Monday Musings

Monday Musings

Hello, Monday. Yup, the clock struck midnight, I lost my glass slipper, the pumpkin and mice changed back, Sunday rolled into Monday and Somethings became Musings. Then, what seemed like such a short amount of time later,  the clock struck 7:15, Crawley went “scratch, scratch, […]

Sweet Potato & Quinoa Salad

Sweet Potato & Quinoa Salad

Isn’t it weird how a salad always tastes better when someone else makes it? Am I the only one who thinks that?  I mean, I can try and try again to make a salad as good as my favorite little bistro and it just doesn’t […]

Spanish Chicken with Saffron and Almonds

Spanish Chicken with Saffron and Almonds

Spanish-Andalusian style-chicken with saffron and almonds It’s that time of the year where we’re all stuck inside, and dinner should be cooked low and slow.  The slow-cooker or Dutch oven working for hours until the smell fills the house and it becomes unbearable to resist.  […]

Hello, Sunday. Hello you!  I hope that you’re long enjoying your weekend, if applicable. It’s a long one for me, and I feel like I just need it, which is silly since two weeks ago I was still on Christmas holiday in Montreal.  Work-life isn’t […]

Eat the World: Montréal

Well, it’s January and we’re all back at it. Of course I’m suffering from the post-holiday January chest cold and have been settling back into real life in a bit of a miserable state.  However, rather than play the “woe is me, pity me I’m sick […]

Hello, Sunday. Hello, 2017! New year, thank goodness.  While 2016 was seemingly horrible to the collective, I can’t say it was all that bad for me.  Most of it was business as usual, though I did add a furry friend to my household, and Crawley […]

Kifli

Kifli

Hungarian-style kifli, a flaky pastry-like cookie filled with delicious jam! Are you cookie-d out yet?  I was and then I remembered a little thing called moderation and I’m back in the game.  Because let’s be real, I was faced with this: …and I just had […]
