Chicken Taco Chili

Chicken Taco Chili

A few months ago whence from vacation I came, I made this dish. It doesn’t really have a name except for generic Mexican-ish one pot chicken dish, and thus I named it chicken taco chili, but it’s so good that you should just ignore the unappetizing […]

Double Chocolate Babka

Double Chocolate Babka

Funny thing, time. I was sitting around this past weekend, making my to-do, to-see, to-eat lists and I realized that when I set my move date over two weeks ago it seemed like I had so much of it, I’m counting down not months, but weeks, […]

Sunday Somethings

Hello, Sunday. God, the news just makes me sad. Doesn’t it make you sad? We, the US, are so much better than this.  I wish we would just act like it. This is not a space to talk about sad things. The world has enough […]

Sunday Somethings

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 […]

Sweet Potato Chocolate Cake

Sweet Potato Chocolate Cake

See the World: Québec City

See the World: Québec City

Hello!  Let’s take a walk through Québec, shall we? Mushroom and I decided to spend a couple days away from Montreal, and so really early one morning we took the three hour train, and ended up in what only can be described as a fairy tale. […]
