One of my all time favourite kitchen appliances is my Vita-Mix. The Vita-Mix is so much more than a blender! I believe it has a 2 horsepower motor that drives the blade inside the container at something like 20,000 rpm. … Continue reading
Sometimes when the load we are carrying becomes unusually heavy we need to hit the pause button in life and have a bowl of soup. Vietnamese pho has been my go-to for comfort in a bowl. However, yesterday I found … Continue reading
If there’s one thing that I really enjoy, it is the total premium steakhouse experience. I love the feeling of a steakhouse. I love the food served in a steakhouse and I love the professionalism of the servers, the dark … Continue reading
Today’s high school cafeteria lunch was a bowl of noodles in a sweet and savoury broth. The spiralized carrots and radish added a nice little crunch to the soup while the steamed spinach created a little bed for the beautiful … Continue reading
