The weather has been amazing lately and that only means one thing - patios and BBQ! Luckily for us, Samuel Adams is teaming up with 15 restaurants across Toronto to bring us Toronto BBQ Week! What does that mean exactly? 15 BBQ joints across Toronto is offering an amazing deal - $15 for a dish paired with a pint of Samuel Adams Boston Lager

We recently moved downtown and having to think of new things to cook for lunch and dinner is starting to consume a lot of our time. Let's be real, after working 9-5 we're really not up for having a new recipe for each day of the week. We prefer making big batches of food to last us through the week and this Chorizo, turkey and lentil medley is perfect for that!

The kitchen's full of gadgets that have never seen the light of day, the closet's full of clothes even our grandmothers won't wear and the number of flower bouquets purchased could be enough to decorate a wedding.
We've finally ran out of mother's day gift ideas after 27 years of brainstorming. Luckily for us, LifeExperiences came along and we were filled with hope again. Let's be real, as great as physical gifts are, they often end up in a box somewhere in the basement until it's time for spring cleaning.

Sometimes, I just want a snack that's easy to prepare but also healthy - especially after working out (I'm trying to be more active this year). With the weather getting warmer in the city, I find myself craving fresh fruits. What better way to enjoy them than with some granola and yogurt? I picked up the new iogo package the other day, which came in a resealable bag and decided to make a yogurt bowl.

For the past little while, the talk of the town has been all about going organic. It's been really interesting to learn about regulations and its impacts. We do have to admit that it's a little daunting to know the non-organic tomatoes we've been buying are not actually supposed to be the size of a watermelon. Another industry that we recently learned about was the seafood market and the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and what we can do as consumers to ensure that we're buying sustainable seafood.

Noodles or rice? What a tough call - to me at least. And being quite indecisive when it comes to choosing where & what to eat, it's not an easy decision for me. Luckily, Cristina & Jon (@CJ.noms) and Jeff (@jeffahlei) made it easy for me when they invited me over to try out the newly opened MeNaMi in North York. It has received some buzz since it's opening as a popular Japanese Udon & Sake bar in that neighbourhood.

'Never drink on an empty stomach' is a lesson I learned during my time in university and an important one at that. Before a dance-filled night out with girlfriends, what better way to start the night than with good food and cocktails? A few weeks ago, we headed over to Ufficio on Ossington Ave. and Dundas St. W., a new spot that's been getting great reviews by many.
