I have no problem eating vegetables but some of you, like parents tricking children, need to find a way to hide your leafy greens in your diet.

Downtown Halifax’s Beaver Sailor Diner outshines its name

By |

So, first it was pho, then ramen (we’re still in love), and now what? It doesn’t matter, we just want to slurp comfort noodles, we want more salt and fat, and I have good news.

This tomato, anchovy and white bean spaghettini might be the best pasta you ever eat. Make this delicious dry pasta in one pot without boiling the noodles separately. Sauce and water in one pot, no kidding.

By |

Primal should be up my alley simply based on philosophy and principle. Although I eat a healthy portion of vegetables, meat protein fills me in a way that puts a smile on my face and lulls me into a sleepy calm (I guess that’s probably a sign of overeating, but I never said I was smart.) Primal has… Read More»

Field Guide: For Fantastic Food

By |

Recently I vacationed to New York City, eating my way around Manhattan and Brooklyn. I lived beyond my means for a week, indulging my senses, and it was all fantastic, but I left with an excitement to go home, and the resonating thought that most of the incredible food I had was on par with what… Read More»
