Nickel and Dining

My two cents on making food: easy, healthy and delicious.

Let’s give ‘em something to taco ’bout

…and there isn’t even a mystery to figure out. Last weekend, my big brother, Jon, came to visit me in Calgary. Naturally, we had been talking about the trip for about 4 months before it even happened, because that’s the kind of planners we are – and how excited my family gets when we see […]

Guess who’s bak-lava, back again

Guess who’s back! After a huge hiatus from my blog all summer, I’m feeling motivated to stay inside as Fall creeps on in to write about what I’ve been cooking up in my teeny little Calgary apartment. As it turns out, having a new job in a brand new industry (insurance – so confusing after […]

Californi-YAH baby

So.. it’s May. A solid two months since my last post! Whoops. I should stop writing my introductory phrases as apologies on how long it’s been since my last post. Mid-year resolution.
