Have you ever watched a chef shop the farmer's market, getting excited about local ingredients and using them to spontaneously inform the night's menu? That's me with flowers. I'm most in my element when I'm surrounded by in-season blossoms and... Continue reading

In my ongoing quest to eat well, I've found that planning is 90% of the battle. You're more likely to overcome junk food cravings if you've already prepped (and paid for!) a healthy option. For me this means outlining meals... Continue reading

Happy New Year! It’s a bittersweet phrase. While a fresh start has its appeal, it can also be tough to leave behind the holidays. I myself relished two weeks with my family (and away from the computer), and I spent... Continue reading

Here's a little secret. I suffer from a serious case of couch potato syndrome. Once the sun goes down it feels impossible to muster the energy to get myself primped, dressed, and out the door. So historically, New Year's Eve... Continue reading

Happy almost-New Year! I hope that everyone who celebrated Christmas had a wonderful holiday! I myself enjoyed a few days away from the computer and spent some much-needed time with family here in Toronto. We cooked, we saw a few... Continue reading

Over the weekend I flew to Toronto for a ten-day visit with my family. Ever since I've become an avid Instagrammer, I've become more attuned to the various qualities of light—and being here in the Great White North makes realize... Continue reading

Growing up there was a clear division of labor in my family: dad was the pancake master, and mom was in charge of waffles. Depending on which treat you wanted for Sunday breakfast, you knew exactly which parent to appeal... Continue reading
