Chili Topped with Avocado, Cilantro and Shredded Cheese

I am a huge fan of comfort food and one of the best and easiest comfort foods to prepare is chili! It makes such a great meal, especially on a chilly day. On one such chilly day, I was craving some chili and decided to pull out my copy of a wonderful book by Lucinda […]

Chinese Eggplant, Tofu and Ground Pork

I love eggplant!  Strangely, I remember that I wasn’t so crazy about it when I was a kid. Now I am happy to eat it in a variety of forms: grilled during a BBQ in the summer, in baba ganoush, in stews, in eggplant parmesan – You name it! I have to say though that one of […]

An EPIC Dinner and Theatre Night

My husband and I have a subscription to the Mirvish Theatre shows. As big theatre lovers (especially musicals), it works out nicely for us to have a subscription like this. It’s more convenient than having to purchase individual tickets to each show even if it means we may miss out on promotions or deals that […]
