Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake Recipe a la Joy the Baker

We tackled another re-creation taken from the wonderful Joy the Baker.  Obviously when you decide to make this you forgo any sense of healthy eating.  So don’t even bother with it. This is one richly rich, fatty, drink.  Seriously.  We thought this would make a wonderful party drink, obviously not something to whip up on […]

Avocado Pound Cake Recipe a la Joy the Baker

Over the weekend I was finally able to meet up with LockerBud to bake the Avocado Pound Cake from a recipe he found from Joy the Baker‘s blog.  When he brought up the recipe/idea, I immediately said YES as I am a big, BIG fan of avocado.  I also invited GRock along for the ride […]

Laziza Modern Mediterranean – A Tasting Event

Update: This restaurant is now called Bellaggio Laziza Restaurant. I was fortunate enough to be among some fellow bloggers invited to a tasting event held by a new-ish Mediterranean restaurant on Davie – Laziza. Just to give a bit of background on the restaurant, according to the press release, the menu is inspired by the […]

Okonomiyaki Kinoya 花の屋- Kyoto, Japan

Our first dinner in Kyoto was something I very much anticipated.  It was Okonomiyaki お好み焼!!  If you don’t know what okonomiyaki is, click here. Okonomiyaki Kinoya 花の屋 was located directly across from our hotel “Super Hotel” (which was a really good hotel by the way).  The prices seemed reasonable and it looked authentic so we […]

Random Eats – Kyoto

Honestly, while in Japan, I never went into a meal or ate anything because I was hungry.  It was more because I HAD to eat it because I’m IN FREAKIN’ JAPAN.  It may be a while before I come back so I needed to eat everything I wanted to eat. Which will explain the insane […]

Cavalia @ Olympic Village, Vancouver

I interrupt the Japan Tour programming to bring you a review on “Cavalia“, a Cirque-esque equestrian show, created by one of the original founders of Cirque-du-soleil, now playing in Vancouver.  It’s probably about time I did something with the “ ‘n About” part of my blog huh… Our show was last night and we had […]

Tsuki no Shizuku 月の雫 – Shin-Osaka

I absolutely LOVED, LOVED LOOOOOOOOOVED our first dinner/meal in Japan.  As we arrived quite late in the day in Osaka, we decided to spend the night at a hotel near the airport in the city of Shin-Osaka.  After we checked in, we walked around in search for food.  We were hungry!! Just across the intersection […]

Eating aboard JAL

Hmm I do wonder how many people actually are interested in airplane food.  Well I’m sure there’s some of you out there… I’ve always had the impression that JAL has pretty good airplane food.  And I was half right.  I thoroughly enjoyed the meal during the flight to Japan.  It could be due to the […]

Annnnd I’m back

Thankfully I was able to get back without much glitches.  I am very very lucky to have been outside of the disaster area when it happened as it would’ve been much, much more chaotic for travellers who don’t quite speak the language.  My thoughts go out to those who weren’t as lucky as me though. […]
