish. Finding a great recipe that you want to make again and again makes all the other misses worthwhile. Here's a list...
At the last-minute on Christmas day, I was trying to decide what dessert to make for a reception on the same day. Then, I remembered a delicious dark chocolate tart I once raved about in a café and decided to replicate it using what I had in my pantry. Here's my lazy version of a chocolate ganache tart in three simple...
This Christmas, I've been lucky enough to receive a Leuchtturm1917 notebook, pink no less! That can only mean one thing: I'm going to start 2018 with my own bullet journal. A bullet journal is a crossover between a notebook, a journal and a planner. The special thing about it is that you start doing it from scratch. It means that...
I don't have a sweet tooth. However, in the holiday season, I want Christmas cookies. I just have to eat some. This year, I will be on vacation during the holidays for the first time in years and I plan to cook a lot of cookies, in my pajamas, while listening to Christmas music. Some classics (and guilty pleasures) are just...
I don't know about you, but for the holidays, I have four potlucks planned. Therefore, I was in desperate need of ideas. Consulting my good friend Pinterest, there were a few dishes that caught my attention. They looked delicious, easy and not too much trouble to carry. Healthy, 4-ingredients salmon cucumber rolls: 2. A fancy spinach, pecan, apple and feta salad: 3. A...
Recently, I began rewatching Sex and the city (not the movies) starting from season 1. My head has been full of questions ever since. Did you know the series aired almost twenty years ago? Twenty years! Season one started in 1998. Despite good storylines and complex characters, what struck me the most was how much the first few seasons perfectly...
Winter can be a very harsh season. When it gets freezing cold and that ice threatens to make me fall at every step on the sidewalk, I catch myself dreaming about being outside in my flips flops bathing in summer sunlight. But winter does bring great things: building snowmen, making snow angels, getting inside for a cup of hot cocoa, cocooning under a...
In the last few weeks, my foodie friend and I were on a mission. Before she went away for her trip to Japan, we would try some of the best Izakaya in Montreal and pick our favourite. In case you don't know: an Izakaya is a Japanese pub where people go to drink (a lot) and eat, typically to...
We know that it's Thanksgiving and that it's getting colder outside. However, that doesn't mean you will see me eating turkey and stew every day. Instead, today's suggestion for a light lunch/dinner is all pretty colors and Asian flavors. You will find the recipes for this balanced dish below. The marinated tuna with a sriracha mayo is from Chew out loud. The spicy edamame...
