We All Scream

Last week I received a message from a friend that contained a link, and nothing more. My reply was a simple but heartfelt Sweet Baby Jesus!

Leftover Delivery System

I treated myself to an order of Bombay Kitchen deliciousness on Friday knowing full well that it was substantially more than one person – or more accurately, three people – could reasonably eat. Because leftovers.

A Taste Of Africa

Since the temperatures dropped down to the mid 20s today, I decided that it made sense to make a stew. Because nothing says cool and refreshing like a hearty summer stew.

Monster Cookies

Cookies are nothing new to my kitchen. But until today I’ve never attempted to make the famous Levain Bakery cookies.

I Do Not Understand Time

We have officially witnessed more than 50% of the moments this year has to offer, and yet the seconds that have tick-tocked away can’t explain the last 184 days. How is it that March and April felt like the longest decades ever, yet May and June came and went in an instant?

Quiche en Français Or Auf Deutsch?

Having no idea what to make for dinner this eve, I took inventory of the supplies I had on hand. Leftover broccoli, fresh asparagus, Canadian bacon from Trotters that I meant to cook a few days ago, a dozen large eggs, and mushrooms that were dangerously close to the end of their life. And then…

A Taste Of Canadiana

As a kid I remember countless hours spent hovering next to the kitchen while my mom and dad prepared meals or treats for me and my brothers. I remember getting my hands caked in dough and sugar whenever I got the chance to help out. And when I was lucky, I remember getting to eat…

Around The World In Twenty Dishes

It has been six months since I was anywhere close to a plane and I’m pretty sure the span of time since then has been the longest continuous block of time that I’ve spent at home in years – quite possibly a decade. Since I really don’t know when next I’ll be able to travel…

Pandemic Coffee Cake

This week my friend, my academic soul mate, and my awkward cousin turned 40. As part of the celebration, and in lieu of actually getting together – thank you very much pandemic – we decided that cake was in order.

Mmmm, Donuts

After a rather long week that could be best described as a glorious dumpster fire, I decided that the only way to recover was to treat myself to some donuts. To be honest, I would have much preferred treating myself to an adventure that involved a plane and a far away land, but given the…

Around The World In 10 Photos

Just over a week ago I was nominated by my friend Charlie to take part in another photo challenge. This is not the first photo challenge for which I’ve been nominated, but since I haven’t done one in a while, and since I can’t travel at the moment because of physical distancing, I figured it…

Pizza Pi

I’m rather disappointed with myself. Yesterday I made pizza dough for the first time in my life, and not once did I think about pizza pi. The math nerd inside of me is devastated.

Today I Had A Plan

After a rather long and weird week, I decided today to do my best to avoid all things academic. And outside of answering a few emails, writing a few blog posts, and playing around with some data, I think I was rather successful.

More Please

Sweet baby Jesus, I think I just made the sweetest, gooey-est, most delicious butter tart squares that have ever been made. I’m seriously concerned that I might die from an overdose of sugar.
